Okay, so I promised earlier, and now my hair is dyed blue black, and I'm happy enough with the fail!pics to put a couple up for you to see. Since it's just been dyed, I've decided not to use fixer in it, so it's only pinned back, and it is FLUFFY from having just been washed and blow dried. Haha. Ishida does not have these problems. If anything, it is still a bit long -- but it is still my hair, and I have to go out wearing it, in a non-cosplaying context.
