I have, it crossed my mind last night right before bed.
I don't want it to be too heavy or thick, due to how small I am, I'm only 5 feet tall XD;, so I worry that my head will go looking towards the sky if too heavy.

You also need to sew the pillow to the base of the wig as well for the gathered ponytail.
Ahh okay.
So I should be fine with just the one wig and if needed, some added wefts as well?
