Zelda Wig Help

So I'm doing my first Zelda cosplay and I'm having a little difficulty trying to decide which color I'd like best! This is what I'm looking for as far as color :http://www.zeldauniverse.net/wp-cont...play_Zelda.png
I think her wig color is fantastic and probably the closest to being appealing on my skin tone.

I've heard the Godiva in #27 (http://www.amphigory.com/wigs_godiva.html) is nice and even the 27/33 version with low and highlights.

The Linda XXL is also another wig style I've looked into but the layers might be a bit difficult when it comes to dealing with the braids.

Any suggestions are appreciated!

that pic that ur using as reference is photoshopped so i believe that the wig isnt as dark as it. im leaning more towards the #14 as the 27 looks too red to me.

^ I don't see how that really matters, since OP said they said they liked the color they saw in the picture, not that they thought that whatever color the wig actually is might be nice.

I think the 27 is the closest to what's in the picture, though slightly darker. Arda has a Spanish Brown color that I think would work, and Epic Cosplay's Light Brown is even closer. If you're wanting to stick with Amphigory, though, I think 27 is best. :3

Her wig is from Amphigory.com in color 12. She added 4 packs worth of loose extensions to achieve the thickness, filled out the earlocks with matching yarn, and added the highlights in the front (color 24 from Amphigory).

You can find a FAQ on the entire cosplay that she recently uploaded here;

I saw her cosplay reposted (unauthorised, given that there was no credit.... although on other posts I saw that they listed credits sometimes) on another site and was looking for this cosplayer! Thank you

#27 is pretty red, but it would work, as TP Zelda does appear to have reddish hues in her hair in some artwork. I think #12 or #14 would be a better choice for you if you think a darker brown wig would look better on you.

Do you intend to modify your wig with extensions? If so, I would definitely recommend #12. It's really easy to find matching extensions for that color. The only extensions in #14 I've ever seen online are actually a much better match to #27.

I would avoid the Linda XXL, the layers will indeed make it difficult to braid and maintain.
