Gimme A Head Of Hair

My wig arrived yesterday!

Because it was a work day, and a therapy day, and because the lawn at the house needed mowing (still my job even though I don’t live there anymore, since if it goes undone I’m the one who gets the city citation), I didn’t get to even open the box until late at night. It was smaller than I expected it to be; I think I imagined the thing arriving on a head or something. But no, it was neatly bundled in a mesh net and tucked into tissue paper inside a box that looked like a small shoebox.


As for the wig itself, I confess I forgot to take a picture of it. I guess I was too eager to try it on. Out of the box it looks nothing like the picture on the website, of course, and I have no clue how to style it yet; I think I need to get a wig comb or something before it looks presentable. It’s also darker than it looked on the website, though not significantly darker than my natural hair (maybe half a shade).

I wore it around the apartment for a bit, but I was tired and eventually went to bed (no, I didn’t sleep in it). About the only thing I can say for sure is that every time I moved around in it hair fell into my eyes. It’s going to take some patience and some practice to get this right!
