‘I’ve got gadgets and gizmos aplenty, I’ve got whozits and whatzits galore’. We have to admit that ‘The Little Mermaid’ is probably our favourite Disney film. A beautiful heroine, talking lobster, singing fish, a handsome prince and a happy ending – what more could you want from a film? Ariel is also a popular character to dress up as, and with her distinctive long flowing, auburn coloured hair an Ariel wig is usually required. For the complete Disney Princess look go for exaggerated eyelashes, arched, animated eyebrows and red lips. For the most deluxe Ariel Little Mermaid wig check out our costume wigs collection – with FREE UK delivery and a range of options for our European, Australian and American customers.
Two years ago this week Universal Studios opened their most exciting project in years – the Wizarding World Of Harry Potter. The most successful book series in history and the most successful film franchise ever was brought to life with magical shops, the Three Broomsticks Pub, Hosgmeade Village and even Hogwarts Castle. Guests are able to drink Butterbeer, take part in a wand choosing ceremony in Ollivanders and experience the most amazing theme park ride ever created.
Harry Potter characters are always a popular choice for Halloween, particularly the exceptionally evil Bellatrix Lestrange. Helen Bonham Carter’s character is depicted as just as frightening as Lord Voldemort himself, the perfect witch for Harry Potter fans to imitate in costume for Halloween. A Bellatrix costume is easy to put together – a long black dress, matching fingerless gloves and of course a wand are important items. Add a Bellatrix Lestrange Wig from our costume wigs category and perfect the deadened eye, Azkaban look with a step by step make up tutorial.
The burlesque movement is still going strong all around the world and now this exotic pastime is a popular choice for a fancy dress costume, particularly amongst hen parties. Think opera length gloves, uplifting corsets, suggestive bustle skirts and luxurious stockings. A true pin up look also needs some victory rolls and perfect waves when it comes to a sophisticated 1940’s hairstyle. These styles can be pretty tricky to perfect and not possible with shorter hair lengths. Our solution is a gorgeous burlesque wig, already styled into an authentic look using lavish kanekalon hair. The feedback has been overwhelming and we are excited to present our newest design from our costume wigs selection.
Nicki Minaj is well known for her exotic and eccentric wigs and her love for the colour – Barbie pink. Every red carpet arrival, TV appearance and concert performance sees the super cool singing star sport a new wig. We just can’t wait to see what she comes up with next! Nicki Minaj costumes have become so popular of late and we predict that this will be a big trend for the Halloween season. One of her more famous wigs is the pink, curly afro style she modelled for her album cover and we are excited to introduce this fabulous new style, available in our Celebrity Wigs collection.
For your Nicki Minaj costume think pink leopard or giraffe print, a big chunky diamante ‘Barbie’ necklace and some furry leg warmers. Alternatively, the singer seems to indulge rainbow colouring and has been spotted in multi colour dresses, tutus and leg warmer style boot covers. Once you have decided upon your Nicki Minaj costume and chosen a wig from the range, it is important to perfect the make up. Check out the video below showing a step by step guide on how to achieve one of her funky looks.
With the Halloween season approaching we know many of you are starting to think about which character you will be dressing up as this year. It’s a good idea to dress as someone others will recognise without having to ask ‘so, who have you come as…?’ (awkward). Characters who are known for their unique costumes, hair styles, make up and/or props are ideal – one example being Jessica Rabbit (who in fact ticks the box in every category).
The sexiest animated character in history evokes glamour, Hollywood style and possesses a huge amount of sex appeal. Her famous costume includes a revealing, long red dress and contrast purple gloves, her make up is delightfully animated and her suggestive cigarette holder is her prop of choice. Mrs Roger Rabbit models the most glamorous of hair styles in a seductive red colour and is an important part of any Jessica Rabbit costume. Our Jessica Rabbit costume wig is an exact replica of the cartoon character’s style featuring a sexy side parting and long red layers. The hair feels and moves like real hair due to the Japanese kanekalon fibres and can be brushed and styled as needed. Find this fabulous, deluxe design in our costume wigs category.

One of Britain’s most talented musicians and undoubtedly a fashion forward starlet when it came to both her wardrobe and hair styles, Amy Winehouse makes a fabulous character to dress as for an array of themes. No Amy Winehouse costume would be complete without her signature pin up style tattoos, winged eye liner and red lip stick. This celebrity was most definitely influenced by the 60’s genre of fashion and was often seen sporting fitted mini dresses when it came to concert appearances and red carpet walks. One of our favourite videos in which her now iconic style is portrayed beautifully is ‘Tears Dry On Their Own’.
The celebrity’s unique hair style is particularly famous. The bouffant beehive style and long, layered curls is rather hard to re-create. For a truly authentic costume an Amy Winehouse wig is required and we have designed a beautiful tribute costume wig for those looking to replicate the singer’s look. The Amy Winehouse celebrity costume wigs feel and flow like real hair (made from 100% deluxe kanekalon fibre) and can be brushed, styled, pinned and sprayed if required. With an adjustable cap to fit all head sizes and a genuinely deluxe quality feel to this beautiful costume wig, it is already a popular style from our range.
Once your costume, Amy Winehouse wig and temporary tattoos have been selected it is important to recreate the singer’s make up. Check out this great video below with step by step instructions on how to get the Amy Winehouse look.
