Feather Wigs

may have seen their best days now that SD has released their own wig shop. but i don't wont to get ahead of myself. a few days ago the a special new store was opend called TRESS UP. with this store SD has finally oblige the wish of many stardollians to create a wig store. i know i am a bit late to inform you about the shop opening (but this is not a SDnews blog its a blog where i share my thoughts with you about SD and fashion) but as this store opened its doors i thought it would be a nice opportunity to use my favourite kind of list ever ... PROS AND CONS!

starting with the PROS

when i first visit the shop i was really impressed by the quality of the wigs, the are well done
and looking even better as some of the hairstyles you can choose at the beauty parlor.

the fact stardoll uses the dip dye effect is just wonderful, as you know i am a huge fan of dip dying and i had always difficulties to create that effect on stardoll.
(this can also be a a con argument depends on your point of view) the feather wigs are no longer the only alternative to get different kind of hairstyles than the ones the beauty parlor is offering us. 

ending with the CONS 

there is only one wig for non superstars and its really the ugliest of all the wigs, its nice that SD brought us some new hairstyles but why do we have to buy them at all, the just could have released some new beauty parlor hairstyles couldn't they? but i think SD saw how much money the wig designers made and they just want a share of the cake. 

even though i really like the dip dye effect its annoying that you can not change the color of the dip dye or you can change it but i haven't found out how do it yet. 

and as i said in the pros. the argument that you finally have a alternative besides the feather wigs is also negative for those who sell feather wigs and for those who like them. i mean ok you can still buy feather wigs but the SD wigs are cheaper and of course they look more realistic as the SD grafik designer don't have to use feathers to creat them. 


for me the SD tress up shop is a classic two edged sword, its nice to finally have some more choices if you really don't like those feather wigs (i just think most of them look like you draw a really ugly paint picture and put it on your medolls head)  but its also not fair to all the non superstars to sell those new wigs instead of adding them to the beautyparlor for free. 


i created an outfit for every wig i bought to show you how these nice hairstyles can give your medolls look a whole different direction, 

 i really like this wig because it reminds me of this wildfox campaign which was inspired by marie antoinette, france and baroque itself. thats why i choose a soft dress, the chanel earrings and to make it look a bit more royal the golden LE roses. i decided to use a shiny and glamours make up to gave her an expensive look (i hope you know what i mean haha).  

this wig is made for a doll with a strong character. if you prefer your doll to look more elegent soft and feminin i would not choose this hairstyle. to underline the powerfull attitude this wig creats i use hard materials like leather and metal. the blue dip dye gives the whole look something dark and deep thats why i use a dark brown as normal hair color. the make up needed to be edgy and sharp so i draw a black eye lid line. the blue eyeshadow makes the face look some kind of cold which i really like. 

this last wig reminded me of AUDREY KITCHING (one of these it girls which got famous for just nothing) thats why i decided to create some kind of velvet punk look this means i used a soft make up focusing on the a light purple coloring, the lightly waved wig also helps us to build a more feminin punk inspired look. the leather jacket, the queen shirt and the worn out jeans helps to get more authenticity into the whole outfit.

befor i end this post i have to say i am very proud that the newest windows of the world floors are inspired by germany which is my homecountry and for all those who don't speak german i am glad to translate the shop name: "sprechen sie deutsch?" means "do you speak german?". but thats it for today

stay edgy
