MWS won’t physically be at New York Comic Con this year but one of our very special clients, Hero Hair will be. We recently sat down with founder and head wig designer-fabricator Erin Kennedy Lunsford (IATSE 798) and co-founder and creative director Travis Cowsill. We talked with them about how they started their company and what keeps them passionate about Cosplay wig making.
Hero Hair, The REEL wig experience, is the world’s first and ONLY custom cosplay wig company run by established entertainment industry wig masters & hair artisans. They are devoted solely to the art of custom cosplay wig creation. Their team creates one of a kind pieces to transform their Cosplay clients into characters from any genre. Inspiration comes from movies, television, comics, and even original concepts.
Their hand-fabricated wigs and facial hair applications are state of the art. They use the most advanced, cutting-edge design applications, methodologies and materials currently available. They pride themselves on producing (HD) quality, screen accurate feature film-grade lace front custom cosplay wigs. However, their expertise does not stop with wigs. They also fabricate facial hair (full beards/ chops/ mustaches/ etc.).
You can find Hero Hair on the main floor at this year’s New York Comic Con. The show runs October 3rd through 6th at the Javitt’s Center.
While MWS won’t have a booth this year we still carry an extensive supply of materials from worbla, foam, paints, and patterns to makeup and hair supplies, to get you ready for your amazing Comic Con experience. We are just a few blocks from the venue so stop by before you go for last-minute supplies.
