I am offering a limited run of 6 sets of customizable horsehair Wookie Braids. They are hafted together as well as have the ends wrapped with artificial sinew. A set of 3 includes: 1 black, 1 white/blond & one brown. Each braid is ~40-42in in length. Please let me know the circumference that you would like for the looped braids or if you would prefer to have them not hafted together. Turn around time is 1 to 2 weeks, depending on my schedule. If you need them in a quicker timeframe please contact me first to be sure I can accommodate your request. If you have any questions please email me at gaslaveleia (at) gmail (dot)com. Please do not send me a PM, I may not see it for quite some time.
Cost: $30 for an un-looped set or $35 for a looped set including shipping to the US. International orders please contact me for a shipping quote. I ship Monday through Friday Fedex. Pricing is the same for the MOM set as well, unless you want the extra braids that are hanging down from the smaller black & white braid. Cost for the extra braids will depend on sizing & quantity.
Payment: Paypal only please. Once I have confirmed your request I will send you my paypal email address.

Customizing: I like to post progress pics so you can see what you'll be getting & it also gives you the opportunity to let me know if you want me to make any changes before they are shipped out.
MOM Braids: Question from the old thread in the Cargo Hold:
Quote: "Is it possible to braid the rubber bands as seen on the MoM braids?"
From looking at close ups of the reference pics, I believe that's a flat form of sinew and not rubber bands, however I'm not 100% sure on that. I can put 2 Turks head knots on there for you. There are pictures of the Turks head knot located at the end of the braid gallery.
Depending on how exact you want to be, I can tell from close ups of the reference pics that the white (blond) braid & the brown braid are synthetic hair wrapped in a black cord & not sinew.
Synthetic Hair vs. Horsehair: Either will last you a long time providing you care for them properly. If you don't either can dry rot, mold or mildew. I have been working with horsehair since 1998 and can vouch for its durability.
Care: If the braids become dirty simply hand wash them with a mild shampoo such as Johnson & Johnson's Baby Shampoo. If you notice they are looking &/or feeling dry and dull, use a leave in conditioner like Infusium 23 which can be found at Wal-Mart or Sally's Beauty Supply.
