Wigs

I bought all new Galadriel wigs this year after wearing one for over 16 hours at Dragon*Con, including the Middle Earth dance party.

I show up at 3:18. Just look how that wig is sliding back and forth along my back!



Afterward, this was the underside of the wig:

New wigs are from Wilshire wigs: http://www.wilshirewigs.com/godiva-by-wig-america-godiva.html

Synthetic hair, skin top. This is not a lace-front wig. I don't need lace front because Galadriel's hair is not brushed back from her face.

I bought one for the White Council, LOTR Galadriel, and one for wearing with hoods up. I don't like wearing the same wig for more than one day without detangling it, to minimize the chance it will be ruined (and no more dancing in them). Detangling takes a LONG time, so I don't want to do it at a convention.

I am experimenting with different methods of getting curl I want.

Braids

Back is one big braid which will remain in place so hair won't tangle under hoods.

Braids have worked in the past (see icon), if I got them in soon enough. I hope two months is enough time!

Good rules. I usually eat according to what color I am wearing, though I have eaten pizza as Galadriel. More than once. ;-)
