It is All About Wig Making
Sorry for the delay in writing this. I have been so busy with life and wig making. First off, I have simply uploaded a brief video to You Tube, by which I show you the materials I obtained from the wig making company. To summarise:
– Monofilament Galloon in 1 cm and 0.7 cm widths
– Light Blonde Galloon in 1 cm and 0.5 cm widths
– Honeycomb Lace in Gentle Blonde
– Advantageous Lace (like very advantageous Swiss lace) – comes in flesh tone
– Stretch Lace (has honeycomb type holes – barely different to some stretch I have seen) – also is available in flesh tone
– Clear Thread
I also ended up individually buying a extremely massive reel of blonde colour polyester thread as the one I’ve is just an everyday cotton reel and I do know I’ll probably run out of it at some inopportune moment. I additionally picked up a big pack of pins too as I find I’m utilizing so much of those and sometimes they break or bend and so on.
This is the video:
I point out within the video that I’ve different kinds of wigs been changing a full lace wig into a non-bonded one. The rationale for this is 2-fold. Firstly, because of medical issues, the wig now not matches me accurately for bonding. It implies that bonding it is extremely difficult (more-so than regular) as the wig does not need to lay accurately to be adhered down and secondly, due to those medical problems I find bonding to be difficult as a result of I do not really have the vitality to keep my arms within the air for long durations of time regularly. So, there I was with a 16 inch remy wig simply lying in my closet ready for something to happen. I truly actually need a wig proper now that works for me, as the hair I do have is very brief and while I don’t thoughts that, there are times when a lady simply wants to have lengthy hair.
So far I have in all probability spent about half a day engaged on the wig. I’m half-approach although. I would say that the impact with this wig is almost like a glueless lace wig, besides that the front is now not lace straight to skin, as an alternative it is monofilament galloon. I shall be ventilating somewhat more hair into the top center, as I am parting the hair in the center – a rarity for me! Parting the hair in the center helps to make the density less noticeably “pouffy” on top (something that I’m trying to get away from as I discover it is unflattering on me). I shall also beneath-ventilate hair into the inside of the galloon as this can assist to cowl any edge. Once this is completed, I shall be getting it lower into a mode and will put up a pic in some unspecified time in the future of the completed product.
Anyway, before I started changing the complete lace wig, I had finished the prototype cap and tried it on. It fitted me extraordinarily nicely apart from the nape. I think the nape did not work so well as a result of on my original head mould, I had not managed to cover the bottom inch or two of the again of my head to my nape, so once i put the sample on the block, I ended up guessing how far my nape prolonged and so on. Taking this into consideration, I made a new mould of my head, put it on my block and stuffed it in order that I could start making a correct wig cap to make my first wig with. I used to be mapping out the galloon structure (by default this step essentially creates a pattern so that you can observe) and had began sewing the joins, nook darts and the gathers over the ears. As soon as I have finished the lace wig – by the top of this week – I shall be going again to doing that. I hope to take some photos so for instance what I am talking about.
