Finding the right wig

Hey everyone!

So I'm working on my first cosplay ever and was gonna dye my hair but didn't think i could get it long enough in time for anime north. That aside I'm trying to cosplay as Gildarts Clive from Fairy Tail

So I'm here because i don't know what or where to get my wig from. I'm counting on you guys for beginner wig help as I've never had a problem with hair in the past . Thank you everyone in advance.

On of these wig would be nice if you want a natural hair line.

Would you say the Cady one would be acurate for hair half way down the back of his neck or too short, If cady is long enough im fine with that but if it's not i don't wanna waste the money.

It will depend on you head size. But for the length in the back I would go with the Matilda. Trimming is not horrible to to for a deginer you just t=have to take it slow. Also some people bring the wig to the hair dresser and wear it while they do the trimming. (with a refernce photo).


the techniques used here are the same.
