a sally's beauty supply store should have it, as well as some costume shops.

Word of Warning for spray colors... They like to flake all over your costume and, unless your hair is platinum blonde/white already, all silver spray'll do is frost your hair T_T (A little sprakly grey tinge, but nothing much)

I'm definately going to have to say wig...

I actually tried to spray my hair back several years ago. I'm blonde and was going for the Sephiroth look. I tried everything. Hairgel in both Chrome and White, then I tried the spray. PhantomThief is exactly right. I only tried my bangs and I had spray all over my face, my forehead, and my black shirt. I looked like I had metal dandruff (which isn't sexy, in case you were wondering). If you're after the WHITE white, a wig is the only way to go, I'm afraid.

If you're looking to cut and style the wig yourself, 2 things you always, always must make sure of.

A. The bangs are close to what you need. That means if the wig is meant to have long bangs, then get one w/no bangs or one w/long bangs. Short bangs that cover the forehead (Cleopatra-style) are hard to cut into a wig if they don't already exist.

B. Get a wig that's AT LEAST a few inches longer then what you need. For example, the wig that I use for my Hinata costume was initially mid-back in length and I cut it into her short hairstyle.

Other tips:

Just like w/make-up, less is more. You can always trim off more if you need to, but you can't put hair back ON a wig. So trim it slowly to make sure that it doesn't end up too short. If you're really worried about it, I recommend leaving it a tad longer, putting it on, then having a friend trim it up just a tad more. That seems to work well.

I like www.mywigstore.com for buying wigs, b/c they tend to have a lot of diff. styles.

The Alicia wig is your best bet, IMO ^^ I just got mine yesterday(ordered it about a week before), and I love it >D W/o shipping it's about $35 at Cosworx.com, and at Amphigory.com it's $38 -- but I think the shipping at Cosworx is more expensive... I bought mine at Cosworx because their wig heads were a bit more cheaper lol

http://forums.cosplay.com/attachment...0&d=1159586006 - What wig is that?

Also, I was thinking of getting an Alicia XL wig since the Alicia wig is too short in my opinion for KH2 Riku, but it looks like it's not a middle part. Is it a middle part and is the model just wearing it wrong?

For my Riku cosplay I just used the regular Alicia wig. It has a middle part with a really nice skin top.

Here you can see the length and the center part. Personally I love this wig. It is soooo nice! The length is completely up to you, but the plain Alicia wig has a middle part. You could always switch the part with a little heat and patience if it happens to be on the side!

As for the Alicia, I have the Short version and it came with a sidepart (which made me rather sad). However, as Desty mentioned, on the longer wigs I suppose the part is changable

Oh, the regular Alicia wig seems to be long enough in Desty's pic. I guess I will just get the regular one. Thanks for your help ^_^

I'v been hearing of the Alicia wig being used in this and thats probably what I'm going to go with.
However, seeing as you CAN use a straightener with your wig
AS LONG AS IT HAS DIALS (!!)
I'm thinking you'd still be able to get that chunky, spikey, insanely straight look am I right?
Or am I wrong. O_o

As thread is sorta oldish, I thought maybe I should add my two cents.
IVY IS FREAKING AWESOME FOR RIKU!
Seriously, all I had to do was trim the bangs a little bit and take some length off the back. It could easily be fluffed up or spiked. And I just can't get past the fact that bangs are so perfect. Plus its cheaper than the K. Beast, even though its longer.

It's kind of expensive - and this thread is old as dirt, but I've always felt that Amphigory's Kanekalon Beast wig would make a really nice Riku wig with some straightening and some bang trimming. It comes in white so you could dye it whatever color you wanted.
