There's a wig and beauty supplies shop in South Common Mall in Mississauga that has a semi-good collection of general wigs. They carry a bunch of uncommon colours and styles which cater towards the cosplay scene. I recommend them only because they seemed much cheaper than downtown Toronto alternatives like Malabar. I believe they're called "Trends".

I found a good place in a shitty mall in Brampton actually. The prices are reasonable and the quiality is good. I bought my sailor mars wig there for 34.99.

The address is 50 Kennedy Road South, Brampton. i think the mall is called Kennedy Square Mall. It is run down mall but the wig shop is very large.

Queen of Hearts Costumes if your in Waterloo have a huge range of Lacey wigs.

R. Hiscott also sell Lacey wig in Toronto.


http://www.cactusmafia.com/ sell at conventions, they should be at Con-G, Anime North, and FanExpo again this year.

There not to many wig selling in Toronto of any quality. You can visit Cosplay Supplies warehouse as well.


I personal just been buy from Arda and Epic Cosplay for wigs because there is no guessing on quality and fit for me.

This place is over priced sadly.

Check out some hair salons, some of them also carry wigs. In Toronto there is also Malabars as well as a few party stores that have wigs on Yonge between College and Bloor.

Ohmygosh thank yous for this thread!
I was actually curious to know about any wig shops around here because if im able to get a wig, im actually not sure if im able to get in time even if I found online for a decent price. At the very least if I found one im looking for $25 atleast itll be cheaper because I only pay taxes and not shipping.

If you're looking for natural colours, hair salons and beauty supply stores that cater to African-Canadian ladies usually have a great selection of both wigs and hair extensions.
