Here I am with another haphazardly planned wig tutorial. We’re going to be trying to make a wig for Jolyne Kujo from Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure. Please keep in mind that this isn’t the only or the best way to make a wig for her, it’s just the way that I did it. Also, in this tutorial I use a base wig that may not be available when you use this tutorial, and it also might be a color that you don’t want to use. I’ll try to explain what to do if you aren’t using the same base wig that I am, but I may forget a few details. If you have any questions, feel free to send me something in my ask box.
You will need:
- A base wig (I used this wig but you could also use a wig that is at least mid-neck length and wefts)
- A long wig in a different color (mine was green)
- hot glue and a hot glue gun
- basically any kind of papery tape (like masking tape or painter’s tape)
- paint the color of your base wig
- a few ponytail holders/rubber bands
- scissors (I hope this goes without saying…)
Styling the wig:
Part one: bangs
- Chop off the hair bangs/fringe at the front of your base wig. By that, I mean cut them really really short, until you can see the wig netting.
- Chop off the bangs of your green wig. This time, I mean cut into the netting and separate the bangs/fringe of your wig from the rest of the wig. You will be able the tell the difference from the inside of the wig because the netting looks different (more like a circle). You will need half of that circle (with the skin top attached if the wig has one). Pin the fringe onto your base wig in the same position that the base wig’s original fringe was. Then hot glue it on.
- That’s it that’s basically the bangs
Can I interject and say that somebody on Facebook tried to tell me that I could reuse a Jolyne wig for a Juri Han cosplay?
I would be really impressed if someone could do that.
Part 2: buns
- At this point it makes a bit of difference whether or not you got the same base wig as me. If you got wefts plus a different wig, get your wefts out. If you got the same wig as me, remove the buns that come with the wig from the wig itself. They should be sewn onto the wig with thick black thread, and if you pull the bun a bit from the wig itself, you can see the thread and cut it easily. Then, remove the ponytail extensions from the buns that are tied in the wig’s hair. They will come off in a few wefts sewn onto some netting.
- Use your wire to make the shape of Jolyne’s buns. In the picture above, the green shows how I wrapped the wire to make the shape. I also secured the position of the wire by hot gluing the points where the wire crossed over itself.
- Cover the shape completely with your tape, then paint it the color of your base wig. You only need to paint the outside.
- Next, use your wefts to cover the bun shape. Wrap the hair around the bun in whichever direction you choose. Hold the hair in place by putting hot glue on the tape bun and then wrapping the hair over the glue.
- Spray the finished bun with hairspray, then run your fingers over the bun in the direction of the hair to smooth any flyways.
Part 3: braids
To be honest, this part should be pretty self explanatory.Cut out some wefts from the wig and braid them, then hot glue them around the buns. Take thicker portions/more wefts, half them up, and glue the tops of the wefts inside the buns, then braid those together.
Part 4: finishing up
Hot glue around edges of buns, put them on the wig where you think they look best. Jolyne’s buns sit pretty high up on her head but if you used the same base wig as me, the pre-set ponytails will limit your placement a little. I don’t think it really was a problem for my wig, but that’s something to keep in mind.
THAT’S IT YOU’RE DONE WOOHOO
By the time I made this tutorial (August 2013) I hadn’t finished the rest of my Jolyne cosplay so I didn’t have many final pictures to post. I plan to debut it at ALA 2014 so if it’s past that date when you read this, I might have some pictures on my blog.
So I found this super awesome video that explains what all the menus in ASB say! (even training mode!) If you have/are getting ASB you should TOTALLY SAVE THIS VIDEO FOR REFERENCE YEAH

Character Customize and Medal List’s submenu just has a list of all the characters in the game. Customize lets you change the manga effects on characters, the poses, dialogue, etc. Shouldn’t be hard to understand how it works.
Player Card lets you customize your game info for other people to see. First option in the Player Card menu lets you select the character you want on the card, second option is Trade Card List (guessing you get people’s cards as you play them online or something)
