Can You Wig It, Sucka?

Over the years, I've met a bunch of interesting people.  Sarah Pacitti is certainly one of those.  I first met her at a friend's graduation/birthday combo party (miss those days), and the first thing she said to me was "That's a lovely painting your Mom made for Andrew", before I had even gotten her name.  I was kinda creeped out by that, but at least I knew she was quirky and interesting.  Since then, I've learned that she is not bashful about asking for the pink colored starbursts if you have a bag of them on a bus trip to New York City, and she can do a pretty impressive Marcel The Shell impersonation.  She's easily one of the quirkiest and funniest people I know, and probably has the best chance of becoming famous out of anyone I currently know. 

Fast forward to today, I have a blog and she is making a series of videos on wearing one wig in twenty different ways.  She has entitled this series 1 Wig 20 Ways, which strangely makes sense.  This is the kind of stuff that should go viral.  You can keep your double rainbows, Charlie bit me's and cats playing keyboards, I'll take 1 Wig 20 Ways 24/7. I listened to Sarah's college radio show when she was in San Diego, and she gave this blog a shout out one time, so I was more than willing to return the favor and give her a shoutout regarding her wigs and her ways.  Therefore, check out her newest video, and then check out an in-depth interview with Sarah that I would like to call 1 Wig 20 Ways  20 Questions.  Enjoy it, and spread the word. 







1. Who is your favorite wigged person? 

My favorite wigged person would definitely have to be any old timey judge. I actually just asked Yahoo Answers why judges used to wear such elaborate wigs.  Duckyshe responded “to keep them warm,” while Terry T said “to make them look wise.” Who really knows, I guess we could spend hours splitting hairs over that one.

2. What was your inspiration for these wig videos?


When I was younger, I spent a lot of time making costumes for games I played with my sister, cousins and neighborhood friends. I usually focused more on putting together what I thought was a good character outfit rather than the game itself. It mattered a lot to me. In 5th grade, for a talent show, I wrote a sketch based on the hot show from our youth, Who Wants to Be a Millionaire and I cast my friend Jackie as Regis. But I wanted it to look authentic, you know? Or at least as authentic as an elementary school girl playing the part of Regis Philbin can get. So I got a wig. I later used that same wig for my Judge Judy Halloween costume. I guess I’ve always been into wig culture.


The Face of the Justice.

3.Does it creep you out how many wig-related videos exist on youtube?  some of them seem pretty serious. 


It certainly does. As soon as I posted “1 Wig 20 Ways,” I started going through many wig-related videos. Since then,I gotta say, I’ve learned a lot about wigs. I used to just think you put a wig on the same way you put on a hat. Isn’t it just a hat covered in hair? How wrong I was. Wig fitting is a true art.

4. Any tips for anyone reading this on how they can successfully pull off wearing a wig? 


Make sure none of your own hair shows. You lose the wig magic that way. Maybe watch one of the hundreds of serious wig-fitting videos that are out there. Live as though it is your hair.

5.Can you easily tell if someone is wearing a wig in public?


Hard to say. Perhaps if someone is scratching his or head a great deal. They could just have an itchy head or be thinking extra hard, though. I like to assume everyone is always wearing a wig.

6.Are you worried you may become the next big youtube sensation, like Justin Bieber or Rebecca Black?


I’m not wigging out over it, no.

7.Is there any way for us to tell if the fame starts going to your head when these videos go viral? 


If my wig looks a lot bigger, then you’ll know I’ve gotten a big head.

8.Are you hoping to one day get sponsored by a wig company, similar to Team Pup n Suds in the hit Disney channel movie 'Brink'?


That would be great, but I fear for the future of wig companies ever since Tyra Banks slapped 10 different ones with a fat lawsuit back in October! I know Jim, I was shocked, too.

9. Why only 20 ways?


I thought 10 was just not enough and 30 seemed outrageous, so I went with 20. I only know how to count by tens, so…

10. Ever see the movie 'Psycho'?  They used a wig in that.


My personal favorite wig.
Yes! That wig alone was scarier than the rest of the movie. A lot of really great flicks have wigs in them, though. Mrs. DoubtfirePulp FictionE.T. The Extra-Terrestrial.The list goes on and on.

11. Will hipsters start wearing wigs, or are you squashing this opportunity for them by making them 'mainstream' with your videos?


I think I am only encouraging hipsters to find even more creative ways to use wigs without having to wear them on their heads.  For instance, they can start wearing them as ascots or scarves, using them as decorative pillows, or even just putting them on top of household appliances to give them more character. If anything, I like to think I’m just challenging them to become even more innovative.

12. Is there one type of wig that you absolutely need to get your hands on and make a video with?  You know, like a Holy Grail of wigs.  


I was Jerry Seinfeld for Halloween this year. I wore white sneakers, jeans and a light blue button-up. I thought it was perfect. The perfect generic outfit. In my mind, it was the best costume.  Then came time to find a wig. It was difficult. I ended up buying a mullet and cutting it into what I thought would do the job. It did not. Someone asked me if I was a “brunette Ellen DeGeneres.” Even when I played the theme song to Seinfeld as a hint, someone asked me, “Are you someone from Seinfeld?” It was a flop. I would love a Jerry Seinfeld wig.I think a Jerry Seinfeld wig is essentially just a generic man's hair style from the 90's? Even though it seems generic, it's impossible to find. That would be the Holy Grail.

13. What the hell is going on with the Boston Celtics this year?  Not looking good. 


Not good at all, Jim. Wonder how things would look for them if they were to ever get Andrew Wiggins.  (Editors Note: Well played, Sarah.  Well played.)
Can't spell Wiggins without wig

14. Where do you hope these videos lead you to?  Riches?  Fame?  A sugar daddy?


I like doing videos because it helps me workshop different characters. I invent them and then find the ones that I think work. So far, I’ve written a sketch about “Guy that uses holiday parties as a soap box.” I named him Kenneth.  Eventually, I want to be a bigwig (of wigs.)

15. Do you think it is sexist that you have not used any toupee's yet? 


No, here’s why. Funny enough, I often complain that my own bangs look a whole lot like a toupee when they are blown in the wind. They spike right up and I constantly have to push them down before I enter buildings. Since it’s been pretty windy lately, that happens all too frequently. As far as sexist goes, I play a lot of male characters, so I think I’m safe. Plus, toupees involve glue, and that seems too messy.

16. What wig would work best for me?  Be honest. 


I think you have a lot of potential options, but you have to let the wig find you. Try a blonde mullet, and a jet black bowl cut to start.

17. Do your friends and family worry that you'll give them a wig for every birthday and/or Christmas? 


Why…do you think… do you think they actually don’t like the gifts I’ve given them the last few years? Do you think that 1985 Cyndi Lauper inspired wig for my mom was too much?
Wigs, they wanna have fun.

18. How sure can we be that your hair is actually real? 


Just think of it as the wig I was born in.

19.Have you talked to Kristen Wiig about doing a collaboration video?


I see what you did there. I would get too starstruck, though.

20.Finish the sentence: “A world without wigs is...


...a head without hair, probably a little colder.”
