Tofu - Rochelle Goyle - 12th August 2012
I'm really not a wig lady...
So, lots of work done on my wig. I have begun cutting wefts from my teal wig and stitching them into the pink wig. The headband didn't work out so I cut the band off the ears and hot glued the ears to a piece of white leather. This worked out well in the end as I've been able to reposition the ears at a better angle, more like on my Rochelle doll. I cut slots in the wig along one of the main supports and hand stitched the cut edge down. I then slotted the ears through and carefully hotglued the leather section to the inside of my wig. I possibly should have used another kind of glue, but I'm very confident with hotglue, it dries as soon as it cools so I didn't have to worry about accidental transference of the glue to the rest of the wig hair and it gave me good control for application.
I really hate working with long wigs! I worry about the hair getting so tangled just from the general process of turning it inside out and moving it around that the wig will look tortured before I even wear it!
I need to put a whole lot more wefts in and neaten out around the ears and make sure none of the wefts show. I'm loving how it's coming together.
