First cosplay look-a-like advice!

Hi, I'm new to cosplay and I've been working really hard on a costume from Shingeki no Kyojin/Attack on Titan. Since the uniforms are basically the same for most characters, I have yet to decide which character I'm actually going as for an upcoming con. I'm stuck between Mikasa Ackerman and Petra Ral. I love both characters equally and want to choose whichever I can pull off better. My hair is honestly the exact same color as Petra's however its about 3 inches too long. My facial features match Mikasa the best, and I have her greyish eye color and sharp features, as well as her height etc... But I don't really want to buy a wig if I can get away with it. For Petra I could also do a faux bob hairstyle if it looks realistic enough.

Just looking for some friendly advice. Thanks!

If you don't have any preference on character, I'd say go with the one that you look most like and buy a wig. Trust me, a wig is almost always the better option and as a person who didn't use a wig for their first cosplay (and my hair was longer than the characters so same scenario), you will probably kick yourself later for not wearing a wig. It's a bit of a typical newbie mistake.

If you really can't get a wig due to time or money constraints or something though, the false bob idea would probably work as a plan B.

^ That is an advertisement. Don't pay it any mind.

If you look most like Mikasa, I'd say just get a wig. Wigs are far more manageable and predictable for cosplays, and just look better in general. More full, more like a cartoon. In person it might look fine, but a wig looks a ton better in a picture.
