One common question we hear all the time about cosplay wigs goes something like this…

“I don’t want to spend a lot of money on some expensive wig. Why can’t I just buy a cheap one somewhere?”

Now here’s the thing. You can buy a wig anyplace you want. But what some people will tell you that the reason you should spend a lot on an expensive wig is that you’re never going to be happy with a “cheap” one. You’re not going to be satisfied wearing something that’s really poor quality because it will make your costume appear cheap too (even if you slaved away over your costume, putting a ton of time and effort into it).

So, the argument goes, you don’t want to have all that time and effort wasted by trying to save a few bucks on a cheap wig. Better to save yourself the heartache and spend a little more on a wig. It’ll be totally worth it.

And that all definitely makes sense. Two things though.

First, not everyone has money to spend on an expensive wig.

Second, just because a wig doesn’t cost a lot, it doesn’t mean it’s a cheap piece of garbage.

Wigs for cosplay have become so popular and there’s now a ton of awesome options out there. And a lot of good quality options too that won’t break the bank. No matter what style and color you’re after.
