Wigs for Elf Costumes for Halloween or Cosplay

A Beautiful Wig is the Centerpiece for Your Costume

One of the most important parts of any elf costume, be it for Halloween or cosplay, is the hair. Shiny, colorful tresses are one of the most notable things about elves, male or female.

Elf wigs can be long or short, curly or straight. There are a wide variety of colors to choose from. Some people prefer natural colors like blonde, or auburn or black, while many others prefer the colors of the rainbow. Night elves from World of Warcraft are well known for their brightly colored hair. Purple, green, blue, teal, the sky is the limit!

Costumes of a more malevolent nature often require dark hair. Black, dark purple or navy blue is a good choice for dark elves and evil fairy elves. All look great under a hooded cloak or with a mysterious mask or eye patch.

Proper care for your wig is also an important part of keeping it nice to wear another day, so I have included a video on wig care as well as a tutorial on the best way to put on a wig.

Long and Curly Wigs

Gorgeous with a Flowing Robe

These fabulous wigs are the ultimate look for elf costumes. Add one of these to a long, trailing robe or cloak……what could be more elven? So many colors to choose from, lovely purple, blue, green or pink. Some are multicolored like the gorgeous blonde and pink one. Any of these wigs would be the crowning glory of an elf costume!
