dread wig for ball jointed dolls?

Post by fishyadienlee » Fri Oct 21, 2011 9:52 pm

sorry if this is off topic but i figured you guys/gals might be able to help me =]

i have a ball jointed doll that i would like to give a dreadwig but im a little unsure on how to go about doing it. :?

for those that dont know what a ball jointed doll is, they are dolls made of resin that are jointed at all the main places a human would be. they come in all different sizes and mine is 60cm/2ft tall :i2:

they come hairless/bald and you buy/make wigs for them, i wanted to give mine a dreadwig but that scale of it is giving me some issues :i7:

a normal comb isnt giving me the tight backcombing that i need so what could i use?

heres a picture of a ball jointed doll wig [this one is for a much smaller size doll though]

You could try using a nit comb. It's a VERY fine toothed comb used for removing head lice. Gross I know but might work:)

Does it have to be synth? I make them in roving wool and get great results- I have shown some off in here
viewtopic.php?f=105&t=134&hilit=doll+wigs

Many more on my website http://doll.littlepinkfaery.co.uk
if you want to have a look.

Whilst I know it is totally possible to make synth dreads ( generally not much backcombing or palm roll then for a natural style) roving means you can make for any size doll, even puki size!

ill pick up that comb soon and test it out =] ive got some left over kk to play with =]



=O your work is amazing! your lil dolly falls are freaking adorable!

i don't know why i didn't think of roving dreads! XP

do you just sew them to the wig cap?


thank you again! soon my Spencer will be a total kick ass cyber boy! :i2:

p.s. once i finish what ever i do for him would i be able to put it in the show off section? or would it be off topic since its not for a human? >_<
