Anyone ever used this wig?

There is a wig I am thinking of buying.. I see it all around Ebay, and I may pick it up on Taobao.



Has anyone ever ordered it before? (in any color) .. If so, can you provide with me with real life pictures? c:

It is for Hinata.. All of the wigs I find are dark blue and not blackish blue.. If you know what I mean. I shall continue looking though ~ (don't need help with that. xP)

I've had the silver and white ones, the wigs caps were tiny, and the fibers looked okay, but didn't cut well and frizzed loads.
Wouldn't recommend it at all.

I have the same one in red, and the wig cap is really small! I love the color and the quality of the wig, but if you have a big head like me, it won't fit comfortably.

I'd actually say stay away from the arda wig that Pheasants linked. I've used that same wig in a commission, and it arrived tangled. Their wigs are known for tangling. I say go with epiccosplay.com.

It looks to be the right color. And their wigs are known for NOT tangling. So that's better lol

Fusion Purple from Epic Cosplay is really purple!

Her are some options.
http://www.epiccosplay.com/36-midnig...splay-wig.html

From Arda i recommend the this wig in Rave you just need to straighten out the hair with a straightening iron or boiled water.
http://arda-wigs.com/collections/rav...oducts/luthien
The style is layered making it less pron to tangling and with the bangs cut into it already.


Fantasy sheep is another seller that gets great reviews on their wigs and colour range.

and these sellers.

Thank you for all the replies everyone.. <33
I think I will go with the fantasy sheep one. I actually didn't notice it when I was browsing. The color is perfect.

I actually have a couple more questions..
Now I need to pick out a wig for Sakura and Naruto.
The problem arises, when it comes to my skin tone..

http://makeupdirection.files.wordpre...lour-chart.jpg
My skin is medium to light beige. Maybe Apricot mix.

Yellows and light pinks just look weird on me. If I did a pink, it would have to be on the darker side.

For Naruto I found this..
http://item.taobao.com/item.htm?spm=...id=13877948462
http://img01.taobaocdn.com/imgextra/...!!17501607.jpg

But, I am not sure if it will turn out too yellow. I am thinking of going with Canary for the color. But I don't want to order it and then it looks yellow.. I think it should be cool though.
Judging by the pictures, it also looks like it is okay for very light spiking. Which is what I am doing. :3 Hopefully it is, the wigs need to be perfect, since this is the last order I can do before the convention.

Also found this..

http://item.taobao.com/item.htm?spm=...d=23590932571&
But it may be too light, and look weird.. haha.

Opinions on which one you guys think is better? c:

And then Sakura.. Finding a wig for her has been very difficult.
I figured this color would go better with my skin tone.

http://item.taobao.com/item.htm?spm=...id=14321302913
Problem is, it is way too long. xD
I could cut it to her length, but it just seems like a waste.
Bob cuts also look weird. I would like to fnid a wig that is shoulder length and flares out instead of in.. (yeh, I know I am picky)


It would be nice if I could find my Sakura wig on Taobao, too. <33
(I am doing a big order there soon)
I shall continue to look ~

shades are very personal i find , Fe me i like to go a bit darkern then pale blondes as they wash me out being super fair. I think Cannary would look find as it has a golden tone to it.

Long wig as usually thinner then short wigs. Also which version of Sakura are you doing?

Colour wise you could do Pink or Coral so that the colour doesn't clash with your skin as her hair colour is a cool tone pink.

Sorry for the kind of long reply.. >n<

Err so.. I guess it would help to have a picture of me, huh?
I am just getting so frustrated, I don't want to order a bad color.. When I receive these wigs, it would be 2 weeks before the con. Meaning, if they turn out bad, I would probably have to resort to a used wig from someone in the marketplace (if I could find one).. Or a party store wig. D:

Cannary was sadly out of stock.. >.> I am kind of upset about that, but things happen.
I am cosplaying as Shippuden Sakura.. c:
I REALLY liked this style.
(EDIT: I also liked the style you liked too.. Since Pink is looking, well, too pink, I may go with Coral. I guess)
http://item.taobao.com/item.htm?spm=...id=13287875914
Coral is sold out. But Pink is still there.. It looks WAY too bright though. I am hoping it is only the lighting. I heard Fantasy Sheep is not good with being true to color.. That thought scares me greatly. I really liked the color of the long pink wig I linked.. Something pale but not too pale.
EDIT: maybe something like these..
http://th07.deviantart.net/fs71/PRE/...ki-d39yzq8.jpg
http://fc04.deviantart.net/fs70/i/20...am-d376gpa.jpg (this one is pretty pink though. xD)
So I am stuck between Pink and Coral.. hmm...

So as far as Naruto wigs go, I stumbled upon these..

http://item.taobao.com/item.htm?spm=...cm=1007.77.0.0
http://item.taobao.com/item.htm?spm=...2582.42.zmZpBm
http://item.taobao.com/item.htm?spm=...2995.61.KusEf1
http://item.taobao.com/item.htm?spm=...2995.53.vkglpc
http://item.taobao.com/item.htm?spm=...42462.5.dkM50S
(just noticed all the links are broken, this cant be fixed, I have to find the wigs again. :/)

I will be making the order on Saturday. So thanks so much Ani Bee for your help so far. <33

Yup. All are working except the last ones. xP
I spent a good amount of time last night re-finding the wigs and finding new ones.
Will post when found.
