So of course many of you have heard about Match Wigs and their facebook page debacle. Here’s the skinny of what happened in one paragraph.
Match Wigs hired the wrong person to run their facebook, tumblr and instagram. That person was unfamiliar with the cosplay protocols for crediting cosplayers and photographers. Photographers and cosplayers went uncredited in photos on their social media accounts, and it became known by those cosplayers and photographers. After many complaints, eventually that information got to the founder, Sim, who immediately started work by firing that wrong person and clearing out their facebook, tumblr and instagram of any and all cosplay photos not directly submitted.
So essentially, an employee made a mistake, and a company fixed it. But tumblr has a hivemind, and it’s important to set it straight.
Match Wigs is NOT a scam website. The wigs pictured on their site are the EXACT wigs they keep in stock. They are a wig site focused on quality customer service, and one that I have personally used for numerous cosplays with great satisfaction. Homestuckcosplayhelp will KEEP their partnership with this company, and stand behind them as they recover from what can be best described as an accidental PR nightmare.
And that’s that.
i was looking at super long wigs and i passed over this one!
it looks really good after looking at refrences of Feferi (since i thought of her when i saw this) the bang may be problematic but its about whats your own headcanon and such! (you can always style it) It costs $29.79. I havent tried it myself, but it seems pretty good!
I ordered This wig http://www.ebay.com/itm/Blonde-Wig-Straight-with-Bangs-WGJF03-/320991928385 For my roxy cosplay. It arrived in only a few days and looked great right out of the box! It was much lighter and quite shorter than expected. But, i believe it was so short because i have alot of hair. Overall A+ wig. I would reccomend, especially if you need a roxy wig FAST.
Heres a picture of me wearing it straight out of the box without any styling http://25.media.tumblr.com/b8f6d7e398ba42846a154e2335921c3b/tumblr_mmkd4oGQV21qjritco1_500.jpg

At some point during a con or cosplay, YOU WILL NEED TO GO TO THE BATHROOM, but if your arms/hands are covered in makeup/armsocks that you can’t take off you will be stuck with soiled hands the rest of the day. Nobody wants fecal matter or urine on their body. You will smell disgusting and be a major health risk.
The solution: bring disposable latex gloves to put on then throw them away when your done! Your hands stay clean and you don’t have to reapply makeup/clothes! Get the one-wear kind doctors or lunch ladies wear, do not get dish gloves they are really expensive per pair!
You can find these for about $9 for 100 at Walmart
Here’s what I found for target
Walgreens has a lot of good deals as well $3.59 for 80
You can also find them online in places for REALLY CHEAP

this makes a pretty good Rose wig, it’s relatively cheap and can easily be worn with a headband.
It arrived a couple weeks early and comes with a wig cap.

I was searching for somewhere on ebay to get some model magic for horns (since i have heard so much great things about it!) and since i live in Europe (aka Norway) its extremly hard finding someone who ships to Europe and in my search i found this!
I havent reccived it yet since i bought it last night but Ebay tells me it has already been dispatched!

While I was cruising ebay for a dave wig I found this pretty swell base wig for Roxy. It’s apparently a tiger and bunny wig and I’ve bought from these guys before, they’re pretty awesome!
I hope this was helpful! I know getting wigs to get all flippy like that is a hassle, lordy jesus.

Mod Note: I actually own this wig for my Roxy cosplay and I suggest is 100% it’s a fantastic wig and honest to god comes out of the bag looking like that.

I haven’t personally bought from them myself, but I’ve heard very good things about The Five Wits Wigs! Looking at their selection, they seem to offer some great wigs. They are a bit more pricey than, say, ebay, but they’re based in the U.S. and that makes them all the more reliable. In particular, they have a pretty good wig for Roxy and detachable Meenah braids! Hope this helps!

I know a lot of people have problems trusting sites they’ve never heard of (
as do I) so here are some full body suits on amazon (a fairly well heard of website) They seem to be decent quality. Hope I helped :)

It’s really cozy but could be made with a cooler material, too.

Hey there! Just wanted to say that Insomnium Wigs is great
They’ve got some great wigs that can work for homestuck cosplays such as:
Karkat, John, Jake:
Sollux: (would need a little styling)
Vriska, Aradia, Feferi, Jade, & any other troll girls with long curly black hair:

I went ahead and ordered them in Gray Black because the Gray are out of stock and look like they have been for a while (I waited about a week or two before finally deciding to give #18 a try)
Now as mentioned in one of the posts, they are SOOO nice and soft and they come in such a nice variety of colors
However, being Gray Black, they are a little darker than I would like
Lighting also seems to be an issue because when pictured the color seems pretty accurate:
But if you’re sitting around in a dark corner or something, the tights are gonna look drastically darker
I’ll update when my Snazaroo comes in the mail to compare colors (and maybe actually go outside into the light to take the pictures oops.)

Mod Note: His actual wand is canon as Hermione’s wand from Harry Potter but this is a nice alternative.
