How would you attach these to a wig?

Depends - on some wigs I've created a ponytail, taped off the ponytail and then snipped it and taper-taped it and stuck the taper-tape into the dango opening. Glue around the base before pressing the dango down.

For wigs where you don't have enough hair to spare to make a ponytail stump, you could use a pizza box table (the little plastic Barbie-table-shaped thing that keeps the middle of a pizza box top from touching the pizza) or something similarly shaped from inside the wig, with the pointy ends protruding through the wig cap, and then press those into the odango.

hmm... If you're a beginner level, I'd recommend getting a short bob wig, pinning the bob part down in back (so it looks like it's being pulled up instead of falling down). Then I'd pin/clip extensions on for the ponytail part, make the dango and attach the dango on top of that. Usagi's hair is one of the most difficult to do with a wig (in my opinion) so.... good luck!!

+Myu, this helped me so much!
+And no glue too!!>:'3

+This tutorial, unlike most I have seen, This actually gives clear steps!!!=^,^=

+Cheers and throws confetti all over the place* >w<

+Would this process be applicable to a Cone shape?
+Because I'm cosplaying Bayonetta so I just want to make sure this can be used with hers.xD

+don't want to ruin a good styrofoam cone base. o3o

Hmmmm... I think a cone shape might be more difficult because of the tapered end. You could try the below option (hole in the top and bottom):

But I'm not sure how it would work, depending on how steep the angle is! Good luck!

Oof. Honestly, I'd recommend buying a beehive wig and going to town with colored extensions:

If you do it with styrofoam that big, you'll also have to worry about actually securing the cone to the wig. It'll get heavy and might fall off, too -- these wigs are built to be top/back heavy. :(

But..how to you attach it to the wig?
Because Imma gonna cosplay a Poliwrath Gijinka
( [link] )

So yes, you will tell me how to attach them. OR you can point out where that section is in this tutorial, because I read it twice and if it is in there, then I'm pretty damn retarded.

Hmmm! A couple things:

1. What are you using the the base? Are you doing a true up-do or are you doing to use a bob wig? (I'd recommend the bob -- up-doos are a pain in the butt).

If you go with the bob, I'd say glue the sucker on there. Get a good wig head, pin the bob down, and coat the base of the dango with a generous amount of superglue (not hot glue in this case). Let the glue cure a little in air and then hold it onto the wig until it's set (could take a while).

If you are doing an actual up-do, the best way to secure the dango is to make pigtails in the base wig where you want the dango to go. Then cut the pigtails off so you have a stump. Wrap masking take around the stump and fashion it so it's tightly packed and pointy, then insert the stump into the dango hole.

Good luck!
