Exclamation Which is best?

I am going to buy a Wig for Erza Scarlet Cosplay and I was wondering out of these look best for the character.

it really depends which version of her you are doing. personally i wouldnt go with either of those wigs. too cheap so it prob wont look correctly. i would prob buy a wig from epiccosplay just cause it will be better and then it will be less prone to tangling

its a learned experience that these wigs will last 5 times longer than an ebay wig. thats why its more expensive. id rather pay $40 for a wig that will last me 3 years than a 16 dollar wig that will last me maybe a con.
a wig is an investment. i cant really recommend a good ebay wig for cheap, hopefully someone else can.

Going to second investing in a quality wig. If you don't like Epic Cosplay, take a look at Arda Wigs. Try taking a look at Moemall and Fantasy Sheep too, I've heard good things about them.

I would third investing in a good wig IF you intend this to be a cosplay you wear more than once. I know from experience that cheaper long wigs die really easily, even if you're doing everything right.

That said, if you're only planning on wearing the costume for one con, a cheap wig might make more sense. It depends on your plans.
