    Sep 26, 2007, 5:51 PM - Horsehair Wookie Braids Run 2 *Full* Progress & Updates #1

    *Please note I am not taking any additional braid requests at this time.*

    *Added: 05/21/2008:
    Hi Everyone,

    I really hate to do this in the middle of the run, unfortunately the place that I get the horsehair from has gone up in prices. Even with their price hike, they are still the cheapest place I've been able to find for the hair. Both the ESB set & the ROTJ are going up $5.00 each. If anyone wants to drop off the list, I will completely understand.

    The biggest price increase is going to be for those of you who just want to order the hair only. ESB hair only will now be $31 +$5 shipping. ROTJ Hair only (not including the black & white braid) will be $43 + $5 shipping. *


    Movie accurate sets:

    3 braid ESB set (1 black looped, 1 flaxen blond unlooped, & 1 silver/gray braid unlooped) with red & black sinew $50.00

    7 braid ROTJ extended set AKA the MOM set (1 small black, 1 black & white, 1 light blond (flaxen) & 1 brown braid Plus the following that are attached to the black & white braid: 1 gray partial braid, 1 black “tail” & 1 brown “tail” with 2 – 4 turn Turk head knots & 1 – 2 turn Turk head knot. The extended set is approximately 10 hours of labor. $75.00

    Also, if you would just like to purchase the horsehair only and make them yourself I'd be willing to do that as well.

    $31 + $5 shipping for enough horsehair for the 3 or 4 braid versions

    $43 + $5 shipping for enough horsehair for the 7 braid extended set version.*Does not include bleached black & white braid.*

    All prices include shipping throughout the US. International buyers, please contact me for a shipping quote. I ship Monday through Friday USPS.

    Seeker said to send his set to my address since my Boba is far better than anything he could make.

    I have the same doubt... I thought there was just 1 style accurate to ESB, but woooh, 4 options :|...

    I would also love to hear the differences, and what is the most accurate

    Once again, thanks Julie.

    Yes if there is anyway of getting on the list for any cancellations, count me in as well. Hopefully Julie will be able to some more runs later. (and just in case, I'd need ESB braids).

    There's already a long waiting list for the next run chaps which is probably why she's stated she doesn't want more requests.

    I uploaded the ESB reference pics that I have to the new gallery.

    Wookie Braid Gallery

    I believe seven from my last run had the most movie accurate version of the ESB braids. Here is the link:

    Pics #127 through 136.

    For those inquiring on cancellations and waiting lists......there are 20 people in line already on the waiting list (aka the 3rd run). If anyone falls off (cancels) on this run I will be moving people up from the waiting list to this one.

    Here's the link to the last run:

    Wookie Braid Gallery 1st Run

    It has pics of all the sets and some pics of the horsehair. If you would like any specific pics of the horsehair just let me know and I'll post them.

    No, just ordering the hair does not consist as part of the run.

    Hi Julie, looks like you're pretty busy, lol. If at all possible please put me down on the wait list for an accurate ROTJ version looped. I see the wait is long but no hurry on this end, Fett costume is in begining stages for Halloween '08. Storm trooping this year. So no big rush here just don't want to miss out on one before you completely end the run. Also, thanks much for offering the run they look great.
