Marshall Lee The Vampire King by tessucosplay Marshall Lee The Vampire King by tessucosplay
So last year I did a crappy test of Marshall with whatever I had in the house at the time! But recently I finally got around to doing the costume correctly. Better shirt, wig, makeup, fangs, prosthetic ear tips . . . better everything really! :D
I had enough time to make the axe bass as well! It's just made from mdf, the skull at the end is made from apoxie sculpt, strings are silver soutache braid, then small bits of dowel for the extra details.
I got to cosplay this with my closest friends in an amazing Fionna and Cake group ~ and it was honestly the most fun I've had at a convention in a long time. We were blown away by how much everyone enjoyed our group!

This is an amazing cosplay!! Im really stuck on how to cut my wig, any tips? Mine has all the hair coming from a point at the centre top of the wig and the layers at the sides come down to my chin. Its the second wig ive had to style and im very nervous. I love how yours is done. Every time i think im getting somewhere with my wig, when i brush it it looks the same as it did before cutting...losing hope haha

Thank you so much! 

As for tips ~ I cut this from a much longer wig, it nearly sat on my shoulders. I use a mixture of scissors and a razor blade to get lots of nice layers in in.  I also use my straightener to rough up the wig fibers (by running it lightly up and down the wefts) to give it more volume.  

Then when it comes to styling it, I used hairspray for the basic shape and hair clay to finish off all the individual parts.  I also use eyelash glue to glue down all the bits which rest on my face so they don't move during the day :D  

I hope that's somewhat helpful!!

Go slowly and do it a little bit at a time ~ keep trying on the wig each time you cut a little more off so you know what it's going to look like on you!

Best of luck with it!!!!

Do you have any idea what you are going to cosplay?
Or shall you keep it a secret and stun us all on the day?
