Ode To A Kick Ass Wig

The wig pictured here is the one I purchased back in 1999 for the character Virginia “Slim” Costellano, Phudie Mart’s Customer Service Manager. I think it cost about $38 (which in 1999 is more like $5,200), and at the time was definitely one of the more expensive props/costumes purchased by Schadenfreude (second only to the supplies and manpower needed to construct the Blaque Coque Hotel & Casino diorama in 2002).
In the screenplay we describe Slim’s hair as “Farrah Fawcett meets Stevie Nicks” and this wig is aptly named “The Farrah”.

This wig has spawned a few hopes and dreams on my part.
Fantasy #1: Someday I’ll see my wig in the Smithsonian, right next to Fonzie’s original jacket.
Fantasy #2: Stevie Nicks will find out about our screenplay and agree to sing “Leather & Lace” for Slim’s wedding scene. There isn’t a “Slim Wedding Scene” in the screenplay YET — but if Stevie got on board, you better believe we’d write an “scarf-o-rific”, amazing one.
Fantasy #3: Kanye West invites me on stage to sing the Adam Levine parts of “Heard ‘Em Say” — oh wait, different fantasy list…
