I'm currently working on a plushie of Rei Hino (Sailor Mars) for a swap which is ending this week. I'm currently working on the bangs and am looking for advice. Rei's hair is usually very flat and I'm looking for a way to give her hair more texture and dimension without going to far from the original hair. This is what I've created so far but am looking for suggestions/first impressions.

Please let me know what you think ^_^

Looks great so far.  If it were me, I think I would try cutting out more hair shapes and layering it over what you have.  You could just make smaller and smaller shapes of the area you're working and build it up that way.  It wouldn't need to be each hair section.  And I suppose you might have to worry about it getting too heavy..

Best of luck Grin

To all past swap partners....If something I made you fell apart in some way, it would be helpful to me if you PMed me and told me about it.  Sometimes, I try new things, and if they fail, it helps me to know

I'm not much of a plushie-pro, but what if you have the strands of her fringe (or bangs...wherever ur from) longer, and don't attach them when you finish it up, so they can move around a little on the finished plushie...that might add some 'flat' dimension Tongue

how about cutting out another set of the fringe bits then sewing them together, stuff medium firm then sew like quilting lines in swirls for definition. Its hard to explain what i mean so i hope you understand

Thank you for all your suggestions! I've decided to make an extra layer on the bangs and back one of the bangs with an two pieces to add some more declension to the bangs.

These pretty much reiterate what everyone else has suggested, but I figured I would post the tutorials all the same. Visuals can be pretty helpful.
