How to cosplay Neon Genesis Evangelion Ritsuko Akagi?

Recently, I have seen many questions about Neon Genesis, Evangelion Ritsuko Akagi and how to cosplay Ritsuko Akagi .In my last article, I have written plot and characters in Neon Genesis Evangelion, so if you have no learning about it, you may view it at first.

As to the question how to cosplay Ritsuko Akagi, I want to say it in three aspects.

1. Ritsuko Akagi cosplay costume

If you want to have a very perfect cosplay, costume is the most important thing, your costume must be almost the same as the character you will portray. In Neon Genesis Evangelion, Ritsuko Akagi dresses in a blue and black skirt with a Beige cloak outside.

2. Cosplay wig

Ritsuko Akagi is short yellow hair, so you need a short yellow  cosplay wig. Of course, if your hair is the same as Ritsuko Akagi, you don’t need wear a cosplay wig.

3. Feature

Except for appearance, feature is very important as well, only learn of her features can you portray out her vividly. Ritsuko Akagi is a extremely intelligent girl, so when you cosplay her, you must be very intelligent, then you can be the same as Ritsuko Akagi really!

How to wear cosplay wig?

Blue Curl Vocaloid Miku Cosplay WigFor cosplayers, fashion cosplay wigs are essential thing. Wigs are often useful for cosplay costume . They save you from cutting, dying or styling your own hair, allow you to create insane styles, and you can put one on and be ready to go instantly – it only ever needs styling once! Furthermore, you can sew, glue, and do all sorts of things to wigs which aren’t possible with real hair.But many people have problems when they wear the wig, especially the fist time.

Wig Cap

Wig cap

Wig cap is the basic tool to wear cosplay wig. Try to get a color to match your wig, or a neutral blonde colored one. It’ll hide your hair, secure the wig better and make it more comfortable to wear. You can make one yourself using the foot part of tights, and short stockings are ideal since you can use the foot part and have the thick elasticized top to grip tightly round your head. Whatever you do, your wig cap needs to fit your head tightly, and preferable have a tight band around the edge.

As for getting your hair underneath the wig, wetting your hair is helpful, as can be gel and hairspray, particularly for hiding stray hairs at the edge of your wig cap.

Try pinning or otherwise fixing your hair in position before putting on the wig cap since this will help prevent the wig from shifting while you wear it. How you put up your hair depends on its length and nature.

Some ideas for longer hair:

Twisting your hair up at the back of your head is quick and easy. Wigs stretch most at the back, to the nape of the neck, so this is ideal.

Wrapping your hair around your head will keep it flatter and is less likely to affect the look of the wig once it’s on. Putting your hair into a couple of braids (or more if necessary) then wrapping them round your head is more secure. French braids are also suitable.

For particularly long hair, pin curls are ideal. Take a small strand of hair and twist it until it starts curling up, coil it against your head and pin it in place. Repeat until all your hair is up. Even if you have extremely long hair, it should still fit under a wig using a method such as that.

Once your hair is up, pull the wig cap on from the back. Pull it right down over your forehead, and then shift it back to your hairline to catch any short strands. Hairspray and gel at your hairline is advisable to catch stray strands.

U shaped pin:

As an optional extra, you can pin your wig on. This will keep it in place, stop it sliding back, and make it a lot easier to wear – especially for heavier, strangely styled wigs. U-shaped pins are very OK ^^.
