Wig and Facial Hair for Drachma

I'm looking to cosplay as Drachma from Skies of Arcadia. I found a few pics, but most of them are tiny and blurry. >.<

Sorry I can't find better pics, especially of the back. His hair is kind of pulled back into a cut-off ponytail, and the rest is kind of shaggy down on his neck. I might be able to take a screencap from the game itself if I needed to. Anyway, I need to come up with a wig that looks like that. I also need to find a way to do the eyebrows, beard, and mustache. My hair's been pretty short for most of my life, so there's no chance of me growing it out enough in time for the convention. Could I pull a wig back tightly enough without it showing the underside? Also, any ideas on how to do the rest of the facial hair?

You may want to look into facial hair appliances:

Keep in mind that some will look more realistic than others, specifically lace/netting backed pieces. Apply the pieces with spirit gum. Remove them with spirit gum remover or baby oil.

Thanks! I was having trouble finding information on beards and mustaches. Now I have to find one in white...

Also, does anyone know if you can pull a wig back somewhat tightly (for example: into a ponytail) without the underside showing? Or know of a specific wig in which you can do that?
