Behind the Style: AU Deidara Cosplay Wig
The wig that featured cosplayer SanDrey obtained to complete this cosplay began as the Athena wig from right here at EpicCosplay. Athena is a super long straight wig that measures 40 inches to the tips. The bangs hang low to a versatile 15 inches – leaving plenty of room to trim or modify as needed.
The notably lengthy bangs really came in handy for this character concept. In the anime and manga, Deidara’s long bangs are a prominent feature. This AU Deidara cosplay lengthened the hairstyle overall, making great use of that extra bang length to maintain a recognizable profile.
Another important addition is the matching ponytail wrap, also available from EpicCosplay. EpicCosplay offers a range of individual extension wefts and ponytail clips to make big modifications like this one so much easier.
This look uses the Natural Blonde version of Athena. You can also find this wig in a variety of other blonde shades to match your own Deidara cosplay. You might find Blonde Mix to be a good option for a lifelike look. Or, consider the Rich Butterscotch Blonde for a vibrant anime yellow.
