wig help :S
im hoping to do a meilin cosplay sometime soon, but im kinda stuck with her hair.
ref: http://i274.photobucket.com/albums/jj249/AnimeLover99919/MeilingRaeandLiShowron.jpg
ive got a pretty long black wig, and ive tried tying it in high bunches, but the problem comes with the netting, it just makes the wig look really bad when theres netting at the back..and as ive got kinda red hair, it shows reeeally bad >.<
so ive had a look online for pre-styled wigs like this, and only came across one...which was around £45 (im on a small budget) or i could buy a cheap black wig, and 2 clip in hair exstenisons...which turns out slightly cheaper than the wig...

im really after peoples opinions, or if youve got an idea you may think is better ^^ or if you do wig commisions and are willing to help ( im kinda poor so ive got a £30 limit i guess :S...which is a bit too little for a commision)

any links/help greatly appreciated xxxxx

if you're on a small budget, then the wig and extensions are your best plan. Ideally sew the wefts onto the wig.

take a look at http://www.cosplayisland.co.uk/tutorials/wigs you should find all the great info there!

There is always room for cake

Classic wig problem, don't worry about it hun. I'm with GunstarVixen all the way, sewing wefts to cover up the 'bald' bits is the easiest and smoothest and more realistic looking way to do it. You could sew wefts to cover up the bald bits, or you could use extensions to create the plum hair style over something round and then sew THAT to the wig and just have the wig in bunches (it sounds silly, but it can also work). It depends how you want your wig to fit together and what's best for you.

Alternatively if you're just worried about your colour showing through you could try to wear something underneath it to stop the black showing through. Though to be fair, this will probably look quite bad up close.
