BJD Wig Tutorial PART ONE by BeanSproutMomo BJD Wig Tutorial PART ONE by BeanSproutMomo
WIG TUTORIAL PART ONE is finished!
I'll try to get part TWO done by early next week. ♥
Part 2 is much more complicated/long winded than part 1.

Hope this is helpful for people looking to create a wig with wool locks, or anything similar.

Here is the link to part 2: LINK

Thank you for posting this tutorial, it encourages me to try again with some hair ad locks I wanted to try out.  I didn't want to mess up a borrowed sewing machine while wefting hair!

Yes! You can absolutely use those!
Parabox also has a good tutorial on their site for making wigs using the wefted hair and wig caps. :D

did you let each layer dry before moving on to the next one?

I let it dry a bit before moving on, yes. Just depends on how fast your glue dries.
You can let each layer dry to make sure it's completely set, and doesn't shift around. Up to you~

Thanks you very much for this tutorial !
I just have a question, if it's not a bother, the liquid latex you used for the headcap, it is the one used generally in makeup ?

You are very welcome!

Sure, you can ask me anything ^_^

Nope, the liquid latex I used is this one:

Mold Builder liquid latex. I get mine from Hobby lobby or michaels, and it's about $15 for a huge jar, and it lasts a long time. :D

Thank you so much for putting this together - I realized that I brought my BJD with me, but forgot a wig for her, and was trying to figure out how to make one without going quite insane :3

Thank you! This is very helpful :3 Question, though; I have tall dolls and would like some to have long hair. Is there a place to get long fibers?

You're most welcome!
Glad to be of help~

Hmmm, longer locks huh?
I used Cotswold locks for this wig, but TEESWATER locks are longer.
Search for them on Etsy, or maybe even ebay (not sure about there), and you can find all kinds of already dyed Teeswater locks.
They are a bit more expensive, but worth it for the nice colors and length.
Teeswater locks are generally 9-12", where as Cotswold locks are about 5-7".
