EW's Definitive Guide to the Best Wigs of Wet Hot American Summer

I’d argue that all the actors have never looked better, including their last time at Camp Firewood. The wardrobe and hair for the first movie were recreated with precise detail; Katie still has her pink sweatshirt, and Victor only wears muscle shirts that show off his nipples. However, the wig budget on this film was pretty high. Not since Key & Peele have wigs played such an important role in characters’ aesthetics. I suppose with wig technology these days, it was easier than trying to convince 40-something actors to cut their hair into the original styles.

Here, I present a definitive list of the best (and the not-so-great) wigs.

The business end of Twin. In charge of landing interesting new projects, making clients happy, and coffee. A maker of beautiful music and master of oral sound effects. A secret Jim Henson nerd. Will always find ways of working smarter. Will never participate in karaoke.
