We’ll be on the road to and from conventions (Anime Boston, Anime Central and AnimeNEXT) from May 15 to June 12, so replies and shipments may be delayed! The shirts, BJD eyes, and BJD wigs will be unavailable for ordering at this time.
Come to our booth at AnimeNEXT, we’ll be having a convention-long anniversary party at the booth; with games, prizes and sales, as well as a shot at one-of-a-kind wigs not available on the website!
Our international shipping prices have been updated- check the FAQ for details.

Do you know someone who is dealing with cancer and needs a good wig or two? E-mail us with their story, and we’ll see if we can match them with the gift of a wig.
Also, for the month of October we’ll be donating 20% of sales from all pink wigs to fight Breast Cancer. Update: Congratulations everybody! Thanks to your pink wig purchases, we were able to donate $402 to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation!
The US mail service is on holiday today, so any packages from today and this weekend will ship out tomorrow. Thanks!
Today for Cyber Monday we’re offering FREE SHIPPING on all our things! Yay!
You can choose the option when you check-out in Paypal.
This is Birdy interrupting your webcomic times to bring you an important plea! Ruth wrote a very awesome web novel and we need donations to get it printed and Kickstarter is awesome and there are fabulous prizes if you contribute! Drawings and books and cloaks and things!
Here is The Blackfeather Chronicles trailer!
Also we’re going to be at NYCC/NYAF this weekend (with the book)
Note: To those checking the website updates tag, we now announce most updates through our Facebook, Twitter (also shown in the left sidebar here on the website), or in the box at the top of the website.
We’re moved in to our new location and all of the ordering buttons on our pages are live again! We’ll start shipping again tomorrow (August 15).
Some wigs are still out of stock due to our wildly successful run of conventions (thank you everyone!) and still other wig styles are being discontinued- they’re marked as limited edition, with how many we have left. So be sure to check the wigs you’ve been waiting on buying!
The Five Wits are soon to be changing location, due to one of us getting a new full-time day job. Don’t worry, we’ll still be selling wigs online, going to conventions, publishing the webcomic, and doing everything we’ve been doing. However, there will be a brief hiatus while the wigs are in the moving truck and getting unpacked, and we’re getting internet hooked up at the new place. All the “add to cart” buttons are going to be disabled at this time, and while you can still email us and talk to us on Facebook we might take a while getting back to you.
In brief: We will not be taking website orders or shipping wigs from Aug 1-approximately Aug 15. The start date may be earlier, depending on how fast the move goes. We’ll keep you posted!
With the Canada Post strike over, we’ve re-enabled our Canadian shipping option. For those of you who told us to hold your order until the strike was over, we’ll have your stuff mailed for sure by the end of the week. Thanks for your patience, and please bear in mind that Canada Post has a giant backlog of stuff to ship now, so your receiving times may be a little slower than usual for a bit.
Unfortunately there is a postal strike going on right now in Canada, so we are temporarily unable to ship any orders to our Canadian customers. We’ve disabled Canadian shipping options, and for everyone affected who has ordered in the last week or so, we’ve emailed them to let them know their shipments that have already been sent will be delayed somewhere along the line. We’ve looked into alternate shipping options that don’t involve Canada Post, but FedEx starts around $35, which is too much for most customers to pay. If you are in Canada and have a wig emergency and don’t mind the high shipping cost, feel free to email us at email@example.com to set up arrangements. For everyone else, sorry about the bad luck, and as soon as the folks at Canada Post get this sorted out we’ll be up and running again!
Its been great to see how many people are working together to send support to Japan. We all obviously owe a lot to the Japanese people, and not just their famous artists, writers and celebrities. We want to see everybody cared for and given hope.
We wanted to do more over here than just donate, so we’re going to be giving away incentives to thank everyone else who is donating too!
Paypal is offering an easy way to donate to a number of reputable agencies on the ground. And its is covering all the processing fees, so that your entire donation goes where you meant it to.
Donate through Paypal to any one of the listed aid agencies, and forward us your e-receipt along with the email or snail mail address you want us to ship to, and we’ll send our own thank you!
Donate $5 and we will send you a matching discount code for your next order.
Donate $10 and we’ll send you a matching discount code for your next order.
Donate $20- $25 and we will ship you a free T-shirt.
Donate $30 or more and Birdy will draw you a Chaotic Goods style Stat Block, or portrait or whatnot as requested.
We’ll keep this up as long as we can.
Here’s the new weekly sale wig! There’s no special theme to the sales this month, so we could pick anything that we feel like discounting. This particular wig is discontinued, so when it’s gone, it’s gone.
SALE HAS ENDED
This short spiky blue work is ideal for Kamina from Gurren Lagann. It is approximately 3″ (8 cm) long, and comes out of the bag already in short spikes.
This week our white sale features a long white wig. It’s $10 off!
SALE HAS ENDED
This long white wig is a good style for Ukitake from Bleach, Ayame from Fruits Basket, and Marie (Soma) from Gundam 00. It is 31″ (80 cm) long and has soft, long bangs.
The new crop of wigs for January have arrived!
For short wigs we have:
Rukia and Ishida from Bleach, Rei from Evangelion, and Black Star from Soul Eater. Also our popular shaggy, easily spike-able style in a medium brown, a good color for Sora from Kingdom Hearts.
For ponytail wigs we have:
The Vocaloid Dell Honne, and Tsubaki and Maka from Soul Eater.
I think we’ve rounded out our collection of wigs for characters from Soul Eater. Can you tell we recently got addicted to that show?
Want to see the Five Wits in action? We were interviewed at New York Comic Con, and Derek was nice enough to let us share the video here on our site.
Merry Christmas and /or Happy Average Day to everybody on teh Internet. We hope your day is full of fun and generates stories to tell the survivors for years to come.
We’re looking forward to a big crazy year of excitement and conventions, and hope to see you guys in person somewhere along the way. Thanks to everybody who supported us this year, and made our gypsy existence possible! Without you guys, we would be unable to do what we do. And wow, we love what we do.
We’re working out ideas for January sales, getting together more wig styles, and drafting more webcomics. We hope you’ll like them.
If anybody out there enjoys YA adventure fiction and hasn’t found this site yet, Ruth has a free Holiday gift of writing and art (2 books and counting) at www.worldofshandor.com
However you spend your day, may it be full of geeky awesomesauce,
From all of us, to all of you.
New wigs styles have just appeared! On the long wigs page, you’ll find, by popular request, a wig styled for Sailor Pluto from Sailor Moon.
On the ponytail wigs page, we’ve got three new styles. To round out our rank of Vocaloids, we’ve got a wig for Len. We had a request for Shera Highwind from Final Fantasy Seven, so her wig is here too, and so is a nice blonde curly ponytail wig that would be great for Elizabeth from Black Butler.
Some of our ponytail wigs that were out of stock are available again. The wigs for the girl version of Ciel Phantomhive from Black Butler, the Vocaloid Miku, and Yoko from Gurren Lagann are back on the site and ready to be purchased. Several other out-of-stock wigs are back, too, so have a look around. We’ll have some more new styles up soon!
We love giving presents! This holiday season, with every order, we’ll ship a free gift. What will it be? Who knows? We have lots of fun and random things that will be sure to surprise you.
Hoping everyone had a great Thanksgiving! We did. Jess read aloud from the new Bujold Vorkosigan book, Jess and Ruth tag teamed dinner and Birdy got the new comic up! We finished up the day by going to see Deathly Hallows. We’ll start a Black Friday through Cyber Monday sale uncomfortably early tomorrow morning, so look for us then, or whenever you recover from turkey or tufurkey hangovers. Happy Holidays!
