BJD Wig Tutorial

I am very bad a wig making.  I tried my hand at it last year and failed miserably. (Much fun fur was lost in this quest!)  Needless to say, I’ve retired from wig making! (And the fun fur rejoiced!)  My mom, however, found a really great tutorial for making a yarn wig on Flickr the other day.  With nothing better to do, she decided to try it out and the results were fantastic! This TARDIS blue wig is being modeled on a MSD Bobobie Pixie.

The tutorial was put together by Flickr user ghilie01.  It’s a photo album tutorial (ie: click the image and the instructions are on the right for that step).  If you are handy with a crochet hook and latch hook, this should be a pretty easy tutorial to follow!  For the wig pictured above, we followed all the steps, but one. As we don’t have a sewing machine, we didn’t ‘stitch’ a part into this wig.  For a first attempt, I think this turned out pretty awesome!  Awesome enough for me to want to share this with you, readers!

So next time you’re bored, why not try making your ball jointed doll a new wig? And then stop by and share the experience down below in the comment area!

    I’ve been considering buying a 27cm Obitsu doll from the Junky Spot and assembling her myself. Do you know anywhere else that sells wigs in that size? I really don’t like the wigs there, and I don’t really think I’m crafty enough to make one (but if I could get my mom to help, maybe), but I’d much rather purchase it for my first BJD. And also, if you know anything about face-ups and installing eyes for that size, could you help me?
    Thanks, and sorry for all the questiosn, but this is the first time I’ve ever sereroiusly considered buying a BJD. (And sorry for the spelling)!

    Pretty good for a first attempt I think. Certainly beats rerooting Barbies anyway 🙂

    That wig looks adorable! And you don’t know if you’re bad at wig making! You only tried once.(Seriously.If your faceups are that adorable,you should NOT have any trouble.)
