AtLA Katara Wig by Kimba616 AtLA Katara Wig by Kimba616
Restyled my friend :iconcarladawn:'s Katara wig. :] We're gonna be switching costume for Wondercon in April(I'm wearing her Katara, she's wearing my Suki!) so I'm getting the wig done ahead of time! lol

I took some longer fibers from the bottom to make the hair loopies, and the bun I did by shaping the hair around a toilet paper roll + got2b glued freezing spray + bobby pins and it's done. Nothing fancy, but I like how it came out so I'm posting it!

It looks really awesome!
But how exactly did you shape the bun with the roll and everything ?

You look gorgeous in this wig ma'am. May I ask where you got it? I am trying to find a wig for her currently and I can't find one I like. This has perfect body and wave! So realistic looking on you!

Thank you! It's actually pretty thin, I just know how to present. xD But it's my friend's wig and I've asked her but she can't remember the specific ebay seller she bought it from. Sorry.

Thanks! It probably helps that my roots are now close to this color, so if the wig falls back it'll blend in. lol

:D That looks great! Clever idea using a toilet paper roll. Never thought of that. XD Regardless, great job on the wig. (It looks just like her hair!)

A friend of mine suggested it to me. Apparently she used to do it with her own hair to make it wavy in the morning? lol

That's so neat! .u. It just goes to show that cosplay leads you to the most random, but useful things. XD

KiwiAngel9 Featured By Owner Mar 9, 2011
Yeah, but I can make it look looser like that. Just use a curler to make bigger curls than my natural ones. Like straightening, but with a curler XD And I would have to cut my hair a good few inches.
