Anyways, I have a question. I have a really long wig that I got for my Konata cosplay that has been tangled since the first time I wore it. I've tried for hours at a time to untangle the dang thing but have been entirely unsuccessful. Any ideas?

Long wigs are a pain to untangle. Pop in a DVD you like and sit and do the wig in sections, take your time and relax. That is all you can do, it takes a couple DVDs for me when I have to do my Rapunzel wig. Once its all untangled spray it with Motions, helps keep it from tangling as much.

What is 'Motions'? Is that a wig product or something?

It's a hairspray that works great on wigs. It's gold with a purple lid. You spray a wig let it sit for a day and than comb it out. The oil helps the fibers be slicker.

Okay, Quick Question about the sites to get stuff. Anybody ever use Etsy.com? They have a really nice Rainbow Dash Tail, but I'd like to know if anyone's had any problems or anything with them before I order..

Etsy.com is like ebay, only you sell stuff you make(mostly). So it's less worry about the website as the user your thinking of purchasing from.

Hey there! I was thinking that for AZ 2014 I might cosplay Amulet Spade from Shugo Chara. (This is a BIG might, though.) It's a magical-girl-type character, for those who haven't seen the anime before, and for her weapon she totes around a 6-to-7-foot-tall paintbrush. This is my first time cosplaying, so if any of you have tips on making one, or know if it would even be allowed into the con I'd love the help! Thank you!

I was hoping to get my last minute cosplay done which is Miroku from Inuyasha done and I just need a few words of advice.
First off would he be wearing Geta shoes or just regular bamboo sandals?
