Jinrui Wa Suitai Shimashita, Watashi Wig?

Hey, This is my first buying a wig and I'm looking for a light pink and very long wig for Jinrui Wa Suitai Shimashita's protagonist. (Ps. Her name is never mentioned, so I'll call her 'Watashi', 'Mediator', or 'Protagonist'.) Since this is a first, I'm not sure where to look or how to alter a wig. I've looked at Megurine Luka wigs and they seem to fit the bill in terms of length. The top is the problem. If anyone knows any wigs that are just like Mediator's or very similar, or some altering tutorials and/or tips please provide links! Thanks in advance! >.<

High Five for Jinrui Wa Suitai Shimashita cosplayers! I'm making a small army of fairies as well to go with my Watashi.

Fastasy sheep as a few wigs you can order that would work. You just have to show the link and mention the color you want to the person that runs their Ebay account and they will list it for you.

^ This one is perfectly pre-styled I was socked to find it you just need the tease the bangs abit more to get the poofyness she has with hair spray.

Some other sellers I trust.

I'm going to order this one for my larger head from Arda Wigs and add either wefts or another short wig to fill out the crown area. The are going to have a sale on the 21st so I'm waiting to place my order then for 15% off.

Also something to be aware of that if you can't find the right shade of fabrics to go with her costume (pastels are hard to find) you will need to go slightly darker with the wig. This is because the wig color in a pale pink look washed out next to bolder shades of fabric.

I was actually going to say the exact same wig (the first one) that Ani_BEE suggested. I have this wig and it's honestly perfect for the protagonist. It's nice and thick too.

Thank you guys so much! It really helped! it's a bit on the pricy side, but I think I'll manage. I also need help making the costume! Anybody got a short tutorial or blueprint? I'm a newbie at sewing and i don't want to waste fabric experimenting. I'm planning on baking cookies or something with fairy dolls included. I don't really want to buy the costume cuz I'll never know if it'll fit me

Go here with your question as this is a wig only forum.
http://www.cosplay.com/showthread.ph...33#post4513633


The most you will pay for that Fantasy Sheep wig is $40US with shipping, that's cheap considering you don't have to do anything extra to it. Check out their ebay store to confirm that.

Yeah, I figured as much... ^^" Thanks I'll go ask again over there.

It was only shortly after that I figured out it's actual price. It took me awhile to change the currency to canadian. I am soo buying that wig! Is it a stock though? Because if there's a time limit I can't get it because I have to work to earn my money >.< Chinese is not a native language of mine, lol.

Do you think the Coscom ivy long in dark pink would work well?

I feel holly is too curly and I'm not sure if I could tame it and make it wavy instead?

Their Dark Pink would be the closest.

I say got with the Ivy or Rose for style as the Holly waves are to tight.

cosplay.com shopping is a horrible place to buy any wig from because they always have out of stock issues and zero customer service. You can never talk to a real person there about anything before you buy something and if anything at all goes wrong with your order the only recourse is to file a paypal claim immediately to get your money back. It's been this way for over two years now and I still keep seeing complaints on the review forums here. I'm never buying from them after my own bad experiences.

I buy from reliable american sellers like epiccosplay.com (the best for tangle free long wigs I have ever found)
http://www.epiccosplay.com/wigs-by-l...res_hash=V4761
or from arda wigs
http://arda-wigs.com/products/luthien
or the five wits wigs.
http://thefivewits.net/2012/07/goddess-of-feels/

The taobao stores mentioned in this thread are also excellent and will save you money if you go in on a group order with other people since shipping costs and being able to wait a month or more for your wig are the main problems there, as is a slight language barrier if something goes wrong with your order. They also tend to shut down for a few weeks over the chinese new years holiday which will be starting very soon. you could also try to find them on american e-bay tho the stock there is very limited and like mentioned you get better results just e-mailing them directly.

another option is moemall.com, they stock wigs from dear wild and are in australia so if you can't buy from the original seller on taobao try there. it's good quality for their prestyled stuff, just on the thin side if you're doing heavy styling, which you're not. ^^

thanks for all your links! I've bought two wigs and two packs of wefts with no issues.. I must be lucky. I really like their blends (I bought a midnight blue) and it took well to hairspray and a steamer. I'll search else where I didn't know about their 'history'
