So, I'm working on a cosplay from scratch and I've come up against a problem: I've spent a fair bit of effort on it now and so I really don't want to get the coat I'm making stained with any coloured hair spray, gel or the like. I'm also not willing to dye my hair, permanently or semi-permanently for the cosplay. Sadly, my actual hair is otherwise perfect for the character but them's the breaks.
That all being said, does anyone have any ideas as to where I could find a wig that I could strip of colour and recolour with Sharpies in the following style: short, wavy and relatively backcombed.
I'm fairly doubtful there'll be a suitable wig out there considering the kind of half-hearted widow's peak his hair has but I thought I'd check to see if anyone knows of anything that might work.
UPDATE: Recycled an old wig and sharpie'd, blow-dried and hairsprayed the hell out of it.
