    Apr 8, 2010, 3:17 AM - New ROTJ braid design take a look pics #1

    I have been doing alot of researching and staring at a lot of pics for a while now and working on trying to get the main section of the ROTJ braids more accurate. I have done several test braids and I have come to what i believe is as close as it will get. I realize changing them may be a big deal to those who have bought them already but I am only trying to get them as accurate as possible. It's not different than coming out with a version 2 armor or helmet when you get newer and better reference you update the product. The brown and blonde braids havent changed. The color pattern on the horse hair braids has been changed by instead of "bleaching "the black hair and only getting it so so before it gets so brittle it breaks, to dying grey hair and matching the pattern so that the look is matches the MOM braids perfectly.
    also the # of tails and the scale of the braids in relation to each other has been addressed. also the addition of a very slim black braid and the confusing looped back section as well.
    Pictures tell the story much better.

    The synthetic braids cant be dyed so the pattern will have to stay the same but all other changes with be done on all fute sets.

    Now the deal I will make replacement sections for anyone who wants one.
    horse hair replacement section $37.50
    synthetic braid section $20
    both include shipping.
    Please dont think I am trying to make a bunch of money off you guys I didnt know how to go about doing new sets and not share the info with the guys who already have them so this is what I came up with.

    I urge you to take out your braids and compare them to these.
    Thanks alot for all the support,Woody

    BTW the bottom left pic are the synthetic braids

    Hmm... too bad I didn't wait xD

    not sure if I will keep my set or buy a replacement section? maybe you can put me on hold?
    I got a feeling that everytime I see my old braid I will think that's not as acurate as it could be xD
