✨💎PHOSPHOPHYLLITE WIG INFO💎✨
I didn't take enough photos for a full blown tutorial, but I've gotten several questions about this wig so I tried my best to explain the process! 💕
The wig base is an @ardawigs Vivien in Emerald Green. The color was the hardest choice, but I'm happy with the greener base and incorporating blues on top!
I cut my wigs with thinning shears and style with got2b hairspray and a hairdryer. This was finished before mapping out the fancy stuff.
The holographic pieces are Worbla TranspArt. Some were first tinted with iDyePoly in Blue (I saw that they also have turquoise-that might be a better option!)
All of the pieces have light blue headlight film for the shine. I got the idea from @schmemy who used it for a kickass foam Cinnabar wig 💕 Teal glitter vinyl was added in a few spots for another texture and color. °
I planned everything out by holding pieces of paper next to the wig, tracing the rough shape of the style, and cutting it out, adjusting until I was happy with the pattern. Then I taped the pattern to the worbla and cut it out.
The tricky part was the headlight vinyl (the ratings were poor for this brand, but it had the best color I could find with fast shipping). Cut a piece slightly bigger than what you need, peel the cover film as you go in small sections and press down the sticky side starting at the center and moving towards the edges. It isn't completely sticky at first, so you can peel it back up and press to remove large bubbles. It's hard to see the imperfections when attached to the wig so don't sweat it too much. Just another fun texture! Trim the excess film when your happy with the placement.
The pieces were then shaped with a heat gun, holding them gently near the wig head as they cooled and set.
I just hot glued everything on and it held better than expected, I didn't end up reinforcing with E6000 and nothing fell off. Woo! I suggest adding pieces from bottom to top and hiding the glued areas under hair sections or opaque glitter vinyl. Again, it's hard to see glue blobs in the light so don't stress 💕
