I'm going be cosplaying Ariel in about a month (fufufu, last minute much?) so I don't have very much time to look for a good, not too expensive wig. So I searched ebay and came up with this (http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&ssPageName=STRK:MEWAX:IT&item=180342807817) and this (http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&ssPageName=STRK:MEWAX:IT&item=280364287758). Which to me are a steal for how long they are O.o However I'm worried about A) if the sellers' products are true to their word/pictures B) if I'd be able to pull off Ariel's bangs and C) if I'd be able to pull the hair back into this style (http://imagecache5.art.com/p/LRG/8/838/36YY000Z/kiss-the-girl.jpg).
Help would be appreciated ^-^;

I would NOT buy either of those wigs if you need it in a month. The wig will have to go through customs, and you might not get it in time. I ordered a watch from China once, and it got rejected from customs and they would have had to re-send it - it was $10, so I just bought a $10 one from the US instead. :/

I think you could just leave the bangs as-is. If you wanted more, you could get matching wefts.

I would check out the thread with people posting examples of wigs for examples of the colours. The Red, Dark Red or Henna Red maybe, or the Auburn for a more natural look.


If you look on eBay, I would look for "North America" or "US" sellers only.

Seconded. Cosworx' shipping is usually very quick.

I definitely echo other people's suggestions of buying from a US company. Sometimes items come from China in a week, but other times it can take 2 months. Not something you want to gamble with.

For my Ariel wig I found it helped to have a wig that was bangless to achieve her 1980's styled bangs.
