Have you heard? There’s a grand ball at Versailles and everyone is invited!


Custom wigs for fancy dress, fetes galantes

If you’re heading to the Hall of Mirrors for the Fetes Galantes or the Grand Masked Ball, or any of the other Fancy Dress events at Versailles, a custom made historical wig is just the thing to finish off your attire! 

Here’s what you need to know to order your custom Fetes Galantes wig or 18th century wig for other Fancy Dress events.

1- Order early! It’s best to place your order at least six months before your event, but one year out is not too early to plan your wig and reserve your spot. Spaces are limited, so the sooner you order, the sooner you can relax and know your wig will be ready for the party.

2- We can ship your wig in the continental US or to an international location. If you’re travelling with your wig, here’s some tips for Travelling with Wigs and Costumes.

3 – The sky is the limit for your custom fancy dress wig! Do you want an iconic towering wig complete with birdcage or ship? We can build it. Prefer something a bit more understated? Very historically accurate? More whimsical? No problem. If you have an idea or design in mind, we’ll build that for you, every detail will be just what you want. If you don’t know what you want, we can design something just for you. 

4 – Your Fetes Galantes wig can be restyled for other events or occasions! While you might enjoy having a new wig made each year, we can ensure you get many delightful styles from your wig. And we offer Cleaning and Maintenance Service for after the party, too!

Every single piece we create is a full custom wig, built to fit you, and in the color, texture and style you want. Your wig is hand tailored to fit your head, including accommodating your own hair.  You’ll choose either a fine lace front that matches your hairline and skin tone or a period correct hard front. A lace front is best for those who wish for their wig to look very natural, while the hard front is ideal for those who wish to wear a period-appropriate overt wig.

We can also create ornaments, decorations and baubles for your wig.
