Hair colour help, new to forums!

Hi everyone, I don't really know if this is the right place to post as I'm new here.

I'm creating an armor cosplay from the character Lightning from final fantasy to go to MCM in London, the armor is going well however I have a dilemma. I'm currently debating if i should spray my hair light pink (my hair is dark brown) or if i should buy a wig, at the moment i can't find any wigs that aren't expensive and I was a bit sceptical about wearing a wig as this is my first cosplay and i wanted to keep it natural. No wigs suit me as I have fair skin but dark hair and eyebrows, so what would you all think?

Wig or hair spray for brown hair?

Thanks for your time!

Get a wig. Colored hair spray never really works out well.
What's this for? It's a wig.
What's it for? To disguise yourself from yourself.

That's a really good wig for lightning, free posting because coscraft are from the UK, so it'll get to you in time for expo too.
They do really good quality wigs, but yeah, always get a wig, spray on colour is awful.
Tumblr? or Facebook?

Because the wig Pheasants linked in heat resistant you can dye it with a brown of gold fabric dye to get the shades you want using this method.

Or use permanent maker if the hair fibers looks shinny.

The only time I would recommend using you own hair if it's already the right shade or you willing to dye it to the shade.

Spray on color and temporary dyes yield bad results.
