I have made a hair falls and wigs.  Most of the were out of cyberlox and/or yarn.  Unfortunately, I forgot to take picture of some of them.  These are the only 2 hair pieces I have left.

First one is a full wig made out of a lot of different textures and I am so in love with it.  I am trying to decide if I want to keep it for myself and wear it for Halloween or go head and let it go to someone else who might have more things they can wear it to.

My lovely model is wearing a grand wig in black, orange and white.  This is a wig that I sewed all of the different items to.  This is my first on and is great for those who want full coverage, don't want the pig tail look, have very short or no hair, etc.  One of my drag friends loves this version over the pigtail type falls.

I miss the lime green version I made and may have to try to recreate it.  Imagine Lime green, glow in the dark *green* and black.  What was I thinking letting that one go?  AND without getting pictures, *sigh and pout*.

These on are pretty popular since they are so inexpensive ... and ca be done in soooo many colors and styles.  I make these on a nylon hairband that doesn't lose its strength very fast and I haven't have one break yet.  The fringe is on clear combs and hide them in a wrapping technique.

with fringe  .. I wish my doll had a bigger head, then the fringe wouldn't look so poofy.


Next up ... I am working on my wool dreads and falls.

Thanks for looking...

Depending on the material you use, they are pretty easy to make.  The first version is a bit harder because you have to actually sew everything yo the base.

Do a search on your favorite browser ... that is how  I started and now have my own techniques that I have added in.

Have fun!

I really like how long the fill wig is and how there are straight and curly bits. Good work!
