Trying to find perfect spiking wigs (Cloud & Sora)

I've been looking around some of the other threads here, but it seems like they were all pretty ancient (2008 and such) so I decided that I wanted to make sure I was getting up to date information through my research.

I am looking for a base for a Cloud and a Sora wig.

I've been looking around and I've found a few that I'm interested in. Let it be known, that I'm doing a Wallmarket Cloud cosplay, and so, there will be braids involved.

Like so...

But since is so pixelated, here's a few pictures of cosplayers who have wonderful wigs.

You get the idea, yes?

So what I've found so far are these.

These first few, I was looking at long ones, to braid the ...braids... into the wig itself.

Or perhaps even

And with the next few, I was thinking of getting shorter wigs, and finding extensions to braid and then attach.

(I'm really leaning towards this first one, of course, the problem is finding matching extensions)

As already mentioned, I'm also looking for a Sora base wig.

I'm sure that most of you knows what the hair looks like, but for reference.

And these are the ones that I've been considering...

I would love some suggestions and input, Especially from anyone who has worked with any of these wigs before, or if you've cosplayed either character. I've especially love suggestions on specific colors, because sometimes the colors are not quite what you see on the screen. Any help or thoughts would be great! Thank you!!!

I actually would go with getting two Jareth (one for each character) and one long clip on ponytail to make the Wallmarket twin braids for Cloud.

The Jareth is the thickest Punky style wig you can get. And the long clip on is thick enough to cut down the middle back side to create two sections for two braids.
