Also know that unless you pay extra for faster shipping, it could take over a month to get your wig from overseas. If you need it soon, look at US sellers where you already know the quality is good because their regular shipping is usually two weeks or less and the express shipping options can be cheaper too. Sellers like epiccosplay, arda wigs, and the five wits have a habit of turning up at cons and if its one you'll be at you can arrange to pick it up in person and have zero shipping costs.
Thank you so much! I just found a lovely wig from Epiccosplay that I think I'm going to use instead. Thank you so much for the help!
