Seph Wigs! Wigs, dye, props, accessories and more! Kigurumi prices now up!!
http://sephwigs.googlepages.com

Hi there everyone, thanks for stopping by! :3
As I'm sure a few of you already know, I run a worldwide commission service.
I started wig commissions to provide an excellent quality service to everyone for a very reasonable price. I work by my motto; great commissions for great prices. Just because you're working to a budget doesn't mean you can't still have a wonderful looking commission piece.

I use sellers that I have personally bought from myself and trust to use their products for my own costumes.

I mostly deal in wigs but do take a wide range of orders including:
Wigs (including styling such as widows peaks, odangos, high tails and spikes, dyeing and treatments for tangled and matted wigs)
Jewellery
Plushies
Hair accessories
Hats
Belts
Gloves
Tails, ears and paws
Wands
and some small armour.
If something you want isn't listed here then definitely still contact me and I'm sure I'll be able to help you. ^^

I also sell pre-mixed wig dye for those wanting to try their hand at doing it themselves. One 17oz/500ml bottle is enough to fully cover a 51inch wig or multiple short wigs. Custom colours can be mixed if you're looking for a specific colour and will be personally strand tested by myself before being sent to you. Bottles are available at $35 (around £15) each and come with the dye, a re-usable spray bottle, latex gloves and instructions on how to dye your wig.

I'm based in Bristol so if you're local and want to save on shipping I have no problem meeting up and sometimes have room to bring orders to a con too.
Styling prices start from as little as $20 (£15) and I also don't have a set number of commissions per month so there will nearly all be room for your order. Prices are agreed on before the order is placed and will not change unless extras are needed.
I do have cut off dates for orders and prefer to have 3 months notice though if you are UK based I will take orders up to 6 weeks before the event as a rush order.

I've got full details on placing an order as well as all my past work (which can be viewed in my profile here along with prices) on my website so please take a look.
I have over three years of experience in costume making, wig styling and have completed over 100 commissions to date, so what are you waiting for?
I hope to be hearing from you soon!

2010 EDIT:
After getting a good amount of interest, as of August 2010 I will be taking Kigurumi commissions for both adults and children. Base fabric will be polar fleece but can be made of another fabric if specified.
I'm currently working out prices but quotes will vary on size and the number of colours required. Example prices will be put online later in the year.
Examples of my current Kigurumi can be found on my profile here and more will be added throughout the year.

As mentioned over the weekend at Expo, I'm also possibly looking at making pre-sized pokemon kigus throughout the year which will be for sale either online or at expos and cons. More info on this will be coming later once I work out numbers and prices.

Edit again:
Kigurumi prices are now up on the site! These are an example only and will vary depending on your order. I won't be taking any orders for at least after May but feel free to ask for a quote now and get in early!

Just an update to let people know I'm now back taking orders (took a break for the wedding) and am taking orders for next year.
For people wanting orders for Expo now is the time to order, although I have a 3 month cut off the sooner I know you want an order the better. I was pretty busy last year with May and with final exams this year I want to make sure everything gets done in a good amount of time before May.

After a good amount of interest at Expo and online, as of August 2010 I will be taking commissions for Kigurumi!
These can be made in both adult and child sizes with optional extras such as removable boots and mittens, and will also include the option of just the top for those not wanting the full body.
I've not yet finalised prices but example prices will go up later in the year.
I'm happy to begin taking orders now and give quotes but I won't be fully open until after Amecon this year.

On the wig side of things I'm currently taking final orders for May. I will be taking a few rush orders on a case by case basis but I won't be offering many places. Although I'm currently fairly busy, as of August I will be going full time so will be taking more orders for then onwards.

Hey seph your wigs look amazing! I love how you make them. Wish I could lol. Was wondering if you had a change to have a go at the tio wig you said you were gonna do?

And I was also wondering if you could tell me the best way to style a wig for Aeris? I plan on doing her for a meet up in april and want to the wig to be perfect.

Thanks so much! ^^
Sadly I've not, was really looking forward to it too lol!

For Aeris you want to be looking at mostly heat styling it really as it's a very soft and light style. Some people like to use hair driers but I personally prefer to use hot water for any kind of styling like Aeris.
The biggest mistake I see people make with Aeris is the braid at the back. It's fully possible to do it with the accurate two piece twist but a lot of people just end up plaiting it. For the back braid, I would look at using a mixture of both heat and product. Twist it tighter than you actually want it then use hot water on it to mould the fibres. I would then give it just a light coat of either spray or putty (I used putty on mine as I dislike hair spray) just to give it extra hold. The front can be done with just hot water as it's a lot more light weight and won't need so much hold. The fringe it depends on how you want to do it. If you want to lift it then you can either back brush it or get the hair drier on it with a little product to keep it in place. Hopefully that helps a bit. ^^

oi liz, how much would a tododile one be, that would be hella cute lmao i can were it to urs and maybe your mom will forgive me for burning the floor then i can come finish nia lmao


23 Feb 2010 - 00:5127663
Lol I see what you're planning there, fool her with cuteness! A good plan indeed. Did you want fleece or a more lightweight fabric for summer? (The fleece is fairly warm to wear at cons)


23 Feb 2010 - 01:0127664
hmmm i guess fleece because im more cuddly then lmao


23 Feb 2010 - 17:2427700
Thanks Sephy I'll see what I can do with it and keep you updated.

Kigurumi prices!
Kigurumi prices vary depending on the order. I offer 3 kinds of Kigu; adult size made to fit people 5'5" and up, child size made to fit people 4'0" to 5'5" and half kigurumi that are a hoodie style top for all sizes.

The prices below give only an example of price for each order. Please always ask for an individual quote and not price it yourself. All example prices include material costs and commission fee, they do not include shipping prices. The three price ranges refer to the number of block colours used, small details such as extra colours for eyes, fangs etc are not included. E.g. Mew, while having blue and white for the eyes, has only one block colour (pink) so is classed as "simple".

Please note these prices are given in £GBP and not USD as I usually do. Please ask if you wish to have the price quoted in USD.
These prices are based on full sized kigurumi (the baggy kind seen in japan) made from fleece. I also offer jersey kigu which while not as thick are cheaper. Less baggy versions will also be cheaper.

Child Kigurumi:
Simple (one colour) = £40
Intermediate (2-3 colours) = £50
Detailed (4+ colours) = £70+

Adult Kigurumi:
Simple (one colour) = £45
Intermediate (2-3 colours) = £60
Detailed (4+ colours) = £80+

Half hoodie Kigurumi:
Simple (one colour) = £30
Intermediate (2-3 colours) = £40
Detailed (4+ colours) = £60+

Extras: (Made to order in individual sizes)
Booties = £10
Mittens = £5

That's not a problem hun! :3
I'll make sure I keep room to make yours, just let me know what you'd like. It doesn't even have to be an anime mascot, I do animals, original characters and kigu versions of regular characters too if there was someone specific you wanted. :3
They're amazingly warm! I use polar fleece for them so they're great to keep warm! Jack wears his almost every night lol. X3

Hey Seph, I was thinking, maybe if I cant get my tio wig sorted would you want to style it for me?

I'll let you know nearer the time though.

It would be a pleasure to! When were you going to do it for? I get fairly busy with commissions so I have a 3 month cut off though if you'll have the wig already then as long as it's not too close to the date it shouldn't be a problem to go past that. ^^


15 Mar 2010 - 15:2928452
Kitten want a Kigu!

Especially after seeing what you created for Expo - they were ace.
