Tut: Monster High Hair, Wigs by MichaelisK Tut: Monster High Hair, Wigs by MichaelisK
oh lord my nails look so awful in this. I am a terrible boy who needs to learn to file his nails down before photographing things.

The information within can be applied to any playline doll, but seeing as I was getting many questions on my Monster High body prep tutorial re: wigs, I applied it specifically to them.

I do not generally use wigs in my playline fashion doll customs, unless I am going for a specific effect or difficult hairstyle that would be better obtained or maintained via a wig, but the choice is yours.

Before anyone asks about the wigs used in the tutorial:

* The Liv wig was borrowed off of an Alice in Wonderland Target Exclusive doll my sister owns, as I don't own any Liv dolls. They're creepy. It is NOT for sale, and that is where you get it.

* The Moxie Teen wig, complete with the crocheted cap, came off my Moxie Teen Bijou doll.

Thank you for looking, once again, and don't be scared to ask questions.

Can you change the skin colour of a monster high doll? If so, how? Acrylic paints? Or is there a better method?

I think Liv wigs are far, far, far, better than MT wigs. I've used both and I think MT wigs are humongous and the Liv wigs I've bought have been perfect.

You might want to change the PukiPuki to Pukifee. Pukipuki wear size 3-4 wigs, Pukifee (and lati-yellow) wear size 5-6. Since Live/Moxie wigs fit pukifee too, I'm assuming this is what you meant!

Thanks for the great tutorials though. I caved and bought my first two MH dolls so we'll see how this goes!

If you de-hair your dolls first, the LIV hair wigs are just amazing. All you have to do is remove the peg and it's a perfect fit. If you have the creator kit, you can just keep the peg too.

for monster high dolls, liv doll wigs WILL work for the following - cleo, create a monster vampire, draculaura, ghoulia - i tried on frankie doll - her head is too big - might get a tight squeeze IF you cut the frankie's hair off - but don't do this if you don't want your frankie's hair cut or if you want to switch wigs with the frankie doll, clawdeen maybe the same way, her head looks about the same as frankie's, abbey - i'm not sure, i didn't try it on my abbey because i don't care to, i like my abbey the way she is, toralei - if her ears weren't there then i think a liv wig would fit her head, but i said THINK it would, doesn't mean it will, spectra yes a liv wig fits on her head - cupid i dunno, possibly if you cut her hair or if you straighten all her hair, nefera - don't have but i don't think i'd work - she's built to be bigger then the other dolls, so i'd say no, but i'm not sure either. hope this helps

If you are using the Create-a-monster kit, the LIV wigs actually work PERFECT as the peg matches the MH wig peg. I created a dragon girl and used a long blond LIV wig. I plan on trying Moxie Teens when I edit an existing MH character though. Thanks for the tutorial!
