    It's either a gray, blond or white one.....it looks different colors in the various pics I've seen of it. The blond one in the pic I posted last night of the extended set represents that particular braid. I'll try to get a shot of JP wearing all of the braids this weekend, so everyone can see how the set looks/hangs.
    Another find on the "gray-ish" braid. It's just half a braid!!! It looks like one of the normal wide ones (like the blond and black ones), but chopped in half, with the thick end tied around all the rest of the other ones right behind the shoulder bell with 3 groups of black twine, then it loops around behind the arm and connects under the arm right about where the other mystery dark mini-braid connects to the full black/white mini braid, and the tail just hangs off that point.......

    Thank you for the pics. I hadn't been able to locate any from these angles.

    After looking at the pics close up I can tell you that the gray braid is made from synthetic hair by it's sheen & thickness. I have some dark gray horsehair I can use for that one, however it's some darker. I'll take some pics of it and post them for comparison this evening or tomorrow.

    Paging BH795 & Loanstar: Please check your private messages and email. I need some confirmation from you both. If you are no longer interested please let me know. I have people on a waiting list for these.

    If anyone knows either of these members, please tell them to get in touch with me about their braids.

    If I don't hear back from BH795 or Loanstar by Friday February 9th, I will be removing their names from the list.

    Julie,

    The black/white braid can be done using a 'herringbone braid'. Thats how I did mine.

    These are looking great! Keep up the excellent progress. I love seeing the stages of improvement! I'm definitely interested in a set when they become available again.

    If there is any chance of getting one for C4 please let me know!

    Julie,
    It looks like you need to extend your back up list and don't lose us
    Be sure to let me know when the new list is open and if I'm still in the running

    Sorry for the late reply...

    Received my braids from Julie, and they are simply outstanding.

    They really shine on the complete suit when it's all assembled.

    I will post a pic once I finish building the dummy for the outfit.

    If you haven't gotten on this yet, you should do so, by all means!

    :thumbup

    The communication with Julie has been outstanding, and I liked the way she sent progress pics.....
