"I would love to have some help creating these once I get it off the ground.  Right now I am working on an idea that I think will make it faster to create, and therefore keep the retail price down a bit.  What city do you live in?"

"Hi Coco!  Sorry for my delayed reply.  You actually wear it like any other wig.  I don't have any problems with slippage at all, even though I have a completely smooth head.  But if you are concerned about slippage,…"

"I applaud you for creating a yarn wig and wanting to use the idea to help others.  Its cute, but I need bangs (forehead covering) and I'm not sure what the thing is that goes under your chin.  Reminds me of a Muslim headcovering.…"

I'm pretty excited about this.  I've had alopecia since I was 15, so I've been through hiding under wigs for at least 15 years.  I found that it made it more difficult for me to be honest and open about my condition because the whole idea was to pretend that it was my hair.  There is no shame in wearing a wig and we should feel…See More

Posted on October 23, 2015 at 4:35pm 3 Comments

I wrote this blog post on my art website about a year ago, and having just discovered the Alopecia World website, have decided to share it here for fellow alopecians.  Any comments are welcome.

Thanks for the note! I have been so busy I haven't had time to reply. We were on our way to Paris when the bombing happened and that created a whole bunch of ramifications for our trip. Then Thanksgiving and birthdays (mine and my fiance's). Anyway, yes, we can get together sometime if you like. Where in Portland are you?
