Rumpelstiltskin wig help!
Hi guys, I'm going to be cosplaying Rumpelstiltskin from Once Upon A Time. I've already got bits for his outfit and make-up but I am having trouble finding a decent wig. I managed to find a really good one but because it was made from human hair, it ended up selling for £40 which I can't afford. I haven't been able to find another one that could work yet and wondered if anyone was selling one/could help me look for one? My budget would be max £25 would like one cheaper than that ideally ><

Hm, difficult colour to match. I have very little experience with wigs, so hopefully someone will be along shortly with more help.

Otherwise, what about this? http://www.wigisfashion.com/products/tb1097 It's white, not grey, but it's similar?

(Incidentally as I have no idea what to do with wigs, I don't know what that shop is like in terms of quality/lead time. I just found it under the Shops tab up top.)

Looks like you might need to make a compromise.
It's a pretty unusual colour mix or at least not popular with the cheap chinese manufacturers. If you're happy to cut them shorter yourself either of these could do:

For something less of a colour match but generally nicer quality you could style waves into one of these:

And if you have a LOT of free time on your hands you could get a white one and sharpie it grey leaving white strands throughout.

Good luck!

Orrrr, buy a grey one and glue in wisps of white/brown? It's still hassle but it's an option.

Thank you both for your help! I'm going to definitely have to compromise on colour but that's not too much of a problem really. I think I might go for a grey wig and add in different colours. Again thank you for your help
