Arceus Wig Suggestions?

So my idea of cosplaying Houndoom has utterly flopped... With the fact that I can't really make the ribbones like I would have... I decided to switch characters.

I decided to go with an Arceus Gijinka pictured here: http://i33.photobucket.com/albums/d7...on/5321552.jpg

I absolutely adore the design, but I'm wondering- any suggestions for the wig? Like which style I should go for? I'm not worried about the two tone wig... As I'm doing the gold part more like the medallion of the actual pokemon seen here: http://i645.photobucket.com/albums/u...ley/arseus.jpg

With that in mind any suggestions for a wig would be great... I was debating about Rose from the Cosworx line (from their small remaining few wigs).

But I want something that flares out more I think.

In any case thanks in advance for the help.

Rose would look fine, there's Sugar Rush from Amphigory which flares out a little more

for the bangs I suggest you buy the wig in the blond color and then use a sharpie or some kind of marker to color the bangs, that's what a lot of people do.

I'd rather not do the bangs a different color. I don't care for it... So I'm going to alter the design a bit and probably make it a little more accurate to the pokemon- since it looks more like the pokemon has a medallion on it's forehead. Anyway thanks for the suggestion~! I think that wig is more appropriate than Rose.

Though I do have a question; how is the quality for Amphigory? I've never used them, are they easily tangled? The last thing I want is another long tangle y wig... ._.

Amphigory isn't a brand, it's merely a storefront that offers a number of lines. The quality of the various wiglines varies- but I've bought wigs from both their Classic (which is actually the Lacey brand) and Anytime Wigs lines (New Look is exactly the same as the ones Cosworx carries) and I've been fully satisfied with their quality.

The Forever Young line that Sugar Rush is from I've never bought from, but I've heard others that have and had no problem with them.

If you do order from them, you want to keep in mind that it can take them anywhere from 2-6 weeks for them to ship... so order at least a month in advance.

I understand I've bought from several wig shops before, several in China so I know how long the wait can be anywhere from 4-8 weeks.
