So, my Sheryl wig arrived today. (Okay, okay, I went to the UPS store and picked it up today, it came a couple of days ago.)
It's a pretty awesome wig, and combined with a wig cap it's pretty easy to stick on, but...well, my eyebrows are so dark they stick out like CRAZY. Am considering a light light bleaching of them...the trick being finding that fine line where they're lightened enough not to stick out so much, but not so light that they look weird with my normal hair when I'm NOT wearing the wig =p

Wish me luck with that. (And you cosplayers, if you have tips, do let me know. And yes, I know I have to be very very careful dying eyebrows, etc; I've worked with bleach before.) :D

On second thought-- Sheryl's bangs go straight across, so Arika might be able to trim them to just the right length so I can see but my eyebrows are covered...? Will consult on Sunday!

The wig looks pretty good. The eye brows don't seem to stand out too much.

Cute wig! Good luck on the eyebrows. They're not that bad IMO, but what do I know? :P

You must go all out with the eyebrows. You just must!

If you want to go the more ghetto route when it comes to eyebrows, you can follow this tutorial:

I'll be trying it myself this weekend to see if I can make my eyebrows reddish for Yoko. I shall post pics in a blog if it looks decent.
If you don't believe the method works (because shoot I was skeptical too since it's GLUE AND PAINT), here are some users' posts with pics of their eyebrows with this method:

Speaking of eyebrows... I wanna try to get mine done. I never have before (it's quite girly to do so and I'm not the type...) but I must have lovely eyebrows for Fanime. I don't need to do it right now since May is a long time from now but still... Yoko has nice thin eyebrows and I do not xP

There are certain makeups to cover up your eyebrows. Its like a white cream kind of thing, and then you blend your concealer/foundation over the white cream. And then! You pencil in your eyebrows.

:] I'm sure you can find it at Sephora or something.

UsagiChan: I think RedRoses' glue idea will do me better. I am so completely fail with any kind of makeup pencil. I only just recently started being able to wear eyeliner, and it's entirely due to finding a really awesome liquid liner.

I don't even want to know what kind of horrible, horrible ways I could turn penciling eyebrows into a disaster =p
