Someone asked me if I would shave their mohawk off for them. I asked if I could keep the hair afterward, and they said, "Sure.....?" The end result, a little death-metal loving plastic person with genuine multicolored HUMAN hair! Huzahh!
This is what the little fellow looked like at the beginning.
To start the process, I drilled holes in his head for the hair!
Then, I cut a slit in the back of his head so I could reach in to pull the hair through (when I couldn't get the right angle through the other holes). I added holes on either side of the slit so that I could stitch it back together later.
I fashioned a hook out of a paper clip and used it to pull the tufts of hair through the holes.
Next, I used some left over scraps from armor projects to make a shirt and my wife made some tiny red pants for him!
Finally, I used some yarn to stitch the slit shut on the back of his head.
I was pretty happy with his head-banging abilities. I posted a video on my blog of the creepy little guy rocking out
