Hello everybody, I'm planning to cosplay China for next Lucca Comics, but I have a little problem with the wig. I can't find a suitable wig nowhere. I have found this one on eBay today:

http://cgi.ebay.it/Cheap-Axis-Power-Hetalia-Wang-Yao-Cosplay-Wig-W1702-/250756760557?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item3a624483ed

But this wig isn't brown and all China wigs in the net have the same color, black. So I don't know what to do. Maybe do I need to find a long straight brown wig and style it by myself ? But I don't know which one is the best :(

Can you guys help me ?? Maybe just link the one you thing is the best.

Sorry for my bad english :(

I think a black wig works just fine for China. And now that you mention it, I do not recall seeing a China cosplayer using a brown wig before ahaha.
I'm not too sure about styling a wig (I kinda fail at it orz), it might be rather tricky.
But it's up to you, really. c:

China's hair IS black. At least, in all the manga, webcomic, etc reference. In the anime, its made to be a dark brown (so he wouldn't have the same hair color as Japan, seeing as thats taboo or something to have in anime). But, since the anime isn't canon, most people pick his canon hair color.

If you're really set on him having brown hair, though, I suggest this wig (http://www.epiccosplay.com/18-dark-brown-long-cosplay-wig.html) and then styling the bangs correctly yourself, as well as putting it into a low ponytail.

Thank you for the advice :D I have never seen the manga and the webcomic so I asked for a suggestion :) Well if in the manga China has black hair I will find a black wig :D And I think i will watch some scan from the manga just to get an idea about the original opera :)
Thank you again ^^

Black-brown both works for me, but I wouldn't suggest jet black. I cosplayed China with my real hair, I told my mom to cut the side-bangs just like his, and I grew my hair long actually to cosplay a he. I highlighted my hair so it's not too dark, it seems to be more suitable.
Let me tell you that that wig is not worth it x'D I've seen the exact same one from the original seller on taobao for less than $10 US dollars. For me, just a medium length dark brown (to black) wig would be fine, put it in a low ponytail and style his bangs, they're pretty easy to style as long as you know how to layer (buy one of those layering scissors :D). I wish you luck! ^^
