Zilia – creator of hair sculptures and wigs.

Dear Shaded Viewers,

I met Zilia in probably the oddest way to date. I was trying to obtain a visa to Moscow and bumping into many problems. I finally sorted it out with Visa Express but in the meantime I met Zilia. A year has gone by since then and recently she contacted me and told me that she creates hair sculptures and wigs. Of course I was curious so I invited her to a cafe for a tea and to show me what she does. I especially liked the baloon head ornament.
