Bite Size Cosplay Tips: Wig Prep For Your Head

Hey friends! I’m back to share another cosplaying tip with you all. This one is about if you’re wearing a wig, especially for the first time. Now, you don’t need to wear a wig but it can help sell your cosplay sometimes. One thing I’d wish I’d known before hand is how much a wig can make your head hurt by the end of the day! I don’t wear headbands or fitted caps regularly so after spending 8+ hours in a wig and wig cap my head was ready to explode!

I decided I needed to avoid that the following year so I came up with a plan. I would wear a headband every day for as long as I could to get myself used to the feeling. I started about a month before the con. Oh boy did it make a WORLD of difference. I was able to enjoy all of my cosplay time until I was ready to be done. I know it may seem silly but trust me, your head will thank you.

I hope this was helpful and will keep your heads from hurting! Until next time!!
