“The most important part of getting this look right is the mane. I bought three of the same rockstar wig that was long, brown, with white highlights. I sewed one wig under the back of my main wig to give the wig more fullness. Then I attached the third wig from each of my ears down around my chin. I had to cut this third wig from the edge into the center so it acted more like a strip of hair then a wig. I then googled a picture of a lion and cut the hair (hack-job style) into a lion-like mullet – shorter on top and longer as it goes down the sides and front. Then tease tease tease and spray black. Et VOILA!”
