Nope. Try to not go for party wigs. Or prestyled wigs. They are usually terrible quality..Go for sites like:
For L. This is the perfect length..All you need to do is style it a little..


You will have to cut the Near one though..As well as style it..But Party wigs like the ones you have been looking at....Even though they save you money, They look WAY horrible and you will never get the look you want.

Also you can't bleach wigs unless they're human hair so just gonna tell you that won't work right out. Don't waste your money.

This couldn't go into your other topic because?

Again, no. As I said, the cheap route is not where you should be going. As I stated in my last long rant, if you aren't willing to part with some money to get a quality wig, you shouldn't cosplay L, and your friend shouldn't cosplay Near.

Rule of Thumb - with seemingly simple Cosplays like L, don't be deceived - these are actually the most difficult cosplays because they're so detail oriented. You are going to be one of about a million L's at your con because a lot of people get sucked into how easy it seems to be to cosplay him, but they all want to go the cheap route, so they all look terrible. I saw a ton of this at Anime Central 2008. DO NOT DO THIS.

yeah generally try to stay away from party wigs like this because they are too shiny and photograph horribly and have been known to shed. for a good quality shorter wig it generally should be between $20~$30 dollars each. try to find wigs that are made from kanekalon fiber as it is the best quality synthetic fiber
