When buying a wig you have to think about x, y, z. The wig looked like the left when I bought it. Ufortunately, the Ebay store I purchased the wig from is no longer in operation.
LEGOSHI COSPLAY WIG TUTORIAL
Everything in Legoshi's wig, from the slicked back hair to the spikes, are reasons to want to cosplay him. In this tutorial, Frost_Cos takes you through the steps to style your Legoshi cosplay wig.
Step 1: Buying a wig
Step 2: Measure
Start by setting aside enough hair for the part that needs to be pulled back in the middle, as well as the hair that hangs down on each side.
Put on the wig, and measure how much you can cut off so that it’s not too short or too long for your liking.

Step 3: Tease and spike
Before sculpting the spikes on each side of Legoshi’s wig, create some volume by teasing the hair first. You can find tutorials on how to tease hair here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Vj2isy3f3I0
Now it’s time to make the spikes. Section Legoshi’s wig into the number of spikes you want. Once you have the desired number and sizes, shape them using hairspray and a blow dryer.
The left side is teased, the right side is just cut.

Step 3: Cut the rest
Cut the rest: Put on the wig to get a better understanding of the hair that frames your face. This helps you in not cutting too much, and to understand which parts are the most important.
Step 3,5: Optional lift and colour
Give the sides of the wig a lift by lifting each side up in your desired shape, and steam each side.
To get a more realistic look, you can colour the roots of the wig. Use a very pigmented eyeshadow. I used a grayish blue eyeshadow to get the finish I wanted. Complete the process by using hair spray on the entire wig, so that the eye shadow doesn’t rub off on the rest.
Step 4: Finish
To finish off the wig, fasten the backside of the wig with a hair tie, and cut the hair in the length you feel fits the wig. And there you have it! A beautiful wolf wig specially made to fit the Beastars’ main protagonist Legoshi.
