Splatoon 2 Marina Hair

Yo! So I plan on cosplaying as Marina from Splatoon 2 and this will be my first time working on a slightly complex wig. Initially I was thinking about getting a lace front wig and using foam as a base to create the form and just layer the wefts on top, but I'm having doubts about that idea.
Instead what I thought of was making a hat instead to look like her hair, but that's where my next roadblock lies. I'm not sure how I would go about making the hat, keeping the shape, and using vinyl (suggested by a friend) for the shine nor how to get that gradient look to it. Any help will be much appreciated!

Here are some reference pictures!

Well first I'd check this recent thread that was put under Wigs. There's a lot of potential ways to tackle Marina's hair, but it's all going to depend on your budget, skill level, and time constraints.
