    Jan 28, 2008, 3:43 AM - Alternative Wookie Braid Material #1

    Hi folks,

    I really wanted Julie's braids but under the circumstances, she is unable to accommodate everyone at the moment so, I found this as an alternative wookie braid material and I think they have good potential. Julie, sorry...I didn't mean to hijack your thread. Count Dookie, thanks for the heads-up!

    I found some wavy, braided and crimped doll hair a set of 5 colors, at 5 ft. each from this vendor. They come in light brown, dark brown, sunshine yellow, golden blonde and black which is the only color not braided, but wavy. I received the items within a week so they ship fast. Here is what they look like in proportion to me.

    Okay, for TDH members overseas who are not able to get these braids don't worry; I ordered 11 sets with 4 colors and you can get it for $8 bucks shipped. Just LMK if you want to be on the list. As soon as I receive them, I'll start shipping them out according to the list. My PP info is cbgene@cox.net.

    1.Kimelius (1 set - PAID)
    2.Alcfalath (2 sets- PAID)
    3.Old Jedi Mind Trick (2 sets - PAID)
    4.Jawafive (1 set - PAID)

    Hi Matt,

    These are for 4 colors only, they were almost out of the 5 colors. The shipping cost shouldn't be that much more to WA. The braids are light and they can fit in a small mailing packet.

    Yeah, that's what I used. It's a very good alternative to the horse hair.

    Thanks Pennywise...yes they are close to the horse hair. I was notified by the vendor that the manufacturer has discontinued this product, so whatever is coming to me might be the last of it.
