NP and BTW they just announced they have a new overnight shipping available to the U.S., they said it's pricier,but probably worth it if you've ever had a last minute wig emergency.

Yeah, I have bright red hair (I dyed it :P), and using a wig cap- you can't see a thing as long as it's on properly and covering your hairline, etc. ^^

Thank you GypsyAngel and everyone else for making this thread, I am now totally comfortable with buying with them and probably will do for all my next cosplays.
I'm thinking of doing a Amane Ohtori cosplay from Strawberry Panic and the wig I found is like the exact colour and style! YAY!

I'm hoping to purchase another two wigs from them... Def. Fire Spinning Cross Tattoo (I think that's what it's called.) And the other... I'm not sure of. xD One of their short brown ones though~

Has anyone bought the 'Cocky Commander General Snap'? I'm thinking of purchasing it for a cosplay but I'm not so sure. I'm pretty sure the quality of their wigs are very good but how is this one?

I actually purchased a t-shirt from them, but I figure it's okay to post here.

They advertise their organic "geek t's" as being pre-shrunk cotton. So I was super excited that A: they had an XS, and B: it fit PERFECTLY!

But then, I brought it home and it shrunk in the dryer ; 3;
I commented on their site just as an FYI so they would be aware, not expecting anything from it, and they asked me to email them my address. They actually sent me a brand new t-shirt in size Small so it will fit! I'm so super pleased and astounded by that level of customer service and kindness <3

Just a heads up. The Five Wits posted on Face Book today that they are going to be moving. No wigs will be shipped from Aug 1st - Aug. 15th. They won't even have the "add to cart" buttons active on their site during this time. They did however, say that they would still be available to answer questions and emails.

I'm pretty much a newb as a cosplayer, and bought a wig from them at a con on a whim for a future cosplay, but I've got to say I got really lucky.

I bought the Ultra Pepperoni Shoujo-Blast for N Harmonia (they weren't selling Diabolical Undergarments Akuma Princess yet, which probably would have worked better) and was VERY pleased. With some curlers and hairspray, I was able to add the hairflips on the side and add some loose curls in the back easily. It runs a bit small though, especially underneath my hat, but luckily my head is small. I'm pretty sure you could get a similar style for cheaper, but since I bought it in person with no shipping costs, it was a good buy.

Though I was wondering if anyone bought or know of how Stupid Smexy Tomb Thief looks? I'm considering it for Yami Bakura, since it looks nicely pre-styled, but alas there's no front view of it on the website, so I'm a bit hesitant. (Plus it's always nice to get an outside opinion.)

i love the five wits wigs they are the best! i bought a teto wig from them at otakon and a white short wig(that i'm going to use for kawou) the only promblem i had with the wig was that on the teto wig if you look real close you could use that the wig was once blonde streaks but you could see the blonde streaks if you were looking at the wig real close. but other then that they are the best! even my mother bought a pink wig from them and it look so great! the cost of the wig was like 30 dollars and hey they are wigs that cost more and don't even tell you how you can use it again for aother cosplay! the five wits are great for any bught and if you look at the wig bags they have cute names like singing toast time.

I bought "Caution! 1000 Sword Samurai" for my Witch costume, and it's PERFECT. If I ever need another wig, I'm definetely buying from these guys.

Wow! They really sound legit! Has anyone here bought the Stocking wig from them? I'm considering it, but I just want the color to be as accurate as possible. Because I'm obsessive like that.

Has anyone ever used Motions Oil Sheen to detangle their Five Witts wig? I have their Yuuko/Mio wig and used Motions to detangle it a week ago and the spray still hasn't dried. I've never had this problem before on any other wig.

I haven't ever had this problem and use it often on all my longer wigs. But I do use it sparingly,just a light spritz. Perhaps you used too much? I'd wash the wig to rinse it all out. Also I use the aerosol, not the smaller "pump" version.
