Yo! So I plan on cosplaying as Marina from Splatoon 2 and this will be my first time working on a slightly complex wig. Initially I was thinking about getting a lace front wig and using foam as a base to create the form and just layer the wefts on top, but I'm having doubts about that idea.
Instead what I thought of was making a hat instead to look like her hair, but that's where my next roadblock lies. I'm not sure how I would go about making the hat, keeping the shape, and using vinyl (suggested by a friend) for the shine nor how to get that gradient look to it. Any help will be much appreciated!

Here are some reference pictures!

Well first I'd check [URL="http://www.cosplay.com/showthread.php?t=367004"]this [/URL]recent thread that was put under Wigs. There's a lot of potential ways to tackle Marina's hair, but it's all going to depend on your budget, skill level, and time constraints.
