Tintin Wig

Hi! I am trying to find a wig for a Tintin cosplay that I'm putting together.

Here are some reference pics:

If anyone has any suggestions for a reasonably priced web-site, I would appreciate it!

My friend cosplays Tintin and has actually used two different wigs. The first one I only know to be one that cosplay.com no longer carries. The second one, however, is this one: http://thefivewits.net/2010/06/hey-h...a-geographica/ (she removed the spoink and used thinned tacky glue to style the front into Tintin's trademark curl).

This wig should also work. Still needs a bit of cutting on the sides and such, but the length in the bangs should be long enough

^ With either wig you will still need to crate a hairline as these with will expose the wig band on the wig base. You can do that by sewing a row of wefts on the underside of that band and style the wefts upwards or create a fake hairline.

Another option that just needs trimming ans styleing in pumpkin shade but has the correct hairline.

Also if you don't need this wig for six month Arda is making a shorter hair version of the Cady wig.

Thank you all for the feedback! I've purchased the hetalia wig that Mary suggested and my sister and I are going to attempt the hairline tutorial from DA that was linked. If it goes well, I'll post some after-pictures of the results :}
