So, aside from the funny video, these things look intriguing: Bumpits – for volumised hair. One of the lovely ladies on the Historical Sewing Forum (link on right hand side of this very blog) found them and was wondering whether they could be used for an 18th Century do…
Looking at them, I think you could do a high-ish 18th C do with them, perhaps using the biggest one (which they call a Hollywood, which makes me chuckle) further forward than they place it in the video and then the mini ones could be used at the back or sides to create smaller areas of volume. I’ve found them available in the UK for £4.49 for a pack of 5 (2 normal, 1 ‘Hollywood’ and 2 minis) and free P&P. It’s payday next week, so I’m quite tempted to give them a go as they’re so cheap, plus I’m sure I’d use them for some sort of fancy dress, anyway. I’m not sure why you’d want 2 of the normal size ones… Although I have just had the vague idea that you could perhaps use 2 at a time to create a wider style, which could work for 18th C?
I’d love to hear from anyone who has tried these – do you think they could work for the Marie Antoinette or more a more Georgiana Duchess of Devonshire hedgehog do? Thanks!
