Wig making- Part 2 Final result


I'm happy with her:-D Even her lip color change wasn't too bad for a change.

Even though I'm really happy with the way this wig came out, it was more work than I anticipated. I watched a human size wig tutorial by a You Tuber named fabulasityisme. Hers was the easiest for me to follow.
From my own experience I learned a few things for next time I try this: 1. use real glue. Hot glue is very unforgiving.
2. use less glue on the wefts and more to apply them to the wig cap.
3. TAKE YOUR TIME:-D I have to remind myself to take my time, it's not a race...it's a process...
4. learn from my mistakes and don't make the same ones next time. *,*

Adventures in making a doll wig-Part1

When I received Fashionista #77, I loved her face, but hated that hair. It reminded me of the cheap .99 Kanekalon you put in your little girls hair over the summer so that she can take swimming lessons without messing up the good braids you're going to put in when school start:-D It was super straight and very stiff.

So BIG CHOP-but look at that beautiful face*,*

beginning of a wig cap

I sacrificed one of my old wigs for this. Good thing I did. Even doll wigs take a lot of hair, time and patience.

very similar body type, smaller waist ,rounder hips-but not "curvy". love that knee articulation*,*

Had to get my dollie fix...Amazon and thrift

If she had been any taller her neck would have been broken.

She does have a small flaw in her blouse, but still worth $7...such a deal *,*

Had to have these boots...

Off with their heads :-D

I needed bodies for The Red Queen's mannequins. 

This was "KIRA'S" twist and turn old school body, I love her head mold so she just got an UPGRADE *,*

She's so pretty, even if her hair is a mess. I'll just leave it up until I get the nerve to do something drastic to fix it.

Custom Pocahontas

I love her old school articulation...knees and elbows but her hips are not jointed so she sits like she's bored:-D

Fun with Spray Paint

I just love these play sets. The YOUTUBER at DOLLWORLD SHOWS does some awesome repaints I don't know them personally, but they give the best advice-Paint before you assemble:-D Mines came out pretty good for my first try, but I was so excited I totally forgot and rushed to put it together. Since it's hard plastic, it breaks very easily if you try to  unsnap the parts...so i didn't want to chance it.
But doing new doll crafts is always fun...thx again*,*
