Here is one that the crossdresser ladies going to Diva Las Vegas might find interesting from the late Jo Ann Roberts about 20 years ago. It helps keep your wig from getting squashed while packed in your suitcase. All you need is a plastic shoe box from any Home Depot type store that sells closet organizing stuff.
Mine measure 14 x 8 x 4 but if you wanted to put two or more wigs into one box you could increase the size but, I would not recommend that.
Once you remove your wig from the head stand holding it from the hairline in one hand, place your other hand inside the wig to support it.
Place a kitchen trash bag over it so that one of the bottom corners of the bag is directly over the top of the wig.
Set the bag on a table or flat surface pulling your arm out carefully then curl the excess bag around itself gently letting the air out of the bag so it will fit in the shoe box.
If done correctly when removed the wig will look just like it did when it was on the head stand. The box has sufficient room it it that the wig does not get crushed while traveling.
When you arrive at your destination remove the wig from the box and bag then and place it on a collapsible stand as pictured. Mine are wire but you can get plastic ones also. Another option is just to buy 1 quart sodas and place the wig over the bottle. Yet another would be to use wine bottles but then you have to hold the wig in one hand while drinking the wine with the other. We blondes have trouble doing that many things at once. especially in front of a mirror!
It has been many years since I have been to any type of crossdressing event having lost interest in the rubber chicken dinners and endless recognition awards. I have pondered Diva Las Vegas for some time because they say it is not like the conventions but rather a vacation. I have decided to attend this year so I will know in about two weeks or April 1st.
It sounds like a lot of fun but will take some getting used to because it takes place all over all week long. They have a texting system set up to keep everybody posted on events and changes. I like the idea that you can opt in or out of events leaving you time to do what you like. You can find out more at their website http://divalas.vegas/
It starts next Sunday so don’t wait too long to register if you are thinking of attending.
Just discovered this on Jaclyn’s youtube.com channel and although I have not tried it yet thought I would pass it on. She is great with makeup and I have learned a lot from her but prefer using cream foundation and contour cream as opposed to powder. I thought it was so cool that baking was something from the DRAG community. Once you are on her channel brows some of her other topics she is awesome for eye makeup.
With Diva Las Vegas just 3 1/2 weeks away I thought traveling girls might appreciate my recent discovery.
The pictures below are of my wig on a 13 inch head to give you an idea of how much space there is inside the case. Use 18 inch head for long wigs and 13 or 15 for smaller heads. I purchased this size because I hate my old boxes that are only are only 12 inches tall so the hair gets smashed down when traveling. Using a 13 or 15 inch head with the 21 inch box gives me plenty of room so the top stays looking great,
I got mine from Amazon.com but you can also go to Dini direct at http://diniwigs.com
