What kind of wig should I buy?

Gah, I feel so helpless. I promise I'm intelligent, haha, I'm just all convention frazzled and I've never had to buy a styled wig before and I just ... this will be my second, I don't want to buy the wrong thing again, haha.

So, to get this hair:
(pictures at bottom of post)

What kind of wig should I buy for this? I would prefer it to be a clip-on ponytail so I could make sure it's positioned right and it just makes it easier to manage. But then what kind of base wig do I buy to clip it on? I need something with bangs so I can make the side and front bangs, but then the rest needs to look like it's ponytail's. So would I just buy a wig for the bangs and then use some Got2B gel to style it like it's ponytail'd? I dunno ... Please help???

I've seen Epic Cosplay wigs styled into ponytails. Autumn Gold looks like a nice shade.

I just tried to wrestle a wig I bought off Ebay into a ponytail, so I'm a little scared of ponytailing it myself. The one ponytail they have looks perfect, but it's out of stock.
Maybe I'll just have to wing it with a short wig and clip?

Would it work to buy this wig in Butterscotch blonde and then buy this clip on ponytail in the same color? Then I would just gel it or something to look puled back, and style the bang part?

Buy the arda wig or another clip on wig. Do not buy from here. The sizing is small and there has been a ton of issues. Either get the arda wig or go w a clip on from them. You are going to have a hard time styling a wig back to get that "slicked" look.

Thank you very much!!! I had looked at Arda before, but I guess I missed this wig.

I would say this works perfect, the bangs are almost perfect, just need a bit of styling, and it's already pulled back and comes with a clip-on. So thank you very much, you helped me out a ton!!!
