The Poor Man’s Guide to an Easy No-Sew Doll Wig Cap and Wig

Do you have a bald doll? Do you have absolutely no ability to sew or make wigs? Well it’s your lucky day! Because with The Poor Man’s Guide to an Easy No-Sew Doll Wig Cap and Wig, your bald dolly can have hair in no time! *yaaaaaaaaaaay*

The first thing you need is some tacky glue, a cruddy paint brush that you couldn’t care less if it died in a fire, and saran wrap!

Wrap your dolly’s head in the saran wrap like you’re trying to suffocate it! Seriously, stretch the saran wrap downward so there’s as few wrinkles as possible, and secure it tightly with a rubber band / twist tie / etc.

Wrap the doll’s head tightly again, but this time with a thin fabric that you will use as the base of the wig. I used thin cotton. start painting a layer of tacky glue alllll over the head.

Let the tacky glue dry (you may want to do a few layers) and when the fabric has hardened, you can cut the cap to the shape of the hairline. If you cut the saran wrap, you must wrap the doll again! Keep the doll covered safely in plastic wrap!

Apply hair (whatever you wanted to use, faux fur, alpaca, etc) by adding a small chunk at a time. Be sure to remove any undercoat or extra fluff from each bunch before applying to the wig cap. Paint the spot where you want to apply with glue, add hair, paint over again with glue to secure.

Go row by row until you reach the top.

This is where it gets tricky - It’s hard to see in the photos, but first you apply a chunk of hair going *against* the direction you want it to lay. Then, you add a small amount of glue and *fold* the hair so that it lays flowing in the correct direction, and creates a nice looking part in the hair.

And there it is! The Poor Man’s Easy No-Sew Doll Wig Cap and Wig! Enjoy!

!Extra tips!
+This method works with faux fur, alpaca, fibers of all sorts, thread, feathers, whatever you want! The glue is what worked best for us! There is nothing set in stone, Get creative!
+Drawing on a dried wig cap can help if you need to know where your part will be and which direction you want your hair to go!
+This is an excellent method for boyish or pixie wigs! Cutting as you go is also possible, but the end result can look a little choppy if you aren’t careful. For some people though, its much easier to cut as you go to create a more layered look!
+THE WIG CAP WILL END UP A HARDCAP! It will only fit similar dolls to the one you made it for!
+You can also keep a pair of scissors handy to cut into wefts first, paint glue on, and then add them.
+Laying down Saran Wrap on your workstation can help with keeping an easy to clean spot. 
+Glue WILL dry on the brush. In our experience, hay brushes are the easiest and don’t stick to the fibers as much.
+The finished products are delicate, and should only need light brushing or treatment with appropriate products!
+There is no set method for the part, everyone has their own method!

Lastly, if you use this tutorial, we would LOVE to see your wigs! :)
Here are some made using the method here!

How do you get the illustrations with the candy looking like you want (brown hair and green eyes)?

Okay, so I’ll walk you through this. It’s really easy once you know what you’re doing.

We’re going to take this picture and change it.

Right-Click an illustration you’ve unlocked and open image in a new tab.
!!!This can only work if you have the illustration already unlocked!!!

The header will read something like
assets.mycandylove.com/picture/web/normal_short_white_red/200-4533909ff8a0077d~1484236225.jpg

We’re going to focus on the three words short, white, and red. First word is for your hair style, the second is your hair color, and the third is your eye color.

Hair Style - long, curly, short
Hair Color - black, blonde, blue, brown, cendre, green, light_blue, orange, pink, purple, red, white
Eye Color - black, blue, brown, green, green_blue, grey, light_blue, pink, pink_yellow, purple, red, yellow

In the future, I hope that skin tones will be a part of the illustrations, and we can change them the same way without having to replay the whole game.

For now, we’re going to change the code to long_brown_green, resulting in this image.

And that’s all there is to it! Hope this helps!

Making Stylesheet (CSS) Tweaks to your Tumblr Theme: 
To change the styles for your theme — without editing the theme HTML — go to Customize and follow these steps. Some theme developers offer CSS (Cascading Style Sheet) snippets to make specific customizations.

For example, if you use Tumblr’s default theme (Optica), be sure to see Optica Tips. Optica theme users can find CSS snippets to…

Jan. 22, 2015 Update:
The Optica theme stylesheet changed. To reinstate the dates for posts on index pages, add this CSS:

.date-notes .post-date.post-date {
     display:block;
}

Hiya there! Say I want a steampunk kinda look for my Glowing Shoyru without using NC, what could I do?

Ah, well going for a NP only customization is easier than it has been before! So you are in luck, sadly though NP items can be either really hard to find or expensive (101′s typically being the most costly since they are from events/plots).

What I do whenever I am trying to do a NP only customization I would go to Dress to Impress

http://impress.openneo.net/

You can either put the name of your neopet in the search box and click the customization button, or you can select the color and species of the pet you desire. 

When you go to the customization page there will be a search box. 

Click the advanced search options

Over here you can pick if the items will be either NP, NC, or both! For you, it would be neopoint items 

Then you can click on occupies zone, which will give you the same options like it would on the customization page (so like background, background item, ect), or instead, you can input a name or a word that you are searching for. So like if you want steampunk, you might let say put the word either steam or punk in the name contains bar. So just items with those words would show up.

As well with an item if you hover over it you will get the option to either “wear” it on the pet, which puts the item in your closet on DTI and you see how it looks on the pet, or to just close it if you want to just grab a bunch of items then put it on the pet. Yet on the right corner, there is an i on there. 

Click on the i and it takes you to a page that has the item’s description, link to Jellyneo’s Item database, shop wizard, super shop wizard (for premium Neopet users), and other links. 

As well it shows how it would look like on other pets/shows what pets can wear it right below and if you wish to add it into your wishlist/tradelist if you have an account on DTI.

Yet if you want an outfit, here’s one that I tried for you.

Revealing my Twyla’s new look!
I’ve also included the steps of my Twyla’s faceup~ but I did not include how I wash, straighten and cut her hair.

I dislike her original makeup, that I had to make a comparison photo of the before and after! For which, the after is much cuter!

Hope this is useful! This is my first time adding lashes to my plastic doll. I TOTALLY LOVE IT! IM JUST CRAZY FOR IT! MEGA CUTE! I really like how natural it turned out to be^^ I would definitely add lashes to ALL my future customs! Many more customs to come!
