Changing wigs to change characters

Question: I'm thinking I could use the same figure for different characters if the wigs were easy to remove. I could either change the clothes between sets or have another body. What do you think?

Answer: It's very difficult to make a male wig that can satisfactorily be taken on and off. So I suggest the male wig be installed permanently and then covered with a removable female wig if you want to change the characters in the manner you suggest. This procedure is more practical and acceptable if you do not work with the same audience frequently. Those who learn to know your characters are more likely to see the male figure as appearing in "drag" when used as a female.
