Hetalia Wig Help?

Hey guys!! I've been on the lookout for a good Hong Kong wig, but I haven't quite found the right "look" and price. I've already found some wigs that could potentially work, but (all too often) they're too expensive for the budget that I have currently. So, I've turned to the interwebs to see if you guys could help me find a wig that resembles this fabulous anime character Any help is greatly appreciated, thx!!

Here's the character's hair from different angles:

That would be my suggestion! You'd have to trim the bangs, but I think it'd work!

Two other alternatives could be these two: http://www.thefivewitswigs.com/shop/...honen-meister/ or: http://matchwigs.com/buy-cosplay-wig...g-cosplay.html
The first one is actually supposed to be a prestyled wig for Greece, but I'm sure you can smooth it out/style it out for Hong Kong. The second one you can also also smooth out to get HK's layered hair.

These look great!! Do you know if the first one is suited towards bigger head sizes? I have extremely thick hair (It's like the stuff barbwire's made of) and I usually have to go with Arda or Epic cosplay wigs, but the style looks extremely close to good ol' Hong Kong so I'm conflicted on it

Haha glad I could help

I double checked and I believe they can fit a 23" head. And you can use the straps to extend the size so it'll fit comfortably.

Someone messaged me another wig suggestion-do you guys think an Arda Jaguar could also work? Here's what it looks like:

I'm still hesitant on which wig to use (they're all great!!) -but I want to thank you all for taking the time to help me, I'm super happy there's such nice people on this site

Me again
I know that feeling too xD
Yes, the Jaguar in Spanish Brown is perfect too (I believe that's what that colour is) but I think you mentioned you were on a budget? But if you're willing to pay for this one I say go for it. MatchWigs is the cheapest (and you can style all three obviously, it just needs to have layers) but where accuracy is concerned, I'd go with the Jaguar. (If I could give some personal advice on wig experience, I always go with Arda and adjust budgets accordingly, cheaper wigs are good on the wallet but turns out to not work well for me honestly).
So I guess you can choose between the MatchWigs one or the Jaguar to narrow down your search

Thx again for the reply!! I was on a budget-but I realized that my b-day is coming up (yay I'm aging) so I might get the wig as a present-or I can buy it whenever Arda has a wig sale If not, I can get the MatchWigs one

You may or may not have to wait, the next Arda sale is for Halloween but if you're just looking right now then ok. If you have enough coins, you might be able to get in on a discount.
Good luck
