most cosplayers use wig adding up to their character..much prefer it rather than cutting their hair or dying it to make it like the character they're portraying

I bought a blue wig I turned it into a cosplay wig and it’s synthetic. Depends if the wig is heat resistant. Is it kanekalon and Elora fiber? Both of those are common cosplay wig fibers and are. Heat resistance depends on the wig. I have one that is 180 degrees and another that is 240 degrees. That's the limit I can heat the wig until it will be warped.
Of course always start with a low temp and flat iron or curl an hidden part of the wig until you find the perfect temp you can do all the way around.
