So I decided to try some wig making…again. This time I wanted to use real hair, not wool. Since my last try was okay, but not practicable at all. Since then my last try is already in the bin – yes I did that – and my Griselda is wearing now a company wig in white.
BUT – I still need hair for some of my dolls and I still want to learn how I can make some myself. Here are my two victims this time:
Iplehouse JID Soa – alias Marie + Dollzone Big Brother – Flora
I made the caps like the last time. I used some stretchy fabric, rubber bands and white glue. I made two layers of glue, so that the fabric is stiff, but still fits the head.
I already made a scetch of the wig I want a while ago. I also had a old mohiar wig around, which fitted nobody. I decided to cut the hair from the scalp and made some wefts with them.
She will get the hair around the lower part of the cap. The top part will be fabric flowers and leafes, since she is the spirit of flora. I thought that fitted, also I didn’t got enough wefts from the wig.
What I still need to do with this wig:
- I have to buy fabric flowers and leaves to glue on the bald spot on Floras head
- Cut and style the wig
- make the two braids
- maybe some flowery accessories…
I will craft the wig in the same style… I ordered some alpaca fibers in black, but they are still on their way… So this I will do next time
