Too much fun today!!!! We got to talk about cosplays we are thinking of doing and how to construct them in the different methods. We talked about the value of going to a thrift store to buy something that you can alter versus buying a pattern and making it from scratch.
We also got to learn about some wigs and try them on of course! It was cool to see the physical difference of texture and quality between the ones that were 100% High Temperature Fiber and the non heat resistant. Considering there wasn’t much price difference ( $10 up to $25), we decided the best bang for your buck would for sure be the high temperature fiber ones. Our favorites from the collection was the Mapofbeauty Men’s short straight wig. You can check it out here.
As you can see its cute for normal wear, Cassandra Pentaghast from Dragon Age Inquisition, and Marian Hawke from Dragon Age 2.
Our other favorite was of course the Arimika Fashion 14inch Blonde Tight Kinky Curl Short Heat Resistant Synthetic Hair Women Wig. Check it out here.
Its been the go to River Song cosplay wig! Its also high temp heat resistant.
Another cool wig was a face front Outre Lace Front Wig – TESS (DX2327) . It was bought as a potential Thorin Oakenshield cosplay and it may do very well! It is a very high quality wig even though its the lower price point for lace front wigs.
Good times were had by all!
