I have been searching and searching to no avail! I am looking for a wig for the corset version of Elizabeth from Bioshock Infinite.

Here are some cosplayers that have successfully styled a wig to be like this: [URL="https://i.pinimg.com/564x/da/59/04/da5904919c6d7657bdf39bf8ee83991d.jpg"]ONE[/URL], [URL="https://cosplayinabox.deviantart.com/art/Bioshock-Infinite-Elizabeth-Makeup-and-Hair-Test-390137198"]TWO[/URL], [URL="https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wcDC46TYoWI"]THREE[/URL]

I am looking for any and all tips or suggestions on wigs I can purchase or style to look like this. I've already butchered one wig trying to style it (though it was a $10 Ebay wig), so any videos, tutorials, or tips of your own are much appreciated.

I am thinking of purchasing an Epic Cosplay Wigs wig (maybe the [URL="https://www.epiccosplay.com/shop-by-wig-style/short-wigs/selene/"]Selene [/URL]or [URL="https://www.epiccosplay.com/shop-by-wig-style/short-wigs/chronos/"]Chronos[/URL]) and then styling it but I have no idea which to by or where to even begin in the styling department. I really don't want to waste any more money so I only want to do this if I know how to style it before buying. I would much prefer to buy an already styled or closely styled wig. The Chronos would work, but I'd have to cut it to be the right length and I don't think I can add the layers back in if I tried. The Selene seems to have bangs too short to restyle into side bangs.

I have found [URL="https://www.rockstarwigs.com/collections/hologram-12"]this Rockstar Wigs unit[/URL] that is pretty close and appeals to me, but it's a bit out of my price range (hoping to stay under $40) and it also only comes in a really shiny black or a light brown and I am needing it to be dark brown. I've also found [URL="https://www.wig-supplier.com/short-rinka-bob-style-dark-brown-synthetic-wigs-for-women-with-air-fringe-bang.html"]this [/URL]one, but it seems thin/sparse and is not layered.

Seriously, literally ANY help is much, much appreciated!

Of what you've already looked at I think the Chronos would work fine. Her hair's not actually that long so trimming it a bit wouldn't put you in any danger of losing volume I don't think. Plus it just looks like it's a bit layered/fluffed at the bottom so I don't know if you'd even need to trim anything, just use it for styling?

If you aren't getting anywhere with Elizabeth though you could always try looking up stuff for [URL="http://www.cosplay.com/showthread.php?t=357730"]Max[/URL] from Life is Strange, they've got incredibly similar hairstyles and since LiS is a more recent game you may have better luck.
