Halloween Bargain Wig Shopping Tip #22a: Going as Jennifer Aniston? Awesome. If you actually ARE Jennifer Aniston, & have lots of dough to spend, you can get a custom-made, lace-front wig online for a mere $260, like the “Zara” @wigs.com.
Orrrr u can be creatively thrifty in your wig shopping technique. I found a good alternative in the little girl’s section at a Ricky’s phamacy. Though the grown-up wigs at Ricky’s were still a MUCH cheaper option than the fancy lace-front wigs, they were still on the pricey side (especially for something that is not returnable or exchangeable, & will probably be vomited on at some point). They went for $40-$50. But then my eyes wandered to the kids’ section. I mean… how much smaller can a kid’s head BE, right? Not much. But the PRICES of the kids’ wig WERE much smaller. I chose the “Yasmin” wig from Bratz’ “Girls Rock!” line. At just $14.95, it wasn’t super high-quality, but it was actually much closer in look to Aniston’s ever-changing “do.” I don’t even know if I will wind up going as Jennifer on Halloween.
Maybe I’ll get REALLY ambitious and go as Justifer. Or Jeneroux. I don’t know if the duo has trademarked their coupledom yet. But who knows? With a little trimming & styling, even Theroux might mistake me for his lady & accidentally kiss me on Halloween. Maybe? Like… if he’s reeeeeeally really drunk? No? Not even then?
Well then I’m gonna just do a repeat of last year’s high concept costume: an exhibitionist Afghani Muslim stripper forced to cover herself by Al Queda. It’s super easy- all you need is a bikini, a clear shower curtain liner, and lots of emotional scars from constant oppression. Check, check, annnnnd check!
