I'm looking to style a wig for this guy [IMG]http://vignette3.wikia.nocookie.net/fireemblem/images/3/3d/Sothe_(FE10_Artwork).png/revision/latest?cb=20160930101401[/IMG]

I'm thinking of using hairspray to part the spiky hair and create a visible hairline while the hair arcs down in the front. I narrowed my wig choice to 3 options and am looking to see which one would be the best for this:

1) [url]https://www.aliexpress.com/item/Pretty-cool-trend-short-curly-dark-green-NWG0CP60353-DG3/1926757113.html?spm=2114.search0302.4.26.ePERpB[/url]

This one's cheap, but would the hair be good for styling? Don't have experience styling cheap wigs.

2) [url]https://www.epiccosplay.com/apollo-13-forest-green-short-cosplay-wig.html[/url]

It seems bulky, but it says it can be straightened with a flat iron. Would there be any advantage for using this over 1)?

3) [url]https://www.arda-wigs.com/collections/short-wigs/products/jett-classic?variant=27836325190[/url]

This one seems pretty spiky already, unfortunately the dark green requires a backorder so I don't know when it'd be available.

Hello! I'd go for the Arda or EpicCosplay because they're easy to style. Especially Arda. I'd be leaning towards non-cheap wigs because long ones tangle so easily and are so hard to style.
Mind helping me for my A2 wig??

If I was to choose, I'd get the Nyx, but I haven't straightened long wigs before, so I don't have experience in that area :(

I know the first one seems dirt-cheap which is often a warning sign, but I've at least heard of MapofBeauty so maybe it's not so bad? At the very least you aren't out much if you do end up buying it and then having to get one of the others, so it could be worth a shot.

I almost feel like the Epic and Arda ones may be a tad too short? It's really just his bangs (or side?) that are longest so I guess you could maybe just add a weft there but for some reason I thought I remembered Sothe's hair being longer.

Really though I feel like you couldn't go too wrong with any of these, and I have experience with both Arda and Epic and they both style well. And there's not even that much styling you'd have to do beyond what a normal person would do for their hair anyway. I think of the two I prefer the Apollo though.

I think lulu might be closer to his hair, with just a little trimming/styling

The ones you chose are just to short, where his bangs are almost chin-length
