Hello all, I recently got the idea of cosplaying as Wilson, the first playable character of Don't Starve.

Even though it will be hard to find clothes for him, I think by far the hardest thing to do will be mimicking his hair. It reminds me a lot of Phoenix Wright's hair, only with three huge spikes as opposite to many small spikes. Only not really.

Really, the best thing I can do is give you guys references;

So... I'm not sure where to start, really. My first idea is that it may be better not not use a wig as a base at all and instead shape a solid wilson-hair shaped helmet, but upon thinking further, that may look ridiculous.

Thanks in advance.

Arda's Malinda wig (http://arda-wigs.com/products/malinda) and this Five Wits wig (http://thefivewits.net/2013/01/pegasus-buster-strong-soldier/) will work as a base for this style. As for the spikes, you may want to follow this tutorial (http://browse.deviantart.com/art/Yami-Yugi-Wig-Tutorial-337272600). You would create three foam/felt structures and adhere the wig fibers to them.
If you want a stronger widow's peak, follow this tutorial (http://malindachan.deviantart.com/art/Wig-Hairline-Tutorial-216211961). Hope this points you in the right direction. Good luck!
