I'm going wig shopping real soon. The last wig I bought was this cheap "Biblical Character" wig and beard combo. It's my go-to for when I play Manson:
Charlie reads poetry at Jim Martyka's Dead Beat Poet's Society, hosted by Write/Act Rep.
Brolesque Superstar-in-the-making Steak N. Shake debuts at Peepshow Menagerie
And Red has worn the beard as a terrorist:
Dizzy VonDamn! shows a little patriotism with the help of Red Snapper at Victory Variety Hour's The Wrong Show.
But I'm looking for something a little more sophisticated. Something a little more ... Vincent Vega.
Red and Mr. Snapper give the Monday Night Tease audience a little Jack Rabbit Slim's action at The Quentin Tarantino Burlesque Film Festival.
When we first performed the act at The Quentin Tarantino Burlesque Film Festival, I wore a clip-on ponytail. My hair was long enough, it worked. The second year my hair was too short, and I went without. The number didn't really suffer for it, but Vincent Vega's silhouette is defined by his hair. Am I right?
A fellow burlesque performer and professional wig-wrangler gave me the address of a wig store that should have what I'm looking for. You wouldn't believe how hard it is to find a men's black ponytail wig that doesn't look like complete shit.
Just one of the few commercially available men's black ponytail wigs. They all pretty much look like this.
I mean, c'mon!
I've never gone serious wig shopping. This will be a new experience for yours truly. I'll be sure to blog about it.
More awesome Tarantino Burlesque Film Festival photos can be found on the Monday Night Tease website.
