I am thinking about cosplaying Ibuki from Street Fighter 3. Her costume is fairly straight forward and I will have no trouble with that. However, her hair is... crazy to say the least. XD;;

I have been trying to think of a way to go about making her hair while still keeping it somewhat natural looking. I think I have ruled out doing a wig due to the funky look the hairline would have. Another option I have considered is using hair extensions along with my own naturally brown hair. Similar to this:

The three spiked strands in front would be extensions connected to/hidden by the headband/bandanna. Then the back ponytail.... I am still hazy on how to go about doing that portion. I do not know if I should go about wrapping my hair with the khaki colored cloth then have a long hair extension come out the top (of course, I would most likely forget about spiking the hair if I used this method - it would be hard enough to do with unstyled extensions). To conclude, does anyone have any suggestion on how to construct her hair whether it be by a wig or extensions?
