Get Ready Anime North- It's IRON WIG LIVE!
Posted on 02 May 2018
For the first time ever, Arda Wigs Canada is bringing Iron Wig to you LIVE before your very eyes during Anime North 2018!
We're excited to announce that we will be bringing this fantastic (and fun!) competition to Anime North, Canada's premier fan-run Anime convention! Located at the Toronto Congress Centre from May 25th-27th, 2018, 2:30pm-5pm.
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: "Trending in Tokyo!" Get inspired by Japanese street fashion! Harajuku? Decora? Lolita? J-Pop? Visual Kei? Pick your favourite, or combine these iconic styles to create something fresh!
Contestants will be have a selection of styling supplies to choose from 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 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!
