September, 29th— I was going through a really difficult personal situation at this point, I had become street homeless (sleeping on benches and in train stations) and felt abandoned by my family and I often felt like none of my friends really grasped the gravity of what I was going through (some did, not saying all didn’t). I didn’t know this was going to happen when I took the commission, of course I didn’t! It was my friend that commissioned me, so I had hoped for some understanding and awareness about my situation. I recall that I offered a refund ―because while I desperately needed money to survive, I was simply not in the headspace to really focus on cosplay at all at this point in my life and didn’t feel comfortable owing anyone something in exchange for money. However, they weren’t interested and insisted I finish it on time for them―I don’t recall them being willing to accept that it would be delayed for understandable reasons if they did want me to follow through. It put me under a lot of pressure, but I didn’t want to be selfish so I did finish it for them. I ended up styling it while I was staying with a host family for a night (luckily for them, I wasn’t stuck outside with the elements, but I was essentially in a stranger’s house. Felt very disrespectful and embarrassing). I’m not saying my friend is a bad person, I think perhaps they were one of the individuals that didn’t completely grasp the gravity of my situation, maybe assumed I was being overdramatic, and were perhaps accustomed to life being comfortable for everyone around them. Who knows, I like to give the benefit of the doubt and hope that it was simply ignorance of my predicament. I don’t think I would concede or offer options if I ever went through something like this again (though I really hope I never will, the experience was harrowing), I would insist on the refund and focusing on my own needs above theirs, as selfish as that sounds, I found myself in unprecedented circumstances that warranted a bit of selfishness. We live and learn, don’t we? Despite all of this, the wig still came out looking alright; which is quite frankly a surprise considering where my head was when I worked on it.
It was shortly after this that Albert Kennedy Trust got me in contact with another charity organisation that happened to have housing available, I signed the tenancy and started living there by around the start of October. After a few days settling in, I began to feel restless and eager to feel like myself again―engaging with a hobby like cosplay helped me achieve that. I didn’t have much that I could work on, but I did bring a few things with me.
5th— I’m really annoyed about myself over failing to rescue many wigs, this is one of them! Particularly since this one was also a gift, so the fact I failed to fix it and get any use out of it plagues me whenever I see images of it.
It was frizzy and I hadn’t any straighteners or much else with terms of styling, I genuinely thought the wig couldn’t be salvaged―this isn’t only due to my own ignorance, I recall trying to search online for tutorials on rescuing frizzy wigs and all I found was some moron saying short of meticulously pulling every individual strand straight and ironing it out, there was nothing I could do.
So, I ended up hacking off the frizzy sections. I wish I held off; it was only a year later I bought a set of hair straighteners and have rescued worse off wigs. Hindsight = 20/20. I did cut it short and style it, where the fibres were still presentable and nice, and gave it to a friend who needed a short purple wig for something.
I do have a selfie of myself wearing it, but that’s all the use I got from this unfortunately.
The hoodie (also a gift) also later passed on to a friend who wanted it for a cosplay, and at the time I had intention of ever getting any use out of it myself. I’m not proud of any of this; I feel I was very disrespectful with these gifts I was given (mostly the hoodie, the wig was just ignorance and lack access to better tools and information).
13th— Made further progress to wefting Rufio’s wig. I’m grateful for my friend’s patience and the lack of deadline on this, I ended up giving her a full refund (plus a tip for her trouble) anyway and sent the wefted wig to her as a gift to do whatever she wanted with it.
17th— I used my old Sasuke wig to style into a wig for Zack for Sweet Nemesis, I can’t remember what I was showing her here, but it’s proof I was working on the wig I guess.
23rd— More styling to Sweet Nemesis’ Zack wig.
25th— Lace front and more styling done!
And now we’re at MCM weekend, so I’ll be making that into a separate post~
