Dwarf beard and elf wig - A hairy affair!
The dwarf beard is the most characteristic feature of a dwarf besides the body size. Even some dwarf women have a little fuzz or even whole beards. Dwarf beards are often elaborately braided and decorated with magnificent jewellery. A dwarf is particularly proud of his beard and cutting it off will cause his anger. Simply put: a dwarf without a beard is not a dwarf. This rule also applies to Larp. But to grow a real dwarf beard, it normally takes ages. And not everyone wants to walk around with a beard like a hillbilly or a member of a biker gang all the time. This is where our theatre beards come into play. Our high-quality human hair beards can be used easily with a special skin glue, which is enclosed. Simply aply the glue and stick the beard on and the player will be transform into a dwarf.
Of course, dwarves are not the only fantastic Larp characters who stand out for their special hair. Elves, for example, typically have long, very straight and fine hair. Here you are best served with a longhair wig made of real hair. We also have white wigs for dark elves like Drow.
Pirate Beard and Baroque Wig - Allonge wig and Blackbeard
The time of the baroque was an epoch, in which the wig experienced a "fashionable" high point. Wigs have been worn since ancient times, as in Egypt, ancient Rome or Greece, but their present name comes from the Baroque period. The typical baroque wig is the so-called allonge wig. This men's wig was mostly white and lavishly curled. It became the symbol of the nobility, by an unfortunate circumstance. When the Sun King Louis XIV became infected with syphilis and his hair fell out as a result of treatment with mercury, the wig became a new fashion trend at court. Powdered wigs were still fashionable until the French Revolution. With the change of the class system the differentiation of the classes by wigs was also omitted.
The Baroque was also the golden age of piracy and a Captain Hook with its black mane is therefore not so far-fetched. There was even a particularly cruel pirate named Edward Teach, whose beard must have been so characteristic that he was given the "nickname" Blackbeard. With us you can revive the time of the baroque and the buccaneers with a real baroque wig or a wild pirate beard.
Medieval wigs and hairpieces made of human hair
Many women in the Middle Ages had long hair. Noble women definitely. Elaborately braided hairstyles are very typical for the Middle Ages and at least in the 14th century a noble woman never went outside with unbraided hair covered with veils. Even simple peasant women rarely wore their hair open and mostly covered it, because it was seen as a sign of vice to present oneself "openly". Of course, 1000 years of the Middle Ages are a long time and hairstyles have changed extremely in men and women. The beard was also subject to many fashionable and partly also religious and cultural changes throughout the Middle Ages.
If one is not blessed with long hair or a full beard to do one's own hair, but wants to represent a character from a certain epoch of the Middle Ages, one can use our beards and wigs made of real hair. Used correctly, they can be styled in any shape and round off the medieval appearance perfectly.
