Whether you have 4c natural hair or wish for kinky curly hair, any and all hair types are easily found on the web. My girlfriend is something of a cosplayer for Blizzard – the game publishing company that created the popular World of Warcraft game – which means that she is often at their conventions dressed up as one of the characters from one of their games (she’s even dressed up as Kerrigan from Star Craft)! For Kerrigan she had to go online and find thick dreadlocks. At first she considered just wigs but soon enough she discovered that you can actually buy real human hair.
It’s kind of amazing that there are people out there growing, harvesting and selling their online but hey, I’m not one to judge. I think it’s kind of cool to be able to earn some extra cash on the side by selling hair. I mean, it’s basically the perfect resource – not that you could ever totally depend upon it as an income since it takes so long to grow – but for the most part it’s always going to be growing back! So, Amy decided that if she wanted to really impress the crowd with her cosplay she was going to have to go above and beyond.
Thankfully Blizzard foots some of the cost for her cosplay. That’s how cosplayers become popular and how they inevitably end up being able to afford their costumes. The companies that sponsor then offer them the money out of trust of their costuming abilities on top of their popularity. Often enough people will attend cons just to see the cosplay contests and come to see their favorite cosplayers in the flesh. It’s a lot of fun if you’re into the whole cosplay scene and I suggest everyone should do it at least once.
