Julie, I am very interested on one of your ROTJ sets, let us know when a new run will be available plz
If/when you get a new run, please put me on it? Thanks!
Understanding it may be a long while, I'd be in for a set of ROTJ if/when things open up again.
put me down on the next run of ROTJ braids!! awesome work!
Thanks everyone for the interest in the braids. I already have a full 3rd run which I hope to start before the end of the year.
If I do any more runs after that it will not be before 2010.
Thanks again everyone!
You excuse but I have sent you messages in private and for some reason these they don't leave for that reason I ship you the same one here!!!!!

GBH had asked me to curl the ends of the grey braid, so I thought I would post how to do that for anyone else who already has a set.
I used a 3/4 inch curling iron for about 30 seconds on each end. If you don't have access to a curling iron you can use cheap foam curlers which can be found at Wal-Mart or a beauty supply store like Sally's. When I bought these they were only about $3-4 for 20 of them. You can also just use a couple of hair pins. If you are going to use the foam curlers or hair pins I would suggest leaving them in for several hours.
You will need to periodically re-do the curls....horsehair is similar to human hair the curls will fall out over time.
For those with synthetic hair braids USE EXRTREME CAUTION if you try the curling iron method. Some synthetic hair has a lower melting/ignighting point than others. The last thing you want to do is set your braids on fire. I am not responsible if you set yourself or anything else on fire if you try this.
How are you doing with Run 2, are you almost ready to start Run #3, just waiting patiently
I had the same question
can we get anb updated list of where you are & what order the rest of us are on the run(s)
thanx a bunch
I could donate some of my hair if you're looking for some curlz.
I am almost finished with the last set of braids on the 2nd run. I've ordered the horsehair for the 3rd run. It should be here in 1-2 weeks. I'll be starting the 3rd run when the hair arrives.

Hi Julie, put on in the list with: One Set of each one (3 braid ESB Set & 7 braid ROTJ extends Sep AKA the MOM Set)
Thanks a lot Leo
Almost finished with Seven's set. I should finish his up today.
As usual the rest are in the Gallery Pics 189-209
Quick update on the 3rd run. I'll be sending out PM's & emails to the first few people on the 3rd run list to confirm that you still want the braids & which set you want.
I'll also be compiling a list of people who have expressed interest in the braids that did not make it on the 3rd run, so you'll know where you stand if anyone falls off the list.
Good to know things are still moving along Julie... nice work on the Philip Wise project.
Emails & PM's have been sent out to the 1st 10 people on the list for the 3rd run.
Yes he is and I hope to see him again very soon when I present him with his new sidearm...
Qn - You have me down as straight up ESB I'd like to confirm that it is the accurate ESB version I'm after. #13 I think.
Run 3 whew-hoo!!!
Ok, Julie if there is not any possibility!!!Put on in the interested/backup
Thank you and excuse the nuisances!!!!!!!!!
Very interested in a ROTJ MOM set if anyone steps out of the run...or even blinks....
Paypal waiting if this ever happens.........i have heard that HELL is actually getting colder!!
Hello, I know your pretty swamped but I figured hey why not try. I would be intrested in an ROTJ set. Just if you could please add me to the back up list that would be great. I know its a long shot but worth a try. Thanks and AMAZING work!!
If you've sent me a PM, email or posted here that you're interested in being on the backup list I'll be posting that list in a day or two so you can see where you are.
how the heck did i miss the third run. if somebody drops out, let me know!!!!!!!!
Julie, PLEASE (yes I'm begging)... put me on a list for a ROTJ SET.
I missed out on last run - hope to get in on the next...but those braids are awesome!!
It almost looks like you took out a whole clan of wookies to make them all.
Great Work - you rock!!!

Seven's Finished Set:
The rest of the pics are in the Gallery Pics 189-217
The 2nd run is now officially completed.
I'll be starting a new thread next week for the 3rd run.
Also, I'm planning on writing a tutorial on how to make the horsehair braids in the next couple of weeks for those of you who'd like to make your own.
This will include a list of stores & online suppliers for materials.
Julie, add me to your new list for a ROTJ set. I've being looking for this topic a long time ago, ready to upgrade. PM sent, BTW.
Julie, please take me off of your 3rd run list as I've come up with a different set in the meantime. Thank you!
Any updates on these Julie??
Just a small bumperoony...
Any Joy with the ESB Julie?
I'm right after gav on the list
