Trainer Yellow Wig Help!

Hey so my wig for Trainer Yellow from the Pokemon Special series has just arrived, only I'm not sure how to cut/style it! Here is the link to what it looks like 82
Essentially what I was thinking of doing was layering it so that there was less weight on her ponytail (though it would look smaller) and then trimming the bottom so that it covered the wig cap. What do you guys think? I'm not exactly the wig expert in my cosplay group ^^"

If you wanted to go to the work, I suppose you could also rip out the wefts in the back of the wig and re-sew them in upside-down, so they face up instead of down. It'd help hide the cap better. You could also chop some of the hair off and make wefts out of those to stick in the back -- with that much hair, it shouldn't be too much of a problem to make a few and use the rest as short hairs at the bottom.

In the future please link an image of the style of hair you want to achieve.

Here a tutorial on how to do an updo.

And how to make wefts.

I know you wanted to buy a cheap wig if you got it off taobao but it's a lot of work to do on a wig.

If you end up frustrated or messing it up here another wig option and 'm sure you can find something like it on ebay/Taobao as well.
