Pirate Queen: When in doubt I tend to go with what looks closest to the actual in-game sprites (http://ggxlol.highervoltage.net/baiken/). For Baiken I tend to prefer a darker, but somewhat muted pink.

What wig you go with depends on whether you're planning on giving it a haircut. You could probably get away with not cutting Celena at all and just tying it back, though the hair at the front might be a bit thin looking. If you're planning on cutting it, go with the longer Cher 951 because it gives the stylist a better opportunity cut it exactly the length you need.

If you go with the Cher 951: I find New Look's hot pink a little garish... and it looks too purple under flash lighting. Although it might be a little too red I kinda prefer Henna Red (http://www.cosworx.com/product_image.php?imageid=333).

If you go with Celena: Sepia's hotpink is pretty accurate and is what I would choose.

Mikazuki-> A pain indeed! Thanks for the advice, I do like the length of that wig. But Crimson might be right it could come purple under some lighting.
Crimson-> It might be less costly if I go with Selena because I wouldn't have to cut it. But if I want to do the high pony tail I should go with the longer. I'm going to have search Toronto before I purchase either of them off of Cosworx though. ^_^

Pirate Queen: The old wig isn't that bad, maybe a new style would help it. I personally hate those cheep Halloween wigs. They don't have enough hair and it's just poor quality. I always get professional wigs. I normally chose my wigs that's as close to the character's color or better yet a realistic shade of the character. Whatever your comfortable with should be the chose you make.

Yeah!! There need to be more April's out there! Are you going to make her wheel too? I got mine comissioned, and it's awsome to have a nice big prop. Obviously the costume is really simple, but if you need any help, feel free to ask XD

Silverwolf-> Colour wise it's not that bad. But it got really tangled because of the wind last year. So I attempted to comb it out...which was a bad idea because it ripped out half the hair. But your right about Halloween wigs, they don't come with a lot of hair. *sigh*

ok, im almost done with my ky costume. the problem i'm having now is picking out a wig for it. i narrowed it down to the Elizabeth(short wig, no bangs) on the Cosworx site, but i'm not sure about the color. i have that narrowed down to the 613, the 24, or the 27s. any help?

Otakusapprentice:
The Elizabeth isn't much of Ky's style. I think it's a little too long for his style. Try looking for something with layers. When I got my wig, it didn't look too much like Ky's hair, I just combed it, cut a little bit more layer on the top and cut the back. I got mine in platium blonde. Have you checked out any beauty or wig shops around you? It really helps to actually be able to touch the wigs and examine them than rely on one single picture.

You could, but I don't think cutting hair is as easy as it seems. But then again, this is the profectionist in my talking. Maybe you could put more layers into another wig. I personally think the Yuri would definately work in the short hair with bangs section. It looks to me like it has the layers you want and just needs restyling. Roni and Lexi might work, too.
Hope this helps.

So, I wanna do Bridget. But, not the standard Bridget. I came along this image over the net and I fell in love with it. Its bridget, but Ive never seen this costume before:
http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v4...get/top816.jpg

has anyone ever seen this version of him and if so are there any other pictures out there or tips to figure out the different parts of this more complex version of our favorite feme-boy?
