Help with a Japan wig?

So my friends have conned me into cosplaying Japan for their Axis group coming up this summer. I've managed to pick out the costume I want, but I'm having some difficulties as far as the wig is concerned. I've searched the forums, but the one thread that was actually helpful... is very outdated and the suggested wig was discontinued, and as much as I would love to use one, getting a Wolfstyle or Angel Bob in Airily is just too expensive now that the Cosplay.com shop no longer carries them (shipping would be as much as the wig itself!) and the Japanese sizes tend to run smaller than the ones Cosplay.com used to carry I think?

I don't mind attempting some minimal styling, but I'm looking for a wig with some nice, thick wefts so that my hair doesn't show under it... and there's a lot of hair getting stuffed under it, since I can currently almost sit on it.

I was originally thinking of just getting this wig off of ebay. But I'm a bit concerned that it might be too thin or short on me.

Can anyone suggest a reliable pre-styled wig, or possibly a good base one I could style?

Arda wigs are very thick:

I think the Lulu would be the best for Japan. Here's more on their website:

Hope it helps.

THanks for the suggested, the Lulu actually looks really nice and appears thick enough! Now I won't have to pay close to $70 with shipping for that Airily wig!

I used this for my Japan wig.

http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll... _11752wt_1139

It's cheap (Just under $20, with free shipping!), and it's great quality.

And it's quite thick.
