All good info.

I prefer super/hyper cardiod just out of frame on a boom on a c-stand. Then a wired lav as 2nd choice. You could hide the mic in the hair too to elim that off-axis tone.

Peter mention reflection control. Cheap packing blankets on the floor and just out of frame do wonders.

My selection of mics usually has to do with the amount of time I have for setup and if I'm travelling solo. A lav for run-n-gun is great. If I have time and budget, I'll bring a c-stand, boom, & supercardiod. Studio work like the shot you propose would be a boom setup for me.
