Hetalia France Wig Search: Help Please? ^^

I searched the threads and couldn't find any sort of topic on slightly curly wigs, sooo yeah. If there is, I'm sorry! D:

I'm planning to cosplay France sometime quite soon...or at least get the wig in the meantime. =P I'm also to look into his 'new and improved' hairstyle; which means longer side bangs and what appears to be more wavy than curly.

But for one; I have a big head and thick hair. o.O I don't know how large, but the wigs I have mostly gotten from China and eBay are way too small on my head to feel comfortable or to fit right. I've been looking at Arda wigs, as I got one wig an it's sooo comfy. 8D



^ Here's the reference pic.

I have been looking at Arda wigs and found that either the Pippin or Ferrari may do in Platinum Blonde. For the Pippin however, I will have to put a wave in it...

So, any other recommendations for wigs, or perhaps another wig site for big heads? Or perhaps styling the wig to make it like France's? Thank you~!

Since ard is heat resisten you can do loose waves to his hair by using a stightening iron one section at a time. This section once heated up you curl by have and pin in place. once it cooled down it retains that loose curl shape and creates waves.

Their Westley would have been perfect but doesn't come in Ash Blonde so here's my section recommendation.

Thank you for the tips! ^^

Now looking at the Ash Blonde and Platinum blonde, I think I'll be getting the Ash Blonde.

The Pippin is very nice (especially since I can also part it easily), I'm worried it may get a bit short when I style it.

EDIT: Would sewing in wefts fix this? I've never done this before though. o.O

My recommendation is the Femme Fatale or Faux Fatale from Amphigory Wigs. Color #24 looks pretty close. And the styles are really similar to his already.

^ But with the Femme Fatale or Faux Fatale with my large head these wigs don't 100% fit (but Larger then most china wigs).

Both are nice wigs.

Another option in Arda is to straighten this one.
