Costume Wig: Rick James

If you want to have a costume wig inspiration then place Rick James on your list. Who is Rick James anyway? He is dead but he left a mark on the world by being an American singer, songwriter, musician and record producer.

Aside from that, James was a popular R&B and funk singer in the late 1970s and 1980s. Strongly associated with the songs “Super Freak” and “You and I”, another unique feature of this man was his wild lifestyle that was manifested on his hairstyle. By the way, his real name is James Ambrose Johnson, Jr. and his nickname was Big Jimmy.

Though he had an ode to marijuana, you can get inspired by him but not his personality. You can imitate him but never ever do what he did outside the music world like drug usage, sexual acts and kidnapping. What do you think of this wig idea?
