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.
umm sorry to bother you.....but i'm gonna cosplay Usagi/Serena Tsukino from Sailor Moon in one of her school uniforms....so umm eto....I was wondering how I could use these to get her hair buns and .....all that hair....that hangs down -_- all the other tutorials are too hard for me to follow! fangs and kisses, Tsubaki
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!!
I found a tutorial that looks great and along with yours i should be able to do it XD I'm buying a long....long honey blonde wig from Epic Cosplay Wigs and i'm gonna order wefts in the same color and do it slowly bit by bit
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.
