Drill curls like these

Okay, I want to do a wig like in the picture attached, which means some crazy drill curls. I'm wondering what the best way to do this is. I've seen people use the Leia wig from Arda, but I don't think that'd be suited for drill curls placed so high, but I'm not sure. I'm just going off my experience with the Chibi, which doesn't go that high, really.

Also, I'm very confused as to the best way to attach the curls to my base wig, as tutorials aren't very clear on that. (At least the ones I've found.) I'm clear on every other step but this. Can anyone clarify?

Thanks for looking, any advice would be appreciated!

EDIT: Forgot the picture. XD http://s579.photobucket.com/user/Kas...tml?sort=3&o=0

Actually, I found this which I quite like. I'm not sure how to accomplish this look, though...

Alright, I think I'll get a short base wig from Arda along with some wefts and do the usual packaging tape + wire + caulk thing. Still, I'd like to know the best way to attach the pieces to the wig. ;__;

I've never actually attached drill curls to a wig before, BUT I know people who have and they literally sewed through the hair and tape and connected it to the base wig.
