Hey everyone! So I'm trying to make a fake beard for a Merle Highchurch cosplay: [url]https://78.media.tumblr.com/51073da9c0bff9dc771a7d33e248d884/tumblr_or4xozBTh71qew3yzo1_500.png[/url]

There aren't many tutorials for fake beards online, and nothing for such a long beard that is more obviously fake? I was thinking (and I have no experience so I have no clue if this would work) that I could build off of elastic, or something similar, and make it out of arda wefts, but yeah not sure what the best course of action would be!

Thanks for your help!

No ideas myself, but pretty sure the photo you linked is Maphix on Tumblr, I follow her but not the show (podcast? I don't even know). So if you didn't know the source maybe now you can at least send her an ask about it, I think she's the type to offer info to people. I'm not showing that she's ever posted any reference material for it before though, the oldest post of hers on it she already has the beard.

Knowing nothing about faking facial hair I do wonder if you could just get a full wig and cut put of the cap off, then use elastic or something to hold the remainder around your face? Hers is so thick and curly that's kinda what it looks like to me.
