Ohana Matsumae wig?

Hi, there! I'm looking for a good wig for cosplaying Ohana Matsumae from Hanasaku Iroha.

Reference:
http://myanimelist.net/character/36184/Ohana_Matsumae

I looked at Arda's wig selection, but they didn't have a wig that was accurate enough. I also tried Epic Cosplay, Cosplay Wig USA, and Gothic Lolita Wigs. Nothin'.

I don't know of many wig stores, so I'm kind of at a loss. I DON'T want to buy a wig off of eBay, and I want the store to be based in the US so the wig will fit properly.

Any ideas? D:

What country is it based in? I have a rather large head, so nothing from Asia is likely to fit me. ^^"

Then yes you only options will be with Arda and Epic Cosplay then as well like meas most Asian based wig brands ware too small for me as well.


If you relax this wig wig steam you will get a similar wave style style and cut in the bangs

or you can add roller to this wig and pour boiled water over it to set the waves after it's cooled and air dried.

Taking another look at Arda's selection, I actually think the Ferrari might work with some styling. I would just need to cut it and add additional curls to it. My hair is practically an exact replica of this character's hair except for the color, so I would have a very good real-life reference to go by.
Do you have any experience styling the Ferrari? ^^"

It's nice but from photo's I think the Inigo is a bit thicker. I do think you will get as much poof from trimming the Ferrari wig out adding the hair you trim off back into the wig or with adding premade wefts.


if you wanted to go with 029 Dark Ash Blonde I'm using it in mat Natsume cosplay as a colour reference.

In that case, I think I'll get the Inigo. I don't have a lot of experience with wigs, so thanks for your advice! :3
