I think I finally found the solution to my camera problem – I won’t go into the details since they would only interest me, but suffice it to say that I am actually satisfied with the end result of this particular video, so I’ve learned how to deal with the Sony at last. I’m also using new video editing software (a slight upgrade from the Movie Maker I’ve been using all these years) so I did use some transition effects that may or may not be really cheesy, but I couldn’t help myself. At last, though, I can edit the colors a bit in a video to make them more vibrant; I’ve hated how dull the color has been on my videos for quite awhile, but of course MM has no way to increase saturation. (Although, for some reason, the video goes on for about 10 minutes after it ends, and I don’t know why – I promise there’s nothing to see past the six minute mark!)
The other good news is that Harvest Gold is beautiful in this wig; I’ve wanted to try something else in this color since buying Coco over the summer, but I was always concerned it would be too blonde or brassy for me. As it turns out, it’s gorgeous, and of course I’m trying to decide what to get next in the same color. I was bummed at first, because Noriko/Amore only make a few longer wigs in Harvest Gold (most of the wigs using this color are shorties) but then I remembered Tressallure wigs are the same as Norikos, and used a color conversion chart to figure out that Mocha Gold in that brand is the same color, and they have all sorts of wigs using that shade (their version of Angelica, Shilo, and Miranda all come in Mocha Gold). Now I just have to decide which to get first, of course.
I’m also showing my Almond Spice in Robin here; it’s another beautiful color, but I’m not nearly as in love with it as I am with the HG. Stay tuned for an upcoming review of Kristen by Jon Renau, too, in the new Toffee Truffle color from the Chocolate Collection!
