Buying Cosplay Wigs; No Ebay Required

Nothing completes a cosplay quite like a good quality wig that is thick, shine-free, heat resistant and the perfect colour. The challenge comes when searching for the perfect wig, it isn’t an easy task, especially when going through the endless sea of Ebay praying you end up with a wig that looks like the picture. There are websites to save you from this trouble! Here are a few of the best!

Arda wigs, this one is a little pricey, however, Arda wigs is one of the best online wig stores, consistently selling high quality, thick, shine-free wigs in a huge assortment of styles and colours. This store is a store I will recommend to everyone!

Epic Cosplay Wigs, Again a little on the pricey side but worth it. These wigs are so thick soft and beautiful. They also range in a variety of styles and colours perfect for nearly every cosplay!

Cosplay Buzz.
This store is great for character specific wigs at a much lower price. These wigs are not as high quality as arda or epic cosplay, however, they are still great wigs that aren’t too shiny and are fairly thick. It’s a great store for cosplayers on a budget.

All Wigs

The Five Wits.
This store is a more lesser known store, however the wigs are amazing! Very thick, very soft, and not shiny at all! This store also specializes in character specific wigs to save you a little effort in the styling!

Cosplay Success, isn’t Without Some Struggle

Making costumes and going to conventions is a lot of fun. However, with this fun comes problems and what does a cosplayer do when something goes wrong? They share their hilarious cosplay mishaps on Twitter.

Problems like finding needles in unexpected places

Problems like the constant battle to keep your fabric flat when patterning

When your bobbin runs out and you don’t notice right away

And we cant forget the constant last minute all nighter the night before the con

So, basically cosplay isn’t all fun and glamour. Sewing isn’t an easy task but the final product makes all the struggles worthwhile.

Low budget? No Problem

Cosplay is known to be an expensive hobby whether you make your cosplay or buy it.

How do you make a cosplay on a low budget?

You get creative.

Scales made with fake nails and nail polish? Perfection

Who says you need to use fancy material to make a visor? Plastic bottles work just fine!

Not all budget cosplays have to be serious, make a humorous cosplay instead!

In the end cosplay doesn’t have to cost you an arm and leg! Just be creative and you can create great cosplays on low budgets. After all cosplay is all about having fun so don’t stress yourself out thinking you can only use high cost materials.
