Which wig to choose? Sakura

Sorry.. I wasn't sure where to put this. >n<
I am cosplaying Sakura Haruno and am ordering the cosplay Wednesday. (along with all my other cosplay. cx)

But the problem is, I don't know which wig to pick. :/
Atm, I have my heart set on two, but if anyone has other suggestions, feel free to share. ^^

Here is a picture of Sakura..


And the two wigs..




Do you think either would work? I was thinking that the second one is too light and I have to decide by Wedenesday. :/
Thanks in advance!

I'd probably do the second after chopping off the idiot hair.

If color is a problem, maybe color the wig darker?

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.

I agree the second choice looks better. It's closer to her shade and looks fluffier. Although, I wouldn't chop off the ahoge, just wash the wig fibers. If you can find Lucaille brand wigs, they do have a designated Sakura wig available (also through Moe Mall).

The fibers of the second wig do look much softer and is a lighter pink, making it more like Sakura's than the first one.

And yeah, don't go "chopping" the hair that sticks up, brush it out and wash it to get the hair spray or gel they used. :3
But either wig you buy will need to be cut and styled to make it look accurate.

Well.. I wanted to go for the dark pink look instead of the light pink. I have seen cosplays with a little darker pink, I always though that looked better.. :/
And I know the first ones quality isn't very nice. I am having trouble finding a wig how I want.
Like the second one with the first ones color.
I know I could dye it, but I am afraid if I mess up. >n<

Check out Moe Mall, Arda, and Epic Cosplay to see if any of their wigs suit your taste. I don't know what your budget is, but they might have something.
