I think I have never told you guys my story of how I became to wear wigs?
Well today after working like crazy I think I write you a little story that is to take
you to see the most awkward moments of my wig world. Let's get started!
I started as a real poor looking bastard, who had no idea what looked good on her in any kind of situation. My hair has always been poor and I never knew how to do anything with it tough I wanted to.
THIS is my real hair. My hair is not too thin that I couldn't style it the way others do, buns, tails etc. It just always turned out wrong. There is a spiral in my hairline that makes it impossible for me to have bangs. Okay I can but MAN what kind of work that is! And in an hour the hair will turn like this.
My first mission was to make my hair look flawless with less trouble. At first I started wearing hair extensions.
These pictures are from my blogs first 2 months. So sorry for showing them to you!
Anyhow, the extensions turned out not too fitting for me. They kept pulling my hair since I couldn't put them right. I kept burning my ears, fingers, forehead. Just wasn't my thing. I tried them again tough a year later when I bleached my hair, but if possible I did even worse. Lets move on before I start hitting my head to wall.
Anyway, I had cosplayed for years so wigs were familiar to me. I hadn't worn them tough. But saw many do so! I came to think one day why couldn't I wear them without a Con behind it? So I ordered my first wig that I really REALLY though looked natural.. Did not.
So here was my first wig. And possibly one of the first make-ups I ever did.
Tough this wig looked awful, it didn't fall pretty, didn't wave in the wind, glowed like a firefly, I still felt confident in it. So I didn't stop there, I got more!
I must say, it takes a lot of eye, money and time to find what kind of wig is good one, if no-one tells you. I bought a lot from ebay and everytime the wigs were just a little to that direction I ordered. Only after I started ordering from actual wig stores the result turned better. Of course the Ebay got me lucky srikes once in a while!
I have worn all the colors in wig form there is. Except blue, green, grey.. fine there are some colors. Let's not get lost to that! The point is that no matter how lame, shiny or unrealistic wig I have been wearing I have gotten date suggestions from real good looking people, many people have complimented my hair and asked me who is my hair dresser.
I've gotten sometimes comment from people that I am a cheater when I wear wigs. That wearing wigs is anymore face than really bad applied hair extensions, excuse me what? Wigs are beautiful and they allow people do styles their own hair doesn't them allow to do. People have to get over this, that is not real, so fake, you shame yourself? I mean, what the hell? People wear black lipstick, like anyone has naturally lips that color? It's part of the style! It's personal and big part of me. Since when beauty turned into crime?
All I can say is that once I tried wig on I haven't been able to live without wigs. I can name dozen great reason why to wear them and here is a few of them!
1. Your own hair thanks you when you don't dye your hair eveytime you wanna try something new.
2. Don't have to be scared of how will you look with shorter hair.
3. Your hair color ALWAYS will match your mood, clothes and new fashion trends.
4. Every girl and girl minded can become a princess.
5. Your hair won't go flat no matter if there is rain or frost or you sweat like crazy
This list I can keep up on all night!
The first thought for people in west have is that wigs are for Halloween or theme parties. Well yes the low quality once that you throw away are, but there are so many great quality wigs that just stun and blow your mind once you try them! You shouldn't be scared or ashamed! This is fun, saves time and totally awesome. In Paris there was a fashion show where the models were wearing wigs and in Asia its just real basic to wear wigs. Wigs help me to express myself and I couldn't be gladder that I came to find them!
Now it's all up to you gals!
Share me your story!
