I've been hoping of cosplaying Aira from Green Legend Ran for quite some time now, but i'm having problems with her hair (this is a major portion of the costume, since she is known as the 'silver haired maiden', and it's apparently quite silvery)
i got close last year when a costume shop nearby ordered a couple in for me to look at, one was moderately priced and one was too expensive for me at the time, i never got to see the expensive one, but from what i heard the less expensive could Not have passed as silver.
the trick is, everything with a 'hair' texture is, well...grey. maybe a silvery gray, but not silver. or its a really light blonde color. either way- close but no cigar, ya know?? the only things i find that are *silver* when i search online are those metallic ones, and that's no good either.
i'll be doing the costume in the outfit she's wearing when she sees the bishops, so her hair is down, (slightly longer then shoulder-length) and she's wearing a big tall crown/hat.
basically, does anyone have any ideas?? should i keep looking? pan out some money and just buy a majorly expensive but quality wig? (since the rest of the outfit will cost next to nothing) or should i just spray my hair with silver hair spray? (since i can stock up now on halloween stuff)
*Oui*- and if i do have to spray my own hair, does anyone know where i can find some tips on keeping it in my hair and not everywhere else?
THANKS! i've been dying to do this costume forever, to the point that now it's just stubborness that's making me ask for help!! lol
