Black Doll Amassing
I created a stocking cap for Cal soon after his arrival a year ago to conceal his unsightly hair loss.
Because his original human hair wig has a number of missing hair plugs, making a wig for Cal has been on my to-do listing since his arrival together with his sister, Tuesday, almost a year in the past to this date.
Profile photos 120 density wig illustrate Cal’s a number of missing hair plugs.
The unique plan had been to take care of the artist’s hair colour alternative, so I devised a plan to make use of hair clippings saved from my first grandson’s extensions first haircut*. The clippings, sadly, have been no where to be found. I regarded excessive and low to no avail.
As an alternative, I used strands from the Lock Twist braiding hair leftover from the locs long-established for Tonner’s Jon. What was finished to create the wig is outlined below in the following photographs and captions.
Cal’s head is coated with two plastic twist tie luggage which can be secured with a rubber band round his neck.
A bit of brown cloth is positioned over the plastic luggage and secured in place with another rubber band.
A white ink pen marks what will grow to be Cal’s hairline in entrance.
The above photograph and the subsequent two illustrate an software of Aleene’s Tacky Glue that covers the floor of the cloth that may develop into the wig cap where the hair shall be utilized.
Overnight, the glue dries and stiffens that area of the cloth.
The extra fabric is trimmed away from the glued space to create the wig cap. Cal tries it on for measurement.
The wig cap is trimmed a bit more. The braiding hair used, previous to clipping tiny parts of it, is proven above.
The strands of hair are clipped into small items. (Not shown, one other layer of Aleene’s Tacky Glue is smeared over the wig cap before the cut items of hair are immediately applied to cowl the surface.)
Small pieces of hair are applied over glue onto to the wig cap and allowed to dry overnight.
Cal wears his new wig, the color of which intently matches his unique hair colour. Since it’s a wig, it’s removable, though possibilities of Cal wanting me to remove it are slim to none.

*By the time I completed the draft of this put up, I remembered utilizing Grandson’s first haircut clippings on two small Berenguer baby dolls in roughly 2008 (subsequent photograph). It pleases me to have remembered what occurred to the hair saved from his very first haircut.
