Hair Color Spray

Hi guys! I'm having a issue with finding a wig, so I'm going to just use hair color spray. Idk which shade to pick though. My hair is long and dark colored which will make colors different. So will light blue spray work well, or will just regular blue spray work? What about using blue/purple?

None of the sprays will work, actually. You'll end up with streaky, clumpy color that shows your natural hair right through the spray, and you will end up with flakes of that color on your shoulders and the rest of your costume.

Purple wigs in that style aren't all that rare and we can help you find one, but if you'd really prefer not to get one it's better for your hair and for the rest of your costume just to use your natural color.

no I want a wig, it's just that I'm having trouble finding one because every one I like is out of stock...

Just a few of the wigs I found on ebay that'd work, if all the western sellers are out of stock.

Thanks for those links. I believe the last one is the best out of all of them. My mom is going to a sewing store and see if anyone would make the costume for me. If they can, I'll go ahead and buy it. :3
