Rainbow cybergoth raver outfit - wig by German-Blood Rainbow cybergoth raver outfit - wig by German-Blood
My Rainbow Vomit cybergoth outfit is finally finished, and to show it off I've decided to make a compilation of pictures for my wig. Other shots will be uploaded, but this is specifically for the wig. :)

And yes, I made this. :giggle: lol It took a LOT of effort and patience, but I was able to get it just right. :phew: I think the most time-consuming parts were making the dreads, and the spikes. The dreadlocks took me pretty much all day to backcomb (I also kept losing bristles from my pet brush >.< ) and the spikes are made of bubblewrap and yarn, so you can imagine wrapping 6 spikes with thin layers of yarn string around the spikes. The rest was just sewing in the ribbon, rexlace, conduit tubing, and cyberlox and knowing where to place them.

Materials:
- One short black wig base.
- Kanekalon dreadlocks (pink, neon yellow, blue, kiwi green, & black)
- Black conduit tubing
- Duct tape
- Organza ribbon (blue, orange, green, & purple)
- Misc. ribbon (rainbow grossgrain, pink glitter, & rainbow ric rac)
- Crin tubing (neon yellow & purple)
- Bubblewrap yarn spikes
- Zip-ties (blue, pink, & green)
- Electrical wiring (red, orange, yellow, green, blue, & purple)
- Rexlace (pink, yellow, green, blue, & purple)
- Nonslip rubber matting

Thank ya! :dummy:
Meh, I call them spikes instead of dreads (that's just me). :shrug: I think they would look more like dreads if they were smaller, more prominent and less bulky like the ones I have in this wig. lol

Thank you so much!!! :la: I tried as best as I could to keep it the rainbow theme without too many dark colors or light pastels, and I'm glad it turned out decent. :D Hehe!

This is completely amazing! I mean...WOW!
I adore all of the colors you've used along with the materials. It's such a wide assortment.
And those huge raindbow spikes: they have to be my favorite aspect of this wig. When I first saw them I thought they were made of some sort of plastic but the close-ups showed they were yarn. I was flabergasted to say the least in thinking of how heavy those spikes were...but bubble wrap was an ingenious idea for creating a stable yet light weight filling.
I can't wait to see you make those other CyberGothic outfits you drew out.

:happybounce: Oh my goodness, you're so incredibly sweet! :iconiloveyouplz:
Yeah, I was hesitant at first with the bubblewrap/yarn spikes, cause they were actually a last minute idea that I experimented with towards the end of the wig-making process. I rolled up the bubblwrap into a cone and thought, 'this is light weight...now how can I color this without making a mess? :plotting:' and that's when I figured out that the wrapped yarn was the best (it's colorful, soft, and it beats spray paint by a long shot). :D Sure enough they were light-weight enough to stand up on end in the wig, and they turned out better than I thought.
Again thank you so much for the sweet compliment. :tighthug:

:la: No, thank /you!/
I adore seeing your unique outfits and the different ways you get around having to use overly costly materials while still having a lovely piece made overall.
I'll be patiently waiting for the next. O u O
