Hello, I am planning on making this wig in the future link (http://static.minitokyo.net/downloads/49/25/533799.jpg)

i was planning on buying 2 wigs, one for the base and one for the hair fans. What I am wondering is about the wefting on the base wig.

I found this wig (http://www.ebay.com/itm/290824658776?ssPageName=STRK:MEWAX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1438.l2649)

and think it would work really well for styling the bump that the chopsticks go into.

But then there are other cheaper options, like this (http://www.ebay.com/itm/251165908268?ssPageName=STRK:MEWAX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1438.l2649)

but im not sure how i would be able to style it, or i was thinking adding more wefts for that bump, but im not too sure if it would look ok...


anyways, any help/recommendations would be very beneficial to me!

I think that your idea will work. The hair fans might need a separate hairpiece/wig to get that large, flat shape. As for the hana kanzashi (hair ornaments), it might be expensive to 4 separate pieces in three colors. You could combine real kanzashi (for example, something like https://www.etsy.com/listing/126545129/hand-painted-purple-plum-blossoms-105 with fabric flowers for a more authentic look. I think the accessories will be an important part in bringing out the beauty of the wig.

thanks, but what do you think about the 2 different wigs? i would rather buy the cheaper one, but i am thinking the more expensive one will just be so much easier to work with
