Exclamation Fennekin Gijinka wig?

Hiya c: I'm going to probably cosplay a gijinka Fennekin for Otakon 2013, but I can't find a wig that is to my standards.

Here's Fennekin:

And here are some examples of Fennekin gijinkas:

I was looking for a short yellow wig with white tips, or a white under-layer, but apparently that is impossible to find.
I DID, however, find this wig, which I might consider buying and cutting to my satisfaction:
http://www.ebay.com/itm/New-Fashion-...item27ca769b3d

Or, I was also thinking of dyeing a white wig or bleaching(?) a yellow wig.
...can you bleach a wig? I don't think you can, I think that would end terribly.

So, I need suggestions/ideas/opinions/etc.
Have you seen any good yellow wigs with white tips?
Any advice on coloring a wig?
Any advice on anything at all? XD

Thank you all so much in advance c:

u can dye a pure white wig to a pale yellow which i think would work. but heres the deal i wouldnt use the wig u found off of ebay as it looks not completely great, i mean they just say its synthetic fibers not that its heat resistant or non heat resistant. u also can buy two wigs one medium length white and one short yellow and merge them

Have you thought about buying two wigs and combining them to create the two-tone effect? It would also make the wig fluffier. Arda and EpicCosplay both have a nice variety of yellow and yellow-orange shades to choose from, and are reliable high-quality sellers. Or, if the cost is an issue, you could get white wefts to add in at the bottom of the base wig.

Coloring a white wig would work, but combining or wefting would save you the trouble of making the dye the right color.

Hmm, sounds like a good idea. I think I'll try that, thanks Especially since I already have a yellow wig, I'd just need to get a white one.

Err, the one problem is.... How do you combine two wigs? >_<

Reality: Recycled or no cosplay at all. Got to love commissioning! Thanks everyone!! Serious thanks to Dulcinea, who actually made the deadline for the accessories far in advance and of outstanding quality. Sucks they won't be used.

Here are a couple tutorials with different ways of doing it:

http://classewig.com/wig/blog/?p=1609#more-1609
http://www.warpaintandunicorns.com/2...th-merida.html

Hopefully those will give you a general idea. There was another really good one I saw, but I can't seem to find it.

Bahah XD Right, though? The day the Pokemon were announced, there was already pages and pages of fanart and plushies.
