Okay, so I'm going to be doing a Tsubaki cosplay for AI This year, and I"m having a bit of trouble deciding which wig to get for Tsubaki. I found one on Cosplay.com shopping, but I'm not sure that it's quite long enough. Your opinion on this would be extremely helpful, fellow forum members.

Below is the link of the costume, and one of the wig i"m considering.

I'm not a wig expert, but I can tell you right now. You do NOT want to go that route to do a high long ponytail. Here's the deal with those.

You don't want to get a long wig. They're heavy to begin with and putting it up in a ponytail is extremely difficult and they're much more difficult to take care of. Plus long wigs don't have a lot of fiber on the bottom to reduce bulk, which translates poorly to up-dos.

What I would suggest would be to get a base wig. Something of medium length that you can pull into a short ponytail (aka: stub). When you stub it, you can then attach an extention/fall to the stub to make the ponytail. That way you can easily remove the ponytail part to brush it out or similarly take care of it. Plus the rest of the wig will sit much nicer pulled back since you won't need to fuss with it after getting it together. This could also solve your question about length...since you know for a fact that the length of the fall you get is the length of the ponytail.
