Costume wigs in Yardley can actually be pretty hard to find. Sure, you have the Halloween stores that open for part of the year and even a party store or two not too far of a drive, but those wigs are made for one-time wear typically. In reality, many of them are hardly made for that. They fall apart and/or fall off before the event is over.
Whether you are looking at going to a costume or theme party, an anime convention for cosplay, or something else, you are probably someone who puts some time and thought into your costume. Why should the costume wig be any different?
For numerous outfits, this is one of the most attention-getting pieces—it matters more than the clothes or makeup. Even if the clothes and makeup are more important, the wig can still make a major difference.
So, you are going to want to look for one that is comfortable to wear and will last through the night. For something like that, there is no denying there is going to be a bit of an investment. And, if you’re spending good money on something like a costume wig, shouldn’t it be made to last?
While the style and color of the wig are not always the most natural, the base material is. Real hair wigs can also be styled in different ways, so the one you pick may serve you for many different outfits or even a night on the town, and no one has to know it’s a costume wig.
If you are looking for costume wigs in Yardley or anywhere in the Philadelphia area, you owe it to yourself to check out the best and see why the rest really aren’t worth your time.
Have Fun with Color
Dyeing real human hair wigs are possible, but typically it should be done as part of the wig-making process. That’s why specifically ordering wigs that have color applied during their original processing can be an excellent choice for those in need of a colored, human hair wig.
For those just looking for something bright and fun, synthetic fibers come in many colors. Shopping their wide array of available styles may provide the bright, fun, multi-colored wigs many are looking for in modern costuming.
For performers that need a wig to survive and thrive with them for each night of an act or show, choosing a high-quality costume wig is a must. Whether they need a period-specific look or a wig that can hold up to lots of on-and-offs as they get off stage, there are options for performers out there.
At Wig Elegance, we are happy to work with local theatre or show companies to satisfy the needs of their costuming departments with high-quality wigs. We carry all of the accessories and can track down wig duplicates for understudies and back-up options.
Historical reenactors are another group that needs accurate, high-quality wigs. Whether they reenact the Civil War, host Jane Austen tea parties, or work at historical sites, getting the look right for their chosen historical period is key.
Wig Elegance staff can help them track down uniquely colored wigs, such as Revolutionary War powdered white wigs, as well as help style wigs into an appropriate Regency look for your next Jane Austen convention.
Cosplay—or costume play where one dresses up as a character or favorite celebrity—is an artform slowly becoming more mainstream. With competitions, conventions, and more, high-end cosplay is a very serious hobby that people put great care into getting right.
In tourist locations, some even turn cosplay into a job, posing for photos with tourists in highly trafficked areas as popular icons such as Captain Marvel or Michael Jackson.
The number one sign of quality in cosplay is accurate hair and outfit portrayal, particularly for characters with distinct hairstyles. Choosing human hair wigs that hold up to intensive styling can be a great choice for semi-professional cosplayers.
For those just looking for fun when they head to their local comic convention once a year, synthetic fibers will be a better option to fit both a pre-styled cosplay look and budget.
Similar to Cosplay, LARPing—Live Action Role Playing—is a game that takes place in person with players typically dressed up in costume. Their characters are often derived from fantasy or science fiction and require elaborate headwear.
Since these are for play and not for a professional endeavor, most LARPers are looking to stick to a budget. In that case, synthetic wigs can be a great option. Not only are they designed for less frequent wear, but they are also disposed to a wider variety of fun colors and styles.
Synthetic wigs are not as easily restyled, due to less heat tolerance, but for a roleplayer looking for a distinct style that is easy to care for, a pre-styled wig will do the trick.
Wigs don’t have to be a serious thing. In fact, most of the time they’re a lot of fun! At Wig Elegance we love to help people develop a character and personality with just the right hair. Find your next costume wig at Wig Elegance when you stop by or call (215) 945-4900.
