I have always loved this wig. As I mention in the video, a lot of people dislike it because PERMATEASE, but it doesn’t bother me here. It’s a lot, but it gives the wig a lovely shape.
In fact, I very much want to try a custom order with Rene of Paris for Laine, to get it in a rooted color. However, in order to do this I’ll need to order 6 of the wigs (all in the same color), and it will cost more per wig. So I’ll need to drum up some other wig-wearers who would also want to try a custom Laine – like I did with my custom Shilo. Since Shilo was a monofilament top, we only had to order three that time, but ROP wants a minimum of 6 in a non-mono. So there you go. My only other decision to make is what color to get. Rooted shades look best when there’s a dramatic difference between the root color and the hair fiber, as in blonde shades, but I don’t really want to go that light. Almond Spice-R, maybe? Or perhaps that awesome new Crimson-LR I got for the Angelica? Decisions, decisions…guess first I need to see how many other people I can get on board to buy one, and figure out a color that would make everyone happy.
Also, I really tried this week to learn and utilize better video editing software for my vids, so I could do things like correct color balance and add saturation as well as try out some more interesting transitions and fades (without going overboard and getting cheesy, of course) but my knowledge base is too low to do these things with any level of success, plus my poor laptop is so overburdened as it is that it couldn’t handle the software without crashing. So, alls you get is some new titles and a fancier screenshot photo. Oh well. I’m reading up on camera settings for the 7D that I use, since I think that will take care of some of the issues that are bugging me right now; probably I can correct a lot of things in-camera without having to resort to different software anyway. We’ll see if future videos show any improvement once I make my tweaks.
Anyway, here’s Laine! I know I am messing with her a lot, but she was right out of the box and the hair does take awhile to tame on this one. Lots of little flyaways in the face the first few wears.
