A.K.A. 18 MINUTES OF WIGGY GOODNESS!
My Facebook followers are to blame for how long this video is. Not only did they ask a bunch of amazing questions but they also requested that I make one long video as opposed to splitting it up into multiple parts - so enjoy!

EDIT, 10/15/13: To reiterate as I've mentioned in the comments: THE WIG I'M WEARING IS NOT AVAILABLE FOR PURCHASE. It was a prototype sent to me by Arda Wigs. Originally it was layered and shoulder-length, then I trimmed it short for my Yuki Nagato cosplay. The color is closest to Arda's "Lavender" shade.

EDIT, 01/14/16: I've updated the links below for current brands I recommend!
