Fitting Arda's Jeannie Wig Tutorial by PrettyKitty Fitting Arda's Jeannie Wig Tutorial by PrettyKitty
A while back, a couple friends of mine asked me how I tightened my Jeannie wig, so I posted these pics on my LJ. Then a bit later, Arda Wigs held a tutorial contest, so I decided to make the pics all fancy lookin' into one big pic. Posting in case it helps anyone here~

In one of the last photos, I can see your ear on the side... but even after taking it in, the wig covers my ears almost totally! Because the Jeannie has a skin cap and wefts all around, I don't know how to modify it! Did you do anything extra for the sides?

Did you ever get this sorted out? I have the same problem with the ear tabs, but I found a tutorial:

I haven't tried it yet, but it looks promising...

No, everything I did is right here, sorry. :(

I have a quick question about this wig actually. It says it comes with a clip to go over the existing ponytail, so does that mean the wig is already styled in a ponytail AND goes with one of Arda's ponytail clips? I would really like to know.
I was basically looking at getting a long wig (like Ewoyn) and a clip because I am going to do a World of Warcraft cosplay where the character has a ponytail, but since the graphics are limited/they have preset hair styles, I was going to make a little fuller and unique (since in artwork it looks different then in game). I bought an up style wig from Arda already, a Jasmine...And let's just say I had so much trouble with it I am a little be wary of getting another one lol.

Yes- it's a wig in a short-ish ponytail, plus a clip on. In the bottom photos here- the two on the right that have the braid in it? That's the wig by itself, and the picture on the left is with the clip put on.

Okay, thank you so much. This saves me buying a ponytail clip if it comes with one already.

No prob!
I'm a little confused about the steps after the undoing of the stitches and making small cuts. Where exactly do you cut and what part? Just the cap? the wefts as well? Do you sew it up after?

The basted stitches are to make sure your wig will fit after it's cut. You can see where I drew with a marker where I wanted the wig cap to be. Cut through the wig- That means the cap, the netting, and the wefts (but small cuts to avoid cutting hair) NOT RIGHT ON THE LINE, because, like with sewing, you need seam allowance, and that line you drew is the actual line to sew (or glue) shut.

You could probably get away with stitching the wig without cutting it, but then you'd have a bigger back to the wig.
