Iron Wig Live Anime North 2019
Posted on 08 May 2019
Arda Wigs Canada is returning to ANIME NORTH with Iron Wig Live!
We're bringing your favourite wig styling competition back to the stage at Anime North. Located at the Toronto Congress Centre, May 24-26th, 2019.
The competition will take place on Sunday May 26th, from 12:00pm (Noon)- 2:30pm, Munro 1 room in the Toronto Congress Centre.
How it Works:
Eight (8) contestants will have two (2) hours to construct a styled wig using the products provided, following a pre-determined theme. The competition will then be judged by a panel of experienced wig stylists/cosplayers (TBA) and will be hosted by Master cosplayer and Arda Wigmancer, Ali Mahou!
*In the event that a contestant does not arrive on time, a volunteer wild card will be chosen from the audience to compete!
Theme: "Momiji's New Do!" It's time to give Anime North's beloved mascot a new exciting hairstyle! Is she going to the Ball? Showing her spirit? You decide!

Contestants will have a selection of styling supplies to use including heat styling tools, Got2B Glued Blasting Freeze Spray, a foam head, a table clamp wig stand, wefting supplies, scissors, bobby pins, and alligator clips. Each contestant will receive the same wig and section of weft to construct their style.
*Contestants are welcome to bring extra hair clips for the sole purpose of holding hair which cannot be used in the final style.
There will also be a ~MYSTERY GRAB TABLE~ where contestants will have 30 seconds to grab up to three (3) miscellaneous items to use in their final style!
Just for competing, all contestants get to take home their newly styled wig and the foam head. New this year: Audience Choice!
