Children love to pretend to be someone else. They love to dress up as their favorite storybook characters. Girls love to be princesses, brides, teen idols, or the damsel in distress. Boys love to be, policemen or firemen, famous athletes, rock stars, or super-heroes looking to save that damsel in distress. Kids love to pretend to be adults, too.
Now that you are older, that desire to put on a fun costume and pretend to be someone else is still there inside you. You can dress up as your favorite childhood storybook character and relive the dreams of your youth. Maybe you never became that famous rock star you dreamed of becoming, but you can go a party dressed as one.
Let's suppose you've been invited to a masquerade or just a fun, community costume party. You and some friends have decided to go as Goldilocks and the Three Bears. Well, bear costumes usually cover your entire body, including the head, so that easy. You may even have blonde hair; but how authentic would your costume look without the classic long, flowing, big curly, gold hair of a Goldilocks wig?
If you are a guy, could you really go to a costume party dressed as Elvis without the classic Elvis hair? Of course not! If you're a girl, could you go to a party dressed as Cruella Deville without black and white hair?
This is where fancy dress wigs can save you all of the time and expense of trying to fix your own hair to match your costume. You could easily spend more money at a hair stylist trying to get your natural hair to look like your character's hair than you would spend on the perfect costume wig. Plus, you can use the wig again for another party or pass it along to a friend to keep the magic going!
There are lots of costume wigs available for many famous people and characters here at Altered Image Fancy Dress. If you don't have a specific character in mind, don't worry, there are dress wigs to match almost every theme, hair style, length or colour.
So the next time you are invited to a costume party, remember that no costume is complete without the perfect matching dress wig to go with it. Wigs are fun and affordable. Go get your wig and become the character of your dreams!
