beard Help?
Ok so for Kitacon Ive decided to cosplay Sirius Black *gary oldman version, thats right im doing the actual old sirius* so I am able to grow the tash/beard combo but if it falls on a day that isnt friday Im pretty much screwed XD so i was wondering what the best way to get this kind of beard in an effective way *see pic Ive put on*

ps:ive tried fake moustache and it looks really lame XD

Thanks for any help

His beard looks rather umkempt so if I were in your shoes I'd grow it bigger than I needed it and then trim and style it on the day. I can't really think of anything else, although I'm sure someone else will have some tips

My BF wanted to go as Heihachi to one of the conventions, so I was planning to make his moustache out of crepe hair, which you can buy pretty easily for a modest price online. All you need to do is apply some spirit gum to the face and then layer it on, perhaps neatening it up by trimming it into shape afterwards.

I found a pretty decent tutorial on youtube here.


Going to try an attempt it over Christmas, fingers crossed!

If you don't want to grow it yourself, or can't, a good, realistic-looking way is theatrical facial hair.

I get mine from www.dauphines.co.uk at the moment and they're great. See my Xiahou Dun costume for an example - and remember, you can trim them to style as well.
