I'm planning a cosplay for the Witch
from the Left 4 Dead series. The wiki for her states that she has platinum blonde hair, which I can definitely see, but it's very dirty and gets darker and filthier the further down it falls. Here's a close-up
where you can see it better.
One wig i was thinking about getting (and cutting to the appropriate length) is this wig from Epiccosplay
, but if there are any suggestions then they would be much appreciated.
Mainly what I'm having problems with is figuring out how I would go about darkening and dirtying and messing up the wig in a way that looks natural (considering the apocalyptic setting). I don't want to make the wig into a total mess that looks cheap or lazy or just plain gross; what I want is for it to look appropriately gross, yet deliberately made to be that way for the cosplay. Purposefully filthy, if that makes any sense.
Also debating on whether it seems like it would be slightly greasy or not.
Somehow I feel that sharpie-dying wouldn't really work in the way I want it to, but after that I'm out of ideas. I don't mind if it's not permanent, as long as it's something I can do to the wig whenever I use this cosplay, as the Witch will be its only use. I don't mind if whatever I use rubs off a little bit (a LITTLE bit) on my top or skin because I'm going to look pretty gnarly anyway.
Any suggestions are appreciated!!! Thank you.
