wigs suggestions? ~multiple characters

EDITS:
Hello! I have a few questions about wigs. *sorry this may be a lot* i am going to Anime Central this year and looking to cosplay as

1) Marceline the Vampire Queen from Adventure Time (Im most likely going as the 2nd image here but I wanted to show her hair in different angles)
http://images3.wikia.nocookie.net/__...stocknight.jpg

2) Mio Akiyama from K-On!

3) Vriska Skerket from Homestuck (the 2nd image is what I'm going off for her hair, she's the 6th from the left, next to the one with the bulls horns)
http://images3.wikia.nocookie.net/__.../AGCloseSm.png

Now, I don't have much money so i was looking to buy two wigs at the most, and maybe use my natural hair if I have too. (which would possibly be for Vriska) I don't want a super long floor lenght wig for Marceline because I'm a wig noob and I don't want to spend money that I should be using for school.

A friend of mine suggested this kind of wig awhile ago: as a Vriska/Marceline wig. The two have similar shaggy/ hair with side bangs.What do you guys think? Does any one know about the seller or the quality of the wig? http://www.ebay.com/itm/FANTASY-SHEE...00334979213%26

Mio on the other hand has her hair in a hime cut with blunt side bangs. are there any wig suggestions for those?
thank you again!

You a little all over the place on this one. My question is are you looking for just one wig to cover these three and in what order are you going to wear them?

Chance are you will need two wigs to pull off these three.

I like the Fantasy sheep wig for Vriska/Marceline because that bangs on it are long enough to style to the side of your face for Marceline and style back and trimmed for Vriska later.


Mio on the other had has straight sleek and full hair in a Hime cut, much like Yuuko from XXXHolic with blunt trimmed ends. You best to get a second wig for her if you can get your hair to look like that.

I didn't realize how bad I typed all this stuff out! Sorry!
I'm debating on what wigs I would buy for the characters. I'm short on funding so I want to maybe buy two wigs at most. I was even thinking of using my own hair for maybe one of the characters, most likely Vriska's since it is about that length and my hair is layered.

Acen is a Friday, Saturday and Sunday convention. I'm not sure on the order of my cosplays just yet.

I agree with your idea that Mio's hair is like Yuuko. DO you have any wig suggestions for that?

I was also looking into this wig for a Marceline (maybe vriska) does anyone have experiance with it? I get mixed reviews that the top is poofy because of the layering

The jareth-long is really a layered wig the works best for spiking style with ponytails.
Marceline got layers but not that high up of densely in that area.



Think FANTASY SHEEP has one for Yuuko if you contact them.


Here is a local seller option a well for Marceline and Vriska

Some more Mio options.

Just cut the side bangs in.

thank you for the options! I will definatly take a look through them is a 19 inch wig really that long? I thought it would be shorter? (refering to the Marceline/Vriska wig you recommended)
