    Can someone tell me the different in balding caps? I need to order some and I understand there are some applied with latex and some with alcohol. So my questions are:

    1. Which are easier to use?
    2. Can they be re-used?
    3. Where are you purchasing them from (better quality)?

    I am doing a scene that requires two actors to wear them so we can pull off their wigs and see brains. So I have to make a piece for their heads like they are being scalped.

    go to theeffectslab.com check out their lab forum and do a search for your topic. I wolud look into watermelon caps, they are awesome. the edges melt with alcohol.

    How long are you looking to spend getting your actors ready for the evening?

    A multi use silicone "bald cap" could be made using the brows to help hide the edge, is that your plan?

    OD: The faster and easiest for them the better. They are going to have a wig that comes off for the scalping scene so I am going to have to make a headpiece for them to look like we cut the top of their head off.

    I checked the watermelon caps out Allen said about and I should have picked them up at MHC but didn't. I am going to try a few of them but still looking for suggestions.
