These are some of the wig places I’ve bought from multiple times. I can’t guarantee the same experiences for you, of course. These are by no means all the places you can find good wigs or good deals, but if you are in a pinch and want to know a few sellers you can trust, that’s what this list is for. I’m being honest about my experiences with each here, sharing the good and the bad.
Before I get to my wig seller reviews, let me preface this with a little bit about me as a wig buyer. I prefer to style my own wigs and the majority of what I buy is plain styles that I can cut and style as needed. If you are looking for ready to go, fully styled wigs, I can’t speak to that. These reviews don’t cover where to buy a Saber wig, for example. I styled my own from a long wig, loose hair, and some home made wefts. Usually what you can do with a little time and a few youtube tutorials will be as good, if not better than a wig seller that is worried about volume and cost effectiveness but not accuracy. With that in mind, here are my reviews!
I’ve bought from them several times and overall would give them a positive review.
Positives- Somewhat thick wigs that are relatively easy to style. The textured wig fiber is touted for working well for spiking short styles. They have many cuts and colors to choose from, and the fibers are heat resistant. Ships from the USA. Good prices. Products look exactly as listed.
Negatives- Very inconsistent stock. Order from them months in advance and be prepared for some of your order to not be in stock for quite a while. Some of the wigs lack skin tops and tend to have center parts far back on the wig, which can be an issue for creating certain realistic hairstyles. The fiber tends to tangle easily. Not all wigs styles are as thick as others.
I have been buying wigs from this seller for years. Overall my experience has been quite positive, and they are one of my favorites to check when I have a new cosplay planned.
Positives- They have a lot of variety and many character wigs (wigs cut to be easy to style to fit specific characters.) The stock is always changing to meet current demands. Wigs have skin tops which adds a believable touch to a wig. Many of the wigs are heat resistant. You can find colors at this seller you can’t find anywhere else for such low prices. Cheap, but good quality. Seller includes free wig nets when you buy from them. What you see is what you get, too. They take their own product shots of all their wigs (and watermark the love out of them now since other sellers on ebay steal from them.)
Negatives- Ships from China. This isn’t a problem for me, but might be for someone else. In the past, I’ve had orders canceled because they didn’t have stock, so contact them first if you are really interested in a wig. Years ago I had a few wigs that were less than stellar arrive from this seller, but in recent years, I’ve been mostly happy with all my purchases.
This store is great for plain, long wigs. I’ve had all positive experiences buying from them.
Positives- Awesome for heat resistant, long wigs that are very thick and don’t tangle like other wigs. The fiber is very silky and I always check this seller first when I want a long wig that won’t tangle up on me after wearing around a con. The prices are low and the quality is great. Wigs have skin tops and are honestly as thick as 2 wigs combined from some other sellers. They have large stocks of most wigs so you can order without asking. Seller included free wig nets with my orders.
Negatives- Also ships from China, but this is debatably not a downside if you don’t need it overnight. The stock styles and colors are somewhat limited compared to other sellers.
I’ve only ordered a few wigs from this store and my experience was hit and miss.
Positives- Fairly cheap and wide variety of styles of wig. They offer a lot of character wigs as well. Seller included free wig nets and a brush. I ordered from them in a rush when another seller’s product ended up being out of stock.
Negatives- The wig I ordered for my Tsumugi was as pictured, but my wig I bought for Fumino was not. It was sold as a wig for Taiga from Toradora, which is quite similar in look to Fumino’s hair. Unfortunately the wig came very badly styled and needed a lot of work to save it. The layer of hair under the bangs was crimped and poorly cut. There was a spot in the center of the bangs that was all nap that had to be hidden. I had to create a comb over with other hair from the wig to hide the damaged wig fiber. I would advise against getting a styled wig from this seller because of the condition of this wig. However, plain styles seem to be safe. Ships from China as well, and fast shipping is not as cheap as with other sellers. They use the same model for many product shots, but sometimes use other cosplayer photos which I question the source of. I would use some discretion when buying some wigs from them because of this. Look for ones that are on a wig head and don’t look styled if you want to be certain about what you are getting.
I’ve bought a number of wigs from this seller and have had only positive experiences with them, both online and at conventions where they’ve been very friendly and helpful.
Positives- Affordable prices, thick wigs, and ships from the US. Their wigs are similar to the ones I’ve ordered from CosplayDNA, but they are located fairly close to me and I get my orders nearly overnight. They ship fast and the wigs are heat resistant. Wigs come with skin tops and they sell very long wigs at reasonable prices. These wigs don’t tangle easily, so it’s great for long styles.
Negatives- Not much negative to say about this seller so far!
A long time cosplayer go-to, this store has the best selection of ‘realistic’ hair colors and styles. If you need a believably real color or cut, this place is a good place to check.
Positives- There are so many styles to choose from and the seller has good notes on wigs that are suitable for styling and up-do’s. They are also honest about wig thickness and quality. It’s a good place to buy wefts and loose hair for styling wigs as well. They stock a lot of supplies and styling tools that can be hard to find from cosplay wig sellers. Ships from the USA.
Negatives- Can be a bit more expensive than other wig sellers. It’s very limited when it comes to unnatural hair colors, so this place is best for characters with shades hair naturally comes in. Sometimes there is a wait for products, but the seller discloses wait times well. Order well in advance.
Well, that’s it! I hope this helps direct a few of you to a place where you can find a good wig for your next cosplay!
