Behind the Scenes: Sculpting Wigs


So what I’m working on is our Queen of
Hearts. I’m Cherelle, Hair and Wig Designer for Alice in Wonderland here at the Oregon Shakespeare Festival and this is what we call a hair
sculpture. And so what we’ve done is we’ve gone around and attached wefts, some custom mixed and are blended wefts and we’re going in and adhering the wefts to
this foam material that actually is the shape of a heart from the front and the
back. So that is what I’m working on today. So a project like this is one that
takes several hours and it’s actually done cross-departmentally in chunks,
as there are several steps that have to be taken in order to achieve. Here at the
Oregon Shakespeare Festival we are lucky enough to have our very own Crafts
Department and so Roxanna was the crafts person who actually created this
masterpiece. So I design it along with Helen who is our Costume Designer and
Roxanna creates it. So, it took kind of weeks for us to have
conversations and talk so we can kind of get together and decide what the overall
build would be like and anyone who builds anything knows that in order to
have a very nice house the first thing you have to think about is the
foundation. It’s the same thing for the hair sculptures and same thing for the
wigs. So you’ll see me go over this over and over again. What I’m doing is I’m
actually laying it to see how the hair curves over, while checking the blend. Alice in Wonderland is one of my all-time favorite shows. It’s a fantasy show there’s so many different themes and characters that
really speak to me and have spoken to me since I was a child and I am very
honored and excited to design it. Alright, now let me get back to work.
