Need Help With Wig Color

I'm trying to figure out what color wig to use for Kanade Tachibana from Angel Beats!.

In some pictures it looks like she has light silver hair, but in others it looks like light blue.

So would it be better to go with a silver one like this?

Or a more blue one like this?

Any other suggestions are welcomed. ^^

are you doing the yellow/gold contacts for her eyes? having a wig with a blue tone to it will make yellow stand out a lot more against bluish tones since they are somewhat opposite warm and cool colours.

a silver/white wig will be easier to find but then you get a flat tone that may wash out your skin tone a lot and you'll need to compensate with blush/bronzer a little more when you do make up. you will have silver hair and gold eyes and look colder and harsher than if you had gone with a bit of colour to the wig, even tho that colour is blueish.

it's also better in pics, especially ones with flash, to have a bit of colour tone to the wig than none at all to keep from being just a big white blur and making the contrast too low to pick up any nice details in the pic. it takes more adjusting for me in photoshop if a character has white or silver hair and a white shirt or outfit than if there is a bit more colour there. the hair ends up looking on the blue or purple side when i adjust it to get more detail to show up anyways.

does this help you a bit more?

Oh, that's an interesting point you bring up. o:
I wasn't considering contacts at first, because I completely forgot about them, but now that you bring it up I think I will. xD
