So I am going to be cosplaying a character who has two super long, super thick braids going for her.
I am ordering a 60" wig and know the wig fibers the makers use are thick but I need it to be thicker!
Here is a manga cap to give you an idea. :'D

Terrible cap is terrible, I know, but this is seriously the only good image of the braids that is currently out.
Thank you so much in advance and every bit of information is appreciated!

My suggestion would be to add wefts.I know what a lot of people do is just order two wigs and cut wefts from one and sew them in from then.

Also sometimes to make a more fluffy braid with my own hair I pull at the sides after I get the braid done- It looks like this when its done.

I would fake it -- make some sort of core shape out of foam or something, hit it with spray glue, and wrap a thin layer of hair around. You'll probably need extra wefts even with a core, but you might not need as many and might save some on weight.
