A wig to die for?
I’m a greedy Cross-dresser. My wife (bless her) lets me indulge, and boy do I take advantage. In another post I’ll enumerate the contents of the stuffed closets in my den, but today I’m thinking of wigs.
I have three drawers-full – short, medium and long. My favourite wigs are blond, straight and long, but I have a good collection of darker ones too. I bought two more just last week on e-bay, mainly ‘cos I suspected no-one would treat me for Christmas. These were from a new supplier, who is obviously tapping into a Japanese manufacurer – the cut, and fibre is quite dissimilar from the Chinese ones.
In my lust to be more perfect, a wig made of real hair always seemed the most desirable. And indeed I bought one (well 50% real hair) only a year ago. Sure enough, as a dark brown 23” wig, it’s the most lustrous thing in my wardrobe. Like my fake boobs, it’s not mine own, but just brushing my fingers through it, is a turn-on. I’ve even been casually looking on the web for one that’s blonde, and 100%.
That was, until I heard a programme on the radio about women, being killed, especially in
. Some are severely mutilated. Now I’m sure, or rather I really sincerely hope, that no-one is hurt in harvesting the human hair for my wigs. But it makes you think – what woman will willingly cut off her hair? Or is so desperate that she sells her crowning glory? At an average of ½-inch growth per month, hair for such a wig as I desire, would take 3 years to grow. If I can buy a real hair wig for $200, how little did she get anyway? Mexico
Isn’t that sad? In deference to my sisters, I’ll stick with the modacrylic. (Though I do sometime worry that, wearing a long wig, if I accidentally eat some with my dinner, the fibre will wrap itself round my guts like fishing line in a swan’s gizzard)
