If this thread is open for questions though, I have a few.

1) I can't tell from the color names, but is there going to be anything like the old Cosworx 25 color? I miss it so much.
2) what are the skin tops like on the other styles?
3) Am I actually correct in guessing from the inside-out photo that the skin top on the layered styles does go all the way to the front so you can have bangs split at the center like with real hair without wefts showing everywhere?
#2 and #3 - Some styles do have button tops, but any for stylability questions I'll defer to Jia when she comes in Monday morning, since she actually styles wigs for cosplay and I of course don't.

#1 - The Butterscotch Blonde is very close to the old 25 color.

The colors look nice and the super-short wig is an awesome addition. Just a couple of questions!

1) What fiber are they made of?
2) Do you have any idea what the price range may be?

The large skintops are good to see. My only concern is that the long wigs seem a bit thin to me :/

Thanks, we're really happy with how the super-short turned out, it's actually more expensive to make than some of the medium length wigs but the price will still be in the short-wig range.

Fibers are a base of Hiperlon, with added Chilon and Henlon. Mixing different fibers allows our wigs to have color consistency over multiple style types.

Pricing is being finalized this week, but the short wigs will be $35 at the most. The most expensive styles should still be under $50.

I have to agree. These new wigs look great and the price range sounds great too. I can't wait to try the super short one since I've been planning to cosplay Syaoran from Tsubasa with my friend as Sakura and I was never able to find a really short wig that would look good for him. Just hope I can get all my hair under it. I have super thick hair that goes past my waist.

One more question because it's always been a deal breaker for me is what the at rest cap size on these, aka the circumference size before you expanded.

These are color swatches to show what is coming. Since we're currently working with just the final color ring and not the actual full wigs until next week, we simply scanned them in and will be creating a more accurate swatch list when some wigs arrive.

Also, a few will look different at this level of detail. For the most accurate representations, please wait for our full-wig photos in a few days. This level of detail shows the multiple fibers that are used for each mix, so the colors may look slightly different compared to how they look when applied across an entire wig.
