Alright so, as it stands I /do/ have a France wig, and it does a good job for what it is. I got it at AX '10 at the Arda wigs booth, mostly because through the entirety of the con and the days before my friends had been talking about a group cosplay we could do - and lo and behold there's three of us and we're perverts! - so the BTT was decided and I was labeled France because I'm the middle skin tone one and "have a cute nose". I had the monies, it looked good at the time and I'm a horrible impulse buyer. I have many things I regret buying in my life cause I never use them OTL So now, several months later, with more experience under my belt and costume made my OCD for details is kicking in. It's a bit too yellow, and I can't make it wavy for the life of me and for fear of ruining the wig...

My current wig (http://kingdom-arts.org/arda-wigs/magnum%20long%20013%20light%20blonde.jpg).

What I want to do now is get a new wig for France. And I have two different ones I want: a regular cosplay one and a longer one I can pull into a pony tail for Historical France (100 years war and such), Waiter France, Fem France and Lestat De Lioncourt (vampire chronicles). ATM I'm a poor high school senior who's trying to plan one too many things that I'll ever have money for. Thank god for selling plushies, wire working necklaces and old anime stuff...

So, I need to make a choice on which one I'll get first - regular or longer. Regular of course would be useful for my WWII uniform, casual, etc. Hell I may even be able to find an extension that would work if I just got the regular wig. The longer one though... I am starting to design my own Fem France outfit, have Lestat done and have plans for a video that I may need that darn ponytail for as 100 years war France.

Here are my choices so far (other suggestions are love but Im trying not to spend over 25 USD including shipping)
1 Regular France #1 (http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=320664275669&ssPageName=STRK:MEWAX:IT#ht_6997wt_925)
2 Regular France #2 (http://cgi.ebay.com/Axis-Powers-Hetalia-France-Short-wig-Cosplay-/270718605782?pt=US_CSA_MWA_Wigs_Extensions&hash=item3f081619d6#ht_3123wt_901)
3 Longer Wig - would trim a bit as well once got #1 (http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=220716496639&ssPageName=STRK:MEWAX:IT#ht_5531wt_901)
4 Longer Wig - would trim and try and make it wavy #2 (http://cgi.ebay.com/Fashion-Party-Hair-Piece-Long-Blonde-Hairpiece-Full-Wig-/150576377026?pt=US_CSA_MWA_Wigs_Extensions&hash=item230f0d2cc2#ht_3440wt_905)

If suggesting I prefer to not Bid, cause I'm cheap and poor like that @w@; Merci beaucoup in advance~!

Well, I highly suggest this wig: http://cgi.ebay.com/Hetalia-Axis-powers-France-cosplay-wig-/250782734532?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item3a63d0d8c4#ht_2266wt_905 Its the one I'm getting, and while I don't have that wig specifically, my Italy wig is from them. And its lovely in every single way~

If you're set on spending minimal, though, out of your wig choices I'd go for the first one for France. Its a bit short, but... I dunno,

And for the longer wigs... When do you plan on this cosplay? As I ordered the first of the second two wigs earlier today for my fem!Canada, so if you don't plan on buying the wigs for awhile, you can wait til mine arrives and I can tell you its quality.

If I had a job I totally wouldn't hesitate -looks sadly at the 50 in my account- dammit conjiiiiiii

Yeah, much better than my current one at least... lighter and with the waves I want ene;;;

Well I want to have the video done by the end of may, and we're gonna try and start filming sometime in mid to the end of april ish. So about a 3 week leeway before I need to order. Telling me the quality would be so darn amazing you done even know <3 whysoawesomehun?

If i had more than $30 in my bank account, I'd do it too x___x;;

Well, its due to arrive the first week of April, so if you can wait, I can show you the wig then :3 Though I personally don't think it'll work too well for France, as his hair is a lighter blonde and not the golden color I chose it for.

Ffffff people on FB and Skype certainly aren't helping. They're encouraging me to get it. Though I am getting like 30 for a rush dress commission (assuming the damn chick brings me the fabric today e~e;) so i just may end up splurging for that one...
