Friendship hairpieces good for Pirates?

31 posts in this topic

Does anyone else think that Andrea's hair from the new Friends line could act as a governor's wig? I might buy a set for her hairpiece then build some random thing with the pieces. :pir_laugh2: If you have her hair how does it look, post it if you can. Thanks and your welcome! :jollyroger:

I'm not entirely sure about this but I believe that the LEGO Friends have different sized figs and their heads our bigger than ours :pir_laugh2:

But if I'm not correct (I haven't paid much attention to LEGO Friends) it would look pretty cool.

You can indeed switch hairpieces from regular minifigures and Friendsminifigures.

There is a picture of how the hair in question looks on Jack Sparrow in Hinckley's review of 3061, althoug you have to scroll a bit down.

Funnily enough it was also one of the first things I thought of after seeing the picture. I guess it reminded me a little of Tordenskjold for some reason.

mmm no, I don't think it could work "great" to governor wig, the minifig looks like "Weird Al Yankovic" to me :pir_laugh2: :pir_laugh2: :pir_laugh2: :pir_laugh2:

I think it is quite a good idea, but perhaps a gouvernour should have it in a light gray or white colour.

Perhaps I need some friends too. :jollyroger:

when I saw it I personally thought it would look good on a minifigure of Brian May :pir_laugh2:

I actually thing it looks quite good... it has a traditional cavalier or 17th century French look, at least I think. Although, it looks somewhat like Weird Al, but then again, Weird Al's hair could belong to a cavalier or a French man.

17th century French look . . .

My first thought too, reminded me of one of the officers aboard the Acheron in the final chase scene. Or one of the POTC pirate lords. Can't seem to find a screenshot online. :pir-sceptic:

As for the original question, I wouldn't use this piece for a governor unless it was painted grey. It's a great mold though, thanks to TLG for making if minifig-compatible.

I rather like the look of it. Yes, it would need to be painted to pass for a powdered wig, but I think the general shape is pretty good.

Does anyone have a part number for it? I looked through the minifig headgear listings on bricklink, but didn't see it in there.

I thought the same thing. Here's the best screenshot I could find:

Fantastic, the haipiece fits perfectly, I'm gonna get some of these 'friends' sets :pir_laugh2:

LEGO is trying to draw girls with these new theme but I can imagine how a grown up man walks into a store, get all the friend sets and when a shop assistent asks him about a possible niece he's buying all this girly lego for he simple answers; "not at all, these are for myself".

And so leaving the assistent with the thoughts "what a strange man".

:pir_laugh2:

I think I'm gonna ask my sister to buy them for me.

LMAO! Yeah, I think I rather buy the hair pieces on bricklink than go into the store and buy it... Although I do have nieces that I can use as an "excuse"

After seeing the side by side comparisons, I agree that the Friends hairpiece might not be the best for the governor, but I do think it would work for early Golden era (1640's) MOCs. Something about it just screams Restoration to me.

I happened to be at the store today and remembered it's my "niece's birthday". :wink:

Now to find some paint. :pir_laugh2:

:pir_laugh2: You're a girly man!

:pir-hmpf_bad: Am not! The wig shop ran out of male wigs.

I think that it could work, but maybe dyed white.

This question was answered months ago, in this very thread with pictures.

Please do not bump threads for no reason.
