Really? this needs to be a topic?
You open it of course..If it isn't what you ordered, ask for a refund..Simple as that....

It's alright, you don't have to be anxious. I used to feel exactly the same way when I would get wigs in and wouldn't try them on for days after I got them, but I realized there's nothing to be nervous about because everything can be fixed. If it's not what you ordered, ask for a refund. If it's too small, some wigs can be made larger. If you don't like how it looks, play around with your make up -- making your eyebrows the same color and things like that can make a wig look a lot less goofy. :]

If it's crappy you can try to return it or file a claim with paypal or your bank. If that's not available for one reason or another file a negative review with their store, if they're on ebay or another website where that's possible. Also file a report with the Better Business Bureau if the issue suits that avenue.

You can try to resell it to others if you think someone would be more skilled then yourself at fixing the problems, just don't expect to make back what you paid for it.

In the future be sure to check reviews from where your buying (and not just checking ebay comments, google search the store name for reviews) or ask in the community.

Also for the future; stuff like this doesn't need it's own thread and this topic is probably going to get locked.

You'll only make yourself more nervous by not bothering to open it.
What kind of wig is it? Is a base wig (un-styled) or is it a pre-styled wig for a specific character?

Take it out of the box and give it a look over. Don't be too surprised if it doesn't look exactly like the picture. You'll probably have to do a little bit of styling to get it the way you like it, but you need to take it out of the bag and look at it.

There's only so much we can help you with if you don't take it out and try it on or at the very least look at it.

Before you have a panic attack, post pictures of the wig so we can see what you need to do to style it how you need it.
