Get Inspired with Wigs for Costume Inspiration!

When it comes to creating the perfect costume, details count. Whether you're preparing for a themed party, cosplay event, Halloween, or a theatrical performance, the right wig can make all the difference.

At Sole Wig Works, we believe that every great costume starts and ends with a fantastic wig. We understand the importance of quality wigs in bringing your costume to life. Let's chat about how our wigs can help you achieve the perfect look and inspire your creativity.

Costumes are a way to step into another character, era, or persona. Wigs and hair set the time period. An A-line dress with modern hair is just an A-line dress. But an A-line dress with a chignon and a wave at the front is straight out of a 50’s playbook. A vest and flared pants would look odd in today’s world but add an afro or a shaggy hair doo with a bandana and everyone instantly gets that you are straight outa the 70’s.

Barbie is one of the hottest costume themes right now which is rather appropriate seeing as a fundamental philosophy of Barbie is “you can do, or be anything”. Many iconic Barbies have been and gone over the years and one way she differentiated herself was by her outfits and by her hair, which were all reflective of her time.

Starting off with the original 60’s Barbie with her ‘clipped’ appearance, neat ponytail and formal attire, Malibu Barbie burst onto the scene in the 70’s with her more laid back facial expression and long platinum blonde hair. Fast forward to the 90’s where Air Force Barbie was patrolling the skies with her leather bomber jacket and tight curled bob. We think we should all be more like Barbie and experiment with outfits and styles - whether we are trialing a new look for ourselves or finding the best costume for our next themed party. And don’t forget, we no long have to commit to ‘getting a chop’ to trial a new look as wigs are being used more widely than ever. Try the classic blonde wig just like Barbie or level up your natural locks with a clip in ponytail. We have short wigs, long wigs, red wigs and blonde wigs and just about everything else in between. The options are endless and none of it is wrong.
