Hair color match for Fangelica?
« on: October 26, 2017, 01:42:28 PM »
I'd like to reroot my Fangelica to have bangs like her animated self.  Does anyone know what a good color match hair is?  I worry about just trying to match it using the colors on my computer monitor.
I make the dolls Mattel won't.

I managed to get her hairstyle correct by simple combing and rearranging, and using hot water to set it. I think a reroot might make for better coverage in the end, but it's possible to get it about right with the hair she has already.

That's great to hear if I can't find a match!  Do you have any pictures of your final result?

Just from stock pictures, if it's saran it's probably great grape.

I'm pretty sure it's nylon.

as far I know, Mattel doesn't use nylon. It's usually either kanekalon or saran.
