Pastel Wig

I wanted to shoot a headband I made and do just headshots for this post because…

a) my fashion-related talents are not just limited to sewing,

b) my wig collection is so big that it would be a shame not to showcase it, and

c) it gives me to opportunity to get back into the habit of using makeup as a form of self-empowerment.

This headband is one I made for my pair of lavender looks for Sacramento Fashion Week last year (fourth picture above).  I think making matching accessories to my garments really helps drive the overall message of a ‘look’ home.  It was one of the only headpieces I have that matches my most outrageous wig– this Rainbow Rock in Spring Bouquet by RockStar Wigs!  The wig was purchased about four years ago because I needed a wig in a raspberry pink in order to match an EGL ensemble.  I now want to use this wig in more shoots and fashion shows!

The wig is paired with Rock-a-Lash’s Lashing Out Loud (top lashes only).  My face is covered with foundation, hot pink and purple eyeshadow, purple eyeliner, black Wet-N-Wild liquid eyeliner, mascara, pinky blush, and a raspberry pink lipstick to match the pink in the wig.

I plan on making new headpieces soon for the shop– they will all probability be anywhere from $8 – $35 depending on how elaborate they are.  The whole shop is going to be revamped, so stay tuned to see what I will (literally) have in store for you all!

For those who still need their hands on some pastels or fashions with a butterfly motif, I’ve picked out a few items for you to view!  Enjoy~
