have any of you used a plastic bag in replace of using/buying a latex bald cap? did it work out for you? pros? cons?

I've seen my wife and one of our other make-up people use them. I think they are a little tricker to apply, but if you learn the trick then you are good to go. Also, I think it depends on the application.
I've seen it demonstrated in one of Geoff Beck's videos if you are looking for a how-to on it.

yeah i have the video. in seems that it turned out pretty good. one just has to eliminate the exta material that gathers in the back of the head.

I've found it actuallu easier to use than a bald cap, it just doesn;t fit as snug but can have a great texture effect. I've also used saranwrap, which worked pretty good when tacked down with latex.

I prefer to just use a bald guy!

I think the plastic bag works rather well, especially on people with really long hair. Its easier to get all the hair into the bag, rather than try to get it into a bald cap.

does the bag tear easily?

Jason - tearing isn't really an issue if you use a good bag, like a heavier plastic - not the "cheaper" ones
Rob - i prefer bald men too lol

Click on "products" then "watermelon products" and scroll down until you see the bald cap.

Watermelon products rock - for the bald cap (reusable) there is a picture tutorial on the site at the product listing.

Plastic cap bald caps are the greatest, much better than plastic bags.
