Thanks kindly! I'm wearing a pair of my dreadfalls.

Has anyone had any luck making their own dreads besides me?

Sorry offtopic.. but omg carpejugulum you look amazing!  Cheesy

If you're looking at my user photo, thanks! If you're looking at the head with the falls on, that's Angela, the girl I did the pieces for, not me.  Wink

Here are some other hairpieces I have done recently. Some of them are not made of synthetic hair, but the method of wearing them is the same!

Those are some natural colored double-ended dreads that ended up in a pair of falls for a customer.


These falls are made with several kinds of plastic rexlace, plastic grid mesh, EVA foam strips, vinyl tubing in two colors, and are mounted on strips of old black teeshirt. My customer had thin hair in a growing-out undercut, so she needed a pair of lightweight falls. So we used plastic rather than synthetic hair! It takes a lot of the massive weight off of the head.

So, my point is...you can use all kinds of things in your falls to make them super fancy, even if you don't know how to make dreads.

Here's another shirt I did recently using the Soft Scrub method. This is a Cure shirt for Nicole of http://www.boundinstripes.net :

The lyric says: "my eyes are bursting hearts in a bloodstained sky". Nicole took the picture of herself. What do you guys think? I like the way it turned out.

Ohmigod, I am so making one of those from black stretch velvet! What a brilliant idea!

You could make one for X-Mas with a red body, green tentacles, a wee Santa hat, and bells on each toe! awww.

Hey, kiddo.  Wink

I love this idea! If my freezer was less ghetto, I would surely do this. Beautiful for a party.

I suppose a little food coloring couldn't hurt either. Everything's better in blue.  yayay!

carpejugulum, I love your rasputina tank top!  I never knew you could use soft scrub.

Thanks so much! It's really easy and fairly foolproof as crafts go.

I'll second the motion on the shirt. Whenever the crotches of my numerous pairs of fishnets go to hell, I tear them a little bigger and make fun sleeves to wear under boring teeshirts.

You can also snip them up if they are of a stable material and use them as fun insets in a de/reconstructed shirt. As in, take a tank top that's too small, slit the seams down the sides, and use parts of your tights to widen the top. sexxxay.

I make fingerless fawcy gloves with the toes of my beat-up tights too. Just trim them to a proper glove length, place them on your hands, and snip holes in the toe where your fingers would pop out. mm.

Here is a scan of my Rasputina tank top (a poor scan at that), rendered in the same fashion as the patch for my coat (sorry, no shot of that thing).

This is just a cheap muscle tank I got at Target, which gave me an excuse to run about in the men's undies section. heehee.

When you bleach black fabric with Soft Scrub, the area bleached often turns pink or salmon orange due to the fibers and the red undertones in the dye. I've also done this to a red teeshirt and the letters turned white. I guess it's the dye content.

The headband is a fantastic idea!  I didn't even think of it.  And that pic of the wig is WILD.  Although it did remind me that i have a vintage hat with a net like that, and i could also attatch some hair to that for a weird retro meets gothic space alien look.  IM so excited!

I like the headband idea because it's so quick and all you have to do is shove it on and go. Putting in my red/brown falls can take twenty minutes sometimes because I have a lot of natural hair and I require many pins.

I would refrain from putting hair on a vintage hat. You might ruin it! and that would be so sad. Just sew dreads onto a headband or a scarf (or a tinsel wig) and wear them underneath. :-)
