Hey there, I'm putting together a cosplay of Hal Emmerich from Metal Gear Solid 1, and I'm at a loss for which wig to use for him. I know he'll take a lot of styling, but I want to find a good base.

Reference pictures are here:

I think your link is being removed due to low post count. Hal's not exactly hard to find pics for though so I'll [URL="https://www.google.com/search?q=hal+emmerich&source=lnms&tbm=isch&sa=X&ved=0ahUKEwjQgYzA5czbAhWHCTQIHZqmDPIQ_AUICigB&biw=1269&bih=748#imgrc=_"]link some[/URL] for you, though since later games are higher definition I won't limit it to just MGS1.

His hair's fairly "normal" so while I'm not in the business of regularly styling men's hair I can't imagine it'd take much more than some brushing and fluffing, and then cutting to length as needed. Specifically from Arda I think either the classic or Silky Hansel, Greta, or Benny would work fine, Great would require more styling work since it's overlong but leaves you more to play with for his pseudo-mullet.

I'm not familiar with lacefront wigs but I suppose that could be an option with his hairline. Your only options there seem to be the Ken or the Bucky, which apparently can't have its part moved which could be an issue for Hal.

If it were me I think I'd go with the Benny or Hansel and not sweat it too much.
