If I saw someone wearing a wig like that it would make my day. Personally I like to find silly hats to wear.

First time visiting your blog and couldn't stop reading your posts. You are amazing, your blog is fabulous, your photos are so full of colour and you make NYC seem like the place to be! Envious, who me? :-)

SilverMoon Dragon said...

I took this theory to extremes and dyed my hair bright purple. Now everything I do and everywhere I go is a little bit more fun. Kids love it!

Same Length Pinkies said...

your wig blends in nicely with the products and aisles.

mnemonique said...

I must try! you are awesome!

Carson Nevada said...

I love how you make every bit of your life enjoyable. its an inspirational way to live. and it brings so much wonderful color into your photography.

Amoniel said...

This is awesome! And you know what I want to do? I want to start wearing fairy wings like I wear t-shirts :D (If that makes ANY sense...)

Poo said...

Hahaha. You're so cute!

megan said...

I often times clean my house in a three foot electric blue beehive wig. It makes chores 100% more fun!

Relsqui said...

I have a mohawk and a collection of silly animal hats (frog, rabbit, ladybug). So this is basically my life. 8)

Natasha Jane said...

My step mom told me that when she was young she used to dye her hair purple. When she went grocery shopping and people would stare at her purple hair she would tell them, "purple haired people have to eat too, you know."

Anonymous said...

wow you look really pretty in that last photo, seriously, no sarcasm intended. i just think people need to be told they're pretty, it makes smiles all around!

♥peachkins♥ said...

I'll try that one of these days...

Belly B said...

Raptor Plateado said...

Nina said...

Liesbeth said...

Charmin Basic! It fits perfect with the wig

Rosina said...

Haaaahaha! Awesome! I usually wear a clown nose in traffic jams and act complitely normal... people tend to forget about their moodines and concentrate on the crazy woman with a red nose in the other car! =)

Anonymous said...

You´re awesome! :D

Eleni said...

Ha ha! I love that you've styled the wig with a bow, like you actually woke up with a rainbow 'fro this morning and wanted to jazz it up a bit!

FeeAMore said...

Simple Summit said...

Love it! There's nothing more fun to do than make other people giggle and laugh - you're awesome! :D

spngejen said...

It's like the time I wore my fake beard from http://www.imadeyouabeard.com like it was normal.

I woke up from a nap on the subway to a guy standing right in front of me taking a photo. :)

I guess I'll have to try the wig/beard combo.

Wendy said...

Awesome!
This is why I let me kids dress themselves! ;) My 3-year old even has a red cape that reads, "I dressed myself today." He wears it everywhere, along with his fedora!
And my oldest son has one of the knitted beards. Love it, and they make people smile wherever they go. I need to join in more often. You are so inspiring, spreading happiness into the dailyness of life!

colormekatie said...

haha I love the cape!

Anonymous said...

Wow, after reading through your blog I was so happy to learn you do it all in Greenpoint. You make it look so colorful, a stark contrast to the drabbiness it usually exhibits (at least whenever I am there). Now that I know your work, I'll be on the look out for it whenever I'm in Little Poland =) I'm kind of sad I haven't run into it yet =(

artistaprilcole@gmail.com said...

Simply amazing! :]
Love it.

Do you work or have any interest in working with NYC public schools? If you're ever inspired to do a project with a group of crazy Kinder-5th kids, let me know =)

Ninjastar said...

Hahah! That is just so cool!

Sandra said...

Hi! I'm going to New York for my first time ever - in April. I'll be living in Brooklyn, and I'll be sure to look for all your artwork! I love what you are doing! Keep it up :)

Kara said...

Haha I wish I had the guts to do something like that. I'd probably be giggling myself!

T.S. said...

This week I started looking up into the trees whenever someone called my name from down the sidewalk. It was great. They'd laugh and after I'd keep looking in the trees they would to. Eventually we'd both meet on the sidewalk and be tree watching together.

winnie said...
