Maka wig color

I've decided I'm going to be doing Black Blood version of Maka. Since I can be such a perfectionist, I'm having troubles deciding what color I want to order my wig in >.<... The color of her hair seems to be inconsistent between the anime, the manga, and art books T^T. Thus far the most common color seems to be an ash blonde, so that's probably what I'll go for, but I thought I'd get some advice on what would likely look best/most accurate... Thanks much for the help >.<;;.

Ahahaha, I totally agree with you. Her hair color seems to change between the three mediums. Cosplayers tend to use a variety of blondes as well, so I've noticed. I think it comes down to your preference. Some people just buy whatever wig they find irregardless of the color, but I think the more serious cosplayers are going towards the ash blonde. That's what I'm going for as well.

Thank you for the input =D. I've not really seen anyone have an ash blonde wig for the cosplay, in person at least, but I'm fairly confident that it'll look best. Just curious, but will you be doing the regular school uniform?

She's any where to a super light ash blonde to a dark ash blonde. I definitely think something like "milk tea" is spot on though. http://cosplaysky.com/media/catalog/...50-st020-1.jpg I think this is a great color because its a little brownish, not too blonde, not too light, but not too vivid. She's so specific!

I've seen a lot of variety, and I think you should find one that you think would look good with your skin tone, so it looks more natural.

@KnightJeran- That is a great color! I've never ordered from that shop though, and they don't make mention of how thick the wigs are or if they have a skin cap >.<. I'm really picky so I'll probably order from cosworks or amighory since I've received great wigs from both in the past, but I may try to find a color close to that. Thanks!

@Black_The_White- Nice =D. I'll be making the death scythe version of Maka's scythe, and thought about making the Spartoi uniform since it's nice.

@Pokkypok- You really could go with a variety of colors, but as far as it goes as skin tone, I'm a natural blonde and any light shade goes well with my complexion =3. Besides I've had my hair about every color, with the exception of green, and somehow it's not looked bad xD. It's all in make-up when it comes to skin tones.

Finally found the perfect wig! It's available in a wonderful light ash blonde shade too =w=.

Thanks for everyone else's help, and hopeful other Maka cosplayers out there looking for a wig, can benefit from the linkage, since finding a good pigtail wig in the right shade is challenging x.x.

Is that the Chibi wig from Arda wigs? http://arda-wigs.com/Chibi.html

I ask because the link you have doesnt work for me. And this is the wig that I am thinking about using for my Maka cosplay that I am doing for Otakon this year. And I agree that the ash blonde looks like the best color for it!
