    I never thought I would find any kind of instructions for turning a "one size fits all" wig into a wig that will fit my child (for a costume).
    I was delighted to come across thus tutorial. It is the most comprehensive, non-annoying diy video I have ever seen on the internet.
    Thank you times a million!
