Question Wigs in Lolita -- Best places to find HQ wigs?

Ok, so I know that places like Cyperous and Prisilla both have really high quality Japanese wigs perfect for Lolita and HimeGyaru, but they both do not take international orders and are extremely expensive to get a hold on through shopping services.

Places like ebay too, are usually a hit or miss with me. I know some places like Professional Only has some really nice daily lolita or deco lolita wear, but I want to find something a little bit more extravagant and...large xD

Are there any other places you've been to//seen online (maybe like a historical costuming store or something? or beauty store) that has these kinds of wigs?

Examples of what I'm talking about:

Amphigory.
Case in point. It's basically the Cyperous wig posted... just not styled.
Curl, cut, hairspray/pomade.

my only concern would be the wefting in the back. Some wigs (since most wigs like this don't have the silicone skin pieces) are not meant for lifting--- so when you pick up a wig that's not made to do that, it'll show the wefting material. (actually is says it right there that it doesn't have a skin top) :/

It's definately a good idea, but I don't think this wig would work.

It's already lifted - it's a beehive. The skin top shouldn't matter too much with the bangs.

Cosplaysupplies.com also carries a lot of the same wigs as Amphigory, for those who have trouble with Amphigory's shipping policies.

I kind of agree with the rest. Try egl community for some sales on things. I see them pop up every once in awhile.

eh, I've seen a few dealers popping up on EGl occassionally, but nothing where you can really get a hime bouffant.

@SasamiChan-- I saw that. n_n;;; what i was saying that when you're curling the hair, (I'm not even sure if that wig is heat resistant or not) and giving more root to that 'beehive' (it seems to be a really small one) that with so many curls and while lifting the hair in the back, it'll show pieces underneath. D:

Do you get what i'm saying? >.<;;

A brand I hear thrown around often is Prisila, which can be purchased through Rakuen (the link contains some great information and how to buy etc.). Here is the result of searching 'wigs" on the main community as well, which should be helpful to look through.

Eek don't ruin your nice expensive plastic wigs by using a curling iron on them! Most wigs that aren't made of human hair aren't "heat resistant", just style them with hot water or a low set blow dryer.

Amphigory also sells premade wefts if the back of the wig is threadbare.. I dunno, I think that would be your best bet.

I had to pay over 200$ for my wig for giselle, those that you found are fantastic...

I thought about getting the wefts and hand sewing but I wasn't sure if I wanted to put myself on that route. I do hear its pretty easy, but I would have sewn about a million in and ended with the same look if I had puchased it through a local store.

I am doing a wig commission and I am getting the supplies through
http://www.ikickshins.net/
They have alot of information on their site about making wigs from scratch and what

Almost any synthetic wig can sustain damage from heated styling tools (curling or flat irons, ceramic or otherwise). To avoid damge to even the cheapest fiber, use rollers and a blow dryer or hot water.

You don't need heat for that. Lift, spray, dry, style.

Quote:
that with so many curls and while lifting the hair in the back, it'll show pieces underneath. D:
If styled properly the mesh won't show through. If you want the wig to be super thick, add wefts before curling.


More styling advice can be found here.

lolita wigs

I bought 3 wigs from fan plus friend an online store and all three were great. They can be a bit pricey but they are good quality and the shipping isn't too outrageous. They also have great gothic Lolita accessories and costumes for sale, i get the majority of my lolita stuff through them.
