|Barrister's Wig Free Pattern!|
Then the wig took a downfall in fashion, and wasn't quite so popular for some time. They were used only by people who had thinning, or had lost their hair.
Today, wigs are everywhere again, thanks to technology and advances in synthetic fibers. and also thanks to mega media icons. Wigs and hair extensions have once again become a normal fashion accessory. They are still even used as cultural practices and for social stature in some parts of the world!
So there's a brief history of fashion wigs, which leads me to my favorite part of wearing a wig, which is just for pure fun and costume! They have been forever present in theater and movies, and are the perfect accessory to play "someone else"! Sometimes wigs can be very cheap from the typical costume wigs that you see at Halloween to the outrageous masterpieces created by professional costume designers.
Tying all of these things together, of course there's got to be such thing as a crochet wig! When I think of a yarn wig, I think of dolls with their yarn hair, but there are some really cool yarns out there to give you a completely different look! But not limited to yarn type, I've even seen some wigs come to life by using special stitch work and patterns!
I remember my very fist experience with a yarn wig. My mother made me a "witch hair" wig for Halloween when I was a child, out of grey Phentex slipper yarn, which was perfect for a witch! About 10 years ago, I made a black doll hair wig for myself, complete with bangs and pigtails. It was awesome!
|That's me many years ago :D|
I've been scrolling through the internet, seeking cool crochet wig designs, and I've come across so many! Not all are "free"of course, and I will only post the free ones. But if you have time, go check out "crochet wigs" on Etsy, you won't be disappointed!
Will you make your own fun wig? I'd love to see your creations, post them on our Facebook Wall!
