So far I keep my resolutions up and have read more than my minimum of two books this month. Also, I wrote this post, and with minor delay, I represent to you everything I finished in February! I’ll keep it short and spoiler-free as always. Please read on and feel free to share you opinions and reccomendations with me! 🙂
I know I am really late with this post but I still wanted to share that I have been to the Distant Worlds concert in Berlin last Sunday (13/04/14) and give you a short recap. For those of you, who are unfamiliar with Distant Worlds: This is a concert series of music solely from the Final Fantasy games. The project has been launched in 2007 and the wonderful songs by Nobuo Uematsu have been brought to stage under the conduction of Arnie Roth. So how did I like it? What happened and how was it special in comparison to other video game music concerts? Please read on to find out! 🙂
Today I want to show you how to achieve the hairstyle of the wonderful black mage Lulu from Final Fantasy X. Her hair is really long and thick, so if you’re doing this for cosplay you might want to use a wig or at least hairpieces. Since I was just doing it for fun, I used my natural hair and a few tricks to make the bun look larger. When using hairpieces the sock bun steps might not be neccessary, but the general anatomy of the hairstyle is still applicable. Anyways, this is how it’s done:
One of the most frequently cosplayed characters from Final Fantasy VII is probably Aerith (or Aeris), the flower girl. Her hairstyle is really simple, but for most people impossible to achieve, because she has incredibely long and thick hair. So I suggest that everyone, who is looking this up for a cosplay and doesn’t have Aerith’s superhuman hair, should get a wig and/ or some clip-in extensions to thicken the hair. This braid really takes away alot of length, expecially if you want it to be thick and therefore braid it very tightly.If you braid loosely, like I did in the picture, it will become a little longer, but less voluminous and durable.
The style itself is called a rope braid. It is really easy to achieve and a nice everyday hairdo. Without further ado, this is how it’s done:
