HELP! Gumi wig! Too florescent of a green?

So this is my first time buying a green wig. And I'm working on a Gumi Vocaloid cosplay specifically her outfit from Love is War! Here's a pic for reference.


I've bought wigs from ebay before and they've been amazing. So I was on ebay trying to find a Gumi wig.. and all the wigs are either this dingy green or too teal of a green for my taste.

I did find this one wig. Click this link to see.
http://cgi.ebay.com/Vocaloid-2-Gumi-Cosplay-Wig-Costume-Ver3-/220770591781?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item3366f3 e425#ht_5430wt_974
I like the green. It's much like how it is in my reference picture. I'm just scared it waaaay too florescent because I don't want a green with this icky cheap florescent glare. What do you guys think? Idk, maybe I'm asking a little bit too much. Just though I should ask the community of coscom for advice and maybe you guys know where to buy an awesome Gumi wig that's precut already or if the wig I found is good enough.

Thanks in advance!

The problem wig here illustration colour is that it's a gradient and to achieve that in a wig takes aloy of layers. The colour is a moss green in tone rather then the bright one you linked.

Not so bright but cool toned.

Here's another lime green shade that isn't to florescent.

I would go with the Ferrari strengthen it and trim the back.

There's this wig; http://thefivewits.net/2011/06/goggle-star-boots-girl/ ; but it's not quite the right color. My view was that it'd be easy to reuse if you ever cosplay as Gumi again.

I beleive this wig though; http://cgi.ebay.com/Vocaloid-Megpoid...item1c1c781310 ; has the right color.

I see what you're saying with the gradient. I don't care much of the gradient. I'd like a solid color. I really love the wig you showed me (first link) haha but IDK how to buy that. It's all in Japanese. But oh darn that's the perfect wig! I don't even know how much that wig is in USD. DX

Oooh I do also like the second wig. (and it's in English!) I've heard good things about Arda wigs. Although I'm not too confident in my cutting skills. Especially with a huge hair cut like that.

I really love the first link you showed me! Does anyone know a translation?

Thanks for the links! yeah I agree. 1st link doesn't seem like the right color. I'll probably cosplay as Gumi again since she has a lot of unlimited cute outfits but I'm not completely sold on the quality.

I like the second link! but again.. as I said to Ani_BEE I don't like gradients. I like the top color of the wig. But don't like how it morphs to this weird yellow. I should have mentioned that in my first post. Sorry!

Thank you so much for your help!

Ani_BEE, I figured out why i couldn't buy it. There's no stocks of it. I found a way to buy things in English on that site you gave me. (there was an english button XD) But there's no more of this wig... => http://airily.jp/article/WS002-052

SADFACE! I was so excited to buy it too..

There's a English info page for ordering on the top right corner of the site navigation tabs.
http://airily.jp/page/guidance
For price just use any Yen converter. but there short wigs are around $40.



I had to laugh the Moe Mall one, got the colours right but in the wrong order.

I honestly thought the one you linked was brilliant. If not, here is a great, solid-coloured apple green prestyled wig. Then, there is this, which is a beutiful gradient wig that doesn't look awkward like most do. And if neither colours work, Here is an off-kelly-green version. Also, just a warning, this site's wigs are very cheap and good but shipping is around $20.

The wig I used for my ELR!Gumi wig came from here
http://cgi.ebay.com/VOCALOID-GUMI-ME... em45fb9c7cbb
it's a really awesome wig, and not expensive at all
I love the color, it's a very nice bright green,
and the last, underlayer of flips is a lighter, brighter green-- which adds a nice touch to pictures and such

@Ani_BEE: I'll probably buy a wig from there if that Airily wig store you sent me earlier doesn't restock soon.

Thanks for being so helpful!

Oh no first link doesn't work! &&& your second link. WOW I really like that wig. That's the first gradient wig I like. Yeah you're right.. a lot of gradient wigs do look quite awkward but this one doesn't. I don't like the 3rd link. That's waaay too teal for me. But second link... I might buy forsure. I don't mind it rounding up to $45+ that's probably the same price I'd buy in other places of the internet. Thanks for the share!!
