So this will be my first time doing a cosplay and I bought a wig specifically to do so. As this thread name implies, the wig is itchy v_v. Are there any congoers out there with a bit of advice for reducing wig itchyness, or is general consensus I must suffer for my art? Also, what kind of wigs are you guys going to be wearing to the con?

Wig caps work wonders, but other than that, I got nothing. Where did you buy your wig? Some low-quality wigs tend to be really itchy because the linings are not made of good materials.

Yup - use a wig cap and moisturize your scalp. It could just be the lining and the scalp friction causing the itching.

Ditto on wig cap. I have a really itchy scalp normally and the wig will make it worse for the first 10 minutes or so, but then it usually gets better.

Wigs caps are amazing. But if you can't find one before the con, panty-hose works as well too. It may sounds weird, but trust me, it works, lol.

I have really cheap wigs....a wig cap helps but sometimes there is somthing poking your head or itchying your neck and you'll have to suffer for you art. :lol: That just shows how much dedication you have to cosplaying ;) ............. Unless you can find the problem and somehow fix it without destroying the wig.

Cool guys! Thanks for the advice! If the wig cap is a no-go, I guess it's off to buy some pantyhose...

Wig caps were also itchy for me, right on the edges of it on my forehead. XD But the one thing I hated about the wig cap I bought was that it was SO TIGHT. It gave me a headache after wearing it for a half hour. I have a small head, too. D: Haven't worn a wig cap since then, but I know there are better wig caps out there, so hopefully you can find a good one.

Did you happen to buy a used, lice-infested wig perchance? Other than that, wigs don't bother me.

the only thing I have to get used to with the wig is having such long hair. It feels odd on my back..lol
