Edit by SlyOwl: These two topics were rather similar and apathetic, in a short space of time, so I've merged them with the main discussion of wigs.


Ok, well Woody sucessfully made a nice male wig. It's time to make a good female wig.

Here's a wig from the movie Marie Antoinette:

I would like some wigs like this, but I don't think it would sell much.

I think we should make womans wigs since, it doesn't matter if your a pirate fan, it gives interest to the person the pirate is killing, and it just brightens up the theme.

Woody64's wig.
Michael Jasper's wig (not sure if this is the right kind...)

You could do brick-built versions (like Michael Jasper's) - Willy Scott hairpiece?

Shouldn't this, along with its male counter-part, be in Mini-fig customisation.

wow... kind of expensive.... :pir_bawling:

Thanks for that, it is a very good idea, but I'm thinking of doing something more accurate, with more details. :pir-blush:

Hmmm, that looks really good. Can you make a clear view of it so I can see the details better.

I see your going for this look:
http://www.marieanto...hotos/cake2.jpg

Ok well try to add more curls to your design, you can stick with that design and just re-edit one to diversify your options, but basicly, the wig looks too smooth, it needs to have more curls. Also try to extend the sides in a way, like in this example.

Also try another version like this:

The only slight problem with Woodys Male design is its a bit short, It should be lower, by the imaginary Lego earloaves.

specially great for the French and Brits, but may just as well be good to have a special pack to get that...

I would love to new wigs, but i hope that they will not be expesive.
new woman hair/wigs would be very nice as well, because we don't have that many female hairpieces. :pir-sceptic:
