purple or black wig? whaddya think?
I had a fall at work and broke my shoulder blade, so my current costume (which has huge heavy anamatronic gauntlets)may have to take a back seat.

i got 2 costumes lined up but one is kicking my butt as i look at a wig, (my previous wig experience was buy it and put it on a Friends head )

i plan to do kogarashi from kamen no maid guy

however i am looking at wigs and cant decide..

purple or black?

black wig : http://www.coscraft.co.uk/charlie/336-charlie-in-black.html (is there a way to add a purple tint?)

purple wig dark : http://www.coscraft.co.uk/alex/301-alex-in-deep-purple.html

purple grey?: http://www.coscraft.co.uk/charlie/202-charlie-in-greyish-purple.html

also would i be better off with a wavy one like the charlie,or go with a straight one ( if someone could point me to some way of making those huge bangs in the back or add volume to it somehow..

so yeah.. scratching my head right now

I'd say looking at various pics, to go with a black wig. Purple for wigs is a bit to light normally for his hair colour, and it looks more black with a purple tint.

Out the wigs you listed, the black Charlie seems to work the best, but I think a straight wig like Alex would suit the character more. (Or, if you prefered how the Charlie looked, you could try the hot water method to straighten the wig slightly to not be as wavy?)

Pick the wig that best suits how comfortable you are with dealing with wigs in general. Since a longer straighter wig may require you to cut the side bangs in, whereas another wig may already have the wig styled with them and be easier for you to work with.

Hope this is a tiny bit helpful, and sorry about shoulder blade man. D:
