I know I want to bring out her "earthiness" and I am really surprised that the photos aren't showing how lovely her green skin tone actually is. Again, another reason why to choose the right color for her hair as that can affect how green she can look too.
I first tried a brown wig that was just too ordinary for her and really neutralized her skin tone. Which makes sense since red and green mixed together creates brown and is to close in the color family.
Next, in the natural thought process is that since Parsley is probably older than dirt, that she should also have a head full of white hair. Now I don't look at the style of the hair because any wig can be restyled, it is the color that I am looking at. The white hair did bring out her green skin tones a little more in the photo but didn't do much for her in the "real" world. Too much contrast between her skin and the hair... almost like a black and white comparison.
Other conventional hair colors just did not do it either. Blonde, red, brunette, and shades in between. Nothing enhanced her enough, so, off to try something else.
In the meantime I went shopping because I knew I wanted dreadlocks added to her hair. Parsley needed a wild and unkempt look to her. I found this fabulous looking yarn that was even better when I started playing with it. It smoothed out and was so silky looking that I knew it would be perfect for Parsley's hair. Adding a little green roving wool for texture was the direction I decided to take.
So then I upped the game with blending in a little white wool with the green wool to give some depth and contrast. Now Parsley's eyes took on a sparkle and I knew that I had what I needed to start pulling her hair style together.
Now Parsley and I are off to create magic with her hairdo. Until next time...
