A wig is probably the best choice, as he has a pretty unique hairstyle as well

I just looked at a variety of wigs and all of them are $50 or higher and I can't quite afford that. So, I might just have to test my luck with the Dye.

If you want to dye your hair that color, then I have a good idea on how to get your hair that spiky (and thanks to Cha telling this one :3)

Just get some egg whites and whip them up and use that like a hair mousse. It should stay in and it won't go bad after one day (trust me. I used to use egg and olive oil to give my hair a shiney affect....just because I like the shiney)

whhhooooaaa just get some bed head hair gel. It works wonders. Remember kids, this con is in May...and leaving raw egg in your hair O_o gross?

(from a website)
Egg whites: Yeah, I know what you're thinking, and you're right... it's mostly true. Egg whites, though they can support up to 4" of hair, are icky and smell funny. After a day of regular wear, you'll get flaky white chunks in your hair. I don't personally reccomend eggs, but I know people who swear by 'em


Also you can find plenty of wigs on ebay (from good sellers) for under 30 dollars. I know I just did. I'll look around for you. What's your limit?

hmmm we've already derailed this a while ago with the hair chit chat. I'm sure William will soon be here to clean it up.

BUT ANYWAYS WIGNESS!

So this one I'm sure you can style to be his hair and it comes out to a total of 21.98 including shipping! woooo!
