Wig stand substitute
Post By Rolly. 07/10/09, 09:03 am

So guys, I'm too lazy to go buy a polystyrene wig head right now... and I was wondering if you can use something that can act as a substitute?
Do any of you use something else than a wig head to style your wigs? :O
Can I use something else rather than a wig head?

I use a plastic skull I brought last year for halloween... I do not recomend.

I have heard of people using sodabottles upside down before. I am not sure how it would balance though =D

Camera tripod, with a light plastic bowl placed on the handle used for spinning the thing around.

Just in theory, but it could work. 8D I know you can use tripods as a stand for a head, so it's just finding out whether or not a bowl can = a head.

.....scrunch up a big bunch of newspaper, and wrap it up with duct tape until it's head-shaped?

Joes Emporium in Howick sells the heads, but if you're too lazy too make the trip then that info is irrelevant. XP

@JVCA, for future reference, how much is one of those wig heads at Joe's Emporium?

For now, I'll try a bowl or something... maybe blow a balloon up as well. Thanks for the suggestions guys, keep them coming!

@Rolly: Not a clue sorry - they're the standard female wig head size if that helps at all. n_n;
