Anyone know where I can find a looong yellow wig? I'm thinking maybe 30" or longer ^_^ I know Amphigory has a great one but I want to lay out my options. Thanks for the help in advance!

You want like, yellow.. and not blonde? ^^ Try witchwigs yet?

Yup, yellow! ^_^ hehe... thinking of that color makes me laugh because it's so perky... but anyways!

Yup, I tried witchwigs.com but the longest one was 30". If I don't find anything really long then I think I might end up going with that since those ones have the cool scalp-like top so they look real.

If this helps much, I need it for Myu-style Usagi and Maetel from GE999.

Oooh... Amphigory's Enchantment style would be perfect for Maetel. *-* I used one for my Kuja wig before I cut bangs into it and all that. ^^

You know what, you're so right! And then I can cut bangs to use it for Usagi as well ^__^ I think I made up my mind now, thanks for all of your help.

At witchwigs.com, check out their long Cher wig. It's the one in my Chelsea costume. It's worth every dime of the $60 I paid for it, and I think you can get it in quite a few colours. It doesn't have bangs, but they weren't too hard to cut and style, so long as you have some steam rollers, or a good hairdryer! The one in the pic for Chelsea is a little tangled, but that was because I was running around all day.

You'll love it, I promise!

Here's a link to my Chelsea costume, so you can check out the wig... (http://images.cosplay.com/showphoto.php?photo=34968&papass=&sort=2&thecat=500)

=) Have fun!

Go with Amphigory. The fiber quality is better, which means a shinier wig with less tangles. ^_^

If you order from Amphigory, just make sure you order way before you need the wig! ^_^; They take a good while.. but it's worth it.

Yeah, good point. Give them a two week minimum to get the wig in stock. They special order them for each customer instead of just keeping a bunch in stock. That helps them keep prices down though. ^_^

Sakura-san,

Please if possible, post if the wig worked for Usagi's hair style. I've been trying to find one with no luck and I can not afford the price tag off 100 or up to get one made. I've seen some really beautiful ones like Katie Bair's but it's not in my budget. =(

I have never styled a wig but I might just go ahead and order it and see if I can get the odango's without destoring the wig. How can you beat 40 bucks for that one?

^.^

Sorry I can't do it for cheaper. I'm as poor as the next cosplayer, and I know that not everyone can shell out the cash to get a commission, but I'm keeping my prices as low as I can without starving over it. ;_;

If you'd like to style an Usagi on your own, I suggest starting with a shorter wig, and adding the ponytails. Trying to deal with all that long hair is hard enough without having to part and twist it too. ~_^

I second that. Working with a wig past middle-of-the-back length is a pain to simply brush out, let alone style. X_X I'd definitely agree with using a shorter wig and adding stuff to it...

Though I have no idea how to do that... ^_^;;

Get a shoulder-length wig... pull all the hair up like in an updo (be sure and part it for the pigtails)... Get some hair extensions in the right colors to make the buns and tails. For the buns, I would get two stryofoam spheres to form the buns around... that way they hold their shape and it requires less of your precious hair to make them. Attach to wig via tacky glue and hairpins.

Ta-da.
