Help! What kind of colour should I choose for this wig?

Whoops, another wig colour help thread, I'm sorry. Like I said in my last thread if anyone saw it, I'm not the best at telling the difference between colours and sometimes I just can't quite work out what kind of colour I should get for wigs, I don't want to get something inaccuate... so getting opinions from people who aren't me is nice.

A cosplay I hope to start working on really soon is Chihiro from Dangan Ronpa. However, I just can't seem to figure out that hair colour!



It looks sorta ginger-y, but brown? Or maybe a dark blonde with a ginger tint to it... I've seen some people use that colour but what kind of colour am I searching for here to be most accurate? Am I better going with one that's more ginger or less ginger?

Her hair kind of seems like a dirty, sandy blond, maybe light hazel brown? I'm sorry, my skills at identifying colours aren't all that great..

Arda's Sandy Brown 124 or Warm Light Brown AR015, and Epic's Cocoa Brown look similar.

It's alright, me neither. Hence why I'm stuck between all the colours.

I do think that it seems to have quite ginger tones in it... especially compared to other blonde characters in the series, the colour definitely doesn't seem to be any type of straight up blonde. I wouldn't say it looked like straight up brown either but I guess my colour identifying skills arent anything worth trusting...

A friend linked me this one, do you think this kind of colour is close? (question to anyone who views this thread, not just you, of course)

Augh, I tried to reply to this yesterday but the site stopped working... sorry, I didn't ignore you! I'm sorta leaving Arda as a last option since I got hit with customs pretty bad with them last time and ended up sorta regretting the purchase but oooh I really do like that other colour and one of the wigs there seems pretty suitable too, thanks!

No worries! You may have better luck looking at realistic wigs in the UK. Her hair isn't really an anime style or color.

Using this from coscraft might work, but in order to get that style I would, take off the clips, and take the clips out, straighten that hair, then take the wefts apart and sew them into the base wig for more length and volume.

Ah, thanks! I do quite like that wig, it leans a little more on the blonde side than I like but I do quite like the colour, hm.

This one looks pretty close colour-wise to me, but it might take a bit of work to get the pigtails to stay down if the seller added spray.

There's also this which might be a bit on the dark side, but is also pretty close, I think.

Edit: This wig in light brown may do the trick as well!
