Exclamation Jack Frost Wig

Hey guys. I need some help/guidance.
I plan on cosplaying as Jack Frost from Rise of the Guardians.

http://collider.com/wp-content/uploa...rost-image.jpg

He's a simple character, right? So here's my agenda. I want to keep this cosplay as low cost as possible because I don't see the need to make this cotume's cost over $50.
Now, I've never bought a wig over Ebay before and I'm hesitant to mainly because the sellerss don't always address my questions and their English isn't the best out there so it's hard to articulate to them what I'm asking or need to know.

So I was wondering if you guys could help me pick out a wig. I don't want to pay more than $20 for one because again, it's a simple costume and hair style. $25 is the most I'm willing to pay. Here's some wigs I've found already.

1. http://www.ebay.com/itm/Future-City-...em43 ae0a7536

2. http://www.ebay.com/itm/130745690495

3. http://www.ebay.com/itm/180971109120

I know 2 and 3 are similar but I need to know which is the better deal.
So do you guys think one of these would work? Also, I don't want any wig that has any hair styling products in it like hair spray/hair gel etc.

1) first pic is stolen from a taboo seller, dont use it
2)none will be able to give u that side lift that u want.
the character needs to have that spray in his hair so u can style it btw, that side lift has to b sprayed in. none of the wigs u linked would b long enough/full enough to spike it w/o showing too much net

Jack hair is a super shorts boys cut with layers. The wigs you linked will be to thin to style the way you want and if you cut short layers into it you will end up with noticeable bald spot.

The nothing very simple about a boy's cut verses the bob your listing as most bos are style thinner and are not meant to be trimmed. They cheap because they are thinner so keep that in mind when ebay shopping.



This wig in sliver (very pale off white) is what I recommenced.

Or this wig in Silver if you happen to have a larger head.

and a few more options.

Because it's a simple costume with rendered details you want to get the wig right as everything else can be could be found a thrifts store and painted on for the ice effect. You will save money that way.
