I'm planning on cosplaying Pearl (newer version, so not from the pilot I guess) and I've already started my spear (paper mache and a wooden dowel, plus lots and lots of gesso
) and made her gem out of hot glue. My girlfriend is going to cosplay Amethyst with me.
The main thing I'm stuck on right now is how do I style a wig to look like Pearl's hair? I don't want it to be too extreme but I've never done something that pointy. Do I need to build it up over styrofoam or some other kind of understructure or will a thick wig styled with hair gel suffice? Also if anyone has any suggestions for the following:
-A good wig for Amethyst (doesn't have to be foot-length, thick mid-back length is fine)
-OPAQUE flesh-toned tights, and I mean REALLY opaque, like absolutely-nothing-shows-through them-opaque (or white, I could wear flesh-tone over them and double up)
I'd really appreciate it, thanks!
