Is there a styling gel I could use on Billy? I’m thinking I might need to deal with the back of his hair that way. (I cut off a lot of his hair today. There is still a lot to work with, but the haircut will need some tweaking.)
Thanks, Pam. I’d already found Ellie’s doll workshop and looked at Monique wigs, but I hadn’t found the measuring guide so that’s really helpful. I’ve been dithering about which wig to choose, but I think I’ve decided. Not sure about the colour, but it’s reassuring that you have to order by phone so I expect someone will be able to help me.
I’ll keep you posted on progress. Good to know that you’ve done it! That give me courage….
Hi Ginny, I have rewigged a few dolls. I always use Monique’s wigs which I get from Ellie’s Doll Workshop in the UK which is here. You have to phone up to order but they are super helpful. I first choose the wigs from Monique.com and Ellie’s orders them each month. Monique has a measuring guide here.
I hope that helps. I used Tacky glue which I buy from Amazon.
I can’t bear Molly’s reproachful little face any more – I must do something about her wig! (You might remember that her original wig came off in the heat of summer – and it’s horribly frizzled.)
If any of you have re-wigged a doll, could you tell please tell me where you measure – is it the diameter of the doll’s head ( like measuring for a hat) or do you measure round the outside edge of the wig?
