Gradient Dye Wig Tutorial by Hakuji Gradient Dye Wig Tutorial by Hakuji
I suck at making tutorials. However, I've found out I've needed to gradient dye TWO wigs in the past couple months. I have a lot of people asking me how I did it, so here we go! If you have any questions, feel free to ask me here or at www.facebook.com/hakujicosplay

Is there a way to prevent the dye from coming off on Cosplay?

great tutorial!! do you have any recommendations on dyeing a wig so it is gray or black at the root and then a different color at the tips?

Hey I was wondering if it's okay if I -with credit and everything linking back to your page- post a link to this on a page Im running about cosplays and do-it-yourself tutorials? Only if it's okay with you of course!

Thank you for posting this tutorial! I've been coveting gradient wigs for a while and finding a way to make one myself is a huge help (and probably a lot of money saved depending on the wig vendors)! Do you know if RIT dyes work for pigment? I've seen many wig-dying tutorials recommend using RIT for regular wig dying (and it's the brand I use for dying most things so I already have some on hand), but I've never seen a gradient tutorial until now.

I hope getting the dye in your eyes wasn't too painful or damaging! That doesn't sound very pleasant. Maybe you should pick up some goggles from a craft or hardware store! They're often pretty cheap and definitely worth it if you plan on doing any more gradient wigs. It could be helpful for prop work, too. Just a thought! C:

I've used RIT dye on wigs before, but I personally prefer using India ink for pigment. RIT would work much the same, though, so it would work with this tutorial. :3 I'm glad I could help you with your wig work!

Really great tutorial you have here!

I was wondering, would this work if the dye were darker colours (black and red) instead of pastel/light shades?

My friend actually used this tutorial to dye black over a red wig. He just had to do it many many times. So yes, it's possible, just requires a little more patience.
