Thanks to everyone who voted!! I LOVE the carousel custom's curly hair. ^_^
Her name is Zahirah. Wish you could see her in real life...she is so uber sparkly! Her name means "brilliant".
She is not for sale. Please click on the icon to reach her page.


Here's a test project:

Trying to dye nylon glow-in-the-dark hair. Yes, those are little yogurt tubs and disposable chopsticks. Unlike other colors of nylon hair, this stuff does NOT take dye well at all. The hair feels a bit different...it's a little heavier and a tad greasier. Even after a wash in dishwashing detergent, this hair was barely dyed even after sitting in the concentrated dye for DAYS! Not even worth a pic, because you wouldn't be able to see a difference. Ugh.


Test re-root with nylon hair: poison ivy, blend of barely dyed glowing hair + electric banana, key lime. The blended stripe glows. I added a few extra plugs of pure glowing hair in the middle between the two rows of holes. If you blend too much regular hair in, it cuts down on the brightness of the glow! Keep this in mind when designing your next glowing custom!

And my new project:

Sugarberry pose pony. It's actually NOT a Sugarberry, but rather TAF Pillow Talk. Working on a concept sketch now.
