Looking for feedback from any BPTC grads out there. What did you do for a wig & gown? This particularly applies to those who were not sitting on offers of pupillage. How many took a leap of faith and bought a wig in the hope they would land a pupillage?
I'm inclined to buy one even though I may not get pupillage - not out of some gesture of demonstrating to myself that I have faith in my chances (although I guess that could be a factor) but also just so that I have some physical keepsake from the experience of passing the BPTC and being called. Some may say that's a bit of an expensive souvenir.
Secondly, for those that have (for whatever reason) acquired wigs: Where did you get them from? Are Ede & Ravenscroft worth the extra compared to some online suppliers? Any success on the secondhand market? Does anyone know if they can be adjusted if the size isn't exactly right?

If you just want a souvenir then you get a certificate on call night.
