cosplay wig oppinions?

Hi guys, I just wanted to know some opinions on this wig. I'm having it as a back up for a Rose Tyler cosplay. I did have hairs like hers a couple months ago, but the bleaching part really killed my hair (I had to go boy-short because of it, and i had it professionally done)
If you don't think this is a good one, can you please provide me with one you see better? Thanks

So heres reference pictures of Rose:

Rose does have some roots showing, are you going to try to do that?

Depends on whether you want a realistic wig or not. Amphigory and eBay sell them, but they are usually more expensive that wigs labeled for cosplay.

It looks nice to me, but to add realism, you could paint some thin brown streaks in with copic pens, especially at the roots.^^

You can also use Sharpie if you find the right color but any permanent marker will work including TRIA and Prismacolor if you can't find Copic locally.

Unfortunately washable markers will just rub off and won't stay on the wig at all.

I don't know why it was moved, but I found that all the moved threads we can still see. But they are moved?
