To make the wefts, did you take hair directly from the wig or did you buy packets of extensions/wefts?

I butchered another wig for wefts, as well as buying some loose extensions and made my own wefts.

Ah okay, just curious because I have to make a Sailor Cosmos wig (similar to Sailor Moon only the odango's are heart shaped) and I bought a 51" long wig and sixteen 20" extensions and I keep looking at everything and asking myself "will this be enough"? And I can't find many online tutorials on Sailor Moon wigs (surprisingly) that talk about the wefts.

I'd suggest checking out this lady's gallery. I provided links in the tutorial, as she's the one who inspired me to make my Botan Wig after reading how she made a high ponytail wig. [link]

Also this lady [link] does a lot of Sailor Moon wigs.

I have already consulted Kukki-san already lol! I asked her on how she did the heart-shaped odango's and what-not. I also am on a budged for my costumes, so I couldn't buy too much and I feel like I don't have enough lol. I'll probably have to take hair from the wig to use as wefts though. I can't afford for someone to style it for me either - I'd rather not do that.

Lol! Ah okay. I understand.

Did you look at that other link? The lady does a sort of criss cross thing with the hair in the back. It's something to try, anyway. I did it with another wig that I haven't posted pics of yet.
