Question Is this wig worthy of a Furude Rika cosplay?

So I'm planning on cosplaying as Furude Rika from Higurashi no Naku Koro Ni at NEXT (I know) year's Anime Expo. And well, none of my friends and I have a clue as to how to style a wig. So I was looking for a cheap wig that already looked sort of like Rika's hairstyle.

Do you think that this works?
If anybody has a better suggestion, please let me know.

This is what Rika looks like for the people who don't know.

By the way, I'm a new user on this site. So forgive me if I messed up and didn't do something correctly. D;

I'm a MUCH bigger fan of navy/black rika, but if that's the color you like I say the style would be alright. At the bottom of the wig though it looks like it's a tad tangled? As Virus said it may be better to find one that wouldn't tangle so easily, if it's tangled in the beautiful picture of auctions think about what it would be like when it ame to you......I've never dealt with barbie though, try seaching the forum to see what people say.

*makes hanyuu look at her siggy*
If I may say, look at cosworx, they have some nic tougher wigs at reasonable prces and they ship pretty fast! they have a color caled 'midnight blue' that would look great for Rika! If you didn't like the color cosworx wigs are also REALLY easy to dye!

T-T; Problem is, I can't really afford their wigs. But if the auction fails on me,then I'll take a look into it. Ty~!

*stares at hAtTer's siggy* RENAAAAAAAA 8D

La~ Outbid at last second. Had 8 seconds left and it didn't refresh fast enough. :P

Well then, I guess it's back to buying from Cosworx.

That's what Rika looks like. And would someone please suggest a wig from the store that matches her hairstyle better? Thank you. :3

Well, I'm totally new to cosplay myself ^^;

I'm also going to be cosplaying as Rika, but in her adult form as seen in ep 24 of Kai.
This is the wig I'll be using if you're interested.

Maybe an Ivy in midnight blue might do the trick. cut and style the bangs just a bit, and it just might work~
