Cosplayer Laki specializes in Kingdom Hearts. To show how to bring those characters to life, Laki got a wig and worked some hair styling magic.

The result doesn’t look like real-world hair, but rather, what the characters’ locks look like in-game.


Laki does not use any hair wax for the styling, but mainly hairspray. After that hardens, the wig is coated with watered-down Bond glue.

Here are more examples of Laki’s work.
