Okama Design Wig help?

Original title, I know!

So I will soon be cosplaying a design from Okama's website. Okama is the charcater designer of my favourite manga 'Cloth Road'. and this is the design:

Here!

I don't really mind on the cost and don't mind doing some cutting and styling too. I was looking on arda wigs and thought that the colour "Periwinkle" was the closet colour to the design. If you guys have any suggestions for colour, that would be great.

But, my main problem is the style. I honestly have no idea! Please help!

Was there any other images of her was the back side is unclear as to what the designer was trying to do.
I also like the Periwinkle shade as it's a cool tone blue the is leaning slightly purple.

I looks like the hair on the one side (characters left) is lopped up into the bow on top and on their right side it's trimed to a bob.

I wouls use a LeTigre Long and ask if they have plans for wefted extention of a clip on ponytail as I feel like you will need to thicken up the wig slightly on the one side were the wig will be trimmed as well as the bang area.

I feel like the Ferrari would make a better base and just sew a long clip-on for the loop on the side of the wig and use the wefts that would have gone there to thicken the rest of the wig up.
