I've been planning a Yami Yugi cosplay for quite some time. Now that I can finally get around to doing it, I can't find an appropriate wig! DX

I saw on Ebay that there was a wig that would have been perfect! It was a black spiky punk wig with red tips. Sadly, it is now sold out. I have the yellow extensions for the bangs, but I need help finding a suitable wig!

If anyone can help, please do! Any useful information will be greatly appreciated!

Well, there are these two on Amphigory:

and

http://www.amphigory.com/wigs_a_rockstar.html

Trouble is, they'd both need trimming (not that big a deal though) and I'm not sure how well they'd spike up. The Rockstar one looks like it'd be better for the job, but it's hard to tell from a picture.

Then there's the New Punk one:
http://www.amphigory.com/wigs_s_new_punk.html. This one supposedly has a black/burgundy version, (If the design is similar to the dark blue/light blue wig I think it'd look awesome.) but I haven't seen a picture of what that color combo looks like. I think style-wise this is the best.

Good luck! And if you find a good one, let us other future Yami cosplayers know! ;)

I've always used the Angela 750 from cosworx in hot pink for both my own Yugi wig and the commissions I've done for both characters. I've colored the black in by hand and left enough of the pink to be colored over in berry (or magenta) Sharpie. Hair glue/hair spray and you're good to go.

You're not really going to find a base wig that's going to be exactly like the style to be honest with you.

I'd suggest to get a black Angela 750 from Cosworx. You'd need to add wefts.
Hang it upside down and hairspray to get the spikes easier.
You'd need to sew the yellow extensions in it, though, for the bangs,
and then you'd need to glue red extensions along the end.

A friend of mine made a Yami wig and it came out amazingly.
Here's a link to it; I'm sure there's questions about it in the comments:
