I'm putting together a Matt cosplay, and I decided to go with an Airily wig after hearing good things about the wig line. I'm having a hard time picking a color, though (I'm doing the red hair version of Matt.) Since there aren't any official color references, I looked at fanart, etc., and came up with three possibilities:

Akagane Copper/Rusty Orange
Brick Red
Wine Red

Opinions? If you've cosplayed this version of Matt, what wig did you use?

I actually use the Wisp wig in Firestorm, although Henna Red seems to work.

I'm actually leaning towards the wine red color now. I think. Akagane Copper is a little too orange, and Brick Red is a little too fire-engine red. alicehana, did your friend use an Airily wig, or a similar color from a different line? And would he be okay with you posting a photo or two? I want to see the wig in action! :)

About the Wisp: I know lots of people use that, but I want to try an Airily wig. I hear they're great, and I guess I'm just excited about the new wig lines?

Then be my guest :D

Tell us how the wig turns out. I'd love to see it in action.

So I'm starting to think I should get a Wolf Base in Wine Red (will be styling it.) Opinions? Do you think it'll look good, or do you think I'll end up with a too-purple monstrosity?
I think I want that kind of purplish-red color you see in some fanart.

I was going to go with the Angel Bob style at first, but I looked at some pictures of Matt from the manga and anime, and I think his hair is a little bit... messier than that. I think it might be easier to make a Wolf Base a little less crazy than it would be to get that messy style with an Angel Bob.

I just might have a problem with obsessing over wigs.

Wine Red looks like the best color.

I think you're right. I should probably stop obsessing and just get the wig. I don't need it right away since I probably won't be able to finish the outfit in time for my next con, so if the color doesn't work, I guess I could always sell the wig and get another one in a different color?
I'll post photos when I get the wig.
