Step by Step Wig Guide

Wigs are an important part of costuming. It helps us transform physically into our favorite characters, particularly if the character has a specific hair color or style.

It can be a challenge to cover up.  I manage to hide it well and my routine is quite simple. Here is  a step by step guide to how I personally wear a wig.

Shit Fan Boys Say

Comic and Pop Culture Conventions can be a lot of fun but unfortunately the exciting environment can give some attendees a level of disconnect with humanity. The sight of their favorite characters brought to life through Cosplay clouds their minds. Manners and respect are seemingly left at the door as they engage in bizarre conversations with Cosplayers.  Below are a  few examples of my personal interactions with "fan boys" throughout the years. All of these exchanges happened IRL.

Professional Princess Performing: It's Not Cosplay

In November of 2013 I started my own birthday party business. The idea came about after having a conversation with a friend who has been doing Princess Parties for many years.
