My first year cosplaying and I needed a wig for my Kurama cosplay. This was my first time ordering a wig so I wasn’t sure what to expect. I am very particular when it comes to details and colors. I wanted the perfect color for a Kurama wig and one that looked realistic, because his hair color is bright to begin with. I found one that I particularly liked.

Here’s the reference image of Kurama. I picked this one because it’s slightly darker than normal.

The wig I stumbled upon is from cosplayanimewigs.

I didn’t mind that it was curly because it was heat resistant as well. I prefer them to be heat resistant anyways because you never know when you need to straighten it, or curl it again.

I had a positive experience with this seller. The wig I received was a lot curlier than in this picture.

The color is almost exactly like the one in the picture. I really love the quality of it as well. It’s soft and feels like real human hair. They said it’s “Natural Heat Resistant Fiber.”

The shipping was fairly quickly as well. They shipped it on May 6th. I can’t remember the exact date I received it, but around the 14th, so it took about a week.

If you wish to purchase this wig, search “Copper Red Hi-Temp Long Curly Wavy Cosplay Wig” in the eBay search bar, or look through cosplayanimewigs’s profile page.

EDIT (2/14/2011): I get asked questions about this wig all the time. As far as I know, the eBay seller I bought it from doesn’t sell it anymore. I sent them an e-mail asking if they sell it and I will update the reply! (You can find the same wig on their eBay, but the image is different, and the wig is a darker red.) If you searched the wig, you’ll find another seller that uses the same image as the one I bought it from. (Even the same watermark..) I can’t comment on the wig because I’ve never ordered from their store. Just make sure you check the name when you search it! The store I purchased from was “CosplayAnimeWigs.” The store that has the same image is “CosplayAnimeWig.”

EDIT (2/19/2011): I received a reply from the seller, and they said that there had been a listing error. The same wig can be purchased at the website! Located hereClick here for the wig link!
