I tried the kimono on again and right now I am sewing some fishnet stockings super tight over the hair pieces to keep them from frizzing up.
I am trying to work with what I have.. so what you see is a zip tie getting wrapped up in black pipecleaner.. lots of them to make it thicker. I then glued wefts and wrapped them all around. As you can see, it is very frizzy. I tried using fray block and hair spray but both just get white, flakey, and gross.
So I was thinking about hair and realized.. hair nets? why not? well I don’t want to spend a lot of money on hair nets so I went to the cheapy 99 cent store and got a pair of fishnet stockings. Not just anykind - you need the kind where the diamonds/netting is very small and thin… I then cut a piece of it off and cut a one inch thick strip. I am right now pulling it together very tightly so that you can see the strands of hair shining through. I don’t know if I’ll be able to get a good picture of that though to explain it. Just imagine a hair net.
You can see the necklace a little here. I think it came out great :) I also took this shot to show that the sleeves are fully lined. I didn’t want any red peeking through - I want it just like in the picture where you can’t see anything but her arms coming out of white fabric.
Not bad, right? :) After I sew tear drop beads onto the hair piece, I will see if I have enough left for the garter.
