Wig Advice- Sakura Haruno

I need a Sakura Haruno wig. I found one I really like, but my brother hates it. He says that the shade is off too much.

Here is the Ebay listing..

And here is a reference..

What are your thoughts? Do you think the shade is close enough?
And what wigs do you personally recommend?

Maybe just a little bit lighter......like a tad, otherwise it looks fine.

It really depends on your skin tone. If you think the darker shade would look better, I'd go with that The last thing you want is to look like a banana (pink can do it, it's terrifying)

My Sakura wig is a light pink with white fibers mixed in, something like that is okay as well, but I'd look up what kind of skin tone you have (warm or cool) and read advice on that.

A wig that looks good on YOU and is a shade or two darker is better than one that's 100% show color accurate IMO

Thanks, this helped a lot.. I actually have lightly tanned skin. I have tried on light pink wigs, and I never liked how they looked on me.
I guess I will try this wig out. ^^
