Now that the 100 Days of Doll Play is over, I have more time for some of the other regular features on Doll Diaries like Wilde Wednesday, Spotlight Sites (coming up this weekend), more hairstyles and other goodies.
For some reason I find working with Ellowyne’s hair very relaxing – especially my original Ellowyne, Dark Days who I named Elle.
So I was sitting at my desk trying to decide what to work on next and started playing with Elle’s hair. She ended up with a do that looks a lot like “I Dream of Jeannie” with her ponytail up on her head.
I took one piece of her ponytail and braided it, then wrapped it around the elastic and secured it in the back by slipping the end through the braid. This does two things – adds dimension to the ponytail and creates lift so her ponytail doesn’t just hang there.
But wait, there’s more! Before her hair went in a ponytail, I turned Elle upside down and did a french braid starting at the base of her neck. I think it looks pretty cool. I would like to try it again on her but do a tight fishtail braid starting at the base of her neck instead. Then I want to do this french braid technique on one of the AG dolls whose hair is not quite as long.
Ellowyne is just SO photogenic!
So, would you like me to do a tutorial on her hairstyle? Would it be helpful?
Madelon’s Ellowyne is a lucky girl. She inherited this cute Irish school outfit from a porcelain doll that met an early demise (as in she broke). I just love the mini Claddagh pin.
For any of our readers that have Ellowyne dolls from Wilde Imagination, you are always welcome to send in photos of your Ellowynes for Wilde Wednesday.
Have a great day! I may add another post this evening, but I’m headed to the golf course today.
