The top right picture is my double knot practice whilst watching the American Idol finale (Janet Jackson got OFF!) Right now, I'm using my existing computer desk as a workstation. The mag lamp clips on perfectly so I don't have to fight it, and the wig head is at the right level. I've sewn the lace onto the nape on the right side; now I'm completing the left. I'll probably start ventilating it either tonight or tomorrow.
Here's a good ventilating video (thanks Nrrrlkl): Amarie Lace Wigs - Ventilating
