The Beehive

Okay so I want to be Elvira for Halloween. I'm going to fix up one of the out of bag Halloween costumes for it, but I don't want a cheap ugly Halloween wig.

Does anyone know of any pre-styled Beehive wigs? Or how to do a beehive and what wig to start with?

/reference since I don't think everyone know who Elvira is

thanks ani, but i don't really like any of those. :<

I'm thinking about going with either this amy winehouse one and straightening it with a hot water method or this generic one and taking off the spider and trying to paint the white strands black.

which would be easier to do, straighten the winehouse wig or color the white strands with a marker?

You won't be able to get those while strips truly black and cheap Halloween wigs don't take to being messed very well. If you're set on one of the two, hot water straightening the Amy Winehouse one would be best. I personally like the second one Ani linked the most.
