Red Haired Anime Characters!

Okay, so I ordered a wig and it was supposed to be a Dark Tangerineish color (Aka: Orange) but when I got it today, it's a kind of cranberry red...
Like the kind of red when someone bleaches their hair and takes Red RED dye, or hair color red, and dyes their hair... That color...

But anyways, I want to get my money's worth and I don't want to dye it or anything so... I wanna know what characters have short red hair that can go with this style of wig. *since their images are better than mine...*

Here are images of the wig in person... The front doesn't look the same color in the photos as in real life but the back and side look exactly how they do. So for color look to them.
Front - Back - Side


- Gaara *with trimming* [Naruto]
- Sasori [Naruto]
- Female Ranma *With braid* [Ranma 1/2]
- Matt [Death Note]
- Hikaru *With Braid* [Magic Knight Rayearth]
- Kallen *With styling* [Code Geass]
- Riza/Liza *With trimming/styling* [Princess Resurection]

You could try Gaara, from Naruto.

Sasori might work too. Hes from Naruto aswell.

Akasuna no Sasori from Naruto? 8D; The hair is really similar to his, you'd only need to do a little trimming at the ends.

There's also Gaara from Naruto, who is another guy with red hair. XD; But his hair is a lot shorter and would need more trimming.

Edit - Wordless beat me to it. XD

XP Duh! I should have thought of them...
Thanks!

Anyone else got any ideas pour moi?
I would prefer female as with my body it will be very hard to do males unless they are wearing VERY baggy clothing.
I could do Sasori because of the cloak but probably not Gaara unless I do a female version.

Word, I'm in the same boat as you, finding short-red-haired girls is tough.

If you add a rat tail or some extensions, it could pass as a female Ranma from Ranma 1/2. http://www.hcs.harvard.edu/~alhuang/ranma/vjac-083.gif

I've also found Joey, I think her name is, from Tokyo Mew Mew http://www.absoluteanime.com/tokyo_mew_mew/zoey.gif

And then there's this giant list with a ton of female, red-headed characters on it, not all with short hair though: http://members.aol.com/animepet/r_h_g.html

Fritzy: That's Mew Ichigo from Tokyo Mew Mew ) Though her hair is hot pink or burgandy depending on the version... English 4kids version named her "Zoey" *shudders*

Kisitiene, I was actually planning on buying that exact wig (I have experience with Peri... 90% of their wigs are darker than photographed) for a slightly more realistic Daisuke Niwa from DNAngel. If you can't find a use for it, I'd be interested in buying it from you

That would make a good wig for the fan version of Matt from Death Note.
It would hardly need to be styled.
(Trying to find a good ref picture.. D: )

Thanks Fritzy! But yeah, Ichigo has more of a darker red hair than what my wig is. If I can find my camera I'll take a picture and put up what it looks like for color ref but I lost it last month when "cleaning" my room...

Phantom - I wish I had experience with them. >.< A friend of mine recomended them and said their wigs were really comfertable. Because the last wig I bought, which was for my Misa outfit, is really itchy and it bugs the crap out of me. So she said to shop from Peri...Not telling me that the colors are different in person. D8
But I'll keep you in mind if I can't think of anything! ^^ I haven't worn it yet because it's not the right color so it's been sitting on one of my foam heads... So no worries about any of that kind of stuff.

Thanks Everlasted! But no reference image really needed. I know what Matt looks like. I'm an avid Death Note Fan. ^^ Just a lot of males don't cross my mind when looking for cosplays.

Death Note = love.

I'm cosplaying Matt (<3), so if you decide to cosplay him, I can help you if I can. =)

^^ Awesome! It might be a bit hard for me due to being very endowed. (Me - 36D) So I will be a very feminine Matt. XD
I don't know how that would work out but yeah... ^^;

Being very big in the chest(haha, nice word choices) you might not like it at all, but binding keeps the boobs down.

If you look in the crossplay forums they have methods for all sizes. You won't get completely flat with D, but thats alright.

I can't think of any other short red head girls, so crossplay might be the best choice. Matt would be perfect like others have said if you do crossplay.

If you cut it, you could do Dextera,

Thank you for the suggestion but binding is near imposible for me even if done properly. I get very low on breath even just laying on my chest so I always have to prop myself up if I'm on my stomach. So binding is totally out of the question for me. >.<
I do drama at my school and our Costume designer and our Director both told me that when I do these things to not bind my chest because I'll pass out from lack of air.

But I am going to try to buy some smaller sports bras (Like a C for starters...) and maybe try to see how those will work in trying to flatten out a bit so I don't just pass out and maybe try to get used to it before trying to just tie them off and all that...ungood...stuff. XP

But thank you for the suggestion! I'll have to work on trying to get my chest flater to be able to crossplay as I know I will probably want to play a guy in the future.

don't know if i or some one else has said it but, Shana from Shakugan No Shana has long red hair, and some guy from bleach has spiky hair(sorry, don't his name), and umm....can't think anymore.

*Goes back to warming very cold num hands*

His name is Renji and thanks for the suggestions, but the wig is short. There are images of it in the first post.

If you add a clip-on braid or an extension in a braid it can be Hikaru from Magic Knight Rayearth. Well Hikaru's hair is a little pinkish...but red is a little more natural..sorta. Hope this is a good suggestion. ^.^
