The Parade of the Dragon in Paris' Chinatown in the 13eme arrondissement was super-crowded, but fun nonetheless. Parade groups banged drums, crashed tambourines, and set off long strings of firecrackers that hung from trees that lined the parade route on Avenue de Choisy, making for a loud procession.

I love these photos, especially the second and fifth one. The New Year's parade in NYC's Chinatown was super packed as well. I'm astounded you were able to get such intimate shots with such a huge crowd! All my photos had unwanted heads and hands in them.

Drying a wig: When you cheap wigs wash your wig, allow the wig to dry in an open area until slightly damp before blow-drying. When you blow-dry the wig, keep in mind that the hot tools and chemicals are on the same hair every time, as opposed to your natural hair which grows and reinvents over time. Use less heat and move the blowdryer around to distribute party wigs the heat evenly, so that you doní»t burn or dry out the hair. Natural hair has a silky texture, and both hair and silk tend to crunch up when overheated or burned. We recommend that you have your wig blow-dried by a professional stylist to ensure that your wig stays in good condition.
