Reccomendations for a Duck wig?

For a small con I want to cosplay Duck from Princess Tutu. I will be making her duck-themed outfit like the one in the picture below. The center-piece of the cosplay is the wig. I have some trouble finding the right one. It's mostly due to the color and finding the right one.

Ebay listings are preferred. I am looking for accuracy over quality. Take into consideration that the wig also needs to be cut and styled when searching for an option.

Please leave links, too.

thanks!

Quick question- are you looking for a pre-styled wig, or a wig that you want to style yourself?
I can find no prestyled wigs for this specific version of Duck (lots for Princess Tutu) but if you're going to do your own styling (which I think you are) I would recommend getting a short wig and then sewing in wefts for the braids.
This picture of duck shows her hair as being very orange, but I know some cosplayers prefer a more muted pink/salmon color for her like this wig
Unfortunately, using Ebay for this wig may not work, because the color is so odd, and you will most definitely need wefts.
I would suggest to you arda's A022 (peach) as that's the closest thing I can think of that you can get without dyeing a white wig. You could get one of the short wigs (lulu, or the magnum long) and then either get a pony tail extension to harvest wefts from for your braid
If you're eyes are set on ebay, all I can suggest to you is to get a white or blonde wig and extensions and dye those suckers with sharpies to get your desired shades.

What is your budget exactly?
I was just doing some of my own wig searching and the "classic orange" by cosplay.com's wigshop is actually the closest orange tone I've seen so far. (i'm pretty sure the demo wig's color is classic orange? I'm not sure, so you might want to ask Admin if this wig color interests you)
Extensions are $10 here
So total that would be $36? There's a sale going on right now apparently so that'll save you some cash. Coscom's wigs aren't as nice as arda's wigs, but you were more concerned with accuracy, so I would definitely tell you to lean towards Coscom because that color is very close. Peach is also not too bad looking, if you're afraid of your wig looking too orange. I have no experience with either of these wig colors, so if you want better swatches I'm sure there are other cosplayers on here that'll help you out there!

I would suggest going through this tag on ebay as this is where you'll probably find the right color~
http://www.ebay.com/sch/i.html?_odkw...at=0&_from=R40

Then you can choose one you like. Other then that I'd say go for Arda for sure~

thanks for the tips!
I searched this site called Lucaille and I found the PERFECT base wig for my cosplay!
http://www.lucaille.com/?product-1236.html

PROBLEM IS, there are no clips available! I dont know what to do, I'd hate to buy some other clip that will be the wrong color! I need help hunting one down ;; or I could buy arda's clip if it;s accurate but it's hard for me to distinguish the difference in color especially light colors.

AND REMEMBER. the clip has to be fairly long because Duck's braid goes down below her butt!
