Haruhi Fujioka wig

Okay I'm buying a new wig for my cosplay and I found this one.

I think it would be a pretty nice wig for Haruhi, but I'm not totally sure. Please give your oppinions, I don't wanna buy something and then decide that it doesn't look good. That's what happened with my last wig, meh.

That doesn't look like a bad wig to me. The colour's pretty, for sure.

My one thing is that I've heard that wigs from eBay sellers that look flippy online are actually SUPER flippy in real life.

I've never bought from this particular seller, though, so listen to someone who has over me.

Yeah, I've bought from that seller and you can probably expect it to be more flippy in reality.

From memory, I think Haruhi's hair might have been longer at the front? I might be wrong though.

Lol! I've actually bought from the seller before, a pink wig for my Haruno Sakura cosplay. It actually didn't turn out too much flippier than the original, though it was a tad bit shorter. Either way the wig was nice. Anyway though I think I may have found a better wig..it's not quite as flippy. I've never bought from this seller before though so yeah.

I used nearly the exact wig for my Haruhi cosplay: http://cgi.ebay.com/Chestnut-Brown-Silky-Layered-Short-Wigs-Thick-1-SZ_W0QQitemZ360018522528QQihZ023QQcategoryZ60188QQ tcZphotoQQcmdZViewItem. It worked alright, and a friend kept petting the fibers because they were so soft. The color is actually more red-based than Haruhi's, but it's still lovely. However, the bangs are too short: http://www.cosplay.com/photo/1327373/. I'm currently adding extensions to them, so if you don't mind the shorter bangs or adding extensions, the wig is a good choice.

Wow your wig looks very nice, even with the short bangs. I think the wig from perihair is less red based, and the bangs look longer..but then again that may not be the case when I actually wear the wig. Either way though, I think I'd rather have the bangs a tad bit too short than too long. I hate having bangs hanging in my eyes.

I looked at a LOT of wigs before settling on one for my Haruhi cosplay, and the Twiggy from Amphigory was it: http://amphigory.com/wigs_fy_twiggy.html (You can see more pics in my cosplay gallery =D). It was ideal. The Twiggy's a little less expensive ($23) as wigs go, but it's high quality. ^^

As for the bangs thing... I think your best bet is hair gel. You can put gel in a wig like you would with real hair, and if you section it off it'll stay out of your eyes better.

that wig looks pretty good...you probably just have to trim it in the back a little.

i also bought a wig from Amphigory, fashion 101 in dark brown
http://www.amphigory.com/wigs_fy_fashion_101.html

it doesn't appear as nice as the twiggy (i debated between those two for a looong time), but i was very happy once i tried it on (it did need a wee bit of trimming) http://www.cosplay.com/photo/1343081/
