Me and the Wig

Posted on Mar 23, 2013 at 8:02 PM in Photography





An artist friend once commented to me that photographers typically don’t like the limelight; they enjoy hiding behind their camera to capture others who like to perform. I was quick to tell her I actually like being front and center just fine. Years of theater work confirms this, as does the giant wig featured in these images. And yet, I’ve hesitated in posting the photos here. Why is that? Apparently I’m more self-conscious than I thought I was! So here you are, a little art featuring me and a giant wig that I purchased for a party last night. This is me getting over myself. Enjoy!

A quick aside here… After donning the wig I was told by my child that I looked like one of my favorite singers. Lauryn Hill, she said. I have no idea how Liv knows what Lauryn Hill looks like, but I’ll run with it. Thanks for the high compliment! xoxo from Livia’s White Lauryn Hill Lookalike Mama

    I think you are rocking that wig. And thanks for the shout-out about my self-portraits. Keep at it! And when are we getting together?!?!
