Loose Kanekalon? D8
Post By Pyro. 05/06/10, 07:58 am

I want to get some loose kanekalon so I can do a lace front widow's peak on my {...} wig, but Cosworx won't ship to NZ right now for some reason and I can't find anywhere else that has them cheap enough. I would order off, say, Doctored Locks, but that'd be outrageously pricy-- like, the shipping would be three times the price of the fibres.

So, does anyone know where I can get loose, cheap kanekalon? Or even wefts? I don't know, I just really need to find somewhere to order off because I want to start making my {...} wig. :C

(I'm hasty about this because I had a nightmare last night where I went to DO and my wig was unfinished but the rest of my cosplay was done. Sob-sob. It was terrifying. I had to wear casual clothes to it in the end.)

I don't know what kanekalon is, but you should totally make sideburns.

It is a bug on the Cosworx website, an error occurs when you select shipping to ANY country other than the US. They still ship here. I've emailed them about it and I'll let you know if I hear a reply =]

What's the fiber like on those? I'm loving the price, but they look really frizzy. Are they? Does the frizziness straighten out with one of the various straightening methods? (I'm lace fronting a wig as well, hence my curiousity! XD Thanks!)

@JVCA yes the fibers do straighten out with straightening methods, i used hot water and comb, with no problem at all, when i made myself no-sew welfs

@Pyro glad to help, the store may seem slightly creapy sexshopist but the ladys who run the store are really really nice, and are very helpfull

That's great to hear. Very Happy It turns out that Sinister don't have the shade of blonde I need, so I'll probably just order an XL punky from cosworx and steal the fibers from the length. XD

I make all my dreads from loose kanekalon fibre, sinister is too costly.

It's cheaper to get it from HERE-> http://www.ikickshins.net/


ALSO
They have loose monofibre<? (I thinks thats what its called....its like kanekalon but you can straighten curl dye etc.)

if you do ever decide to order from there, may i jump in and order stuffz too? could possibly make it worth while if cheaper postage?

I don't mean to get too off-topic, but @Suixelo: Didn't Cosworx say it was a problem with the production line? I thought they were just out of stock for nearly everything. Are you sure it's just a shipping bug?

I've been waiting for my wig caps for far too long, y'see...

My guess was a bug, in the email they said it was the sales department who had temporarily stopped international ordering. But in any case, international shipping will be back by the 15th.
