I'm going as Near for the anime expo and i don't know whether to spray my hair white or just buy a wig. And, should i wear a white t-shirt underneath the pyjamas? :3

Definitely use a wig. Colored hair spray doesn't look realistic, rubs off on your clothes, and really is only good for fun Halloween costumes and similar stuff where you aren't really worried about the quality. Have you looked at any wigs yet? Do you want to try to style one yourself, or do you want one that comes pre-styled?

As for a white t-shirt/undershirt, this is kind of annoying me now because I don't remember and I can't figure it out! If you have any of the manga volumes with Near, the art book, etc., try looking through those. I have nothing with me right now, and I can't seem to find much online that shows his outfit well. I think there's official art both with and without the undershirt, but I'm not really sure what's 'correct.'

Wig definatley, as Juliapop said, and I think the T-Shirt vs no T-shirt depends on if you're worried about someone seeing something you don't want them to see under your PJ top. If you're worried about people seeing it under the PJs, you could try using a V-neck T-shirt, since those seem to be easy enough to find (in my area at least).

I don't think he's wearing a V-neck in the illustrations that show him wearing a t-shirt. Look at this (http://media.photobucket.com/image/death%20note%20near/sarairine/wallpapers/wall_near2.jpg), although it's kind of hard to tell. That picture of him is in the artbook.
I don't think Near would be likely to wear a V-neck, anyway. :rofl:

Me and my group were having a similar problem a couple weeks ago. Try using a white undershirt(like a Hanes t-shirt or even a tank) for underneath. And definately a wig.

As everyone's already said, this cosplay definately needs a good wig, if this isnt a dead thread i'd like to advise you look into the wig in this link:

this one ---> http://www.fm-anime.com/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=92_270&products_id=257&zenid=aed7f8586779c2083eae154673cec6a8


It's really high quality, it comes pre-styled, and it's made of really good fibers, I truthfully buy all of my cosplay from here and www.cosplayhouse.com you should definately look into these...

Anyway, good luck with your cosplay, I hoped this helped d(^w^)b
