This is the first year I'll be going to Acen and I'm looking to buy 2 wigs, one for a lolita outfit and another for a cosplay. I'm probably going to be buying the white wig I need from Fantasy-Sheep Coswig Land on eBay. However, I'm debating where to buy the other wig (which will either be black or pink :P).
To be honest, I don't wear lolita that often, just to conventions. And I go to 1-2 conventions per year at the moment. So I don't have the urge to spend $60 on a wig that might not get used even once per year, depending on what outfit(s) I choose to wear. Fantasy-Sheep's wigs are decently priced (I'm looking at the shorter bob styles as I don't look good in long hair). However, many of the other popular places to buy wigs, like Cosplay Wigs USA, either don't have many short style wigs, or are a little pricy for what I'm looking for. Now, obviously I don't want a $5-10 wig, because many times you get what you pay for, but something in the $30-40 price-range would be nice. I'm looking for some tips/advice on where to get some decent wigs for a little less money. I have been searching through the memories quite a bit, but thought it wouldn't hurt to ask either. Sometimes people find decent wigs in the most surprising places, even Halloween stores. You never know!
I'm particularly curious about the wigs sold by eBay user comic-wig,
who has 100% feedback (from 473 users). Anyone purchased from him/her?
I'm also curious if anyone has bought wig caps from Amphigory. I'm very worried about my wig cap hurting my head (as my darn headbands often do). I've read a lot about cutting a pair of tights/nylons and using them as caps, but I also heard Amphigory's mesh cap is pretty pain free, and am wondering if anyone here has used it.
