Whoo, that Angelica in Illumina-R was pretty polarizing – some of you loved it, some of you hated it, but everyone had an opinion! As a palate cleanser, let me share this video of Janelle so we can all move on. Just kidding, everyone; even those who disliked Angelica on me did so with tongue firmly planted in cheek, so no hard feelings (kudos to Neo1 who won with best snark by telling me I had to pay for my wig sins with “three hail Mareys”).
Personally, I don’t care for it either. Angelica, I mean; Janelle is LOVELY. Why isn’t this one getting more attention? I don’t see or hear a lot about her, but she’s a keeper. I was having a hard time comparing her to anything else I’ve tried when I was filming, but in looking at the vid she reminds me most of Amore’s Brandi. Janelle comes in a wider array of colors and isn’t quite as heavy, though; Janelle also stays out of the face better than Brandi, which has a pretty chronic face-flopping problem.
Also, while filming, the wig was reading so dark in the flip screen, but when I viewed it on my computer the color looked more accurate. Who knows. I still barely understand all this video stuff. Speaking of video stuff – Vimeo is waiting for Apple to release an iOs update to fix the whole can’t-view-it-on-a-mobile-device thing, so for now I’ve adjusted my privacy settings more than I’d like to avoid the inevitable slew of “I can’t play the video” comments I’ve been getting on every review lately… 😉 I do wish Apple would get a move on and fix whatever’s wrong so I can maintain tighter privacy control again; y’all know what a control freak I am about my vids.
Anyway, here’s Janelle in Chocolate Swirl (oh and by the way, one of the film editors I used downloaded a bunch of Spring-themed transitions, so I had to use them even though they are corny as hell. Sorryboutit):
And yes, I did actually say in the video that the monofilament part “looks kind of well.” And this from a former English teacher?! I have no idea how that came out of my mouth.
