Color comparison between Arda and Epic cosplay Black?

Can anyone do a quick color comparison between Arda's black and EpicCosplay's black for me? I'm not sure how much difference there can between two different black shades, but you never know. I am hoping to use an EpicCosplay wig with with the Arda clip on bangs so I can get two costumes use out of the same wig. Thanks for the help!

Well I can tell you right now that the fibers of the two brands are completely different. Epic wigs have a smooth glossy look to their wigs ("That's a wig!"), verses Arda's more matte and slightly natural looking fibers("Is that a wig?").

I am unsure if their black is blended with any other colors or if its solid jet black like Epic's. But in case its not, maybe you could use that wig-shine removing technique to make your wig a bit more matte to go with the clip. Unsure of how successful of a match it'll be though.

^ Agree to the above about the finish.

For you purposes you could gloss up the Arda fiber to match with a shine product for hair. The black would be the closets match even if the shade is slightly off their both deep enough to the eye to look the same.

On a random note I've asked if EpicCosplay would make a swatch ring of their shade and if more people ask about it they might be inclined to so it.
