27th March 2014: Ravio Wig If I plan to match the in game colours, then coscraft seem to do a colour that's pretty close to Ravio, but will obviously need to be cut and styled. Most of the purple wigs they do aren't quite blue enough for Hilda sadly, otherwise I would nab both wigs from them.
27th March 2014: Hilda Wig Started hunting out a few bits for this costume, so that I can get started on it over the next couple of months. I can't afford to order them quite yet but it's been pretty trying to find a purple wig in the right colour for Hilda, but there are several of these on ebay (which are pretty close in colour) so I might get hold of a couple and try straightening them a bit. Hilda has slightly kinked hair at the bottom (although most cosplayers seem to do her hair straight - but it's not quite) so I'll see what those wigs are like mostly straightened (but keeping a little kink) and go from there. If it doesn't work/they aren't long enough I'll try again with a longer wig in a slightly off-colour. As I have ears (from Malon) and my head size isn't likely to change, early construction will probably be focused more on the wig, staff and moulding the crown/belt/shoulder bits, as well as Ravio.
