Headpiece for Costume Party

I have a theme party coming with some friends of mine, a "Heroes & Villains" party.

Naturally, I'm going as

It's a fairly simple costume all around. Shaving my beard and leaving the 'stache is about as dedicated as I'm getting.

Which leaves the hair as the major problem. I need a hairpiece that will emulate Carl's signature do, except I have not a clue in the world where to find one. Google has given few helpful results, so I come to you, fellow Arcadians.

And if this goes well, maybe I'll get a little nude...

Yeah, I'm way past the point of caring on this one.

    Bald cap, liquid latex, spirit gum, makeup, and some crepe hair

    Fit the bald cap to your head, or someone elses. Apply the spirit gum to the bald cap in a thick line no more than 5 inches long. Wait till it gets tacky. Cut off some of the crepe or wig hair and put it on. Make another line of spirit gum somewhere else, and repeat. To get a halfway decent looking hair application, you need to apply the hair one row after another. Once this dries, remove the cap untill you are ready to use it.
    When you are ready to use it, gather up all of your hair under it. Use the liquid latex to blend the edges to your head. Use the makeup to color match your skin tone.


    But you might be able to find something like this already made. I dunno.
