Hello there! I am making a GLaDOS (from portal and portal 2) cosplay. I have a hairstyle down, but cannot seem to find a wig for it.

This is the image of the hair I need, or at least something along the lines of it:

Oh, and I have a budget for said wig of about 30-35 dollars, but I'm willing to go a slight bit higher if I need.

Thanks!

Hi there! From what I can tell, it just looks like a stylized bob with hair thats a little longer upfront? I found a few, and they are super amazing quality (kinda hard to find with funky colors like grey) but here are a couple of ideas!

This one is the most expensive, but it looks the best. It will require cutting the back and fluffing the fringe though, but it has a skin top and looks nice.

This one is cheaper and already has a style... But could maybe be relaxed with a few washings if you could be bothered by that.

This one is layered and fluffy if thats the look you would like. With almost all wigs the fringe would have to be cut, and for the style you want the back as well.

Good luck, I hope these gave you some ideas! You might also check out amphigory.com, I really like their wigs, and I think the Cindy

would work well for this style. Best of luck! <3

I suggest going with an arda wig, possibly a Jaguar and then combing a bunch of fiber from the back of the crown forwards and trimming them to achieve your large bangs. Or even tease a Katinka. Your drawing is a bit rough, so I'm finding it difficult to interpret what exactly you want.
