Hello! I am selling a Human Sacrifice version of Kagamine Len from Vocaloid that I never worn after I bought on the Marketplace.

Black streaks are easy to add in. You can go one of two ways: One is to get a black sharpie and color in your streaks as you see fit. Rinse the wig until all the excess comes off and it should be okay. The only known issue with that is that sometimes you won't get the black color you really want.......

Personally, I believe wig two would be the best choice for Hayley's hair. The only reason I say that is because the blonde is already in there whereas the other two, you would need to add it in. The style of three is almost dead on to Hayley's but there's no blonde and the other one is the same way....

Unfortunately, to get her light shade, a lightener is required and then a toner to get the bluish shade.

Buuut, if you don't mind that it'll look like crud, a spray on color works just fine too. Otherwise, you'll have to deal with a semi permanent that washes out in 4-6 ish shampoos.

Ever heard of backcombing? They use it on dreadlocks but believe me, your hair will be able to flatten back out. For the bangs, you backcomb your own hair until you get that sheer volume she does and for the pigtails, tease!

Hairspray with gel will produce that look.

You can use regular foam, that's just fine, but be prepared for a little growling just because sculpey -for some reason- just doesn't like to stick to it as naturally as it does to wood or some other things.
