Serah (base) wigs?

I was looking around for some Serah wigs, and I found a really nice one on eBay. But then a lot of wigs had the same picture, so I didn't really trust it

What would be a wonderful base wig to cute and style for Serah?

And if you can find a perfect pre-cut wig that'd be go cool too ^^

P.S. I'm kind of a perfectionist, sorry ;~;

Are you talking about this picture/wig http://www.ebay.com/itm/Final-Fantas...em27c6f5 7f8b

A lot of times the company's over sea's will use the provided photos for the wig for their icon of the wig instead of setting up their cameras and taking their own photos. If the photo has been water marked with a store name and that store name is not the water mark name, I would not buy from there.

Read the feed back from the buyers and see if the wig they got matched well to what the photo looks like.

Arda wigs has a "serah" color wig but you have to style it. All wigs you buy you will have to do some sort of styling yourself like cut the bangs.

This is the one I am currently using for Serah:
http://item.rakuten.co.jp/etika/clc030/

Sometimes the colour is a matter of preference though. If you see one you like on Ebay, you could link to it. Sometimes, it is a stolen photo. Although we can't necessarily identify where a photo comes from each time, there's nothing to lose by asking about a particular seller.

For example, the one Shallon posted is yoinked from a store on taobao. (I've been looking into that store and trying to see if it might have come from somewhere else, though all images I see of that mannequin have coserstyle's logo on it...). Aside from coserstyle, Lucaille, Grand Young, and Meilifang are *very* popularly stolen by Ebay sellers.

I would try this one. http://www.wig-supplier.com/100cm-lo...l16-p-261.html

It's not very expensive for any of these wigs, I buy all of mine here.

It's very good quality, and I've never had any problems for the past 3 years I've been on that site.

Yea, A lot of ebay sellers take photos from taobao and there is a 50/50 chance that is the wig they have. I like to order from taobao because I feel safer.... I know that is odd but I do. reading reviews in ebay helps but if there is a seller of a wig you like just link it and maybe someone else has bought that wig. Also if you search for the serah cosplayers on here and ask them about their wig they maybe reply back with a link as to where they got it from.

Also @usuyukisou can you post up some of your own photos of that serah wig. I have looked at it many times and wondered about it.

^ I've been meaning to get around to adding photos to all my reviews, especially since I now have a working camera again. I'll PM you when Serah's photos are up?

Both my friend and I bought this one a while back (the color has a bit more brown in it than the seller's images) http://www.ebay.com/itm/Final-Fantas...em337c6e 9c38 The seller is pretty reputable and all of their wigs in their store are on the same wig heads so I think they're pretty safe to buy from.

It's pretty easy to restyle. The ponytail was tied totally on the wrong side so I had to take that tie off, reposition it, straighten it, then recurl it (in that order) and of course trim the bangs. Had to move the part over a little too since I didn't like how it was positioned. The fibers are really really nice! Here's what my restyled wig looks like http://fav.me/d5t073w
