Needing a new hair project...

I so desperately want to do another wig project.  As stated before I want to do a purple wig.  Actually what I really want to do is an ombre wig with purple as the palette color.  And for the record, ombre is pronounced ohm-buwh, not Ahm-bray.  You're not lassoing a long horn steer to the ground John Wanye!  You're shadowing something.  My current hair has the ombre effect, but pink isn't really my deal.  Don't get me wrong, it's cute and all, but pink hasn't really been a favorite color of mine since I was about 5 years old.  Besides, I only decided on the ombre pink palette, because I really wanted something different with my hair and that was the only available wild color they had at the hair spot at the time.

So now that I've test driven weird color hair and liked it, I'm going to continue the trend and try to make an ombre purple palette wig.  The problem is, most hair colors only come in light pinks or light blues; purple is only the dark purple and not usually in the light violet color I would need to complete the shading.  Plus I'm having some trouble locating "Piano" Purple with 1B.  What I mean by "Piano" is weft hair that has purple mixed with the 1B color, like this but with purple instead of red.  The "Piano" effect will blend with the darker natural color of my hair as the shading goes down the layers of wig, it will change from purple/ 1B to dark purple, then finally the light purple.  This way, it's not such a shock to the system to see a head full of dark purple and then a light purple, it helps people gradually adjust to the color.  Think of it as a compromise for my "adult" side.

But I may have to end up scrapping the purple palette if I can't find a light shade of purple for the bottom layer of hair.  But before I give up, I'll have to check out my hair spot again and see what they have.  And I need to do it soon, because I'm dying to make a new wig.
