Lace/lace front wigs
I've been cosplaying China so much recently with my cosplaying group that I think it's really time I should get him a decent wig, since the one I've been using is just one that I already had. And since I'm likely to be doing more than a few costumes for him, I think I want a better quality one, and more importantly, one that'll be easy to restyle.

For those who don't know, this is what China's hair normally looks like. But I'll also need to be able to take the pony tail out and possibly put it into pigtails as high as possible. I've been putting the pony tail into my temporary wig anyway, but would it be easier/look more natural with a lace wig? Can you get the same effect from a lace front wig?

Is it better to get a lace front wig or a lace wig? I'll be wearing it often, so I want it to last as long as possible, but I'm also interested in how natural it looks. I have a lot (hip length and thick) of hair to get underneath it, so sometimes I end up being rough putting it on, and our cosplay group is... boisterous to say the least. XD;;

Also, having never brought either types before, what are the type of things I need to look out for when buying them? A quick look on ebay has given me a price range of anything from £25 - £90, and I don't know what to look out for in a quality wig (trusted websites would be really, really great! I'm only looking on ebay because it's easy to search). I'm happy to style it, so I'm just looking for something a bit longer than shoulder length and straight.

Any advice would be great! I've brought plenty of wigs before, but like I said, I've never had a look at lace/lace front wigs before. Thank you!
