Simon Petrikov Progress by xHee-Heex Simon Petrikov Progress by xHee-Heex
Man, I have no time to finish this costume before Easter weekend and yet I'm so pumped!!

I've spent the last two days laying and styling hair for Simon's beard and mustache (8 hours for the beard, 5 for the mustache), and still have the eyebrows to go!

Originally I was going to hand-tie the pieces, but unfortunately I bought wig lace that was too fine (or rather, the holes were too small) for the ventillating needles that I had! So instead I decided to "float" the beard and mustache, basically using spirit gum and pros-aide (I only used both because I wanted to experiment and see which worked best) to hand-lay the beard onto the wig lace and creating a premade piece that can be worn multiple times. I think the reason it took me so long was because the adhesives did NOT want to stick, so I had to do a lot of retouching and holding things in place. I'm really happy with the results though!

Here's a photo of my progress- the blue 5 o'clock shadow area on the wig head is because I used my face makeup to color the wig lace before applying the hair. -> [link]

The wig is a Jareth from Arda Wigs and is currently just teased! I still have so much to do!

This is not terrifying at all.

Amazing job on the wig styling! It has a really natural shape.

That is called a wighead and a wigstand, my friend. Don't fret.

I believe his right lense has a crack.

I hadn't done the "cracking" in those photos yet, but yes! One of his lenses is broken.
