Is this close to coming back in stock?
It should be back in stock before the end of the month.
It’s back in stock!
With ths type of wig am I able to use hot irons on it without it destroying/burning the wig?
Yes! Just keep the setting on the lower end of things. It doesn’t take a lot of heat to get the results you want. 🙂
can this be used as a mituna wig?
Yep. It’s the fluffiest of the short black wigs we carry.
Is this a wig that you’d recommend for R from the movie verison of Warm Bodies?
I think it might be too fluffy. I’d recommend Cocky Commander General Snap instead. If you want something that’s a medium length/fluffiness between those two, there’s also Super Master Genius Trainer.
Would this wig be good to use for Kirito in SAO (Sword Art Online)?
If you want his hair in black, I’d actually go for Super Master Genius Trainer instead.
However some art seems to show his hair as a very dark blue, and if you’re going for that, try Intergalactic Manly Fluff.
Do you think this’ll be in stock by the time March begins? I need it for Megacon on March 16 🙁
Probably not that soon. Sorry! 🙁 We’re expecting it back in a couple months.
Will this wig be back in stock before May? D:
We hope so? ^^; Sorry, our delivery date on the restock isn’t exact- it’ll be three months (so June-ish) at most, but hopefully it will arrive before that!
Oooooor maybe it will arrive unexpectedly early. It’s back in stock now!
Hey, how did you style it to be like Gamzee Makara’s hair (or Kurloz) without using hair spray? :)?
The girl holding it in the photo just styled it with her hands. You kind of twist the wig fiber into spikes and it holds! This wig is magical when it comes to styling.
Hello, do you have many of these in stock? I’d love to order, but unfortunately I’d have to wait about a week to place it. Just wondering if I’ll have to order sooner!
We’ve got a lot, but they’ve been selling very fast! A week should still be alright, but order as soon as you can.
Do you think this wig would work well for cosplaying Sollux from Homestuck?
I usually recommend Cocky Commander General Snap or Quincy Sparkle Glasses Flash for Sollux. Which wig you choose depends on how prominent you want to make those bits that stick up on the back of his hair.
I’m doing James Potter Cosplay. Do you think this wig will go. Maybe if you cut it a bit?
Thanks for your help.
This might work a bit better for James: http://thefivewits.net/2011/04/cocky-commander-general-snap/
Thanks a lot 🙂 That one’s perfect.
Hi! I was wondering… would this wig would work for Nepeta? Thank you!
Yes! It fluffs out great at the bottom with little work. 🙂
Can you wash this wig? If so, how should it be handled?
You can wash this; and any of our wigs, in a bowl of water with a bit of baby shampoo. Let it soak a little. Swish it only gently, (and not enough to make new tangles, if you are washing a longer wig than this) and lightly finger comb any area that you need to work styling product back out of. Rinse, and lay out to dry on a towel. Once dry, it’s ready to comb and style again!
Do you think this wig would work for Yuffie Kisaragi from FFVII? I’m having trouble finding a wig that matches her bob. :c Any guidance is greatly appreciated.
I think Smoldering Antihero Type might be a closer match.
Thank you very much for the help~ I’ll look into it. 🙂
Will this wig be good for L from Death Note?
It would work it seems, but it may be a bit short. http://thefivewits.net/2010/06/super-master-genius-trainer/ Super Master Genius Trainer is a bit longer and can be styled to look like L, as seen in the picture. ^.^
Wow, Olivia, you are great! You beat me to the punch in answering. Yes, in fact the Super Master Genius Trainer was originally designed for L from Death Note, so it’s great for him. The Death by Smoking Butterfly is very styleable and could probably be made to work, but the bangs are not as in-your-face.
Thanks. Honestly, I probably spend way too much time drooling over all the cosplay wigs I’d like to have here. Thought I’d help out a bit if I could, you guys seem so busy and behind on replying to comments sometimes. Hope you don’t mind. :3
No, it’s fine! We love that you love our wigs. It’s con season, so we’re on the road with intermittent internet access most of the time, so we never mind a little help. 🙂
Do this wig come with a bald cap? 🙂
Also, how much is the shipping fee to Sweden?
And, for the final question, how long will it take for me
to get the wig? 🙂
The wig cap doesn’t come with the wig, but we sell them separately for a dollar: http://thefivewits.net/2010/06/wig-cap/
If you choose standard international shipping, which doesn’t include a tracking number, shipping to Sweden should be around $9-$12 for this wig. Our customers in Northern Europe normally get their packages in around 2 weeks, though customs can make it take longer. We do offer faster shipping which has a tracking number but costs a lot more (starts around $35).
Would this be a good wig for if you want to cosplay Meenah?
Yup! Here is is shown with the matching braid clips to complete a Meenah cosplay.
What is the maximum size of head this wig will fit? I have a big head and a ton of hair and it’s hard to find wigs big enough, so I need the measurements.
Would this wig work for John Egbert from Homestuck?
Yes. 🙂 The black wig works especially well if you want to style it into his spikes.
Does this wig work for John Egbert?
This one can work, but usually we recommend Smoldering Antihero Type.
Do you guys have manaquin heads or anything like that on the site? I just started doing this stuff and have nothing and do you still have these in stock?
We do not sell those online anymore. 🙁 Sorry! We recommend Sally’s Beauty Supply and Halloween stores.
Damn, oh well. Thanks for the help though 🙂
Hey, I bought this wig at the first Holiday Matsuri from you guys, and I just wanted to say, it was a really great purchase. It’s been my go-to wig for Mituna Captor ( http://www.acparadise.com/ace/display.php?p=268893 ) and John Egbert ( https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=322532377881656 ) from Homestuck, and I’ve gotten tons of compliments and people asking me where I bought it! I recommend this wig to people all of the time.
(PS, if you ever stocked this wig in white, I would definitely buy it!)
Would this be good for a Marshall Lee cosplay?
DoEs ThIs CoMe WiTh A hAiR nEt?
No, they don’t come with a wig cap but you can buy one here.http://thefivewits.net/2010/06/wig-cap/
Hello! Is this wig (or any of your wigs, for that matter) suitable/adjustable for those cosplayers with larger heads?
Thanks in advance!
Nearly all of our wigs have adjustable straps on the inner edge and are quite stretchy, and we’ve helped fit them on a lot of head sizes. One of our regular models has a 24″ head and two feet of hair, for comparison.
Wow, I’d just like to say I ordered this wig, and the delivery was super duper speedy! (All the way to the UK, too!) Not just that, but the wig itself is amazing and perfect in every way, and pretty darn versatile for several different characters <3 You guys are great, thank you so much. Definitely my new go-to store for wigs.
Thank you!! <3
Would this work as a Rufioh Nitram cosplay?
It is a nice fluffy black wig that can be spiked up easily, and you can sew some red wefts into them- our red bang clips might be a little too short, but if they’re sufficient for you they could be detached from their clips and sewn in. Send us pictures if you finish it! 😀
