Gambit Wig/ Makeup Test 1 by xHee-Heex Gambit Wig/ Makeup Test 1 by xHee-Heex
My twin :iconhopie-chan: is cosplaying Rogue this weekend at the Dallas Sci-Fi Expo, and she was tasked with styling our friend's Gambit wig. Well, time got away from her, so I told her I'd style it for them. It was a lot of fun! The wig is a Lulu from Arda Wigs, which unfortunately isn't really designed for these kinds of styles; but I managed to get quite a bit of success in using heat from a blowdryer to get the fibers working in our favor!

Once the wig was finished, we just sat there staring at it... it was so hard to tell if it would really work for Remy, so I made a quick black cowl to sit on the wighead with the wig. But... Still, it's so hard to tell! A wig can look completely different on a wighead than it does on a person. So, this happened.

We think it'll work just fine.

I really hope it meshes well with our friend's costume, and I can't wait to see finished photos! :D Hopie's 90's Classic Rogue turned out great, too! I know we'll be posting pics over the weekend on our cosplay page-

So check it out, mon cheri~


This particular hairstyle is based on Gambit in Marvel vs Capcom- see here for a reference comparison. imgur.com/tjTjHnj

Photo note: Yes, the eyes are shooped, but the makeup and wig are not. If I ever cosplay Gambit myself, I definitely think contacts would be amazing!

Excuse me but where did you get your wig and do you know any places I can get good wig styling tutorials? I'm attempting to make Gambit for my boyfriend.

I know it depends on exactly what subject of wig styling you're looking for, but Youtube has lots of great tutorials! You just have to be a little specific in the Search bar. c:

If I did that, I'd never post anything! :XD: Seriously, though, do you have any make-up tutorials you recommend? My make-up skills are basic at best so I'll take any tips you can give me. If you've got the time. Otherwise, feel free not to give any. ^^;

You talented little cosplayer......when I try to use JUST hairspray, it ends up me having it all over my hands, all over the counter, the floor, a little in my eye, and somehow in my hallway.........and then I have to wash the wig... again...... I guess some people have the magic touch and some (me) don't.

A blowdryer is just as important! Always hold what you're hair spraying in place and gently blowdry it to set the spray faster! c:
