|I ordered a Beato wig a long time ago hoping to have done her human variant. I never got around to it, and I don't see myself pulling ass enough to have this done any time soon either, but it's a costume I'd LIKE to do (and at least I have something that might one day inspire me to get a move on and make it), so it's going to stay in the planned section for as long as I see fit (i.e. until I start making it or I decide it's not going to happen ever).|
Very early beginnings. (Posted 4th February 2011)
SO. I preordered myself a Beato wig from Taobao (seller was FantasySheep) once I decided to make her crazy ass dress so I wouldn't chicken out of it and had something to prompt me to keep going with it, and it FINALLY ARRIVED (after like, two months of waiting. Ffffffuck EMS shipping from China up the bum) and I am SO happy with it. 8DDD
It's... actually really heavy for a wig. Surprisingly so. I kept thinking I was going to topple backwards wearing it, but thankfully, I didn't. It's a gorgeous colour - apparently really suits my skin tone - and although the bangs were impossible to see out from under when I tried it on first, one of my mother's friends was around, and she's a hairdresser, so she trimmed the bangs so I could see out of them. Thank crap.
The flower needs replacing with a much larger, gaudier one, but ah well, I suppose I can pick one of those up cheaply any other day of the week. :D
