Advice on bleaching hair
This London MCM is my first time Cosplaying and it's vicious from cowboy bebop, and to do that I would need to bleach my hair white, and then dye it back after MCM does anybody have any advice on how to do this or if there is an alternative better route than this?

A wig would be the safest and quickest option, especially if you don't plan to keep the colour. Bleaching can be very damaging to the hair and it takes a long time to get a white colour, you can't reach white in one bleach session and you need to leave your hair inbetween to rest and repair so you won't have it white by Expo

Buy a wig, I dyed my hair last year thinking it´d be cheaper. The color was close to mine and the length was perfect. Big mistake. I´ve spent much more in treatments to get it nice and soft again, and can´t do a photoshoot again without buying a wig or dying it again. So I´m saving for one.

I'd only dye if your commited to keeping the colour.

I dyed my hair to cosplay Loki, but I'd wanted to dye my hair black for years. So it was an reason to give it a go, and I've kept it since despite not cosplaying him since December and won't be again till August.

Bleaching is a lot worse than plain dyeing though, getting a wig would be your best idea. Specially if your not going to keep the colour.

I think this close to expo, it'd be worth looking at Coscraft.co.uk who are a UK wig seller. I've heard their wigs are good, so give them a try. C:

From a quick look, this wig may work for you from them. C:
