Hetalia Ahoge Tutorial by TheonenamedA Hetalia Ahoge Tutorial by TheonenamedA
WARNING: LARGE MOTHER FUCKING FILE!
DOWNLOAD PLEASE!


I've been asked a lot on how I did my ahoge for my America from Hetalia: Axis Powers cosplay, and I said I would have a tutorial up on how to do it. Well, here is it. Prepare for tl;dr.

Yes, my explanations are long, and maybe confusing at times, but this is my first time making a tutorial, I'm really not sure how I'm supposed to go about shortening what I have so, please be patient.

In any case, may this tutorial help fellow cosplayers. Later, I may make character specific tutorials if people ask (such as Greece and Turkey's curls).

Questions anyone?

how long would you recommend to make each weft?

Well I find working with shorter cut wefts is a lot easier to manage, especially if you're working with a glue that dries quickly.  So cutting wefts around 3-4 inches works best for me.

For the tutorial I think I'm using 16 gauge wife, although it's really really weak.  Since making that tutorial I switched to using 14 gauge wire.  Though, sometimes some manufacturers make more pliable wires so your best bet is to try to bend some wire and see how much resistance it has to bending.  I'm not entirely sure what sort of medal the wire I use is but I bought it from a craft store.  You might have some luck finding wire at a a home improvement store too.

Do you have any idea if hair extensions will work in the place of wig weft? I'm using my natural hair for a Nyo!N. Italy, so I don't have any wig weft. Also - do you know if barber shears are about the same as styling shears? This is my first costume/cosplay, so I'm going into this practically knowledge-less. o3o
Great tutorial!

Hair extensions should work fine since they're essentially the same thing with the only difference being wefts are extensions that don't have the clip in them.  And barber shears look to be the same as styling shears (I'm not too well versed in hair styling so I'm not 100% sure, but google images of the two they seem the same).  As long as the shears are sharp then you're good.  Good luck!  You might want to practice cutting a bit to get a feel for using the shears first before diving right into making the hair curl.
