The young adventuress, who had taken to daily absinthe rinses, revealed the result of her ablutions. Her verdant tresses were so ghastly that we started back in horror.
If I had one more thumb I would give this 3 thumbs down.
Now this would make a great Lady Gaga toddler accessory.
So is this “supplies”? “vintage”? It’s certainly not handmade by her…
wow! Gone already!!
Ooops, bad link. Fixed it. – HK
When Hairy Met Silly.
Well, it is “ultra teaseable.” Maybe she planned to get taunted for this.
What is Kanekalon? Fur from a Dr. Seuss character?
MAYBE steam punk minus the steam, but more probably just lame green.
‘Curly-straight’. Wet-dry. Punk-steampunk.Raver -shmaver.Emo-cyber pan pizza.
Nuthin’ means nuthin’.
Anyhoo, the listing is down already-the infinite & far reaching power of regretsy?!
now THERE’S a color found in nature!
how exactly is this thing “cyber”? can i use it multipurpose with my vintage Ipod?
and how many My Little Ponies did you have to kill to make this, highlighter head?
Buzzkill here ya go…
I hate when my steampunk hair is curly straight.
I missed the ‘Lolita’ tag. Yikes, poor Nabokov would be turning green in his grave.
@ hamoza- Lolita is a subculture fashion in Japan where girls where clothing influenced by rococo and victorian attire. As seen here; http://www.classicalvalues.com/lolita.jpg
There are many types of lolita, so the wig does fit in that category.
It’s what all the dystopian dirigible drivers are wearing this season.
Thanks Japanda- besides laughing my ass off, I truly do learn something new each time I visit Regretsy!
I remember way back in my youth, donning my chrome goggles and using that steam-powered hair dryer to tease up my lime green wig. It was so hard to get that kind of lift because the steam from the dryer kept frizzing it up.
We earned our teased, straight, lime-green hair in those days.
Then Derrick would zip by in his zeppelin and we’d chuckle at all the silly people with the flat hair.
Amy Winehouse’s hair-do + Exposure to atomic waste = steampunk.
Here’s a break-down:
geekery: most geeks I know have Mr. Spock hair
accessory/hair/fake hair: I guess…
lolita: I thought lolita is supposed to be innocent looking
goth/scene/emo/punk: these terms are interchangeable nowadays anyway
steampunk: see above
hair peice: dunno what that is
teal: teal is bluish-green, not neon green
cosplay: okay I gave up
This is approximately as teal as it is steampunk.
every time this category comes up i always think of this:
Ceci N’est Pas Une Steampunk?
well, maybe not…
#9, Why, “Highlighter head” LOL!
This is what happened to Elvira, Mistress of the Dark after she moved in next door to the nuclear power plant.
Looking at this wig makes me really, really want a coupla jello shots.
You can get the same thing at Wal-Mart for a helluva lot cheaper.

this isn’t even a good Regretsy entry…
“THE ANSWER IS YESH!”
I guess the question was ‘are you kidding with thish?’
Nor is it Queen. Freddie Mercury had much better wigs than this.
lime green?!? more like blinding green my eyes hurt after staring at this crap
At least the model isn’t doing the Blue Steel face.
i rest my case
My son, Jason, dressed up for the 2009 Prom.
Not tagged Vegan? Not buying it!
I doubt even a Victorian doxy would put this overpriced wreck on her head.
This is totally overpriced. I worked in a store that sold these in SF and the most any of them went for was $49.
This is why you don’t use ecstasy.
At # 29 Patty- I would hit on your son, but blue steel just makes me want to hit him.
She could have it delivered by dirigible and it still wouldn’t even be able to see steampunk from where it is.
Hk and Regretsians, I have to say thank you. I had a terrible afternoon today and to be able to come home and laugh at all your witty snarkasms is priceless.
I only wish you all had been there at the job interview that didin’t happen. Thank you!
(it’s ok to thumb this down, I know it’s off topic)
there are episodes of lois and clark: the new adventures of superman that are more steampunk than any of the “steampunk wigs in this girl’s shop.
Chlorinepunk – YES
Greenpunk – YES
steampunk – sadly NO
Miss Demented? More like Miss Directed.
I do love her shirt, though.
And, well… this happened:
Hmmm, I don’t think it’s just wigs she’s selling…
See what I mean?
Scrapmetal, she certainly is! Most unladylike.
What? You steam it to straighten it. And green hair is very punk, right? So how’s that NOT SteamPunk??
@ #19 cecikierk: Cosplay =
Now you know.
Now I am afraid to drink absinthe…….
…also, why are her earrings and hairclips “calibrated” to 6g??? Is that the standard sale unit of some recreational substance?
…call me innocent.
#47 I think that is so ppl can gauge out their ears.
Where the hell is Nor Cal?
to # 49, It’s just above Sou Cal.
so she buys crap wigs on clearence at the halloween store after season for about 4 bucks each, then hacks them, I mean “LAYERS” them, teases the bejeezus outta the roots, and the sells them for $80 bucks??
You’d think with that kind of racket she’d be a bit happier in her pictures.
I also love the ” im totally scene and uber cool” candid (*cough*) high angle shots, with her arm OBVIOUSLY extended out fo frame. Oh, silly kids.
Looks like she got this at the scratch & dent sale at the Spirit Store.
Well, slap a wig on me and send me to a Panic at the Disco! concert. If I ever see one of these kids get a picture taken straight-on and not from some stupid overhead angle I’ll die of shock.
I think the poor girl has etsy confused with her myspace profile. All her professional pictures must have ended up over there by mistake.
I think this is very steampunk.
…no, wait…. not steampunk….
@#55 mtopia: At least she doesn’t have any taken in her bathroom mirror.
Okay, as stupid as this is for being listed steampunk, I have to defend her on one front. She most likely has at least styled the wigs herself. Have you seen wigs like this just out of the package? HORRENDOUS. I’m a cosplay weirdo who has to buy wigs in crazy colors and styles, and anything straight out of a Halloween package is going to look like it was styled with a weedwhacker. Whether its overpriced or bad from a stylist point of view, I can’t say, but it’s not a straight resale.
too much chlorine in the pool.
At #31 Why, oh yeah, I was in total agreement!
Say what you want about her, she has a really nice moustache.
God I want to kick those expressions off her face.
But wait…she has a biohazard neckthing on…it’s got to be steampunk…er…or…angsty?
Until now, the only other person I ever heard use the term “ablutions” was my friend Allan, and he has Asperger’s Syndrome….
(Allan played Elvis Costello in your E! demo video at The Brewery in 2003)
yeah not remotely handmade
This reminds me of the Japanese anime characters. They have hairstyles that come in layers. What is distinct about them is that they come in bright colors. This lime green shade is surely a standout.
