The Nyckelharpa is a lovely, strange beast!

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 Cheesy

Yeah Smiley Unfortunately, the constant dying, blow-drying and insufficient length made it a no-go for donating it to locks of love.
