Thank you, I washed the wig and as soon as it is dry I will try using less spray. : )

I just recently bought my first wig from them at Anime USA this past weekend. I bought their "Goggle Star Boots Girl" wig and it's insanely nice!!! It's really soft and looks fantastic :3

Just purchased their "Purple Fox Eyebrow Tamer" and am very happy. This is my first real cosplay wig purchase. I ordered Monday 12/19 and just received today 12/22! Super fast! Now if I could just remember where my wig cap went...

What I bought: YOSH! Princely Hero Type (Shizuo and England)
How long I waited: Got it in a week.
Link to product: here
Link to what I received: here
Notes: Lovely layered wig in a lovely mixed light blonde, platinum blondish shade. I barely needed to cut it (only around the bangs), fits both Shizuo and England with minimal styling (all I did was mess it up a bit). The fibers are nice and soft and the wig is pretty darn full. I love it and it was TOTALLY worth the price of 30 bucks. I paid with money order, which is great that they accept those!!!
?/5: 5/5

Ugh, I wish I'd heard of this place before!! I've just seen their Temari wig, and my friend and I have just spent hours today cutting and styling the Chibi wig from Arda into a Temari wig!! Still, it's looking pretty good so far ^_^

Ahh I love them!! I bought their "Intergalactic Manly Fluff" from them at Connecticon, and I love it so much! The only bad thing I can say about it is the wefting on top is extremely thick, so much so that if I don't keep it on my wig head, it starts to look funny ^^; But other than that I love it to death and so far it's survived a few cons and a lot of beating XD

Bought two wigs from them. :3 Both wigs were pretty good but they don't have much volume on the crown, which isn't good for me 'cause I have a really round, pudgy face. XD I received them very fast, maybe it's 'cause I live in PA. But I got them within a week or two. Very fast shipping.

Vocal Singing Genius Dancer wig
FB album with my niece wearing the wig (bought it for her). http://www.facebook.com/media/set/?s...3&l=7d6d2b15db
The Vocal Genius Singer Dancer wig was nice. The twin tails don't tangle badly and it's a very comfortable wig. Nice color, good feel (soft). But the back of the wig doesn't cover the hairs at the back of the neck well. Minus that, it's a pretty good wig.

Cocky Commander General Snap Wig
My FB album (obviously the black wig is the subject) with the wig in various shots. http://www.facebook.com/media/set/?s...3&l=6cf569309f
I completely tricked everyone with this when I spent a day in the wig. Everyone thought it was real. But it didn't feel like real hair to the touch (a rather plastic-y feel). It was comfortable to wear, but it kept slipping back when I was wearing a hat over it (for Abe Takaya from Oofuri). I'm pretty sure the hat wasn't that heavy, but I guess maybe some bobby pins would've helped to attach the wig to my wig cap or something. Doesn't really spike up that well. Maybe it's 'cause I used hairspray on it, but the texture of the wig completely changed. Before it was very fluffy and soft, but now it's just thick and hard. I don't use it anymore. XD

Forgot to post here after I got my wig.

So, I bought the Chocolate Curls Cascade. Shipping wise it came to me in about a week. The wig itself was very nice and soft and it is easy to care for because since it is heat resistant I just throw my straightener against it and it helps remove the hardest tangles. The only bad thing I could say for it is that like most longer wigs it tends to tangle a lot after walking around while wearing it and the tangles are a bit difficult to take care of with just fingers but it is possible. I will definitely buy from them again in the future. ^_^

Bumpin' it up, y'all.

Anyway, reading this thread, it seems that their wigs can run a bit small, which makes me nervous. Does anyone know what their wigs measure?

Can anyone give me some advice? I was at AnimeNEXT this past weekend and purchased one of The Five Wits' wigs from their dealer's room booth. I later was rushing to put it on, but when I got it on, I was surprised at how dry it felt and it was a bit tangled already. I feel like I may have gotten someone's return or a sample. I don't want to throw it away, but attempting to detangle it hasn't worked very well despite using Motions Sheen Oil spray.

Is there anything they can do, considering I purchased it at-con and not from their website?

I bought the Snow Falling Meteor wig
http://thefivewits.net/2010/06/heave...alling-meteor/

for my Ice Queen Cosplay from The Five Wits
http://www.cosplay.com/costume/389747/

and I have to say it is one of the most beautiful wigs I have purchased from any site. the fibers were soft to the touch, the fit was perfect, the colour was even better then the picture on the site!
I would definitely buy from them again.

Try emailing them and explain your experience and also tell them you bought it at the con. Im sure they will help you with your problem.


I forgot to write this review.

What I bought: Pact Knight Timid Squirrel
How long I waited: Got it in 2-3 days.
Link to product: http://thefivewits.net/2012/03/pact-...imid-squirrel/
Link to what I received: http://yamibakura03.deviantart.com/gallery/#/d4vm0ji
Notes:
I was looking around for a wig to make this particular style but didn't find one. So I send them an email and suggested the wig style for a certain character in a Tales game. They told me they already had that styled in mind so I should wait a few weeks till I hear more news about it. They later send me an emailed about it and I quickly bought it. Once I received it, the wig is so soft and easy to styled that a simple used of hairspray made the bangs. I will buy more wigs in the future.
rate: 5/5

Has anyone purchased their Pinkie Pie wig?

The only sizing I can go by is that cosplaywigs is a bit too small for me.
