Annie Leonhardt Wig WIP by BleachcakeCosplay Annie Leonhardt Wig WIP by BleachcakeCosplay
Work on my Annie wig for AB 2014. After doing Tetra's crazy bun, I was confident I could tackle Annie. It was very simple, though it still needs a little thinning and spray.

How is the bun attached to the rest of the wig?

wow you really suit Annie! Your wig is also gorgeously styled. But how did you get the back of the wig so sleek and to stay in place? Did you use hairspray, or something else to style it?

It would be great if you could put up a tutorial. I have been struggling with her bun for a month. :/

Hm well i don't actually have any more wefts to do a tutorial. It really wasn't an exact science =/  Just a lot of mashing hair around a bunched up piece of felt with hot glue.

Blue Steele... isn't that pretty short in the back? Like choppy short? Yours looks longer on top *much confusion* :iconetoplz:

It is short in the back =0 I brushed some of the longer bang pieces back. I debated between using the Blue steele or even the magnum to pull back a bit.

But can I ask you were you bought the wig? 
I want to cosplay Annie at an upcoming con but I can't find a wig I like :/

I bought the base wig from Arda in platinum blonde, then used some left over platinum blonde wefts I had, also from Arda, to make the bun =)

I think one of the things I love the most, is that you practically have Annie's nose.

Haha, thank you! It's very prominent when I smile, but that's not something I'll be doing as Annie XD
I have a naturally curved nose, though =) Lucky for me, this seemed like just the cosplay for it!

That's a nice wig but unless you're planning to sell it, why not just put your own hair up if you're a natural blonde?

This is what it looks like with my real hair up. Obviously too dark and my bangs quickly become a bit messy and limp.

Haha I'm very picky about color and such. I very very rarely use natural hair for cosplay.

Well for a few reasons:
- I have dark blonde hair and I would rather not bleach my hair platinum blonde for personal and professional reasons.
- My hair, along with most humans, is not thick enough to achieve the anime look.
- Her bun cannot be styled naturally to look identical to the model in the anime without lots of pins and elastics in view. I wanted it to be seamless and accurate to the style in the anime.

There is something called the Hairdini styling wand that can add volume to your hair and create the illusion of thickness for people with thin hair without a ton of pins and elastics.

I can achieve that look naturally since I have a lot of hair but mine is black, not blonde so I'd have to wear a wig if I wanted to cosplay as Annie but being Asian, I'd look better as Mikasa.

Well it's much easier to style a wig while it's plopped on a wig head rather than trying to mess with my own hair. I suppose I just prefer wigs over natural hair 95% of the time.

I see. For me, wigs are kind of itchy and uncomfortable so I prefer to use my real hair whenever possible :)

I usually don't wear them unless I have no choice; last time I cosplayed as Holo from Spice and Wolf and the bangs kept getting in the way and poking my eyes :p I usually wear wigs if the character I'm cosplay as has a hair color that is not natural for people in real life like blue, green, purple, etc. :)
