The perfect touch for that Cosplay outfit: a MelodySusie wig

Every year, we go to Chicago in December for a national athletic competition that my youngest daughter competes in…but that’s not really the highlight of the weekend. The highlight is the AnimeCon that is also going on at the same venue. You would not believe the incredible costumes and makeup! I could sit there and people watch for hours and hours and while I probably should be watching my younger daughter in her fencing competition, I’m far more fascinated with the extravagant makeup and costumes. My older daughter actually participates in the AnimeCon and has a fantastic time. We got her some costumes for Christmas gifts and while I don’t begin to understand them – or understand the cosplay characters – I do get dressing up! Here are the costume items that she loved the most:

MelodySusie sent me several of their wigs to try and they are truly perfect for cosplay outfits. These wigs are inexpensive but they are comfortable and actually quite realistic looking.  They come in many colors and lengths, both long and short.  Melodysusie says the hair is made from “South Korean Kanekalon fiber. Kanekalon is the gold standard for professional-grade synthetic hair and boasts a much more realistic and lifelike look than lower-quality fibers.” I went with three of their full length best-sellers that I knew Marina could wear that were totally different from her currently short hair. This is what Marina looks like right now without a wig:

I was sent three different wigs by MelodySusie:  the Cosplay Red Curly Wig ($25.99) the Cosplay Blonde Curly Wig ($25.99), and the Dark Brown Curly Wig ($25.99).  They come in all sorts of colors like blue and pink, and while I got all long wigs, they also have some great shorter styles as well.  The MelodySusie LyfeLike wigs all come with a hair net and a wig comb,and they are very easy to wear and look incredibly realistic for the price point. The hair looks real, it moves like real hair, and you can cut it and style it any way you want. Inside the wigs are head caps with adjustable head straps so they stay on without tons of bobby pins.

First, Marina tried on the Cosplay Red Curly Wig. This is the most unrealistic looking wig of the three – it definitely looks like a costume wig. Marina and I agreed it was also the least flattering on her in terms of color, but I know some women can really rock this shade. Regardless, it’s the exact shade needed for quite a few cosplay costumes and the price is right – especially if you have Amazon Prime!

The Cosplay Blonde Curly Wig is so much fun! I couldn’t resist trying it on either…and man, I do NOT look good as a blonde. Marina pulls it off, though. She really liked it, and it definitely works for lots of potential cosplay costumes.

The Dark Brown Curly Wig  is closest to her natural hair color, so it was no surprise that this one was the most flattering on her. Marina used to have very long hair that she cut off and donated and I think she really enjoyed having long curls again!!

I know that Marina will wear this for cosplay dress up, but she will also probably wear it when going out dancing with her friends as well.

How much fun is this?? The Cosplay wigs are perfect for cosplay dress up or for Halloween or hey, just for spicing things up in the bedroom! These MelodySusie wigs are pretty realistic looking and the price is definitely right. Order some for lots of fun and a change of paced…or for your grandkids, who will think you are the coolest grandma EVER.  – Lisa
