Hey guys! Long time no post.
A few of my buddies and I are putting together a Dethklok group for Las Vegas Comic Con, and since... all of my buddies pretty much have no idea about cosplay, I'm helping them all with their costumes.
My only problem is, Pickles the Drummer and his cursed bald/dread combo.
My friend is going to shave all of his hair off for the part (although I told him he didn't have to, since I know how to use a bald cap, but he insisted so, I guess it makes the process easier). I've done my research, I know in essence how to make the dreads, but I'm not sure how to when they're not attached to anything. I was thinking at first to make each individual dread (but from what? Extensions? Making them on a wig and cutting them off and double ending them?) and attaching them with spirit gum. But that would be a huge pain. So what? Attach the dreads onto something else? What though?
I guess in essence I know how to... I just don't know how to put the two together. Or what would be the best things to use, or the best way to go about it. I want to use good wig hair, not wool like some people do. I'm pretty picky, I guess, but I really need some ideas or options.
TL;DR: I need some major help with Pickles' hair.
