Question Alessa Hair?

So i'm going to be cosplaying as Alessa from Silent Hill 1 (the game) and I'm not sure which hair color...because, most of the cosplays i've seen had black hair. Alessa actually has brown hair. So, i'm not sure whether to go for popularity (black hair) or go for accuracy (brown hair)

Dark brown or have a blended wig of black and brown.

Tip: If it is your cosplay, do not go by what's popular if you feel it is incorrect. Always choose what you feel is right

Another Alessa question :(

Thank you! I have one more question...

At first I was going to pick a short brown wig, since thats what I see.

In the wiki: http://silenthill.wikia.com/wiki/Alessa_Gillespie (under Trivia) it says that Alessa has long hair usually tied with a ponytail. In artwork, it gives the impression that Alessa has short hair.

Now, i'm not sure if I should do the ponytail, because i'm afraid that people will see me as the Origins Alessa even though i'm cosplaying as the Silent Hill 1 Alessa. I'm afraid of people looking at me as Origins Alessa, but I don't want to have the wrong length...any advice?
