* HEDWIGnites guests: You are invited to wear your own unique 'HeadWig' to the party! Our team will select for fun and innovative 'HeadWig' designs! Let your creative juices flow, your freak flag fly – design your headgear and let us make a category for it!!
"What's A 'HeadWig'?" - - "Do I Need to Wear a 'HeadWig'?"
A 'HeadWig' is anything that goes on your head. It can be as simple as your favorite sports team cap, a mask, or a headpiece as ornate, original and creative as you can conceive. A 'HeadWig' can be found, made, adapted or. . . . . . .? You needn't feel compelled to create or wear a 'HeadWig.' However, it could be fun ;-)
Please send us your 'HeadWig' photo to: Contact@HedwigDances.com We'd love to post it on our social media channels and our website.
