Which Airily wig for Matt?

I'm putting together a Matt cosplay, and I decided to go with an Airily wig after hearing good things about the wig line. I'm having a hard time picking a color, though (I'm doing the red hair version of Matt.) Since there aren't any official color references, I looked at fanart, etc., and came up with three possibilities:
  • Akagane Copper/Rusty Orange
  • Brick Red
  • Wine Red
Opinions? If you've cosplayed this version of Matt, what wig did you use?

I actually use the Wisp wig in Firestorm, although Henna Red seems to work.

I'm actually leaning towards the wine red color now. I think. Akagane Copper is a little too orange, and Brick Red is a little too fire-engine red. alicehana, did your friend use an Airily wig, or a similar color from a different line? And would he be okay with you posting a photo or two? I want to see the wig in action!

About the Wisp: I know lots of people use that, but I want to try an Airily wig. I hear they're great, and I guess I'm just excited about the new wig lines?

Then be my guest

Tell us how the wig turns out. I'd love to see it in action.

So I'm starting to think I should get a Wolf Base in Wine Red (will be styling it.) Opinions? Do you think it'll look good, or do you think I'll end up with a too-purple monstrosity?
I think I want that kind of purplish-red color you see in some fanart.

I was going to go with the Angel Bob style at first, but I looked at some pictures of Matt from the manga and anime, and I think his hair is a little bit... messier than that. I think it might be easier to make a Wolf Base a little less crazy than it would be to get that messy style with an Angel Bob.

I just might have a problem with obsessing over wigs.

Wine Red looks like the best color.

I think you're right. I should probably stop obsessing and just get the wig. I don't need it right away since I probably won't be able to finish the outfit in time for my next con, so if the color doesn't work, I guess I could always sell the wig and get another one in a different color?
I'll post photos when I get the wig.
