KH2 - Axel Wig > What colour should I go with?

OK, so I'm planning an Axel costume, and have decided to go with Punky from Cosworx, but which colour should I go with?
There's a burgundy, a henna red and a party colours red.
Which red have others used?
Which red is the best?!
I can't chooooose!!

Thanks folks,

~Tiger

I used the party red color for mine and a few commissions.

I used Party Red and colored the roots with a burgundy sharpie to get the dark-light gradient

Oh duh, reference pics:

The thing is, many of the ref. pics I have look dark... so I'm just not sure what colour his hair really should be...
The party colour red seems kind of obnoxious, but I've seen wigs done in the party colour red and they don't look as bright as it does on my screen.

And burgundy sharpies for the roots eh?
I think burgundy would look the best too as opposed to black, which might be too start a contrast... but then I haven't seen any wigs done with black yet...

Ah yes.... the Axel wig, a true nightmare! (noh it's not...) Anyway... I'd go with the Henna red, and like somebody else said, make sure it's darker at the roots! It'll make it prettier!

I used one that's not from the internet so I can't help you further with that!

Good luck with it!

I think the burgundy sharpies blend better than the black...though if you really wanted to you could use back at the very base and then burgundy over that to get a longer gradient...depends on how much time you want to spend on it XD

Really the color is just what you like. I liked the Party Red because it's bright and stands out....a...lot....XD I'm actually going to be remaking my wig when I get back from Japan and will be using a Henna Red, but I'm going to be attempting to do some really fancy wig work, too XD so....yeah.
