Barbossa's beard

Hello all, I'm making a cosplay of Captain Barbossa and I was wondering what I should use to make his beard. I am crossplaying so just growing a beard wouldn't work and I need to find a way by Katsucon, so please help!

You want to use something called "crepe hair" It's pretty common stuff in the world of stage makeup. You spread it out to the desired thickness, straighten it with a cool iron if needed, and starting at the base of the natural grain of the face, apply hair one small layer at a time with liquid latex, moving upwards against the grain. The hair should be applied overly long and then trimmed to the desired length and style with sissors after you've applied it all.
