Contest:
Hair-Redo

Yikes, things can get quite hairy sometimes. Thus your task for the next couple of weeks is to re-create a Neopian Wig. You can pick any wig on the site and use anything you want to create it (string, yarn, thread, cotton, pipe cleaners, grass, corn silk, etc) This wig should be made completely by you. When you take a picture of your wig please make sure your face is not showing. You can have your pets, dolls, etc model your beautiful wig for you however. Please tell us which wig you decided to make and what you used to make your wig in the description. We're judging the wigs on accuracy, beauty, and overall creativity.

First Place

Ten winners receive the Random Contest avatar, 10,000 NP and an item of DOOM.


The Gelert Racer
by _fluffy_chic_
The wig I chose to create is the 'Gelert Race Cart Driver Helmet and Wig.' I chose this wig for a couple reasons, first, because I love gelerts, and second because it would fit perfectly on my dog. I knew I couldn't just make the wig, so I found a way to create the goggles and helmet as well (and threw in the scarf too.) I started by creating a balloon approximately the size of my dogs head to create the helmet, then I made a paper mache. I made two paper maches, one out of a flour and water mixture and one out of a glue and water mixture. The flour mixture was a complete failure, so I used my glue model for my helmet. I then took my lenses and wrapped clay around the edges. While the paper mache and clay were drying I knitted the scarf. Once the paper mache was dry I mixed clay and water and painted it over it to create a stronger finish. After the clay on the helmet and lenses was dry I sanded them to smooth them, then painted them both, grey for the goggles and pink and white for the helmet. Soon after I sprayed a clear spray paint over them to make them shine, then glued the goggles to the elastic band. I chose pipe cleaners for my wig so I could recreate the unique curls the wig has. I cut and curled the pipe cleaners then attached them to a large piece of tape, then taped it to the inside of the helmet. And that's how I turned my dog into a gelert.


Gothic Ruki Wig
by duchess_of_naught
The lovely "Styro-Woman" is modeling my Gothic Ruki Wig. Into the making of this wig went a lot of unruly yarn (red and black), aluminum foil, black acrylic paint, an epic amount of electrical tape, some glue, and a red ribbon.


A Tiny Sugar Plum Faerie Wig
by fluffy97531
My pteri loves to wear the Sugar Plum Faerie Wig, so I decided to make a real one for her! I started by finding a twig that was still green (and therefore flexible), and I wrapped it into a circle. I later painted the twig to match the colours of the image. Then, I wrapped gold gift wrap string around the twig. I took a couple holly berries from my front yard and painted them purple for plums, cut ribbon into leaf-shapes, and glued them all onto the twig. For the hair on top, I fashioned a piece of paper into a rounded base and simply glued strands of brown string going down. The three ribbons were each created by gluing eight strands of thread side-by-side and then painting over them with acrylic to better match the colours. Each hair braid I used was double-braided, meaning that I braided three strands of brown string together, and then I took three of those braids and braided those together too. A finished braid required nine pieces of string, with about twenty braids in all. After hot-gluing the braids on, the look was complete! I then used a dowel to hold it up and create the photos that you see now. This was a great chance to understand the wig before I draw my pteri in the future!


Figure Skating Wig
by hui_lai_lee
I love playing with hair, hair extensions and creating hairdos! Good thing that I had an old wig from which to cut hair from. Loose hair fiber was sewn into wefts and then attached to a base with matching thread. The base is an old pairless sock. Glue is used here and there and to attach the ponytail. Decorations are self explanatory - now I wish this wig was human size so I could wear it myself next Halloween!


Curled Blond Wig
by keeum
My entry is a recreation of the Neovian headpiece, Curled Blond Wig. I began by wrapping four strands of yarn over a pipe cleaner and curled it around a sharpie so when I repeated this step (many times over) I would achieve the same result. I then used another pipe cleaner (or two) and strung the curls together vertically in different strands of three to five so that there was a loop behind each curl. I then strung the curls together again, horizontally this time, so that the back of the wig (the curls) was secured in two different direction. Then I wove the center piece of the wig out of pipe cleaners, in a similar way to how kids weave place mats as crafts. Then I put some more curls on the part of the woven pipe cleaners that had not been covered, curled those under the wig, and wrapped yarn around the new curls to create the "bangs" in the front of the wig. I then finished the main piece by - for lack of a better word - weaving yarn in and out of the gaps in the pipe cleaner weave. For the finishing touches, I sculpted a rose out of clay, attached it with a utensil I had used to sculpt the clay, draped ribbon and a strand of beads over it, and then tucked the beads under the wig. This was a fun and frustrating task that, while rewarding, I am most certainly not doing it again. XD


Altadorian Wig with Gold Ribbon
by purple_candycane1
This is my take on my favorite Neopian wig, Altadorian Wig with Gold Ribbon. I used brown yarn, gold-yellow ribbon, and a beanie hat to make it.


