Tinsel
« on: March 05, 2018, 09:24:26 PM »
I loathe doll hair tinsel and removing it. It breaks off and gets frizzy roots. The only one I like Nefera Boo York and the gold tinsel feels different I am hoping it won’t change and look mangled.

I completely agree.  Any time I get a doll with tinsel in its hair I remove it.  I don't like the texture and I don't like how it looks. :yucky:

I can only do one every once in awhile so tedious, but plan to remove it all, except Neferaís Boo York doll.

I generally don't like tinsel, but I've found it to be a hassle to remove it cleanly wiithout pulling glue out out of the head or breaking it just before the scalp.

I mostly am a fan of tinsel straight out of the box. The only one I am not too crazy about is the kind original Cleo had. It's like there is some kind of weird elastic string that likes to separate and it just looks weird.
Still seeking Indigo Astranova doll and Chase Twyla Vinyl!!!

Maybe this should go in the Unusual Doll Opinions thread, but I actually don't mind tinsel, I kinda like it... >.>

It does go kinda crazy but it's just so pretty and -sparkly!- I usually just pull out the craziest pieces and leave the rest of it alone.

I really do like that special tinsel they gave Nefera, and I believe Cleo's had it a time or two, too.
Also Esbayne on the MLP Arena, PonyIsland, and pretty much everywhere else.

I think itís because I have a lot of second hand dolls, so the tinsel is not crisp or in good shape.

Yeah tinsel is one of those things, like pale flocking, that does not survive play well.
