When figuring out the style of my new medieval costume, I also needed to think about hairstyles and headwear. And since my own cropped hair wouldn’t do for any historical hairstyling what so ever, I needed something to cover it up.
I started to seearch for sutable headwear on the internet, but was constantly drawn back to my original inspirational picture:
So my next step was to by a wig.
I wanted a long-haired wig, in a colour that would be axcepted as and look simular to mine.
But these cheep wigs have a way of being horrible and ugly in real life, so you never know until you tryed it on.
But I knew I could not use it as it where because of the bangs, and the heat stroke I would get by wearing a syntetic wig.
Then it was time to do the headcloth.
I then cut and hemmed the cresent shaped whimple, and draped it on top of the braids, securing it by pinning it to the headband behind the ears.
Now I just need to get it to look this good tomorrow – and hopefuly stay that way all night…
