Not sure what wig style to use

My sister has chosen this outfit for me to make as her first cosplay. Not a problem, however that wig...

I am not familiar on how to get that 'pulled back' look on a wig, and wasn't sure if there were wig styles out there that automatically looked like that. I have found wavy wigs that are good for me to work with but the bangs do not look like that and I know I can't just pull the bangs back and yet I'm not sure how to style said bangs to look like that.

I've been searching for her wig since Halloween because that was the dead line I gave her. I just am not aware of any wigs that have that look for bangs or even how to style it. Does anyone have previous experience with wigs like this?

Wigs usually used for forehead-showing characters are lacefronts (or else, the cap thing under the wigs will show). Erm, Arda has this that will work, maybe.

If it's too dark, then you could try this: http://rirukuo.deviantart.com/art/Ho...-wig-307362430

(However, I wouldn't say it's the most affordable thing ever. But I've heard that Arda is reliable and has good quality wigs, at least.)

Another method is that you can get a normal pink wig and reweft it. I read a tutorial for that but I lost the link, unfortunately.

Damn thanks for pointing that out.

Let's try that one. It's not the outfit she's doing it's her alt, but the hairstyle is exactly the same. :3

If you're willing to shill the money, Arda's Matilda comes in Bubblegum Pink. Or, you could add a lacefront to a bang-less wig using parts of this tutorial. You would need the correct wig to do this, and only add the tulle. I don't know if you would have to vent wig fiber to the lacefront...

I honestly think that first wig is just perfect! I would attempt the other, if I had more experience with wig styling. However since I am a noob at wigs, I'd rather practice before doing something like that. However that arda wig is more than perfect for the style. Thank you!
