Question Wig help for three cosplays!

In 2013 I'm planning to cosplay Nausicaa (from Nausicaa of the Valley of the Wind), Misty (Pokemon), and Temari (Naruto: Shippuden)

I've gone through several of the Temari wig help threads already and some said the Chibi from Arda and just separate the two ponytails. I was going to go ahead and use that unless there's another alternative? I'm not scared of styling either. Practice only makes you better.

For Misty I was going to use Arda's pumpkin color I just don't know which wig style to use to get her side pony...

And for Nausicaa... I have no idea... Her hair isn't exactly shoulder length though it wouldn't be a problem if it was and I can't pin her hair color down either... It's not red but more like a reddish-orange almost.

The Chibi from Arda is great but will need some extra wefts to sew in to make the horizontal part for her hair as well.

Pumpkin or Light Copper red are great orange shades. I recommend this wig you just pull the ponytail to one side thicken it up with the clip-on wefts if need be.

Arda's Warm Light Brown or Ginger is her shade.

I too would recommend a Chibi in Light Blonde for Temari. That's what I used, and I know you can sew in another horizontal weft (I didn't though and it worked okay xD) though it's not too obvious if you don't. I just basically took mines out of the ponytails, seperated it into four, then cut them and backcombed to get them spiky. I have some photos of it if you want to see them

As some who is cosplaying two of the same people I too recommend arda chibi in light blonde and use Animegirl13 method. It's very easy! Also for misty I suggest Arda Magnum in Pumpkin and a short weft in pumpkin. It is what I'm going to use. Once I sew the weft in and use holding spray or spike spray to make it curve plus spike the ends.
