Wig help/critique (fake scalp showing)!?
Hi all, looking for advice on my Nausicaa wig please, I've uploaded images on the costume http://www.cosplayisland.co.uk/costume/view/55405
I've never had a wig with what I can only describe as a 'fake scalp' or at least I've never noticed it on my wigs.
My issue is that I'm not sure if too much of this scalp part is showing. I'm short so this type of thing will matter! So I'd like advice on whether it will be fine and it's not too much showing or if not maybe how to hide it?? I don't have time to try it on and take a picture right now but I put my hand under the wig in the pictures to try and show it well.

You will notice the Nausicaa costume has a hat but I planned to use this wig for two other costumes without hats.

The wig is from ebay (China).
Thanks

I think it looks fine I have a mixture of wigs some with skin tops and some without. I actually prefer the skintops as they look a little more realistic I don't think this one looks weird at all. I started at it for a good 10 mins and that's when it started looking odd coz I'd looked too much but I honestly think it will be fine People are more likely to notice a bad shiny or crazy smiffy wig over a weather a wig has skin top or not I think keep it and use it as you had originally planned (with the other two cosplays )

Thanks for the advice I've never had a wig like this one so I was like ...erm... but if you have experience with them and think it's fine then that makes me feel a little better!! I'll try it on a couple of times when I have the time and double check!!
Thanks again (for the 10 minutes of your time too!!)

No worries I was writing up a boring assignment so it was a nice distraction. But they definatly look weird the first time you use one. I was convinced the first one I had the skin was too dark for my natural scalp colour but the photos can out looking better then the ones without it. I'm pretty sure my Kaylee wig has a skin top and people always think it's my own hair

Thanks so much for your help ^^ and lol I'm doing quite a bit of Uni work atm, have to 'relax' by coming online and distracting myself every now and then too

I always find wigs with skin tops to be more realistic, they are essential when a character has an obvious parting in the hair I think.
I don't see anything wrong with your wig =)
