As cool as this is, I always think this.... Why doesn't japan have people just wear wigs for different colored haired people when acting? Is a wig really that hard to get/ put on to make it feel a little more like the original characters in a tv show drama or a movie? Ha.

When you think about it it seems like common sense to at least do that if the character they are acting as has blonde, brown or some other type of different natural hair color. I could understand not doing pink, purple, blue or some other unnatural hair color. So, what does everyone think? Do you know why at all or just any thoughts on the matter?

Why wear a wig when they can simply dye their hair?

Why dye your hair when you can scalp someone with the proper hair color?

Well. What I suggested is legal and what you are proposing is criminal.

Yes, true they do but that leaves all the more reason why not a wig?

To be fair, they do actually take real hair from people to make wigs usually. Ha. But yeah, I thought about why not dye it and it leads to the conclusion that its more work to change your hair color for real to something they don't want. That's why I though, why not a wig then?

But all of them? I mean, they all never thought to add that detail to the movie at all? It just seems odd that not alot if any at all have decided to do that.

Dang, that sucks. Directors and executive producers sure are picky I guess. Wonder why they can't be picky about these hair details. Well, I'll chalk it up to something like, because they said so and nothing can be done about it calls. It really does suck but maybe one day one of them will finally notice that it actually makes a difference to add that detail in.
