Now that I think of it I could buy a burgundy punky-style like wig; like the Scruffy wig from cosplay.com (I actually have that wig but in Teal Mix) from Epic since theirs is the color that I need, and it looks the same except the Scruffy from here has more lift and buy yellow bangs from Arda and put them on to the side like how it looks on him and spike them. Or buy yellow extensions from them and cut them to look like bangs. Since he doesn't really have bangs anyway, basically the whole thing would be spiked. Hopefully that would work...I think maybe it would.
I always prefer pre-styled, but of course I wouldn't mind putting in the work to make my wig look good.
I'm planning to wear my cosplay for the whole time i'm at the con
Also, I see what you mean about the little tips about the wigs from matchwigs and wigs from other sites are good to know for future reference.
