Hello~

I want to cosplay America from Hetalia: Axis Powers. Here's a picture: http://dokimasu.files.wordpress.com/2009/08/hetalia_america.jpg
Now I have a blonde wig that I used for Honey from Ouran High School Host Club: http://images.absoluteanime.com/ouran_high_school_host_club/mitsukuni.jpg
Do you guys think I could use the same wig? Because I do not have the $$ to buy a new one at this point.

Certainly looks close enough to me. And hey, if you don't have the money, you don't have the money. That's okay.

I think it would be perfect! all you need a small wired nantucket and a bit of styling (:
Don't worry about money.... I dont have all that much either because Im not allowed to have a job yet!!! But cosplaying is cosplaying. Doesn't matter!!!

My America actually uses the same wig we use for Tamaki. I think your Honey one would definitely work. Either you could get matching wefts and make a wire ahoge, or you could simply style a piece of it sticking up. That's what we did. I just took a small hair, and stuck it up with hairspray. It wored quite well! Here's a picture to demonstrate:

america's hair color is more of a sandblonde but honestly any blonde works :) go for it.

A picture of the actual wig would be helpful ^^;

AS far as shades are concerned, at times, it's best to go with the shade the looks best with your skintone and complexion, even if it is a bit inaccurate. It will help you look far more natural as the character!

That being said, yes, a photo of the wig itself would be helpful.
