Barbie

So I know this a completely off the wall question about an icon that is totally not anime related. But I want to go all out on a Barbie costume this Halloween. I know I'm starting early but it'll take me awhile to get all of the perfect pieces but it was suggested I get a wig as opposed to styling my already blonde hair. I am going for the look of Barbie in the 1980's and 90s. Sort of big curly/wavy hair and I think I found the perfect wig, it's just a matter of color. I think bleach blonde would be perfect but a friend suggested the yellow and white mix. Anyone familiar with either of these colors? Thank a bunch!

The fact that she's not anime is irrelevant. Cosplay is not Japanese-exclusive.

I vote for bleach-blonde. That's what most of my dolls were. And I didn't see the white/yellow available for that wig.

And please do post pictures when you get the costume made; it sounds awesome!

Yeah I fiured it would be irrelevant, I wanted to get the super duper anime copslay people off. Yeah I didn't realize until after this post was made that the yellow/white color was not available for the wig and yes I will post pics once everything is put together. I saw the color in photos and it looked the right color.
