Well, isn't this lovely...

So I ordered a Canada wig. It looks great...except it's way too brown. I have pics of it up in my gallery. So now, I'm in the running for a new wig, but I clearly can't pick correctly on my own, though they looked the correct color in the picture...

So, I'm asking you fine folks to help me out. Any suggestions for a Canada wig? Any at all?

Could these maybe work?

That one may be a bit short, but the color seems right.

I've ordered from this site. Their wigs are pretty good, I've never had any issues with them other than problems arising from my own carelessness.
Hope this helps a little. I'm sure others on here can be more helpful.

Might I suggest getting a base wig from arda-wigs and then getting some wefts to make the curl yourself? Many of the wigs you buy for Canada/Romano/Italy/anyone with a curl/ahoge usually come with the curl part braided...And it looks pretty wonky. Making it yourself would probably be a better idea..

Here's the tutorial for the ahoge-Click

The only issue I'd have with just getting a base wig and trying to style it is my horrible sight. Due to that, I'm not really confident/comfortable with styling aside from maybe putting wigs in ponytails, granted they'd be uneven as hell.

To that extent, I did some looking around on eBay, a place I said I'd NEVER go back to, and managed to find SEVERAL results...but they all use the exact same photo. This already tripped my scam alert system, but I think I've found a seemingly legit one. What do you all think?

Well, my plans for Pottertalia have changed. I went to the theme park and it rekindled my love for the Beauxbatons uniform. So I decided to be fem!France as a Beauxbatons student. It will most likely be read as Fleur but I'm okay with that.

Once I get my sewing machine fixed I'm going to start my Thailand cosplay! When I first learned about Hetalia one of my first questions was "is there a Thailand character?" And there is!... but you don't see much of him T.T So I'll probably be one of the only (if not the only) Thailand at Otakon.

You'll have to point out what Thailand looks like, but I'll totally come over and give you a warm welcome as Canada! Maybe I'll give you some pancakes, eh? hehe

Seriously, I can't wait to see what the character looks like AND your cosplay of him!

Ahah! My wig finally came in yesterday! Oh my! This one is SUPER SOFT!! I wanna snuggle with it! ...er, ehem. Seriously though, it's so soft and fluffy! I never expected it to be this good! Looks like eBay DOES have its gems after all.

I just have to figure out how to keep the curl in place. It's perfectly done, but it just won't stay still. It was done on a wire, so it kinda goes its own way. If I can figure this small little issue out, then everything is set!

Here're the pics I took on my own:

Suggestions? Tips? Comments? Anything? hehe

Awww! Thank you!
I only need to figure out how to keep the curl from swiveling back and forth, and it's all set! It's on a wire, so if only I could keep it secure...In this case,it looks like eBay actually paid off!

I've never had to do the curl thing, but could securing the end to the wig with a bobby pin maybe help? Or maybe tightening the bottom of the wire by using pliers or something? Someone else on here is bound to have better advice, so I'm certain they will be able to help you ^^

I'm completely stuck as to what I approach next for Hetalia. xD

I was thinking of doing Poland, and then that plan fell through. (girlfriend decided to drop Lithuania for Link. OTL) ;w; My group then wanted an Austria, and I stood up for that...aaand then my group decided that they won't be doing Austria/Hungary/Prussia this year.

So now I'm back to square one.

I'm not sure if this is the right place to ask, but...who should I cosplay next? ;w; (I'm curious as to what you guys think I'd look good as...)

So yeah!

I have my cosplay lineup more or less set. I'm doing Canada on Friday definitely. But, I'm kinda lost on what to do for Saturday. Now, I REALLY REALLY REALLY REALLY REALLY REALLY want to cosplay Holy Rome now! What in blazes is wrong with me?! hehe

I had my Ask-A-Nation panel today. I tried to film it but my camera malfunctioned. I did get like two questions but most people focused on America.
