Guide on buying wigs [North Shore, Auckland]
Post By Kicho. 09/11/09, 08:34 pm

Hello. >_> I've become a little obsessed with wigs in the last few weeks and so I'm going around town to find cheap places to get wigs for cosplaying. Very Happy

Now I know that Trademe sells all the colours of the rainbow, but after having a look there, I don't think the prices are that great, especially if you include postage

So here are some reviews for the stores I've been to!

Please note this is a work in procress. ._. Also note that despite what the shop signs say, be aware that most of these wigs are around $7-10, not $2. (Don't you miss the day when $2 stores only sold $2 items?)

If you want to contribute to this, please don't hesitate to do so!

Please let me know if you find this useful. ;___; It's all I ask to keep me going.

======TAKAPUNA======

Name: "The 123 Mart: Nothing over $10!"
Address: Will add later (Something like 602 Lake Rd). Right beside Inlane Revenue.
Review: Only afro party wigs in horrible colours. Don't go there.
Photos: Will add later

Name: "D($2)llar Plus"
Address: 27(?) Hurstmere Rd. Close to the post office, next to Just Value.
Review: Great collection of wigs for $10. The shorter wigs are better quality than the longer haired wigs. Note that there are more wigs in the back of the shop that they have on display, so ask them for assistance.
Photos: Will add later

Name: "Just Value: Get better 'n' more"
Address: 25(?) Hurstmere Rd. Close to the post office, next to D($2)llar Plus.
Review: Small collection of wigs. Short ones are ~$9, the longer ones cost around ~$12. Note that there are more wigs in the back of the shop that they have on display, so ask them for assistance.
Photos: Will add later

Name: ??? (Sorry, I'll have to check this one up).
Address: Somewhere on Hurstmere Rd. Close to Just Value.
Review: A collection of party wigs. Quite pricy, around $18.
Photos: Didn't take any.

Name: Dollar Store 123
Address: In one of the shopping alleys on Hurstmere Rd (not the alley with Vagabond). Close to the carpark used for the Sunday Market.
Review: No wigs, just this... white half wig... thing. See photos.
Photos: Will add later

======WAIRAU PARK======

Name: Jeff's Emporium
Address: Approximately 12 Link Dr. Bright and yellow, across the road from Spotlight.
Review: A HUGE collection of wigs. You have view them from the back of the store, as they are on the ceiling. A bit pricy (~$18), but worth a look at.

Spoiler:


Name: Spotlight
Address: 19 Link Drive. Next to Freedom Furniture.
Review: Wigs are the generic party wigs (the same as the ??? I listed in Takapuna). Pricy, around $18 each.

======NORTHCOTE======

Name: C($2)in W(more)rld
Address: In that cluster of shops inside the Northcote Shopping Centre, close to the post office.
Review: Wigs the same as the D($2)llar Plus wigs in Takapuna, but the collection might be smaller. However, they are cheaper - $7.90! I can't be sure if this is for all the wigs, or only the short ones.
Photos: Will add later.

Name: 123 Dollar Store
Address: In that cluster of shops inside the Northcote Shopping Centre, close to the GP medical centre. Huge green doorway, can't miss it.
Review: Wigs the similar to the D($2)llar Plus wigs in Takapuna, but the collection ise smaller. However, they are cheaper - $7.90! The longer ones are a few dollars more expensive. They also sell hair extensions for ~$14, which is a bit pricy.
Photos: Will add later.
