…that’s kind of a decent Rogue wig. Of course, now I’m going to have to make a costume (in, you know, my copious free time), because it’s one thing to wear my hair like that and something else to actually spend money on a wig.

Rogue wig!

Sank oo! Now if I could figure out when and how to make a costume... :)

I wonder, would it be too short for the 'Farah Fawcett' head-banded Rogue look?
(I think I'll always believe Rogue's hair is all about the volume and curl. You know, the Rogue that should have been a character in Jem and the Holograms but instead got put in the X-Men. :-p )

I've never seen anybody successfully do the headband look on a cosplay for Rogue. I think it requires either real hair or a hugely expensive wig (or Jim Lee following you around re-drawing your hair all day).

*love for the Jem reference* :)

:) I suppose, very few people can look good with a back combed mullet, with a head band.=)
The same can be said of all 80's hairstyles.

So all in all, that is a pretty darned cool wig for the straight haired Rogue look... but, which costume will accompany it?

Now, see, I'd argue that practically everybody in the 80s was pretty, with the big silly foofy hair and all. I think there are much less attractive styles you could pick. :)

Anyway, it's less the hairstyle than the limitations of wigs. They have to be very good to be able to comb them back, nevermind to weave a headband through them decently. I could probably do pretty good 80s Rogue hair with my real hair, but not right now. :)

I'm inclined to the X-Treme costume, probably, just because I think red and blue are easier to carry off as colors than yellow and green. One of the more traditional green ones might be cool too. If I was gonna do the movie costume I'd use my own hair. :)

Good wig, no more bleach worries!
