I have rerouted some non MH dolls.  And I sew a bit and tinker witb mintires. Witb some non MH air EAH I have rebodied. I like the mh the way
So not really any customs. But I am in aww of people who do.

Lagoon was the first MH I bought. It was an impulse. My folavoreut
Has to be Nefera and Toreli. I don't watch the movies or read the books so my favourites are strictly based on their looks.

Really I am more of a EAH fan then MH. But my daughter likes
MH better

I've only watched the little episodes they have on YouTube sooo cute lol. And I follow some YouTubers who do a lot of the repainted/custom and I am pretty  artistic person so definitly want to try , I have so many ideas of others after my first ..... also Pinterest has cool custom picture I love to gaze at.

Welcome.
There are some amazing mh customs. Do you specific plans for a custom or still working out the details. Age had nothing to do with doll collecting as it is what makes you happy.

So who is your favourite character?
I pretty much know what I want to do for the custom doll , right now I am making her wig which has been a process lol but now I've decided to do a test repaint on a doll I recently got from a thrift store to see if the sealant I have is any good.
Do you do customs?
I love so many , they are such wonderful characters I would have to say lagoona blue and skelita . How about you?

Granted I never successfully COMPLETED a yarn wig, but in my attempts, it didn't matter how long a length you start out with, the end result was about the same length as the picture SaelaVe posted (provided you start with at least that much, obviously).
yea no matter what i try it just stays the same length, but i do like how the hair looks i've done a few wefts and attached it to the wig cap and it looks gorgeous .

With the help of my boyfriend we kinda figured out how to make the strands a little bit longer, but not by much.

but there is a video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Q74jg6hn_OI&t=357s she successfully makes longer strands , and a bunch of people comment asking how and she just said what everyone else says , oh well maybe one day i will figure it out lol at least i made a few wig caps for my first custom so if i do figure it out i have extra lol

In the tutorial link I shared, it does mention how there's a LOT of fibers brushed out, and that no matter how long of yarn you start with, you end up with not a long wig due to the limits of the yarn fibers.

To be green, those leftover fibers can be used for dollie pillow or plush animal or cloth doll stuffing.

oh yea i definitely need to find some way to use, for the few wefts i already made there is sooo much excess lol

thank you for the responses
What kind of fiber are you using?

yes I've been using yarn that's 100% acrylic .

To answer your question = 12cm. :)

Mozekyto Has a FANTASTIC Video that a lot of YouTubers use and I used this as well. The yarn straightened on my monster high doll came to below her "bottom" or just at it.

Here is the video: https://youtu.be/FdXay72gpS0 inside she answers a lot of your questions are really helps create wigs that looks very much like real hair.

I used Acrylic. However I also bought yarn with out a label for this project I believe it was wool (or something like it.) Both worked out fine for me. (I DID put my Flat Iron on a very low setting, however, going over it more then once.)

Please enjoy and good luck!
I've watched quiet a few tutorials, and i follow their steps to a T, but still the same out come.

Here's a tutorial I found that mentions specific brands of yarn, what works and what to avoid. The final result looks nice.

Customs / Yarn hair length questions
« on: February 09, 2017, 06:57:51 PM »
hope someone can help me figure this out. I really want to make a yarn wig for my first custom EVER! lol and i really like the yarn hair look , buuut when i brush out the hair and yes I am using a pet brush it doesn't matter what length i have the strand i am combing out it takes so many fibers and only leaves me a shorter stand to work with and I was hoping to have longer hair strands to work with. I've tried super bulky yarns and medium yarns and still the same out come . please help, thank you .

Hello I am Rawrhug and I love monster high dolls, I am in my thirties and i can't believe i am still buying dolls. but I've loved monster since i was younger, I so wish they had these dolls when was younger then maybe things i liked wouldn't be so strange , but oh well, I have currently 17 dolls in my monster high collection and no repeats of any doll. I will post a picture of my ladies hehe , because i don't have any men monster high dolls yet lol. SO the reason i am joining this forum is because I have been watching a lot of monster high doll customs and want to give it a try and see what i can make happen, but i am going to need a lot of help, because i can never keep it simple. so i hope this is the place to come to for the help i need. Thank you for letting me join the monster high family .

RAWR !!!
