Periwinkle wig help

Hello!
So I want to cosplay as Periwinkle from Tinkerbell and the secret of the wings. I'm having the worst time thinking up solutions for her wig however.



It's gotta be long enough to style it up like that (obviously with tons of spray/gel/yay), have bangs and yet also be short in the back.

I was wondering if ardas Jaguar would work? Although I'm not certain of how well that one parts in the center :/

Jaguar isn't long enough. For Periwinkle i recommend on of the Punky style wigs as a base.

For colour I would go for Silver as the hair products will darker it slightly.

All those style you thin out in the back by hand.

I don't know if you're super brand loyal, but I am going to use Aphrodite in white from EpicCosplay

http://www.epiccosplay.com/12-classi...splay-wig.html

The mannequin doesn't make it look that good, but if you scroll down to the actual person wearing it, it looks like it could work for Periwinkle quite nicely, plus it already has the longer bangs in the front ^-^

as for the styling, a lot will be backcombing the top to get it to look nice and tall, then keep a layer to smooth over the top, spike the rest of the wig up (using got2be glued blasting hairspray, and maybe a little got2be glued style freezing gel on the tips)

Don't forget to blow dry the hairspray while still wet to get the style to "set" in place.

Hope this helps!
