Poison from Street Fighter Wig

I'm planning on cosplaying Poison from Street Fighter.

I see most Poison cosplayers just wear a long, pink wig and call it a day. However, I want to go more along the style of Poison from Street Fighter X Tekken, not Final Fight.

I need some tips on how I would go about styling this. It has a bit of a Super Saiyan feel to it, but I really want an idea of how to go about just making the long spikes of hair and the bangs.

Should I get some wefts to sew in to make it more dramatic? Buy two wigs and sew them together?

Anyone have some styling products they highly recommend to get this crazy hair?

You'll need wig fiber that's spikable. Arda and certain Five Wits have good fibers. As does Ayanamisatoru from eBay. It would be easier to sew two wigs together to get the necessary volume, unless you can find matching wefts. Arda's Baby Pink looks similar to that shade, although possibly a bit lighter. It comes in the style Luthien, too. Hope this gives you some ideas. Good luck!

Ohhh the Luthien wig is a good suggestion. It also comes in different shades of pink besides the Baby Pink too.

I've seen Arda wigs spiked really nicely before, I think I might go for this wig.

OhhH! I just found a better wig on Arda! The Jareth wig, it has long bangs similiarly styled to Poison that I can probably just cut and style.
