Ocarina wig

Can someone help me with what to use to construct this wig? I want it to be relatively full and not scraggly, but not super-expensive, as I'm kinda on a tight budget for the costume.

Here's a link to a character picture.


Thanks a ton.

You can get a perfect matching bob wig in that color and then tease the hair back and then shape it into spikes with hairspray...and or gel and everything else...cheap hairspray is the key and use a blowdryer to dry the hairspray and instant hold...should work well.

lmao! I just styled an Ocarina wig for myself! ^^;; Well, my situation was different. I had a leftover turquoise bob wig that didn't work for another costume. I severely layered it, teased it with a wash of watered-down glue, and then I put acrylic paint in it thinly to make the color more blue. I'm pretty satisfied,... with just some hair spray and more teasing, it should defy gravity at a con. Where are you wearing Ocarina to? I'll be wearing mine at Ushicon. ^.^ .. as long as I can get the last bit of fat off my hips before wearing that bit of loincloth-on-a-string. O.O
