Lots of cosplays - ONE WIG

How many cosplays have you done wearing the same wig?

One. I suck at taking care of them, but I plan to start now. Looking into taking better care.
Animeboston Congoer.

Cosplay 1: Sailor Venus (Commissioner failed to make 4 month deadline)
Update: August 10th.... still nothing.

Reality: Recycled or no cosplay at all. Got to love commissioning! Thanks everyone!! Serious thanks to Dulcinea, who actually made the deadline for the accessories far in advance and of outstanding quality. Sucks they won't be used.

Two: I use my black wig for Butler Grell Sutcliff and Orochimaru from Naruto. I am pretty sure I can find more characters for it.

Two at most. I always want to re-use the wigs but all the characters I love have different colours / styles!

My Catherine wig also works for Mami, Lady Hawkeye, and Lucy (Dracula). My Alice Liddell wig works also works for Lucifer (Umineko) and Lady Punisher. My Wesker wig doubles as my Siesta 00 wig. Lastly, my Izaya wig is also used for my Catwoman wig :3

I have a short black wig that I use for Xion, but I'm gonna see if I can style it into an L wig. I'm not good at styling (natural hair AND wigs...) so we'll see how this turns out. I'm sure I can use it for others as well.

My short black Karkat wig I also use for Kankri and Gareki, I'm using my white Rose wig for Callie Ohpeee after having restyled it and my Aradia wig for Damara.
I'm planning on using my Porrim wig for Aoi Kunieda in the future along with some other multiple use wigs I'll be getting.
And I always think of maybe reusing a wig for a Pokémon gijinka.^^

I think 2-3 is the max for any given wig for me.

- Short blonde wig for Prince Crescendo and Prince Emerald
- Blonde page boy wig for Howl and Mithos
- Cut my Jade Curtiss wig shorter for Richard
- Strawberry blonde wig for 3 different outfits I made for Drocell
- ...and Plan to cut my Flo wig for Paprika

Whatever, getting at least 2 costumes out of a few wigs is a pretty good return investment as I rewear my costumes a lot so to have another character the wigs work for is just a bonus.

Zero. All of my wigs are heavily styled to be exact to the character, they can never be doubled-up. All 20 of them.

I use my Reim Lunettes wig also for Roxy Lalonde, Rose Lalonde, and England. Though I may end up getting a new one for Roxy because it needs to be trimmed more for the other 3.

With Vocaloid wigs, you can get countless costumes out of one wig!!! But when it comes to different characters, my Rin wig doubles for Princess Agitha, my Luka wig will double for Miyuki (Lucky Star), and my Haruhi wig will tripple for Kiki (Kiki's Delivery Service) and American McGee's Alice.
Mami Tomoe (Puella Magi Madoka Magica) - 50% complete
Queen Elsa (Frozen) - 50%
Elphaba [Emerald City inspired dress] (Wicked) - 100%

I've used my Once-ler wig for Kankri and Jane from Homestuck
I've used my Sealand wig for Dave from Homestuck
I plan to use my Madoka wig for Yutaka from Lucky Star

I need to get better at re-using wigs, to be honest... I own about 5 short black wigs in slightly varying styles and sometimes I wonder if I could have avoided buying one or two by re-using them.
Working On:

Ryuko Matoi - 25%

Future Cosplays (not working on yet):
Catherine, Wednesday Addams, Roxy Lalonde, fem!Spock, Monobear, Touko Fukawa, Toro Gijinka, Neptune, Rika Furude, Mew Ichigo, Chibimoon, Ramona Flowers, Coco Bandicoot, Stardust Witch Meruru, Juliet Starling, Homura Akemi
