Post Jemima's New Wig
I feel a need to say something about Jemima's new wig! This is the first good picture that I've seen of it, the rest of the press release pics show Jemima in with the rest of the cast, with blurry lighting and such. Can you agree with me that it looks HORRIBLE? I mean it looks like a messy rat's nest and looks no better than a crappy regional production's wig. All one mousy brown color too. Whoever made this wig should be shot! It dosent even look like it was made of yak hair and the effort to style it wasn't even taken into account. I feel sorry for the actress that has to wear this monstrosity! And with the new Blackpool cast wigs they don't look as polished and as well taken care of. Change Jemima's wig back!

Sadly, all of the wigs had their bolder colours removed for the Palladium. Jemima just suffered the most because once you remove the hard black and purple from her wig, there's nothing left.

At least the unitards are looking better than they were. Apart from Rumple's song pieces. It's really not hard to make the stripes line up at the seam, but they didn't even try.

Yes, John Napier took out the bright colours, especially red, from the wigs of Demeter, Bombalurina and Jemima when he redesigned some of the costumes last year. I guess they wanted to go back to the original design of Jem's wig (like the one that Sarah Brightman wore) but failed miserably.

But yeah, the unitards and most of the other wigs and make-ups look so much better now than the costumes they had for the UK tour and the first Palladium season last year.
