Thanks to everyone who voted (some votes were sent to me privately). I’ve decided to get the wig in picture 1 just for fun (and maybe job interviews! LOL) and will wait on getting another, more “sensible” wig (who needs sensible? This is cancer, baby! I want fun!) for teaching. My friend KD suggested wisely that I wait to see if the hair actually does fall out before spending any more money on wigs. Pic #2 is the beautiful wig my friend from the BCO support group sent me (but in marble brown). Pic #3 is the winning wig, although the old #2 (pictured below it) was a close second. If needed, I will probably get the wig pictured at the bottom, #4, although if I have the money, I’d like to get #3.
Update 3/31/08: This morning I purchased #3/3a in Cherry Cola (the color pictured) from Name Brand Wigs (http://www.namebrandwigs.com/) They have the best prices on the internet, and the customer service folks are very sweet and helpful. I’ll post a photo of myself in it when it arrives, probably next Monday (4/7).
Update 4/8/08: The new wig (#3) is pretty but it’s too poofy. I look like Rebecca on “Cheers!” I’m exchanging it for wig #4, pictured below, in Ginger Brown (http://www.acewigs.com/shop/color_browser.php).
