Cosplay Wig Hacks
I’ve always found wigs to be the hardest piece of a cosplay to put together, especially when you’re dealing with funky hairlines or multiple colors of hair. I cosplayed Tohru from Miss Kobayashi’s Dragon Maid at the last con I attended (Kumoricon), and I really wish I had put more thought into the wig I chose. I bought her wig from Amazon for around $30; it was decent considering the price, but I wasn’t 100% satisfied.
This wig is from Addcolo, they manufacture their wigs in-house and offer a ton of personalized options. For example on this blonde wig, you can specify the hair length, choose a left, right, or middle location for the U-Part, and even choose the hair strand density which is awesome for those really floofy characters like Sakura (Naruto) below. You can also choose your cap size which I love, finding the right size cap is an on-going battle for me since every brand has their own strange sizing.
You can also specify the depth of the part, so for instance, if you were going for Nana you would want a very short opening for her style.
If you’ve never worn a U-Part (like me), here’s a handy video showing how they work, I found it pretty useful.
I’d love to hear if anyone has worn or heard of this style before, drop me a comment!
