Okay, so I'm on a budget, this wig looks great...http://cgi.ebay.com/POSH-RED-TENGEN-TOPPA-GURREN-LAGANN-YOKO-COSPLAY-WIG-/270609781274?pt=US_CSA_MWA_Wigs_Extensions#ht_2687 wt_930

But since my dad found this one...http://cgi.ebay.com/Long-Straight-Red-Full-Hair-Wig-Party-Cosplay-80cm-31-/180544556047?pt=US_CSA_MWA_Wigs_Extensions#ht_3685 wt_806 I may be forced to style my own wig! (I'm really bad at it):sulk::blubber:

So some styling tips for the un-styled wig would be great! And if you can help me find a wig that's pre-styled for cheaper than the $32 one, that would be phenomenal, like I said, I'm on a rather tight budget.:angel:

Because your wig is all one not a pony id sedjest useing this http://www.pettingzoowigs.com/wigtutorial_parting.html to help u with the pony. and some g2b glued hair spray and the rest is cutting and styleing . always cut long then go short.

I don't have access to the extensions, and I'm really not good with that much styling (wefts), but good tutorial. Thanks

For a ponytail as long and thick as Yoko's it is a much better idea to get a shorter wig, stubb it, and then add the extensions. This way the weight is distributed more evenly on your head.

Honestly, the first wig you linked to is probably the better option for you if you can convince your Dad of it. To style a wig like Yoko's correctly would cost significantly more than 30 dollars.

If you do decide to try and style it, this tutorial is excellent: http://www.cosplay.com/photo/1856065/
