More wigs....  
Okay f-list, you have all convinced me to go the extra mile and spend the extra money to make my costume fabulous. So. I've narrowed it down (I think) to two wigs. One I can get for about $50, the other for about $65. Which one, just from looking at the pics, do you like better?

And the same wig from the front:

And then the other option, pictured again:

If it matters or helps in any way, my costume will feature a high lace collar around my neck. If I can figure a good way of shaping and stiffening the lace, that is.

ETA: Edited to add, since people seem to be liking the second one better, it also comes in a honey blond color, which I COULD possibly use for other costumes (ie, dressing up like a doll, etc). Do you think the color is important? white being the traditional powdered wig look we all associate w/MA.

Current Mood: curiouscurious

I'm still loving the second one best.

The second one looks higher quality, IMHO...just a bit classier for a lady of your stature ;)

I definitely like the second one better, and I slightly prefer the honey-blond. :)

2nd one. First one looks like poodle hair not a human hairstyle.

I do love the white one, but like you say, the honey blonde wig might be more versatile for future costumes. If the Masquerade was specifically Marie Antoinette-themed, then I'd say go for accuracy, but since it's a general Hallowe'en one, you can get away with versatility, I think.

(LOL. I had to cover the face of the honey blonde model because her rather stunned expression was so distracting and I couldn't focus on the wig!)

Agreed - the second one, and in honey-blonde. Much better than the first.

Go with the second one, honey blonde.

If you really want it to be white, you could always get baby powder and powder it yourself (really authentic!) and then it would just be a matter of shaking out the powder the next time you want to use it.
