Need help finding Merida wig!!

I'm in search for a Merida wig, I really want to cosplay her since my little sister won't let me dress her up...
Highest price I'm looking for is 45-50
Nothing to fancy, as long as it has the right colors.

^ I do love the Hennah Red shade.

I used it for my first Red Queen wig.

Edit: just though I'd add to this but here and actually photo of the Diana 3 wig.

It's not as full as the Mona Lisa Lioness 1218 wig.

That wig looks perfect! Ani_BEE would you say the henna red shade in real life is more an orange red or a true red?
Because I love the brightness of the shade from what I've seen in photos but sometimes it looks more true red whereas the fire red shade is more on the orange side.

The henna read shade I linked two post up is very acurate to what it looks like. It a saturated natural red I what I call it.

I just order this this myself to tease the crap out of.
http://arda-wigs.com/collections/mer...-pumpkin-ar011
The also has dark copper red which is a warm red that more saturated then 130 Henna but less saturated then Henna Red from Newlook.
http://arda-wigs.com/collections/mer...copper-red-015


I had also order the Mona Lisa Lioness in Light Ginger which is a natural ginger shade. Because it Kanaolan I'm thinking of experimenting and dye it with sharpie in orange to get for of a fire orange like the Disney park ones (their not henne red but their not ginger either). Plus I waiting on things so why not experiment.

But this is the final wig the photo is a bit saturated however.
http://www.cosplay.com/photo/3212321/
Better representation but look a little darker.

I did get it from this seller and their other half wig as well to experiment on first.

I bought the second piece to add length as well.

If you don't mind waiting, Arda's new wig is meant for her when teased~ I found this on their tumblr:



EDIT: OH, I didn't realize Ani_BEE already posted it $:

Also Arda has more photo's of their teased wig on there site from the back as well to who they got the volume. ^_^

http://arda-wigs.com/collections/mer...-pumpkin-ar011

I also order a Glinda as well for the top of the wig so that I keep more of the curls in with the add hair. Also because I'm not sure Merry would be restocked in time for August.

Thought I'd add this up! This is a Diana 3 in Fire Red, which is a more orange shade than Henna Red, but it matched the movie almost perfectly. I was there during the midnight premier!

It's warmer! Henna red seems to be darker than the doll, so I went with the lesser of the two evils. It's barely even lighter than the Disney Store Merida wig.

I know, the Merida sore wig and the doll is more red. Arda's Pumkin shade is less orange in person. I find i will look more orange in photo's as most camera over saturate colours.

Light Copper Red is a much more saturate orsange in person because it's a mix of yellow a true red. *_*
