- The color and style of your hair is not so easy to change to match the character you want to cosplay. But with some cosplay wigs, you can change your hair style and color with a small sum of money.
- Wigs will stay styled. You only need to style the wig once and it will always be in that For your own hair, you need to re-style, re-dye, or get a haircut every time you wear the costume. It is too time-consuming and annoying to make effort in styling the hair.
- Wigs look better. Wigs make a cosplay costume perfect if it is well made according to the cosplay character. No frizz, no oil, no fuss. What’s more, synthetic wigs are usually much thicker than real hair, which helps bring the unrealistic hair expectations from anime characters to real life.
You need to learn some cosplay wig terminology before purchasing a wig, because it can make your decision wiser and help you purchase what you want. A wig is made of wefts of fiber sewn together into a mesh cap. A weft is basically a long strand of wig fiber sewn into a strip.

A skin top is used on some wigs to create a more natural-looking look for the fibers. A wig may have a skin top at the crown of the head or off to one side or the other. This affects the direction the fibers lay in, so if you have a character with a side part, try to get a wig with a skin top on the correct side.
The only place I will ever buy a wig from is Cosplay, Anime, Costume & Fashion Wigs Supplier I have never had a bad wig come from them and they are always working hard to make sure you have a great experience. During the checkout process they even ask you what the wig is for and look forward to seeing it. I've had representatives from Lizwig comment on photos I've posted where I'm wearing their product a d they are super encouraging and positive. I just cant recommend them enough!!!
