The busiest time of the year for all wig and costume suppliers is bearing down on us, with new collections now available for an exciting Halloween. Costume wigs are vital ingredients for an authentic Halloween outfit and here we present the top 10 picks for the scary season;
10. The Jessie J / Mia Wallace Wig
An iconic character from the classic Pulp Fiction movie, and a popular choice for Halloween, is the chain smoking, hip swinging, drug taking Mia Wallace played by Uma Thurman. An easy costume to replicate – think fake cigarettes, white shirt, cropped black trousers and a bloody nose – with the all important blunt, black, bobbed wig. An instantly recognised look and a great alternative to the more traditional costumes.
9. The Brown Granny Wig
A versatile wig for a range of characters. Ideal for the dictator-like Professor Dolores Umbridge from the Harry Potter films and a perfect accessory to any Susan Boyle costume. Popular with both men and women and easily styled to create a unique ghost or zombie hair style. Add some blood, dried leaves and use your hands to make the curls more untidy and – voila!
8. The Marie Antoinette Wig
Marie Antoinette is an eternally popular character to dress as for Halloween, particularly with the ladies searching for a feminine look and wishing to avoid the traditional blood and gore. The design of this deluxe wig ensures an adaptable look, perfect for ghosts and the ‘undead’. The classic ringlets and ultra white colouring combines to make a predictably popular choice for the upcoming season.
7. The Jessica Rabbit Wig
Probably our best selling wig this year, with scores of creative customers looking to replicate the style of the sexiest cartoon character in history. With it’s luscious layers and seductive side sweep, we predict the popularity of our authentic looking Jessica Rabbit wig to climax in October.
6. The Lady Gaga Black Super Wig
We will undoubtedly see a host of Lady Gaga inspired creations at Halloween parties and events this year. With an incredible selection of styles sported by the star, the choice is endless. For the more traditional costumes, a long black wig is often the finishing touch. Witches, vampires, ghouls, femme fatales and an array of film villain favourites are known for their long, dark locks and this super deluxe, extra long black costume wig is the most versatile of the bunch.
5. The Black Burlesque Wig
With a huge surge in demand for burlesque outfits for the Halloween celebrations this year, we predict the Black Burlesque Wig to literally dance off the shelves. The industry has created some alternative ‘darker’ burlesque creations, especially for Halloween 2012 as well as the classic corset/bustle skirt designs that are sure to be popular this year – our deluxe rolled wig is ideal for either look.
4. The Cruella Deville Wig
Disney‘s most popular villain is a relatively easy look to replicate and hugely popular throughout the Halloween season. Think faux fur, monochrome print, long cigarette holders and the famous black and white two-tone wig. An instantly recognised style, perfect for customers wishing to embrace the ‘evil’ aspect of the festivities, mixed with the glamorous, bold and bright style of Cruella Deville.
3. The Edward Cullen Wig
Everyone’s favourite vampire, and supposedly the best looking being on the planet, the Twilight Saga’s Edward Cullen character is known for his changing eye colour and unique hair style. With the final instalment of the film series reaching our shores in November, we predict that the Twihards will be out in force this year, paying tribute to their heroes. Groups of Volturi inspired nasties and Edward & Bella couples will take over the nation this October, with contact lenses and quiffed wigs at the ready.
2. The Bellatrix Lestrange Wig
The most evil of witches with a passion for murdering muggles is a firm favourite with Harry Potter fans, looking for a sinister character to embrace during the Halloween season. Long dark clothing and the all important wand paired with her signature matted hair will create the instantly recognised outline. The deluxe Bellatrix Lestrange wig is already selling fast.
1. The Blood Streaked Zombie Wig
Responding to overwhelming customer demand for a gruesome wig to complement the huge selection of zombie costumes from the Womens Halloween Fancy Dress collection, our deluxe Blood Streaked wig has just been released for the Halloween season. The fashionable long, blonde, curly wig features blood red streaks directly from the scalp, giving the appearance of a serious head wound. Ideal for zombie cheerleaders, school girls, prom queens and nurses – the biggest costumes of the year.
