Wig Ransom

May 1, 2009 3 comments

My wigs arrived today! Unfortunately they are being held hostage in the apartment complex office. I will likely pick them up tomorrow evening, in exchange for the ridiculous amount of dollars that is my half of the rent. The anticipation is KILLING me!!!

I ordered two, this silly costume one that looks shockingly accurate but is probably quite cheap and not realistic-looking, and a long, synthetic, slightly wavey one to experiment with for my go at the Hair of Great Enormity, the massively curled style seen in "The Duchess." Hopefully both wigs will work out and I will have "Large" as well as "Gargantuan" to choose from!


  1. where were you able to order a wig from?

  2. I got my wigs from VogueWigs.com:


    Also try wigs.com:


    My Partner in Crime and I have found that the costume wigs, so long as they're not in that blinding fake white color, actually work pretty well, although they are sometimes a little more difficult to work with than more "serious" wigs, which are constructed to mimic real hair.

    Good luck!!!

  3. I am an historical reenactor. I was fortunate to get the BEST ladies' colonial wig mail order from the UK, and LOVE it. I was able to get ONE more for resale. I have ONE for sale on my website, for $150. I get asked ALL THE TIME if it is my hair! It is superb quality for the price, and no one else has ANYTHING LIKE IT. If interested, visit our website:
