I have 2 Leia buns bought from here: https://www.etsy.com/listing/59990615/princess-leia-hair-buns-star-wars?ref=pr_shop (there's a pic of how the buns are attached on the listing) but I want to buy a wig to attach them to. I'm looking at Epiccosplay wigs in walnut brown (that's the color that matches my buns best), so from these options here: https://www.epiccosplay.com/shop-by-wig-color/brown-wigs/walnut-brown-wig/ which wig would be best?

Sorry, but your second link gave me an error page on the site, so I don't know what I was supposed to look at.
They buns from the first link looks very dark though.

Sorry about that. Let's try the second link again: https://www.epiccosplay.com/shop-by-wig-color/brown-wigs/walnut-brown-wig/ and the picture on the etsy listing is not the color I got. The person who made the buns looked at the brown wig colors on epiccosplay & she says the "walnut brown" is the closest. Please let me know if the link works now & what wig you think would work best for attaching the buns. Thanks.

Works now. Smile

Color looks fine. But style is harder. Ideally you want one with no bangs and a center part. Gaia has a part, but a serious fringe over the forehead. Diana looks to be off-center, but maybe only the forehead hair. In general the lack of a center part all the way complicates it since the wefts will be harder to hide when you part the hair.
