Action Figure Dreadlocks
Creating natural hairstyles for my Rasta Ann and Andy dolls was so satisfying that I started wondering if I could do the same thing for my play scale dolls and action figures. I had made a few hard cap wigs for my dolls when I was in high school, but soon I hit on the idea of attaching the hair to a "stocking cap." My wardrobe department now holds over 200 natural hairstyle wigs in a wide variety of styles and colors.
At this time the labor cost of producing these wigs relative to the price the market will bear means it is not cost effective to offer them for sale. Instead I am sharing the technique so that viewers can make them for their own dolls and action figures. I hope you will enjoy “Action Figure Dreadlocks.”
Watch for Baba Knapp and the Knapp family in future wig-making tutorials.
