 Shop.Cosplay Color Ring swatches done in natural indirect light for as much colour accuracy as the camera and computer can muster.

OR01, OR02, and OR01

OR01 Peach: Mix of ash blonde an pale pink strands, there is no a drop of orange in this swatch. It's a paler shade in person and look more pink then orange.

OR02 Classic Orange: Mix of bright orange blended with blonde and pale pink strands.

OR01 Dark Orange: More of a classic "pumpkin" shade. A mix of Dark Orange, Classic Orange an yellow.

The wig shade blends are mostly Hiperlon based, with added Chilon and Henlon fibers. The Henlon fiber and maybe the Chilon give the finish in flash/daylight the glossy shine seen here as other 100% Hiperlon wigs I own is mostly matte finish.

Daylighht shoot direct light

Hiperlon based wigs don't take well to alcohol based dyes, I've tried twice as well and the dye would rub/wash off completely. From personal experience boiled fabric dye baths do work  to achive 40% of the original colour as a tint and others have had luck air brushing with Liquitex Liquid Acrylics. In the same vein you should be able to get the same results with FW acrylic inks but I have not tried this myself yet.

This award is given out for one the most rainbow collection of shade blend with out resorting to traditional neon shades. Their bold but don't make you eye melt or help to land plane. lol


  1. It's so hard to get colour accurate photos (trust me it's part of my job). LOL

  2. Thanks for posting all of this! I have been looking for photos of the color ring for ages. Bookmarked! ;)

  3. Some times you just don't have your ring on hand for reference even if you bought one. lol

  4. Thank you very much! It's my first time buying Hiperlon based wigs so this is very useful. Thanks again ^__^
