Need help deciding on a wig

Reference pictures:

I'm having trouble choosing a wig for this cosplay. I need it to be thick enough to add layers and I want to get as close to her color hair as possible.

Wigs I'm looking at:
Arda: http://arda-wigs.com/products/luthien in Dark Blue.
I'd straighten it, cut the bangs and ends, and add layers.

Epic Cosplay: http://www.epiccosplay.com/36-midnig...splay-wig.html
Layer it, fix the bangs, and cut the ends.

I feel like the epic cosplay wig is closer in color, but I read a few reviews that said epic cosplays wigs tend to be way off in color. Which one would be better for adding layers and closest in color?

Any input is appreciated!

Arda Dark Blue is closer in shade as it more cool tone then the Epic cosplay one (which is Indigo in colour)

Either way with long wig I recommended pretreat them with silicon spray as even Epic's dose tangle at long length. The silicon make them more manageable.

The second image you link looks like Midnight Blue (073B) from Arda as well.

The dark blue from Arda is pretty close in to Lucina's in game color (at least the cutscene color). I'm actually doing Lucina as well, but I chose Ferrari instead.

Here are two images of the dark blue color:

I can't say much about Epic Cosplay, as I have yet to purchase from them. But from what I've heard, their wigs tend to be better in terms of managing the tangle.

Arda is out of stock of Dark blue Ferrari so I figured I could just go with the Luthien which is just a longer version. But that looks great! Thanks
