These latex caps are handformed with exceptionally thin edges, good size for easy application. Liquid latex (sold separately) is recommended for the most seamless fit. Spirit gum may also be used.

***PLEASE READ THIS REVIEW FIRST***
When purchasing this, I looked at these reviews and was worried about buying this BUT most of the people in these review pictures DO NOT KNOW HOW TO PROPERLY APPLY A BALD CAP! If you know how to apply a PROPER bald cap, than this product is AMAZING for this price!
Here is a photo of my Sasha Velour cosplay using this bald cap, AND YOU CANNOT SPOT THE CAP AT ALL.
So, don't let these other photos scare you!
If you need help applying this bald cap Instagram message me! @crimsyn.co
This product is THICKER than a PROFESSIONAL bald cap, but that doesnt mean you cant take the extra 10 minutes to blend it.
I already had one of these bald cap in our stock from a previous director. Our of the package it looked like it would work and I saw some encouraging photos of a successful application from another reviewer. I decided to order 4 more from Amazon.
When we tried to appy the cap it was just too small and precut. The widows peak was too high and was not able to cover the actors hairline. It was also too short and did not reach his neck. We attached it to the actors forehead and pulled it back to attach the neck but it was so stretched it was pulling his eyebrows up, giving him a permanently surprised look on his face. Also it has alot of defectsnin the latex and inconsistant quality control.
This item is not eligble for return so we are stuck with 4 crappy bald caps and out the money.
I have long hair (halfway down my back) and was able to pin it to my head and cover all the hair using this cap. The main problem with the cap is that when you stretch it, it does have the propensity to tear. I had it rip near my ear area after cutting it to fit around my ears (which you will have to do because the cap does not have ear holes). I was able to mostly glue it back together, but it didn't look as nice with the rip. Other than the ripping, my only other complain is that the edges ripple when you use glue. I used spirit gum, which is costume makeup glue, and the cap required multiple layers of the gum to stay in place. It began to ripple around the edges (shown in first photo) while the glue was drying. It wasn't that noticeable to other people, but it did bother me because I am a costume perfectionist.
Overall, though, I think that these flaws are inherent to any bald cap and I would buy this again in a heartbeat if I ever need to portray a smooth-headed person again. It was able to be covered with makeup well and everyone loved my costume.
For the pictures, I attached a reference photo showing how much hair I have, a picture of the bald cap after makeup was applied to match my skin tone, and the final result.
You also need some adhesive to make the cap stick to your skin. I definitely recommend Spirit Gum. Sounds funky but worked well and washed off easily.
My biggest problem was that when I trimmed and put the cap on it looks smooth, but I needed my wife to peel up the back to apply the Spirit Gum to prevent it from slipping - and when she rolled it back down she did not pull it tight again, so I had wrinkles on top that didn't look natural.
Expect to spend another $20-30 (or more) on make-up and Spirit Gum and allow 1-2 hours to apply the make-up and it can look really good. 1-2 hours is a honest recommendation because you need to apply, let it dry, then touch it up.
It has gone to 2 parties so far. One more Halloween event to go!
