Why do we dress up in scary costumes for Halloween?
About 2000 years ago, The Celts believed that the night before the new year, on October 31, the boundaries of the living world and the world of the dead blur (imagine that being real).
To ward off the ghosts of the dead, they built huge bonfires and dressed up in scary costumes. And we wish we could say that it would help us scare the virus that has made a home out of our planet. We know that’s silly, but one can always be wishful!
There’s no way we would celebrate Halloween tucked in our beds, scared of the virus. This Halloween is so special. It’s going to be a full moon, which will also be a blue moon (second full moon to occur in a single month)! So spooky, right?
How can one not be excited about that?
To make this festival more memorable (not that anyone is going to forget celebrating Halloween in a pandemic), we have picked out some of the best Halloween wigs.
1. Cousin Itt Addams Family Creature Wig
The hirsute Cousin Itt! You can create one of the most bizarre characters’ costume and all you need for it is the Cousin it wig from Nunique. Because honestly, isn’t that the most essential piece of accessory for Cousin Itt?
The 66-inch floor-length hair, the bowler hat, and his signature rounded glasses can bring the furriest creature to life! Pair it with the high-pitch gibberish voice that only your family can understand, and you are sure to stand out and be the star of the virtual party (we are crossing our fingers that the party is very real and not virtual).
It’s a unisex costume and will fit all sizes. However, if you are shorter than our cousin, you can always trim the wig. It is easy to maintain with conditioner, olive oil-based sprays, or fabric softener.
A tip: Tread carefully, you wouldn’t want to trip, lost in the maze of your own hair!
2. Billie Eilish Women’s 26” Wig
Have you decided to look eccentric yet gorgeous for this Halloween? Go no further because you can create the Billie Eilish look effortlessly with this Nunique wig!
Even if you can’t have the magical Eilish voice, you can definitely have hair that can make you look like the pop star.
The lace front wig is available in a wide array of colors like green, azure, navy blue, rose red, yellow, and purple. So, it’s entirely on you which version of Billie Eilish you’d like to create.
3. Bob Ross 80’s Afro Wig
Haven’t we all grown up watching the Bob Ross show and dreamt of being a successful painter? And then somewhere along the line we grew up and realized that the world of paintbrushes and oils isn’t really for us.
And yet, the smiling face of Bob Ross is imprinted in our minds. So what if we can’t be painters like Bob Ross. We can surely look like him with his wig and mustache, right?
The chestnut brown curls that bounce around are perfect for bringing a chill vibe to the party. Pair it with a casual pair of jeans and tee, a paintbrush, and your brightest smile, and you’ll be the coolest teacher of the town.
It’s easy to maintain - wash it with a mild shampoo and cold water. Comb it for maximum volume and to keep it healthy.
I wonder why the Celts didn’t try smiling like Bob Ross to ward off evil. Don’t we all know kindness and happiness works like magic to scare away evil and darkness?
4. Men’s Joker Wig
If you cannot visit Gotham, bring Gotham home! What’s darker and more sinister than the Joker for Halloween? And if you have never tried to create the Joker look just because you don’t have the hair to make it seem authentic, then this wig is just for you!
The dirty green curly-haired wig will help you recreate the look, along with the iconic scary smile that can put all the children to sleep at once! Don’t forget to pair it with a sadistic sense of humor (just joking, you don’t want the party to end in chaos!).
The capless wig is appropriate for all head types - adults and kids alike. You can wash it with mild shampoo and cold water for easy maintenance. Since it is non-heat resistance, avoid using a straightener or curler.
5. Women’s Mythical Unicorn Wig with Horn and Ears
What’s fascinating about festivals is that they evolve with generations. What was once based on a superstitious belief is now a fun celebration with parties and amusing costumes.
If dressing up dark is not your thing or if you want to stand out in the crowd with a sweet, lively costume, the Unicorn Wig is just perfect. This capless wig is sure to lend you the a unicorn’s divinity with beautiful long waves in baby sky blue.
As little girls, we’ve dreamt of unicorns and mermaids. We love sunshine and rainbows. So, for this party, let’s bring our childhood memories to life and dress up just like how we want!
You can get the complete unicorn look with the Unicorn horn and ears. Amidst the bleakness of the horror costumes, you can sprinkle a bit of magic at the party. Stun your friends and stand out in the crowd!
What’s incredible about this festival is that you get to experiment and be someone different! You can be bold and unapologetic; you can play around with your makeup and hair, and be the weirdest version of yourself.
Freedom from normalcy is what makes Halloween astoundingly unique. So yeah, be different, throw out ‘normal’ from the window, be bold, and carry yourself in style! Nothing is normal in 2020, so why should your costume be?
Let’s create our ‘new normal’, shall we?
