60 Inch wig?

Do they exist? I would like to have one for my Rider cosplay in December but the longest I've seen is 48 inches and I would like to get this cosplay as accurate as possible. I'm 5'5" and I measured that I would need probably a 60 inch wig to get it to scale. Here's a link for reference:

Any suggestions or does anyone know of any good wig commisioners?

Amphigory's really long wig should so it for you.

Although you would have to dye it purple because they only have blond but the wig is long enough, on a 5"9' it's almost at her ankles

There is also the "Amanda" wig at Cosworx. http://www.cosworx.com/product.php?p...at=2451&page=1
It comes in the color you need.

You could find 60 inch wigs if you search for the "Godiva" style, but I've never heard of them being even half-way decent quality.

There are many threads in this forum detailing methods for wig dying.

Personally, I'd sacrifice accuracy for quality and just go with a 48" wig; Amphigory says the Really Long Wig is thin and it'd be a pain to dye the whole thing purple. It's also not so nice looking on the top/front because it doesn't have a skin top.

Definately go with the 48. Even those are a bit hard to deal with (I own one). The 60 inch ones are generally a horrid mess. And don't worry, I think Amanda'll work just fine

I definitely recommend sacrificing accuracy in favour of manageability. I have hair past my knees and keep it wavy to hide the tangles, as long hair WILL tangle no matter what. With a super-long wig you'll have to stop constantly to detangle, and even then it'll still end up messy to some degree. :P
