Once I determined who my Jamie and Claire Fraser would be, it was time to jump into action. Iplehouse EID Leonard on Superhero body is to be Jamie while Iplehouse EID Carina is going to be Claire.
Here are some pictures of the characters from the Outlander TV series 2014. Both have curly hair – Jamie’s reddish-brown (a bit more red in the books than in the film) and Claire’s is more dark-brown (described in the books as brownish-auburn, but I am following the film).
A more refined moment – it’s their wedding – with a different hairstyle.
So, I have found a few curly wigs for Jamie.
This is the wig I like most unless I manage to find something even better. It is red but not too bright which is what I wanted. It is a bit too curly, I think. I had to cut it quite a bit and I think, I will have to give it a wash to flatten the top of it and to make the curls a bit loose. But on the whole I am quite happy with the look.
And I have also managed to find a perfect wig for Claire. The wig on the pictures is NOT the one I am going to use, but since the right wig hasn’t arrived yet, and I need to send Jamie’s head for a face-up asap, I decided to take photos in this one. The final wig will be exactly the same, but in black-brown colour. I wonder if I should cut it shoulder length as well?
I am not planning to repaint Claire’s face – I like her present face-up by Ariadne and I think she looks great as it is.
So, now Jamie is going away for a while to get a face-up. I am sure when he returns he will leave me in awe!
