Pastel Puff Hair
So I wanted to give Confetti another wig to alternate with. I still have quite a lot of blond, pink and lavender alpaca fiber and they were the perfect colours for Confy ^-^
After all the hairs had been glued on the wig, it looked a bit... strange XD
Truth be told, it looked terrible after the cut too. I had 'straightened' the fibers by brushing through them in water and letting them dry and when cut into a long bob with straight bangs, it looked like a horrible attempt at a Lady Gaga (Monster years) wig.
But I recurled it, by rolling strands of hair over a paint brush handle and wetting them. It didn't take long for them to dry out again, and then I had the lovely surfer curls I wanted :3
I'll need to readjust the curls evey once in a while though, since the gentlest of brushing will make it too poofy again.
But it looks cute enough for now ^-^
Gosh I had forgotten how fun (although stressy) making alpaca wigs was. It is quite simple once I get into it, but it always takes so long to actually start making one. And my worflow for making them is so haphazard, I can never really tell what the end result will be until they are finished (hence, never making them as commissions). I just glue the strands everyway that feels right at the moment and I make up my mind whether to have bangs or sideswept halfway through the wig. :P
Still I need to get rid of the rest of my fiber somehow, so I assume my dolls are still going to get more pastel puff wigs in the future ;) Like a long all pink/purple wig for Confetti... Or black/pink for Milki... I really want some nice mint fibers too!
