The Doctor(s)...wig suggestions?

Ok. I've tried looking around, searching for previous posts, and looked at nearly every 10th and 11th Doctor costume on this site. I haven't been able to find wig recommendations for either the 10th or 11th Doctors from Doctor Who. Most people seem to either go without wigs, or use their own hair. Neither are options for us, as I have shoulder length purple hair, and my husband is a ginger... As much as the Doctor seems to want to be a ginger, we want a touch more character accuracy.

References:
10th Doctor
11th Doctor

Help, please? I'm willing to style wigs, although I don't know how up to adding or removing wefts I am. I have a small to average size head, and my husband has a sort of large, squarish head. So no eBay wigs for him. We don't need them until Dragon*Con 2013, so we've got some time.

Arda has some new wigs coming this fall that would work for the 10th.

And I recommend this one for the 11th as you can reshape the hairline to fit Matt's hairline and style.

Ooh, thanks for the suggestions. I hadn't even looked at the Cady for an 11 wig...

I think I had run across a reference into that "coming soon" Arda wig before.

I've never even seen a lace front in person before... Do you have a tutorial for how to attach one of those, or how to make it look natural? Are they reusable... Won't the lace get gummy or rip if you use it multiple times? I tried searching, but, apparently my google-fu is sort of crap lately.

After stylin the wig (addign or subtracting hair) to trimt he lace down to 1/4" to 1/2" in a broken cut edge lit a zig zag and glue the lace down. You can use duo eyelash to secure the lace then go over it with foundation to help it blend it more to your skin.

I also recommend pin the wig to your hair first with tueppe clisp as the lace is not the strong to gold a wig on.

I recommend putting in a request for Dark Brown or Nautral Black shade to be made in the Cady and the new wig in their forums as they have the same hair colour.

The best tenth doctor wig I've seen around is this : http://dw-cosplay.livejournal.com/183315.html

Basically, it says that she took a cheap halloween wig (link in her post, above), washed it, trimmed away the excess and did minimal styling to it. It even has sideburns. Brilliant!
