You can almost make an entire costume out of a fanciful wig. Said wig definitely has to be something extraordinary, but these octopus hair designs by Kirstie Williams, a.k.a. deeed on DeviantArt, more than fit the bill. The octopus hairpieces function as fascinators that you pin to your existing hair or onto another wig like a hat. Williams first showed off her creative wig stylng last summer. She wrote a how-to explaining how she crafted the octopus hair with a foam sphere, a wig, and wefts. But if you don’t feel up to the challenge of make a cephalopod from hair, Williams now offers the pieces for sale on Etsy. They’re available via commission and prices are around $90 and up (they ship from Australia).
Williams has made a white octopus wig to go with a wedding dress and wigs in all colors of the rainbow. You could wear one of these wigs with a simple black dress and make quite the entrance or you could pair the octopus hairpiece with an entire steampunk ensemble.
