Over this summer, I made a discovery. Wigs are fun! And they cut down photo prep time by quite a bit since I can style a wig just once, and wear it multiple times.
And the only part of a wig that looks fake is the part, which is covered by my nearly always wearing a hat! The wig in the above picture was one of my first attempts at styling – and since it’s a great easy style to do, I plan to post a tutorial. Watch for it on this blog within the next couple of months!
In these photos, I’m wearing a steampunk costume which features my “princess” swag sleeves. They are a great way to inexpensively cover all those problem areas that tend to emerge if wearing a corset without a matching shrug. If you like the look, it can be purchased in my etsy shop here.
Slightly later in the summer, I decided to be a redhead for a bit with help from the wig in these photos!
I call this look “Lovely in Lace”. I love how vibrant the red wig is against the green of nature and the blue I’m wearing!
I again donned blue for the following photos – and although the pattern is actually exactly the same as the above style, the black, the stripes, and the mini top hat give my outfit a cirque noir look.
I didn’t style the blonde wig – I bought it that way! It’s made to look like the fairy godmother in the live action version of Cinderella. Lol blonde isn’t my best color – but sometimes I’m going for a look that needs that bit of pseudo-baroque-ness – and on goes the little blonde wig! The outfit can be custom-requested in my etsy shop, or if you will fit the size-small photoshoot sample, it’s posted for sale here.
These were just early wig stylings. Since then I’ve figured out Baroque wig styling, Victorian updos, and more! I’m enjoying playing with some new wigs now during the cold months, and once it gets warm, I’ll be able to get some more fun “wigging out” photos! And again, watch for upcoming wig-styling tutorials, to be posted right here. 🙂
