I have eight wigs, none of which of are real human hair. Now that I’m working for a costume/Halloween store full time, I have access to even more strands of colorful delight.
Last month I decided I was done with the rat race, the nine to five. I quit a new day job I’d only had for six weeks. Although the pay was good and it was in my field, some things I was promised at the onset didn’t evolve. I had just been through seven years of that madness in my previous employment. I’d decided I wasn’t going to go through another seven years of not being happy and broken promises. So I quit and went full time to a fun job that will also allow me to write and create more. I was ready to make a leap of faith, ready to change.
It’s put another delay in finishing “Strax and the Widow”, but I am much happier and less stressed.
I find inspiration everywhere in the shop, in all the fun costumes and accessories. I love the endless styles of wigs. They too help me to change. I’m happy to share a bit of the selection here. Enjoy, I’ll keep you posted on the nifty things coming soon. And note I have reduced prices for a pre-Halloween sale in my Etsy store, so please take a gander.
My real hair, although heavily lightened in these two pics.

The second use of the red bob wig. I jumped out of that coffin for three hours.
I hope you enjoyed this retrospective of my wigs. Thank you for reading,
