I started by looking on the internet wig sites for a photo of a wig in which the woman had just about the right angle and face shape to blend the old pic with. I also wanted a wig with straight hair because it looks as if this woman had long, straight hair. If she were living today she probably would have it cut much shorter and bangs are much more flattering to her face than the part in the middle that she wore 150 years ago. With all this in mind I chose a wig photo to use. The rest was just repairing the old photo and blending it with the new hairstyle. I applied digital makeup to replicate the way in which she would probably apply it in modern times. One thing I had to get rid of was the dark lines under her eyes. (Why did all the woman have dark lines/circles under their eyes back then?)I took the liberty of plucking her eyebrows a little, she would have done that herself in 2003. I would have liked to color her but whenever I tried I just messed it up...couldn't get the right skin tones. In the end I tilted the photo for a good portrait angle.

Very impressive manipulation! The wig you chose works perfectly with her face and as a result looks very natural. Great job on the digital make-up as well. I agree with the rest, this has a great girl next door quality. It really looks like an old high school yearbook portrait. Nicely done!

Great job! Your results turned out looking very natural and smooth. Finding an image of a wig is an excellent idea. I will be sure to remember that!
