Just thought I'd post a few pics of recent work, first up are some short dreads in three shades of blue which I made for the lovely Marie as part of a fake hair swap - here she is showing them off:

another pic of the dreads by themselvesCollapse )

These flamey braid falls were a birthday present for a friend last month - made up of synthetic braids in red, yellow, black and orange with loads of matching plastic accents for texture:)

And finally, my most recent set of extensions for myself - mid-length double ended dreads in black, dark orchid, neon purple and magenta:)

Comments and questions welcome as always:)

knitting_kitten8:18pm: Brand New Pink Shock falls!
I've made these by taking black, magenta and silver yarns and crocheting them into chunky chains, which resemble braids close up and give a good texture. These falls are nice and full and give good coverage yet they're still lightweight. Each fall is made of 40 strands tied onto a length of half inch thick black elastic, so they're easy to attach and comfortable to wear

More pictures behind the cut:)

I've priced them at £16 which includes first class recorded delivery within the UK.
As always, feel free to email or post any questions or comments.

depechemaid10:13pm: Loli-esque curly black wool falls for sale
I made these Lyndi falls this week, inspired by the Gloomcookie character of the same name:)

Made from super-chunky jet black wool with a curly, almost ringletted, appearance and mounted on strong black elastics for ease of use these are perfect for hitting your local goth club!

Despite giving full coverage, they are also very lightweight and comfortable to wear and so are equally suited to wearing from day to day when you don't have a special reason to get glammed up but just fancy some big bouncy hair :)

Tiny purple satin rosebuds adorn the falls for an unusual and lolita-ish feel and are sewn securely to the hairpieces by hand.

depechemaid2:03am: Show off post:)
And while I'm in an updatey mood, here's another customer pic of the ever-lovely miss Malice Doll, wearing her birthday dreads- 66 double ended dreads in black, emerald green and magenta made by me, with fab matching beads whipped together by knitting_kitten - look closely, there are black and green swirls, hello kittys and jack skellingtons in the mix!
Miss Malice made the crown and clips herself, craft goddess that she is.

depechemaid2:01am: Edit: sold!
My Little Pony falls

These falls are my personal favourite colour combo of all time and remind me of being a little girl playing with my My Little Ponies - some things don't change much!

Made up of chunky yarn braids and twists in black, pink and two shades of purple with matching plastic lacing galore, the 30 count falls also feature skinny ribbon accents.

Mounted on strong black elastic, these shoulder-length hairpieces simply tie over your pigtails or buns for a night out and can be swiftly removed for work/college the next day if they insist on cramping your style;)

They are lightweight and comfy to wear yet give full coverage - wear them as a pair, or together as a huge single ponytail, it's up to you! The pink yarn and plastic is also UV-reactive so you can glow away to your hearts content under Club lights:)

£24 including UK postage*

Front and back views of the falls being worn behind the lj-cut, these give really nice coverage!
