Would you like to take one of our wigs for a test drive? Maybe you want a really great wig for an event but you don’t think you’ll use it often enough to justify the purchase, you just want something special for a photo shoot. Our Rentals Program is ideal for weekend conventions and events.
This is a new program for us, so we’re starting small and building up our stock. If we have a wig that will work for your character, then we’ll check the availability for you. If your wig is something that we want to add to our rental stock, then we’ll create it and rent it to you if time permits.
It’s best to reserve your rental early, as availability will be limited, especially for larger events. Use the form at the bottom of the page if you have a something in mind. See our FAQ below for answers to the most common questions about renting a wig.
How will this work? How long do I get to keep the wig? What does it cost to rent a wig? Those are all great questions – here are some answers.
To be honest, this is a new venture for us, and we’ll be working over the next 3 years to build the program and grow the stock. Eventually, we’ll have every piece in our rental stock photographed and you’ll be able to see what we have and if it’s available. For now, use the form below to tell us with WHAT you need, WHEN you need it and WHERE you need it. We’ll let you know if the piece, the place and the times are going to work out. Please note that rentals will only be available in the continental US.
How long you get to keep the wig is up to you, however, the longer you keep it, the larger the rental fee. Our standard rental period is eight days, starting on the day we ship the piece to you, and ending the day you put it in the mail and send us the tracking number. That covers most weekend events, with a bit of time to spare. The current rental fee per wig is $60 with a shipping, handling and cleaning fee of $20. There’s no credit for returning the wig early, or for not using the wig. Like renting a car, you have use of the wig for the allotted period of time, whether you wear it once, twice or never.
If you’re going to be at one of the Events we’re attending, you can arrange to pick your wig up from us.
A few more things –
A note about cleaning and hygiene. This is a very important concern – all of the wigs are cleaned and sanitized after every use. The cleaning fee assessed on each rental covers this cost to ensure a safe and sanitary experience for everyone. Renting wigs and costumes is very common in theatre, which is where we got our start in wigs, so while this is a new idea in the world of cosplay and reenactment, it’s a common way of hiring in high quality or bespoke pieces for short term needs.
This rental program is intended primarily for cosplayers and historical re-enactors/interpreters, and is structured as such. For long term rentals, seasonal rentals, or multi-piece rentals, contact us, as those will fall under a different set of guidelines and contracts.
If you like the wig you rent so much that you decide you want one of your very own, we’ll credit the cost of your rental towards the cost of the commission within 90 days of the rental.
