Here she is! The brand new Kitana costume I made for my recent trip to Asia. This entire project was a crazy ride, start to finish, and at times I was questioning my sanity, and how far I was willing to go (and drag my friends down with) for cosplay. But then I look at the photos, and get all fuzzy and happy inside.

Cosplay. For. Life. Nerd. For. Life. <3

Hello, hello, I need your help for a cosplay that I'm doing.
For your Red Queen cosplay, I originally saw it in a cosplay showcase video, and when you put on your crown on top of your wig, it just kind of ... stuck on there instantly like a magnet or something, what did you use for that?? 
Kinuna Featured By Owner Edited Dec 14, 2015  Hobbyist General Artist
U can always use a hair clip like they suggest for mini hats. If u want the crown to b permanent tho I can always go as far as glue, but I wouldnt suggest it, I've heard horror stories of wat happens with wigs and glue if the wig is not kept someplace special practically 24-7.

Possible costume suggestion, first Power Rangers series villainess Rita Repulsa?
aside from that, Keep up the good work.
