As a blogger, I get some random offers for products to review. Some are definitely not a great fit for a style blog, like medical supplies and air fresheners. Some are totally awesome, like this bonkers high-temperature resistant fiber wig from ABhair.
Abhair sells all kinds of wigs and weaves and extensions and stuff, but I have to say, offering me a selection from their hi-temp line was a good idea because they're all crazy, colorful instant anime hair and I was delighted from the word go. And just FYI, they didn't even ask me to link this specific product line, I just want you to see how fucking cool it is.
Here's what I have to say as a reviewer: I love it. That should be obvious, since the prospect of instantaneous day-glow blue, pink, and purple mermaid hair was enough to make me happy to stick on full coverage pasties and do this Blue Lagoon On Acid photoshoot in our jungle back yard.
Who could resist being able to indulge in the fantasy of looking like a living cartoon or fantasy character or just completely different from how you look every day? And the beauty of this wig is that while it's clearly not real hair, it's also much better quality than your average costume wig, which I tried to get across with some of these close ups. It's that perfect middle ground: It's not a $400 lifestyle choice made of real human hair, but it's also not some shit from Halloween USA, which makes it much easier to justify buying something kind of ridiculous. Most of these wigs are like $40 tops, so they can be a fun and insane impulse buy. If you're stylishly adventurous, into costumes, style models for fashion photography, or are into cosplay, go hit up Abhair.

Addendum: What fantastical character does this wig best fit, anyway?
As soon as I put it on, Gbear asserted that I looked like "Princess Celestia."
We talked about it for like five minutes before I realized Celestia is a pony. Meanwhile, with no connection, my co-worker Conal called this wig a dead ringer for Twilight Sparkle. I think they're both dead on.
Additionally, our buddy Cav suggested Rainbow, superheroine of the 80's indie comic DNAgents:
Totally awesome. Excuse us, we need to go raid Ebay for back copies of this.
Addendum to the addendum: MC already made this connection, apparently. He just gave me a bunch of old issues of DNAgents as an early birthday present, which he already ordered like a week ago. Synchronicity!
