badwolf09 asked: Hi I love your rose tyler "idiots lantern" costume! :D I was wondering where you got the wig from or if you know where I could find a similar wig that I could style?? Im trying to cosplay as her too, I tried dyeing my hair but it didnt work! so now I have to attempt a wig, I bought a cheap one but its too thin to style :O Yours looks amazing!
A couple things about eBay; if you want your wig in a timely manner, make sure the seller is in your country. A lot of sellers are from China and the prices are usually very good, but shipping can take a long time depending (though to be fair, it’s gotten better over the years). And then pay attention to the percentage of positive feedback. I generally go with sellers with over 98% positive feedback. If they sell a LOT, it’s difficult to have 100% positive feedback cause there are crazy buyers out there too.
Here are a couple current links to the wig I got from StyleWigs:
I know there are other sellers that sell the same wig as well if you search. I basically looked for a medium length blonde wig that seemed to match Rose’s hair color. And I wanted to make sure it would have the long bangs on the side of the face if I pulled the hair back.
And if you need beehive styling tips, I linked the tutorial I used here: http://tineyho.tumblr.com/post/32871711238/hello-there-i-loved-your-rose-tyler-cosplay-and-i-was
I hope you find a wig that works for you. :)
