Where to get really long wigs?
Post By Taintedkitten. 09/09/10, 02:06 pm

I don't mind sculpting them into the hair style I require, but it's so difficult finding REALLY long wigs, in white. Anyone have any ideas?

Ebay and Cosworx are the places that come to mind, but what do you need it for? A really long wig is really difficult to deal with and tangles a lot, so if you just want a long wig it's often better to be inaccurate and slightly shorter for your sanity's sake! :)

I tried Ebay, there was one similar in style, but the shipping was about as much as the wig hehe so being the poor student I am, would prefer something where the shipping doesn't cost that much (I've shipped big boxes from the US which weren't that much) or somewhere closer to home.

The hairstyle I'll make of it will mean it won't tangle so easily. I don't want it super duper long, just longer than the mid back or so I see around here. I don't want it as long as they have, but still longer because once the hairstyle is in place it'll make it shorter again.

Do you have a reference of the character you need the wig for? :3 If you need it for Auckgeddon, then maybe somebody can lend you the wig for a day?

Would any of these do? http://shop.cosplay.com/wigs.html?wig_color_category=9&wig_style_length=22 (the heat resistant ones tangle less easily too). The other thing you can do is if the hair is tied back at all, you can buy a shorter wig and use extensions? (I can absolutely sympathise on the shipping thing!)

As Cacti says, if you're able to post a ref pic we can help you find it more specifically. Very Happy

It's for Sailor Cosmos.

I'd really like to have my own, but if worse comes to worse I guess borrowing could be an answer :)

So yeah, I'd have to make the pigtaily thingies, so need a bit extra for that cause once they're wound around, then there might not be so much left for the pigtails.

Wouldn't it be better to get a wig with clip on ponytails then style the ponytails with the bun thingies? IDK. XD

That is probably a better idea, something I didn't think of, now I feel stupid hehe. How does it work that way?

I would definitely suggest either getting clip on ponytails or getting a pigtail wig. In silver, I think your best bet would be clip on ponytails. What about this? Or this one haha? Or this one~

Suixelo beat me to it, but the first and last one she linked both have free shipping, too. Very Happy

I wouldn't recommend it... Those are clip in hair extensions meant for clipping into your real hair and are really really thin. You would need a heck of those to even get even close to those other wigs and you wouldn't be able to use them properly with a wig on. It would look really strange.

Hrmm that's what I was afraid of. Just those are in Aussie (read shorter shipping time) and the others are in US. I might just have to fork out the extra for faster shipping >.<

What are the chances someone would have one I could borrow? LOL

Thanks for the help guys, the usagi wig has now been purchased, figured was easier to slightly modify that then start completely from scratch :)

Hopefully it gets here in time
