Minoru Mineta Cosplay Wig Styling
One of the features that makes this cosplay so recognizable is the wig, styled to look like Grape Boy’s distinctive ball-shaped hair.
This design uses the Hestia wig from Epic Cosplay as a base. The color, Purple Black Fusion, proved to be an excellent match for the character. This wig measures at 22” in length, pre-curled to fall below the shoulders on most wearers. The bangs reach 4” long. This wig styling process utilized that extra length to create tight curls at the forehead.
In the series, Mineta’s superhero quirk is “Pop Off”. This ability lets him grow super sticky hairballs that he can remove and throw at will. While this ability is often mocked as one of the most useless, underestimating it would be a mistake. Mineta has used these adhesive spheres in smart ways – building traps, scaling walls, and more.
To create the spheres, matching 15” weft extensions from Epic Cosplay were styled into orbs and securely attached. Many cosplayers make similar buns by laying wefts over a core of foam. Normally that foam would fit over a stubbed ponytail, but for long styles like this, it is more common to clip or glue the foam to the wig foundation directly. Epic Cosplay also sells convenient clip-in buns in the Purple Black Fusion colorway.
