For painting, I did not take any pictures, but Sak sprayed on 2 coats of clear spray to protect the paper from saturation. He used two different brands that both worked - Rustoleum Matte spray and Krylon Polyurathane clear spray. After that dried, he sprayed on 2 coats of this amazing product called Plasti Dip (in black). It's pretty much liquid rubber, so it gave the hair this awesome rubbery texture. We didn't spray the inside of the hair, but that would have made it even stronger I'm guessing! (Sak would like to remind anyone using sprayable Plasti Dip - please use a respirator or very good ventilation! The chemicals are very strong, and no one wants to breath liquid rubber into their lungs!)
Anyway, that's how we ended up with awesome hair.
I loved this cosplay so much!! My only regret is that we did not take enough pictures, or move around the con together enough since half of us were working at Artist Alley. :( Also, my widow's peak dug into my forehead and gave me a mini bruise. Just me though. Must be my large forehead. :P
Anyway, I foresee much more papercraft cosplay in our future! Badman Vegeta was a great start!
