I need help and advice for a fem Jack frost (RotG)
Post By Dawnstorm. 28/04/13, 03:17 pm

I'm planning on cosplaying as a female version of Jack frost from Rise of the Guardians for Wellygeddon this year for one of the days, but I have quite long hair (as in waist length), and I'm wondering if it would be better to go the wig route, and pin all my hair up, which I do for my fluttershy cosplay.
Or go the temporary spray colour route, which can be annoying too....

Wig route is probably cheaper.

So i need help finding a long, white wig for not much money

I would advise getting a wig. The temp spray color makes your hair crunchy and unhealthy. Plus wigs are versitile so you can reuse them many times c:.

I'd say wig too. It will look much better than spray-dyed hair.
Have a look at crazy sales http://www.crazysales.co.nz/search/wig/ and see if there's any wigs that takes your fancy.
http://www.crazysales.co.nz/i/fashion_womens_wigs_xc023.html this looks the most white
http://www.crazysales.co.nz/i/fashion_womens_wigs_xc017_gold.html this says gold but it looks pretty pale.

If not, the next step would be to look up for white wigs on eBay. Might be a bit risky if the shipping takes too long.

I've heard that fabric softener and vinegar can take the nasty fake-looking shine out of party wigs, so if you're really desperate you could try that??? 8D;;; But I think crazy sales might just be the better option in this case.

I agree with wig too. Temp spray stuff is so yucky and difficult to achieve white.
I recommend crazy sales wigs too. They're very reliable, fast delivery and cheap postage.

I add to the vote of wig... Spray colour is nasty and it wouldn't really give you a nice white colour.
eBay is always a good place to find cheap wigs but as people say the shipping can be tricky sometime, if you got something of eBay I would get it now to be safe - plus have a read through feedback and look at wigs that have detailed shipping time estimates like this

I personally think wigs should always be used unless your hair is exactly like the characters already without needing much done (like a little bit of hair spray is fine). I think that coloured hair spray you'll never get a nice looking coverage, so it just looks bad. With wigs it just sort of adds to the whole cartoony look (but then my hair is really thin and flat, so it looks bad, haha, and I may be addicted to buying wigs ...).
