FO: Creative hair for the King and I UPDATED with Snood
So, several of you might have heard me mention that I am the lead costumer of the King and I musical being performed here locally in Huntsville, AL and if not, now you have! One of the portions of the play is a ballet performed by the King's wives - Small House of Uncle Thomas (Uncle Tom's Cabin) and Topsey has hair that rivals Pippy Longstockings. Well, as costumer, this somehow fell under my juristiction to create or get, or something... so I knitted it! In two days! I am happy about that.

Here's a pic and yes, that is me modeling the finished product... hard to tell which is my hair and which is the "wig"

It's amazing what 3 long Icords and some flower wire can do isn't it?

It's not surprising that you are the lead costumer. You're obviously very creative. It looks just like Pippy's except it's not red!

Looks fab! I was lucky enough to see The King and I on stage with Yul Brynner in the role. He was amazing.
