I'm planning a Kiki's delivery service cosplay.

or

http://static.cospla...wisp-br02-1.jpg ( the wighead they use for this is smaller than a normal head..so the ends of the hair would more likely be chin length.

Obviously it would be in dark brown, :P


and I would have to trim either of them.
But I'm worried I might not like arda's pre-cut bangs.
I like the cosplay.com one more..But I hear better things about arda wigs...

opinions?
Or do you know of a better wig?
I like the bobs from gothiclolitawigs...But the closest thing they have is black. :c

To be honest the last one is perfect in my opinion.

The second one is a BIT too light and unless you have experience cutting wigs would not be a good starter one (if you do that's totally ok.)

For arda, they do have pictures just in case you are skeptical; just email them about cosplaying Kiki's delivery service (before you buy the wig,) and they should email you a good fit with pictures back. They did this when I thought about cosplaying Irabu and it was spot on.

I added this to the original post too but,
I also found this one - http://www.epiccospl...osplay-wig.html If I tilt it back a tiny bit it will be more chin length. o u o;

And I have cut a wig before. ^^

That one is better than the second one on the list. Also leave Arda open as an option; after you email them it should take few hours to 4-5 days for them to email you what style code as well as pictures of said wig and you can compare.

EDIT: I use Arda because the other option I use I have to personally style/do the wigs myself and I get really lazy.

http://www.animestuf...1-pr-24205.html You would need to trim the bangs up on this one, but it shouldn't be too bad.

Check out thefivewits.net - they have been at ACen the past 2 years and I refuse to buy wigs from anyone else other than them (unless they don't have what I need). Their prices are very inexpensive and their quality is amazing.

The color on this is a little iffy but, if you order before the end of the day, it's 25% off.

I like Arda wigs because they last REALLY well. Plus, I find they fit better than wigs I buy from other countries... Maybe I just have a big head. :P
