I'm looking for advice on how to add a fluffy mane to a doll. I was commissioned to crochet a small Growlithe plush--for those of you who aren't pokemon fans, this is Growlithe:

and I want to make him look something kind of like this:

I figure an actual fluffy mane would look a lot better than a lumpy crocheted one. However, I don't really know what material would be good for this task, any advice?

Erm, I'm not much of a crocheter but you could just use a reallly soft yarn, loop the hair on where you want it and brush it out so its fluffy, otherwise you could always use fake fur, the stuff is pretty cheap and you could sew it on pretty easily >.>

The material in the example picture is just a fluffy yarn that was sort of combed out a bit. If you're crocheting, you can just loop some yarn in, if you're sewing, maybe you can sew it into the seam.
