Pokemon X/Y Nurse Wig: Arda Chibi

I'm planning to make a Pokemon Center nurse cosplay, specifically the X/Y nurse. Reference

I'm planning to use a Chibi from Arda Wigs, but I'm not sure on the color. This version of "Nurse Joy" seems to have a dark pink to red shade depending on which reference photo you look at, but I'm not sure whether the Salmon or Apple Red would be better. The wig also comes in Maroon, but I think that would be a bit too dark.

Other options include getting a lighter pink or silver wig and darkening with Sharpie dye. Any thoughts?

(Additionally, I know the Chibi can't be taken out of the pigtails, but does anyone know if the pigtails can be moved higher or lower? I'd like to make the pigtails higher on the head to help facilitate the hair loops. I would also consider getting a Leia if consensus agrees it would be a better base wig, though I'd prefer to stick with the Chibi.)

When the angle changes when you talk to Nurse Joy her hair appears to be pink (very obvious when the camera does a zoom-in and you talk to her face to face) so I would go with the lighter shade.
Really it probably doesn't matter too much though :3 No idea on the pigtails since I've never used full wigs!

Stick with the Chibi Ard has a video tutorial showing you how to restyle the chich for a base wig.

Her colour look like a salmon in the screen cap you took but her hair is a shade of darker pink.

Also when you style as wig wig product or glue the hair dose get darker as well.
