Arda's Iron Wig Contest - Round 6 Entry by xHee-Heex Arda's Iron Wig Contest - Round 6 Entry by xHee-Heex
For this challenge, we were given a Jareth and a package of Long Wefts after first choosing two colors that we thought complimented each other. Only after we received the materials did we learn that we needed to style a wig inspired by an animal or fictional creature. As soon as I saw these colors together, I knew that I wanted to do something sweet, soft, and fluffy! They're just so beautifully GIRLY, and that's an aesthetic that I've honestly never really stepped too far into with my wigs before, so I was excited!

I thought a mythical faun fit this idea very well, and I went from there! I'm very happy with the volume I was able to get into the base wig, as it's so big that it adorably dwarfs my model's face! I think the wig has a personality and character on it's own, which is very sweet and soft, but also quiet. I don't think a wig has to visually scream it's complexity in order to be styled well, and I hope you all enjoy it as much as I do!

Now then... if only I can find a way to get Hopie to take it off already...

This is about the cutest thing I've ever seen done with a wig! TuT Doesn't help that I'm in love with sheeps/rams at the moment.
You're damn amazing

I can't blame Hopie, I'd never take that wig off :P

Seriously, that wig looks so wonderfully light and fluffy, and the muted colors work so well together! Congrats on an awesome job!! :hug:

I'm just so in love with this wig - it's so whimsical and the air of fantasy that it exudes is just stunning. I'm always blown away by your talent when it comes to wig styling. <3

This is really beautiful. The colors look wonderful together, and your concept is amazing!! Wonderfully shot as well. Love the contrast between the fluffiness of the blue part and the strength of the shape of the pink horns.

Thank you so much! I was hoping I could create some kind of hard and soft contrast, so I'm glad it was able to come through a little!!

You are just amazing you know that?  :3 And I seriously love this wig.  I wish you two lived closer so I could invite you to the Mythology cosplay group I am doing at Katsu.  This would have been perfect for group and with the scenery at the Gaylord Hotel >////<

I bet it is! xD It looks fluffier than my cat, and that's saying something, cause he is named 'Fluffy' xD

Only it's too bad that ArdaWigs have no new videos on youtube :/ I would love to see all the other entries also (I was lucky to find you on deviantart :))

WAAAAAH! I don't do this much, but I'm fangirling. I've ALWAYS been such a huge fan of you and your wigwork. I didn't even know false hairlines were possible until I saw that wicked cool Persona wig you styled! And then there's your Seymour and your HiNaBN cosplays and your Linebeck and I'll stop now. *o* So thankyouuu!!!
