Blue Lion Head by Beetlecat Blue Lion Head by Beetlecat
The character here is actually a dragon hybrid, but the dragon doesn't show much in the head (aside from the colour) so lion works for the title :p

The hair was wefted, attached, cut and styled by me according to the character reference. It's not a premade wig.

The fur is a very light blue seal fur (a style of short and soft fake fur) that I airbrushed blue shades and highlight into. The hair and long pile fur began white and were also airbrushed blue to match the face fur.

It's Kanekalon fibers. Fake hair such as used in wigs, not fake fur.
