I made a big deal of it when I cut my hair (it was sooo nice to lose several feet of thick hair), so everyone at work was aware of the change pretty much before it happened, and I got my hair cut to above my shoulders. Cut to a few months later, hair's still not at my shoulders, and I am convinced to wear my Hawkeye wig into work, with the clip out of it. Now my hair is very blonde (I'm very brown-haired), and at least four inches past my shoulders. What happens?

Two people at work come in and ask, "What did you do to your hair?"
"Um.... grew it out about a foot overnight?"
That's about when they realized that it was a wig. ^_^

Most recent story - though it's happened a lot to me! - was this past weekend me and my friends went in casual Hetalia cosplay to the International Street Fair, I was dressed in some gray jeans, a tan short sleeve button up and my Romano wig (FS with my own fixing of the curl). Being Hetalians on a budget as soon as we saw an Army Navy Surplus store we slipped right on in and started looking for the bits we needed or might need in the future. I myself needed a better belt since I'd been using one with a black buckle and not a silver one. I found one for the steal of $5 and as I was paying for it the lady at the cash register asked me how I got my hair to curl like that and looked very shocked when I informed her it was a wig XD

I've had the opposite happen during the last couple conventions I've attended. My hair is now mid-butt length, semi curly/wavy, and really dark brown, so I keep getting people asking me if I'm wearing a wig.

I usually don't have any of these kind of problems... but I did get mistaken for wearing a wig one time as Yuna. I even had freakin' highlights in my hair. :|

But overall, I can tell if other people are wearing wigs or not.

I was cosplaying as Rydia, wearing the cheap, synthetic, poorly styled, and awkward fitting wig. Some guy was convinced that the wig was my real hair and I had dyed it green. He even went on to see if his wife and kid thought it was real and then was so confused when they said it looked like a wig.

In most of my Facebook pictures, I'm wearing a wig, haha. So when people I've never seen irl before meet up with me, they wonder what happened to my hair XDD

Hahaha yes. I get "IS THAT YOUR HAIR?" in my Vanille wig all the time. I often play along, too.

xD I was at target with my mum getting spraypaint for a RPG prop im making, and I was wearing my pink Luka Megurine wig... About 3 people asked if it was real.. Two times i said no, and explained that it was a wig. But the third time i just said "Yeah its my real hair" and walked away

And I wore my black Xion wig to school once, and people legitly thought i cut my hair and my bangs grew 4 inches overnight...

with my current hair people think its a wig, i guess because its so thick and long and all clean looking.

My cosplay group and I were all hanging out at my one friend's house. I was dressed as Charden from Black Cat. My Charden wig is wavy, blonde, and down to my hips. Here's a good picture of it from the back so you can see the length, color and curls. My friend's brother asked if it was my real hair.

My real hair is about at my shoulder blades and a color between brown and blonde. And he's seen me without the wig.
Working on:
Raffaele Laurent Bessette-The Young Elites(New Outfit,) Wilhelm-Crimson-Shell (Revamp), Yashiro-Erased, Lars van Allen-Griefer Belt, Liv Moore-iZombie, Dia Kurosawa-Love Live Sunshine, Osamu Dazai (Mafia version)-Bungou Stray Dogs, Miki Hoshii-Idolm@ster, Yoshiko Tsushima-Love Live Sunshine, Edgar Allen Poe-Bungou Stray Dogs,

This past halloween I dressed up as Lady Gaga while handing out candy LOL. I had one parent say "Nice wig" and I said thank you. She then said something along the lines of "oh no, maybe I shouldn't have called it a wig" and I said no, it is a wig. She then complimented on how nice and natural looking it was :P

I had someone tell me that I had to straighten my wig for my Orochimaru cosplay xD;
Its my real hair guys Plus it was not that wave anyways. It have only some curves in the front by the rest of it was straight. Besides, everyone straightens their hair at some point.

But I enjoy the face that people thought that it was a wig, the must mean that I was accurate in that part of the cosplay
