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?

eheh so i know that you posted this four years ago, but others are still commenting, and I want to ask a question. I am making an Italy curl (a romano one too but its identical and beside the point) and I got 7 feet of 16 gauge wire today. is that too thick? also will it support the weft fibers and glue and gel and stuff or..?? sorry but I want to get this on the first try as I have very limited weft fibers to deal with.. Anyways, sorry if I should've sent you a note instead of a comment but…yea.

Oh, sorry for the late reply!  Well, for my ahoges I usually use 14 gauge wire, I've used 16 before and it was too thin and weak to support anything larger than America's ahoge.  But play around and bend your wire a bit, if you find it's really easy to bend it and it has no resistance then you'll want to opt for a stronger wire.

I was looking for this exact tutorial, especially for Canada's curl, since I have an AU blog for him on Tumblr. So when my wig gets in, all I can say is thank you, because now I'll be able to finish the cosplay
