Okay, this was a joint project between my boyfriend and I but he's not on Craftster so I have to post on his behalf as well.

This was one of the most mammoth, complicated, annoying, crazy things I've ever had to make. And I've made a few strange things. I'll spare you the trials and tribulations and just give you the pretty pictures of the finished products. I learned SO MUCH during the process of of making these....so many mistakes! We were just about in tears sometimes, but I think, in the end, they look great. Phew!

I almost forgot to explain that we made these for a hair show. The hair/wigs was done by a hairdresser. We made the heads. The wigs are AMAZING. There were 6 heads made in total, each had it's own style.

Those are fantastic - REALLY! I can't even begin to understand how you could have made them.  Kudos to the models for not falling down.  Are the eye holes in the nose?  Not a lot of visibility! The whole concept works so well together - heads, hair, and clothes. It all totally rocks. Would have love to have seen it.  Is there a video posted anywhere on the web??

Thanks guys! Maybe I should try a catchier subject heading to make more people look? They are made from fibreglass. They are quite light, they have a stem at the back of the neck that leads down to the waist where there is a back brace so all the weight is on their hips. The wigs are heavier than the heads, especially the geisha style one. They used dancers instead of models cause they thought they might have more strength and balance. If anyone wants to know the process I can go into more detail for them.
