Kakurenbo Inmu Wig Help

Hello everyone,

I am looking to cosplay Imnu (the red twin):







from the short film Kakurenbo for Anime Next this year, but I'm having trouble figuring out what to do for the wolf/lion-like hair. What I thought about doing was this:

1) Buy this wig (in Spanish Brown) from Arda as a base wig:

http://arda-wigs.com/products/jareth-long

2) Buy 3-4 long wefts in the same color and sew them into base wig.

3) Tease the crap out of it to get the right volume.

So am I right in thinking about taking this approach, or is there another option someone can suggest?

That the way i would build it 4 wefts might be to much as 1 weft is about 1/3 the thickness of Arda's thickest wigs. You might only need 2.

Thank you for letting me know. I wasn't sure how thick the wefts were so I was going to get just 3 to start and order more if I needed it.
