One area of cosplay where I get lazy is my hair. I’m reluctant to wear wigs, let alone don a bald cap. Paying attention to every detail though – even your head – is what makes great cosplay. This bald cap tutorial by DeviantArt user BlackRabbitArtisan covers the basics and will give you a better understanding of a few different materials. She used thick latex, non-latex sponges, baby powder, a powder brush, and a head. She begins by covering the model head in latex:
Stipple the latex evenly over the head with your sponge. You’ll be building this up so don’t overload your sponge with latex or it will be lumpy. Either allow to air-dry or use a hairdryer to dry the latex between each layer.
