Calgary Comic Expo is nearly upon us and those last minute costumes are starting to be pieced together just in time! One of the most defining factors of a cosplay can be the hairstyle and color as well as how realistic and natural it seems paired with your carefully detailed outfit. While you can spend the time to customize your own hair, when there is a large selection of synthetic wigs, styled and un-styled, at your disposal why waste the extra minutes of preparation? At The Costume Shoppe we carry wigs from a wide range of quality and price points, making sure we have just what you had in mind! Our most prominent brands are the Arda Wigs and the Rockstar wigs which have a realistic feel for multiple uses and extended wear, while our other synthetic kinds are perfect for single nights out on the town without the commitment.
In response to the voice actor Jodi Benson attending Calgary Comic Expo, why not pay homage to a classic Disney film and complete a cosplay of the beloved red-headed mermaid Ariel!
