I’ve never seen such a huge colour palette in my liiiiife.

I was supposed to post this last night (it is now 5 am) but we got back to the apt and I crashed. I’ve been consistently waking up at 4-5am since forever, so there’s that.

Anyway, this shop is a place called Assist Wig. I’ve visited two of their locations, Ikebukuro (pictured above) and Akihabara (as seen on Instagram) and bought two wigs from their basic line, one in a dark blue and one in a pastel green.

The wig quality is quite nice; their basic wigs lean a little on the thin side but the premium ones are thicker. As far as I can tell, they generally just come in one default style, which is straight – no curls here! But I’ve looked at their styled examples and watched them style a Saber wig and the wigs look good to work with. I will be curling one of mine so we’ll see what happens, but my god, is it strange/wonderful to see so many colours; I’ve been looking for that pastel green for over a year and hadn’t yet found one I was satisfied with.

Best of all: they ship internationally! We were greeted by a big ol sign telling us so.

Their website is here: www.assistcosplay.com

For those of you going to Japan sometime, the best directions I can give you in this land without street names:

The Ikebukuro location is up what is colloquially called Otome Rd; it’s a little west of Tokyu Hands, across the highway; it has a bright pink banner so you shouldn’t miss it, but there’s a cafe next door and a K-Books and Mandarake next to that. The Akihabara location is a few shops north of Animate, which has a giant blue sign you can’t miss; Assist is on the second floor of a little store that sells vintage video games. (I’ve never seen so many copies of FF7 in my life.)

this is so beautiful and according to their website they have 110 different colors.
