'Venus" Wig

Project Description

What was your inspiration? Mortimer's "Venus" wig I created for a local production of "the Fantasticks". It's based on costume photos in the script. I had to learn new stitches and develop my own to get the effect I wanted. Looks so '70s, I think, lol! I'm happy how it turned out

Is there a pattern for this?
webloreArt answered:
No, I just made it up. Are you doing a production of Fantasticks?
kimpossib9503159 asked:
Not a question, but I don't know how to write back! Lol I am dressing as a sugar skull for Halloween, and instead of buying a wig, I want to make one. The one that you made is perfect for the look I'm going for... and I want to win a costume contest!!!
webloreArt answered:
Yeah, it's weird trying to answer back. If you're familiar with making hats, here are a few tips: I did a basic skull cap that I added the loops pattern to at the bottom. The top part is just a mini cone shaped hat with a textured pattern filled with polyfil and sewn onto the main hat. I did a few coils (4 sc into each loop on a chain) and added pipe cleaners coiled over a chopstick.
