Late 80s style wig?

Does anyone have any suggestions of a good quality wig that could be used for Pauline's hair in this video?

Arda's medium length wigs give you a few options. If you don't mind a little inaccuracy in the bangs, then the Elizabeth would be a good length and similar style. The Glinda has the bangs and curls better, but is a little short and not as voluminous.

Bangs might actually be good since I'm going to be crossplaying and apparently bangs help hide the forehead better?

Check out the Lioness wig from wildcatwigs.com and item number 290446311666 on ebay. I cannot post links evidently as I must be on some sort of probation as a newbie on the forums.

The wildcatwigs would probably be a good bet because you could get a matching piece for the braid she wears at the crown.

Thanks! I suppose I'd have to do some work on the hairstyle though with the wildcatwig, since it is quite a bit longer than Pauline's style.

Would be easy to cut tho, and the curls would hide any imperfections. Just cut a little at a time.

I think it's time to order the wig! I want to start practicing doing the makeup, but want a wig to do it with.

Still not sure if I want to do Pauline's hair as shown in the pic as a purist or to go with a more traditional southern belle look.

Well, I got my wig from Arda Wigs today:

http://arda-wigs.com/products/elizabeth

However, when trying it on I look more like this:

I'm not sure if it's because the wig needs to be styled, or my head is too big, or I really need to see it once I get a handle on crossplay makeup. But it definitely is more /O\ than |0|
