Matsumoto 2 - Rave: Original by HoodedWoman Matsumoto 2 - Rave: Original by HoodedWoman
So, most of my friends always attend the convention rave events. Not that I have anything against them, but they don't typically fit my style. I'm more of the...let's go to the bar type.

Regardless, for Otakon I decided that I was going to go. So, I made a rave version of Matsumoto. I figured this would give me a good reason to go...and I wouldn't skip out.

There was really no reference art to speak of, I just kind of went with something I thought Matsumoto would wear...especially to a dance event.

Ahhhhmygod this is amazing! Where did you find that wig? I'm cosplaying as Rangiku for Anime Boston and the wig is the one thing I don't have covered because I can't find one I'd be happy with.

I'm really sorry. I wish I could tell you but it was so long ago I really can't recall. :(

Well that's too bad. Was it an online thing?
Either way your cosplay is amazing, and I wish I had dat wig :)

Yes, I did buy it online, though it wasn't layered when I bought it if I remember correctly. So sorry I can't be more help with it...I do wish you good luck in finding one that will work for you though.

Alrighty, thank you. I'm sorry if I'm asking too many questions, but did it come with the volume in the front or did you have to make the bangs stand up yourself? If so, how? I'm new to wigs and very picky about cosplay details

No, no. You're fine! I'm happy to help. The wig didn't come with the volume that much I remember.
I cut layers into the sides/front (it was a blunt cut). Then using a blow-dryer on low heat and hairspray I styled the bangs from the base of the wig. Very much like you do your own hair when you want to add volume you start from the roots and pull it up, same thing. You just have to do it very carefully with wigs because of the heat.

Okay, that sounds easy enough to do. I'll try it, thank you! May I feel free to send any other questions I have along your way?

I enjoy the outfit of this character. Is this anime dubbed or in another language?

Hmm, no it was just an original design I threw together for the character Matsumoto Rangiku from Bleach.
