V for Vendetta Wig - Cannot find anywhere!
Post By Shadman. 21/07/12, 06:55 am

Hello!

I am after a V from V for Vendetta wig.
I can buy "official merchandise" ones but apparantly those are rubbish for cosplay.
Would anybody here mind linking me to one that isn't too expensive?

Thanks muchly!

It's always a good idea to post a pic of what you're looking for when asking for help. ;)

I assume it's just a long black wig you're after?
You can have a look on ebay, there tends to be quite a lot at fairly reasonable prices.
I'm sure there are seller review topics on cosplay.com you can have a look at if you're not sure how trustworthy the seller is.

^have a look on trade me as well there are some good wig sellers there and prices are pretty reasonable, just stay away from party wigs I recommend anything made out of kanekalon or toyokalon fibre

Searching for "black bob wig" on ebay returned this. Although I would check out reviews of the sellers and etc.

Trademe!

Edit: I just realised that's not a long bob at all. But you can just style the wigs with hairspray and etc to not be turned in.

Can you straighten wigs?

Some wigs are heat resistant, and they will say so because they're generally better quality and will advertise the fact. You can only apply heat to heat resistant wigs, so do not straighten it with a straightener if it is not. But other ways to straighten wigs are to wet them in warmish water and let it hang somewhere so it can dry straight. Maybe do this a few times. Also combing and hairspray can help.

Hey Shadman, if you find a good source can you let me know please?

Also I don't think V actually uses a very high quality wig or mask, just cheap ones?
