As the title suggests looking for some advice on dante's hair, ive got a DMC4 version costume and props sorted already and the only thing left is the hair

Ive been toying with the idea of spraying my hair silver/white or getting a wig and havnt been able to make my mind up so i thought id ask if anyone else can recommend either a good Uk based site for a wig or hair spray colour that they have used

Get a wig. In truth, unless you can style your hair similarly to Dante's hair, a wig is your best bet. Dante's wig isn't terrible in terms of requiring special treatment. It doesn't need spiking, just a brush down here and there. Wigs/hair can make or break great costumes. It's generally better to use wigs, as I hate to see great costumes broken by bad wigs/hair styling.

I second a wig. The spray on color thing will be uneven of a color, smears on you after a while and.....it just plain looks tacky in my opinion.

As Technowraith said, his hair isn't hard at all. At most, you'll need to trim the wig a tiny bit.

Thirding a wig. Also style it... a lot of people just buy the short wig and call it a day. You do have to style it.

For inspiration take a look at these. http://www.flickr.com/photos/ensui/3079218908/in/photostream/
