This wig was worn by Dick Emery as part of the costume for his character "Mandy" in The Dick Emery Show, Australian Tour, early 1980s.

Physical description

Long blonde flick-end wig worn by Dick Emery as 'Mandy' in The Dick Emery Show. The wig is made from dyed blonde human hair hooked into a caul mesh cap, with a turned-under stage lace front. A harder mesh around the circumference of the head kept the wig's shape. A comb stitched into the front of the wig and cross-springs stitched into the sides of the cap kept the wig in place on the head.