Illusen's Wig
by puter809
Let's face it: Illusen's hair always looks good, and if you are an average neopian, wouldn't you want hair just like hers? I used a crochet hook, green and rusty red yarn, and lots of time. =)

Tower Princess Wig
by x_electa19_x
Materials: Yarn, Sewing needle & thread, Scissors, Crochet Needle, Paper. I made the Tower Princess Wig. First I crocheted tan yarn into a cap like shape. Second, I cut 2-2 1/2" pieces of yard and weaved them through the front of the cap with a crochet needle to create the bangs. Third, I cut several 5" pieces of yard and sewed them to cap from front to back to create the look and feel of hair. Next, I braided 9 pieces of yarn into a 10" braid then I sewed it across the front of the wig and wrapped it over to the side. Then I used pink yarn, a sewing needle and thread to make the flowers. I also made blue flowers with blue yarn and sewed all of the flowers on to the braids. The green leaf in the flowers are made of cut pieces of green paper and also sewed on to the braid. The whole creation took about 10 hours.



Second Place

Fifteen lucky people have 5,000 NP, the Random Contest avatar and an item whizzing their way.


Gothy Winter Wig
by _kohaku_
I chose the 'Gothy Winter Wig' because who doesn't like gothy winter things? I used white yarn, glitter, paper and wires ( for supporting the flips ), silk ribbon, silver paint, paper snowflake and stars in hair. I threw together a yellow lupe mannequin to model my wig. This was mostly done by altering an already existing styrofoam mannequin head by adding carved foam for the mouth and ears and covering everything in strips of paper. The ears attach magnetically, too, as to avoid putting unnecessary holes in my wig.


Chomby Flower Child Wig
by berrypickle
I decided to make a Chomby Flower Child Wig. I used yellow yarn, string, grass and flowers. I made the Chomby Flower Child Wig because I find it a very unique wig and I really like how colorful it is.


Pretty Pink wig!
by burn

Charming Wonderland Wig
by chocoshake
Charming Wonderland Wig made of embroidery floss and ribbon. I also needed a piece of paper to stick embroidery floss to it. My model is Lily the plushe cat. She looks like a wocky, doesn't she?


Seaweed Wig
by deboratibi
I fashioned this version of the Seaweed Wig with several pieces of green toned fabric (which I've sewn together), and then used modeling clay for the hairclip.


Starry Cloud Wig Madness!
by dizzyblackberry
This is the NC mall Starry Cloud Wig in all its glory! The wig is made out of cotton fill primarily, with various things holding it up. The frame is a combination of old packaging, newspaper and toilet paper rolls. I chose this wig for its uniqueness and the challenge of making it! In the end, I had to use a pair of knitting needles to hold up the sides, but it worked!


Gothic Korbat Wig
by harloh
My Pink Korbat Plushie was kind enough to model this wig, designed after the Gothic Korbat Wig. I used dark blue yarn for the hair, dryer sheets for the wig's base, oven-bake clay and acrylic paint for the spider charm, and a needle and thread to hold it all together! Hope you like it! (No Korbats were harmed in the making of this wig.)


Whipped Frosting Wig

Altadorian Wig with Gold Ribbon
by miss_slowpoke
The wig I chose is the Altadorian Wig with Gold Ribbon. My Faerie Ixi Plushie is the lucky one to wear it, and it's specially desgned for her horns to fit through! I spent a few hours making this wig out of yarn, different types of gold ribbon, and glue.

Curly White Wig with Bow
by princesslizziex3
My Striped Usul plush is modelling a Curly White Wig with Bow. I used an old headband for the wig base and then hot glue and white yarn with little pieces of rainbow string to create the curls. I made the hair bow with sheer lilac ribbon with a bit of glittery ribbon in the middle. I added some detail around the scalp with green nail polish, cut and styled and held everything in the correct place with Velcro rounds. The whole thing took about 6 hours including starting over and photographing the final product.


JubJub Tulip Maiden Wig
by rigorig
Hi guys. I re-created JubJub Tulip Maiden Wig for this contest. I choose it because this wig is really cute :) I did what I can with what Ive got at my house. I used a plastic milk bottle for hat. I used purpose cloths for hair. In addition I used some glue, some wire, DVD marker, staple and a hair clip.


Colourful Confetti Wig
by sweetdeveil_1007
I decided it would be fun to recreate the Colourful Confetti Wig. This wig doesn't get a lot of attention and while creating the real version I grew a little fonder of it.
Materials used: Paper, Shiny Plastic Cookie Wrapper (not foil), Glue/Tape, Scissors, Markers/Pens for different curl sizes, Starch Spray, Blow Dryer, Silver, Purple, Red, and Gold Fabric Ribbon, Halloween Kacheek Plushie


Fit For a Princess
by x_mystichorse_x
I decided to re-create the ''Tower Princess Wig''. My used materials: Yarn, thread, pipe cleaners, paper, styrophone, little pipe cleaner balls, glue and paint. To create it, I first created a 'roundish head' out of styrophone balls. I then took the pipe cleaners and created a circle around the styrophone balls, making them overlap so I could take my thread and yarn and make them go around. I also took the little pipe cleaner balls to make the wig higher at the end. Then I braided yarn and thread to make the braids, and finally, I painted flowers and glued them on the wig.




Third Place

Lastly there were 100 runners-up who will each receive 2,000 NP and the Random Contest avatar.
