My tarzan mane. It's back.
This is the first time I've ever shown my dread fall wig on this blog. Which is weird, because I used to wear it all the time. I got a lot of compliments, a lot of looks, and a lot of questions when I wore it last semester. The reason I stopped wearing it so much, is because it's about five extra pounds on my neck! It gets sort of painful if I wear it too many days in a row. And the itchiness. Oh the itchiness.
But it's my lazy-day, go-to, don't-want-to-dry-my-hair, hat. 
I love this wig because I love dread locks. I love the natural ones more than my synthetics, but I also love my hair. I love it too much to let it mat. So I decided last semester to make this wig. I had made synthetic dreads before. Back when I was a rave baby, I made entire sets of multicolored synthetic dread to party in. This particular hair piece took about five days of labor, and about 60 double ended dreads. I love it. 
The rest of the outfit is pretty girly throw-together. I feel that this wig should be worn with something fairly gentle to balance it out.
Until next time, lay in the sunshine.

(PS: Is anyone else noticing the strange glares I'm getting on my photos? I have no idea what it is, nor how to fix it. Has anyone had these problems with the Nikon coolpix l120? Share!)
