The Perfect Gift for a Cosplayer

Did you know that hair can be classified by a unique categorization method? I didn’t! I was idly browsing online looking for something to buy my sister who is really, really into cosplay. She’s been watching anime since she was a kid so it seems only natural that she would dress up as her favorite characters during Halloween which turned into a professional sort of cosplay thing that she does now. So in searching for something for her cosplay I stumbled onto this shop selling ‘4c natural hair’. Uh, what? At the time I couldn’t fathom what they were offering so I took a gander around the site and soon discovered a whole new world.

It doesn’t surprise me too much and I get a real kick out of finding this sort of ‘technical’ aspect of a hobby. Every hobby, every profession and every interest is going to have a technical side to it. This technical facet is usually spoken in a different language – a whole new context for words used to describe the minute traits of the hobby or what have you. Apparently they categorize hair by types: wavy, curly, kinky curly, very curly, straight, oily, silky and so on and so on.

It’s all very neat and precise. Knowing that my sister is always trying to make her costumes as realistic looking as possible I bought her multiple colors of each hair type for Christmas. What’s even more neat is that the wigs are made from actual human hair! No more faux wigs for her – she’s going to look amazing for her cosplay and the wigs will help her save all kinds of money that she might otherwise be forced to spend on a hair cut for a specific cosplay. Of course, if she’s really into the idea she’ll do her hair but for the most part I’ve only seen her wigs. I can’t wait to see the look on her face when she gets my gift.
