Silvers Rayleigh wig

Hello,

so, i searched half of the internet and i couldn't find a fitting wig for my cosplay. There are just some low quality Santa wigs that may be okay.
And i have no idea how to make one myself ... and i don't really have the time and/or patience to learn it (I'm just learning how to sew right).

Does anyone here know where i could find a fitting wig for the cosplay?
Thanks in advance!

Option 1: Arda's Dude lacefront wig, which comes in Silver 063. However, it's $65.

Option 2: Arda's Glinda wig, which also comes in Silver. That one is $35. You would have to straighten it then add waves, or relax the curls down to a nice wave. If you buy some short wefts, you can make a faux hairline; follow Malindachan's tutorial on her deviantArt page. The wefts might also work to make the beard.

If either option scares you, try commissioning the wig. Good luck and hope this helps!

Do you have a link for those wigs? I can't seem to find them on Arda's page.
I guess i'd have to search something similar then in an european shop, since shipping overseas would make it even more expensive.

If i decide to make waves and curls into the hair, do i have to look for a specific material? I guess it won't be possible to change every type of wig without damaging it.

arda is heat-resistant so you can make curls w the boiling water method and hair spray. relaxing the curls would be a similar method
