John Egbert/Jake English wig styling help.

Hi I plan on cosplay Jake English and John egbert to the upcomig Ohayocon, I was wonderig if I could ask for a tutorial or some help on telling me how to style the wigs correctly. I'd also want to know if you guys could show me a site for a good Jake English wig. I've never owned a wig and this would be my first time buying/styling one. I;ll provide a few Pictures of Jake,.

I'd get a really fluffy wig and just sweep it up to look more natural.

Brands like Arda, Epic Cosplay, Five Wits, and ebay stores such as Moe Mall, Cosplay Wig, and Ayanamisatoru all sell shorter, black, spikable wigs. You may have to trim the hair before gathering the spikes and spraying them with hair spray.

You also have two options for how you want your wig to look: 1) natural spikes, as seen on this cosplayer; or 2) unnatural spikes, as seen on Malindachan.
Look up wig spiking tutorials on YouTube or deviantArt on ways to trim and style wigs this way. If your wig is also heat resistant, you can hit it with a blow dryer for additional staying power. Hope this helps!

Just saying I would not buy from that site; they steal pictures by the looks of it. And it kind of looks like another Milanoo scam.

If you are looking for wigs I definitely agree with PSY-chan's suggestions.
If not try CosplayWig on Ebay or MoeMall.

I also really love TheCosplayCornor's tutorials
