Hallowe'en Good Times (Strawberry Blonde)
November 9, 2011
What can you say about a wig that when your niece sees you in it she exclaims 'Titi (auntie) you beau-i-ful' (she's 2 - it was super sweet)? I bought this wig a couple of years ago for a flapper costume and never got the chance to wear it. Finally, this year I got to pull it off the stand and take it for a drive. True, the dress is a bit more 40s than 20s, but it was the best I could do given the weather (I would have frozen in the 20s-ish dress). The theater background and makeup history came in handy with the cupid's bow lips and vamp eye makeup. I love the colour of the wig - I got the stawberry blonde - which is fairly close to my own hair colour. The only downside was that it fit a little bit small on my head (which is not that uncommon) I had to pin it to my own hair before we went out trick-or-treating so I wouldn't loose it to wind or the above mentioned 2 year old. I did however like the look so much that I did some amateur head shots in the costume and makeup before going out.
