Buying wigs at AN?

It's kinda early to be asking this, but anyways I'm thinking about buying a wig at AN this year as I have no credit card and my parents don't really like buying me stuff online...
How are the prices, quality, etc of the wigs at AN? If they're not that great I'll probably just buy one of those Giftcard Mastercards....

I haven't bought any yet but plan to if they have the style I'm looking for; I've heard good things. Cactusmafia is I think the Canadian seller of Fivewits wigs, which are excellent quality, and in the last few years they've been selling at most cosn, including AN. The price is pretty reasonable for at a con, too.

The price of wigs at AN is generally what you see online except you don't need to worry about shipping. As long as you get to the Dealer's Room on Friday, you're almost guaranteed to find the wig you're looking for. I couldn't order a Riku wig last year since I ran out of time and they had the perfect wig there for me If you have no other options, do it that way but it's better to order online just in case the wig you get isn't what you want or things change. Nothing wrong with prepaid visas either. I use those all the time for buying cosplay supplies since I don't have a credit card either ^^

I HIGHLY recommend Cactus Mafia wigs! they range from $30-$60 depending on length and if there is clip ins or not (My Mami wig would have normally been a $30 wig but because of the pre-styled drill curls, it was $50, MORE then worth it though!) You will want to look through their catalouge though because they don't carry everything under the sun in every color and some of the wigs are less good then others... but i can recommend quite a few! I have bought 5 wigs from them over the years and have been very happy with all of them!

These are the only sellers in the dealers rooms so far.

Cactus Mafia
(yes they are the Canadian seller of the Fivewits wigs and they only do Cons for selling)
Cosplay Supplies
Queen of Hearts Costumes

Arda Wig has been trying to get in but the dealers room has not had a change of dealer in a long time. They just don't get any feed back about space either when they put in a request the past 2 years. (Their requests go unanswered either way.)

If you're planning on buying from Cactus Mafia, their more popular wigs sell out fast at AN, but you can try messaging them ahead of time if they can hold a certain wig for you.

I'm not 100% sure if they will for AN since it is a big con, but the people behind the booth are pretty nice and I've done it before (through facebook) for smaller cons. c:
