Angel from Borderlands 2 wig?

I'm planning on doing an Angel cosplay for Naka in March, but I'm having a hard time finding a good wig.

Here's a reference pic:



Mainly because of the half of her head being shaved thing. I figured I could just get a normal wig and shave down one side a bit but I don't want my hair to show through or the netting.

Thoughts are greatly appreciated D8

I doing something like this for a costume. For this character I recommend sewing half a wig to a bald cap then paint on stubble with a stippling sponge to get that shaved look.

Kryolan bald is my favorite brand for bald caps.

You want the latex one as you can sew into it to tack stitching.

Small pore sponge.

You also may want to get a bottle of latex as well to seal you sticking so that the latex won't tear with use.

Yo glue the cap don you can use either Spirit gum or Pro-aide (Pros-aid).
