My votes for black but thats as much down to the cut as the colour. Watch black wigs as dark wig caps tend to stain the head and ears. If you must use dark colours ensure that they wear a skin colour nylon full cover wig cap at all times and powder the head well before putting the wig cap on (reduces oily seepage which is what causes the stains).

When we're talking wigs a very wise man (ok, Tommo! lol) told me that you don't let them sleep in their day wigs. Thats sound advice. Mine all have short wigs to sleep in regardless of the length of wig that they wear during the day.

So, I would go black wig for the day, red wig to sleep in.

Also, choose the new wig with the new head well and ensure that one is kept for best.

All the best,

Shamus.

Stop right there! Yes, I told you, and yes it is brilliant advice and it works, but this excellent information I got from Philinotstine, who possibly got it from Karrot, so really I cannot take any credit for that.

Tommo
I might also have got it from Karrot as well...

But, that last person to advise me about the wigs was definitely you

Ok, I'm playing the senility card now. lol.

Ordered head 59 a couple of weeks ago. She looks so sleepy, can't wait for her to arrive.

Amy, very nice to meet you

The black wig gets my vote as well, but as I think Shamus mentioned above, mainly because of the cut\style, its a hassle but I do like longer hair

Also looking forward to the arrival. I've never seen an 'end user' photo of the #59, other than a bit of mandos magic.

She WILL be sleepy after her long journey.

Can't wait, ordered her 10 days ago from andyp, was hoping for factory pics but heard nothing yet. Maybe they only do that with whole dolls.
