55 Redhead Cosplay Characters

Redhead Cosplay Character Ideas – 55 Of Them!

I LOVE being a redhead, and one of my favorite things about it is using my hair as a centerpiece in costumes. Cosplay as a redhead is quite easy – there are a multitude of characters primed and ready for gingerfied costuming.

How does this differ from our list of Halloween costume ideas for redheads? Cosplay (in my estimation) tends to favor source material from the geekiverse (particularly anime/manga and videogames), whereas regular costumes derive more from general knowledge.

Also, while Halloween costumes are pretty occasion-specific and often involve scary (and/or lazy) elements, cosplay can be worn to cons throughout the year and usually involves a fair amount of effort in putting the ensemble together. As such, it may benefit you to read both lists in order to get a full list of costumes together. Continue reading “Redhead Cosplay Character Ideas – 55 Of Them!” »

Why Do People Dye Their Hair Extravagant Colours?

Dying one’s hair is quite a common thing these days, although natural hair colour is usually what people go for. What’s less common is people dying their hair unnatural shades such as bright red, purple and blue. Colours can be mixed and the results can be really extravagant, with vivid bonnets that make people stand out from a mile away. Some people think dying your hair different colours is odd, unattractive and immature. So why do people do it?

Why Dye?

One great reason why people would want to dye their hair unusual colours is for their rebellious nature. Brightly coloured hair is a punk thing to do and that’s exactly what the punk rockers did back in the 70’s and beyond. Punk was anti-establishment and the one thing that got the man angry was youths with bright hair. Brands like Manic Panic from New York provided the essential hair dye the punks needed to rile up stuffy conservatives.

Having coloured hair as an act of rebellion has gone beyond just punk rock though. Ravers, goths, emos, hippies, scene kids and anyone with an eye for the alternative have dyed their hair bright colours simply to differentiate themselves from everyone else. The fact coloured hair is banned in schools and most places of work only adds to its rebellious credentials.

LOreal Feria Multi-Faceted Shimmering Haircolor Review Feature

L’Oreal Feria Multi-Faceted Shimmering Haircolor Review

LOreal Feria Multi-Faceted Shimmering Haircolor ReviewI’ll tell you a secret: I color my hair at home. It’s a beauty no-no, I know – but to pay 6x less and come out with color that’s more like what I wanted to begin with, I’ll take it.

As such, I’m always searching for a great at-home color. In my pre-redhead days, Feria in Diamond Blonde was the best blonde I found – it’s not too bright but not remotely ashy, a natural-looking warm color. (In case you’re curious, when I don’t use henna, my new red-hair standard is Feria Mango. If you want an intense, bright, orange-red, this is for you.) The new standard in at-home color is to include a moisturizing conditioner to use after coloring, and Feria’s is thick, luscious and leaves my hair amazingly soft.
