Hi, I'm Fire. ^^ First of all, I'd like to say I'm very new to cosplaying (I just finished my first cosplay, and my first con was this weekend.), and I'm brand new to this forum. :3 So hi! I'm looking forward to getting to know you all.

Anywho, let's stop this off-topic introducing, and onto what I made this forum for. :toothy:

I am going to my second con, and it will be my first time staying for a full three days. That being said, I'm going to need three cosplays that I don't exactly have at the moment. ^^; So, I decided on who I want to be with my friend (we'll be going in partners), and I need help on deciding which wigs to use.

The three characters I am being (along with my friend's cosplay character) are as follows:

Remilia Scarlet (my friend as Flandre Scarlet) from Touhou Project, Hōjō Satoko (my friend as Furude Rika) from Higurashi No Naku Koro Ni, and Ahiru in her school uniform, not her Princess Tutu form, (my friend as Uzura) from Princess Tutu.

So, I need help on deciding which wigs to use. I am willing to style wigs, though I'm not extremely good at it, and cutting and dying is kinda out of the picture, because I'm still a noob, and I have no idea how and I don't want to ruin a wig. XD I don't have enough time to ruin a wig. XD

I'm going to list possible wigs, but you can always suggest other wigs. ^^ Any advice would be greatly appreciated as well. :3 My budget is around $40 and under for each wig, but I'd like to stay on the lower side of that price range. XD Anywho, the options:

Ermergawsh ;o; Touhou and Higurashi!!!
Can we be bests 5ever?

Anywhore - For wigs , I PERSONALLY would never choose Amazon or Ebay. Usually they're wigs are very… Well , crappy. Not all the time but from my experience, they are. I'm currently planning on a Remilia cosplay -- and I can tell you that Arda-Wigs is your best choice. If Arda-wigs is too expensive or just not what you're looking for - Epiccosplay is a good place too. For Remilia's wig , it looks good.

For Satoko , You could do http://www.epiccosplay.com/12-rich-butterscotch-straight-short-cosplay-wig.html and cut off the bangs a bit. Or if the color is a bit bright, try http://www.epiccosplay.com/aphrodite-15-butterscotch-blonde-layered-short-cosplay-wig.html
and cut it a bit.
