The French monarchy had long suffered from a hereditary condition of embarrassing male pattern baldness, and so, tired of being mocked by the King of England, Louis wore a badass wig to show that he was the most virile king around. Before long, his unconventional style became a fashion statement in the royal court, with most of the king’s men adopting the elaborate hairpieces, whether they were bald or not.
With France being the center of European culture in the 17th century, anything that was sexy in France quickly spread to the rest of Europe. As aristocrats tried to outdo one another, the wigs, called perukes or periwigs, became more and more fabulous. This led to the creation of a whole industry of wig-makers, who established their own guild in 1665. The wigs became such a part of the culture that you had to wear a wig to move upward in society. By the late 1700s, men were pouring a starch-based powder over their wigs to make them as white as possible.
The wig craze died in England when the government sensed a money-making opportunity and imposed a hefty tax on hair powder. At the same time, a minor incident in France called the French Revolution made it kind of uncool to be seen in public wearing a symbol of the aristocracy. But until then, the peruke phenomenon had been one of the most long-standing and weirdest fashion crazes in European history. All because the King of France was self-conscious about his bald spot.

dr3 saionji: as far as structuring goes, you can check the chisa post on making a jumbo pigtail or this tutorial- if you want it to be fang shaped, try cross referencing this tutorial and using screws/hot glue/tons of clips to attach it to a stubbed wig/ponytail wig? as far as actual wigs go, a jeannie from arda in titanium blonde or fairy blonde would work pretty well. i think this wig and this wig (in buttercream blonde) would work well too!
