Do you have any suggestions for owning a wig and no wig stand? I'm not sure how to store my wig. thank you.
Just keep the bag and net it came in and store it in there. Arguments can be made that this is actually a better way to store your wigs because you don’t have their own weight pulling on the fibers.
Would Lockshop's Mermaid Beachy go with sweet lolita? I've seen it used for gothic before, but not sweet. I have sugary carnival in black, but I want to get more lavender and mint dresses.
Definitely. I think it’s gorgeous and very versatile.
Been through the wigs tag but didn't find this kind of question, so I'm going to ask. I have a lovely pink wig but I hate wearing it because it weighs so much it slowly falls and you can start to see the black hairs on the sides. I use a wig cap and everything, but it ends up falling anyway. I don't know what I should do. Should I use hairpins to secure it? They would show and that would look gross...
You should definitely use hairpins to secure it. If it’s a decent wig they shouldn’t show. Just use light colored bobby pins and put them under the hair of the wig so they secure through the netting of the wig and then into your wig cap/real hair. The hair should cover them just fine.
There are also wig clips that you can get and sew into the netting that work very well.
Hello! I have been in Lolita for a little while now and I was considering buying a wig (from Bodyline because I don't want an expensive one if I don't like it). However, I have very thick, curly, fluffy, and fairly long hair. I could flatten it if it is wet or if I use hair gel, but I'm worried that it won't fit in the wig; even if it does, my wig might be damaged. I was wondering if there was any advice you could give about this aside from cutting my hair. ;_; Thank you!
Just use a wig cap. You’ll be fine I promise. I have a lot of long, thick hair too and I have no problem with wigs unless they’re short. Bodyline sells wig caps for $1. No need for your hair to be wet or gelled or any of that silly stuff. I just put my hair into a ponytail where I only pull it half way through on the last loop and then put on the wig cap. The good ones like the one I linked are open at the top so you put them the whole way over your head until it’s around your neck and then pull it up over your head so it pulls all the hair into it.
Urgent!!~ Is it okay to wear a split tone wig with classic lolita? I know they are more commonly used for sweet but I have a blonde and brown rhapsody one that I would like to know if it would work
I think that if both colors are natural colors it can work very well. I would just stay away from the Sweet pastels and bright colors unless you were being very careful about them making sense with the coord. Your blonde and brown should be perfectly fine.
Do you know how poofy the wig supplier rhapsody wigs are? I don't want it to be too overwhelming and take away from my coord.
I think they’re just poofy enough. I have one of theirs and I really love it. It’s great worn as it is for more elaborate coords and then I can do a lot of different braided styles with it since it’s so long for other coords and when I take the braids out at the end of the day the wig goes right back to normal.
I've been looking for a wine colored wig on a budget. GLW and lockshop are just too expensive for me. I saw that people own bodyline wigs in wine but I just don't see where they are getting the wine colored ones. Can you help a sister out? thanks!
The wine colored wigs from Bodyline are probably their color Red 4. It’s the color you see pictured for this wig and I think it’s a gorgeous color and that particular wig is very nice as well. This wig also comes in that same red if you wanted something shorter and red 3 may work as well but I can’t find any pictures of it as a full wig, just the little swatch they have.
Hi, I'm planning on buying Infanta's Strawberry Sundae OP and I know for the most part how I want to coord it (I'm not an OTT fan so black shoes, white tights, wrist cuffs, matching head bow and probably some kind of bag) but I am stumped on the hair. I was wondering if you could suggest any wigs in the under $30 range that you think would go well with that dress.
If you’re trying to stay away from OTT just go with a natural looking wig with a little curl to it. Something bouncy and cute to go with the super sweet look the dress has but in a natural color. Bodyline has a few wigs I can think of that would work nicely and are in your price range but unfortunately they don’t want to load for me at the moment.
URGENT! Please help I have my 1st meet on saturday. Can I wear a blonde wig with gothic lolita? I really like that it makes my black hair accessories Stand out compared to my Brown wig. Ive only seen gothic worn with dark hair.
Your blonde wig will be perfectly fine.
I'm not physically prevented from dyeing my hair by allergies, but wigs are still really convenient for me. When I was in middle school my parents were dead against me dyeing my hair, even natural colors, because my hair's dark and they thought the bleach would wreck it. I like my natural colour and if I was to dye my hair it'd be blue or purple, but both my high school dress code and my college part-time job banned unnatural colours. Wearing wigs means I get to have fun colors AND keep my job.
Work is part of the reason I have wigs too.
