Wigs are fun and temporary and if cared for correctly, ALWAYS look nice. And you can change your look all the time :D This can't always be said of my real hair XD

It all depends. I think it is very attractive when the Japanese use their own hair. I would like to as well, but wigs are just so much fun!

I'd have to go with wigs on this one. There is so much more that I can do with a wig that I can't do with my normal hair. Also I have waaaaay too many wigs to say that I don't like them. I think I have at least 20.
Wigs. It's a lot easier to style hair when it's off your head, and you can make quick changes if you have multiple costumes. Plus it's easier to hide different types of hardware (cat ears, bon-bons, horns, whatever) in wigs.

As someone who's hair was never shown at conventions for years, I must of course support all wig-lovers. I own over 40 now I am afraid... O_o

I would have to say wigs.
Not only can you style them easier and get them in wackier colors, I generally feel that they give more 'oomf' to a costume.. even if it is just a short brown wig.
Styled properly it can make the difference in your costume.

I hate wigs. I mean, I use them if I have to, but you can bet if I can get away with it, I will use my own hair. Luckily my hair can pass for either brown or dark blonde, so it's pretty versatile in that respect.
The reason I hate wigs is because my hair is so long and thick. I know it's possible for me to wear whatever wig I want (I proved that with Fuujin), but it's just such a pain getting my own hair perfect under that wig cap! >.<
I think natural hair always looks best with a costume, if your hair matches. However, I've rarely seen dyed/sprayed natural hair look right. Most of the time it just looks tacky >.<.

Actually I choose my own hair with maybe a same color pony tail fall, or just extensions that I can put in myself. I love wigs... but I always seem to ruin them... :\

i really like wigs! ^^ but i prefer to just use my real hair for a costume ^_-

I really try to use my hair, but in most of time it's been reaaaaaaally difficult. I cosplayed Hinoto and you know, its really weird to have real loooong and white hair at 18 years O_o
And now... I'm gonna be blond for the first timeˇˇˇ Wig of course.
So, are costume that really needs a wig (specially that no-natural-colors), but another, just the hairdo fit.

I prefer wigs for sure. If you work on a wig well enough, it will look great! The only time my costume looked good with natural hair, was my Duo Maxwell costume, when i had a long thich braid. But I have cut it off now, and it is still hard to get all my hair under my wig. But you try very hard, and it still looks good! Just have to work and practise!
