Wig for big head

I just ordered two wigs. They are fabulous looking but I have very thick long hair on top of a large head. Just a reference, I have to wear size 7 3/4 or 8 sized hats!! So now I have two wigs I can't wear unless I shave my head, then they might fit. I really don't want to do that.

Anyone know where I can get a sized wig? I saw some on Amazon but I'm looking for cosplay colors (need gray and light brown short guy cut and in the further future, long blonde).

My husband has a 24" head so I look to Arda to find him wigs. Maybe they would work for you?

Outside of altering smaller wigs to make them bigger, the only ones that will fit you are the USA based sellers. Arda, epiccosplay, thefivewits, and some of the USA eBay sellers (the ones BASED In the USA, not the places that just ship here).

I have a pretty large head (22 1/2"), and my friend has an even larger (maybe 23 1/2"). Arda makes wigs that are more suited to big heads.

That said, if you ever want to style wigs for a big head, I'd recommend making your own wig head by taking a plaster bandage or paper mache relief of your head with your hair up in the way it would be while you are wearing it. When you style a wig, even if it's a bigger size on a regular foam wig head, the spikes or other detailing will sit weird when you're wearing it.
