wigs, the 60s and cosplay

I know I have been quiet for a while. Been a little busy but I wanted to fill you in on my latest project.
I blame reruns of Man from uncle (the TV series not the film). It's got me into that 1960s style.
I've been gathering together 60s sewing patterns and have been attempting to style a wig using heated rollers and a setting pattern found on pinterests.
Probably needs more backcombing for volume. But I'm hoping it's on the right track.
This little exercise is all in the name of cosplay. A femme version of a well known uncle agent.
I think the badge with number 2 on it might be a big clue.
