I've tried a few different methods for my Salieri cosplay, but the problem is that plain makeup isn't realistic enough, and I typically do the "cutting up black hair" method because it actually does look good as well, but it's SO itchy, and I think I need a better adhesive. (But please don't say lash glue, because it's a bitch to get off!) I've been using a gluestick and hairspray; it works OK, but I imagine there's something better out there.
So, other crossplayers out there, how do you do beards? And if you use the "cutting up hair" method, what adhesive do you go for? (And how to minimize the itchy-ness, or is that just an "unavoidable sideffect", per se?)
