Cosplay Advice, which wig is better?

I wanted to cosplay Anthy this year.  I don't want to do her normal pinned up hair do because I really think it would look weird on me. XD So I decided to go with her long hair.  Which wig do you think would be better for her?

http://i.ebayimg.com/13/!By-nqVgBmk~$(K … w~~_12.JPG or http://i.ebayimg.com/24/!Bl7qM!QB2k~$(K … g~~_12.JPG

I can't decide.  I like the color of the second one but it's not long enough.. and the first one might be too long. XD

Re: Cosplay Advice, which wig is better?

I'd go with the first one. The color isn't as deep no, but it has the bangs and the length, and length sooo important with Anthy. emot-wink


Akio, you have nice turns of phrase, but your points aren't clear and you have no textual support. I can't give this a passing grade.

Re: Cosplay Advice, which wig is better?

Thanks for the advice! emot-biggrin I was leaning towards that one, so that's the one I'll go with. n_n It seems like a very pretty wig.

Re: Cosplay Advice, which wig is better?

I, too, plan to cosplay as Anthy sometime soon. I didn't want to do the pinned up hair style either. emot-tongue Movie!Anthy is the costume I chose to go with. I wish you luck with your cosplay and I hope you'll post pics! etc-love

Re: Cosplay Advice, which wig is better?

That's great!  Movie Anthy has a costume that seems like it would be fun to cosplay! Good luck to you too. emot-biggrin etc-love I'll post some pictures when I'm done if the costume doesn't turn out too horribly. XD I just have to figure out how to make her crown and I'll be set.

Re: Cosplay Advice, which wig is better?

The second one would be perfect if it was as long as the first one, so go for the first one.

Re: Cosplay Advice, which wig is better?

I would go with the first one, I always buy my wigs a little longer than I need since you can cut them to get the perfect length. I canít wait for pictures. emot-smile

First one.

It's *beautiful* and very Anthy-like.
Good luck with your cosplay, and please post some pictures when your outfit's ready? :3

Re: Cosplay Advice, which wig is better?

Well, here's a picture of me dressed up like Anthy. XD Don't be too hard on me, I'm pretty self conscious!  http://a4.sphotos.ak.fbcdn.net/hphotos- … 3079_n.jpg

Unfortunately I didn't get a good picture of the actual dress.  I didn't take any pictures of myself because a lot of people took a picture of me so I figured I'd just be lazy and get one from another gallery.. but no one posted pictures of me. XD You can see it from a distance (and my terrible shameful lack of dancing skills) here though http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=O6Hd3QM42_w

OH MY GOD That was you?! I came up to you in the food court (I was dressed up as femme Gaston from Beauty and the Beast, and I was sick so I had a really crackly voice) and said that I loved your Anthy but I didn't bring my camera to take a picture.

Aw, I like hugs, so it wouldn't have been creepy at all. emot-smile

I'll try to make it to Anime Punch, but I'm usually too busy around that time. T_T So hopefully I can go!
