Scalp opening for Superior type Blythe dolls

Filed under: Blythe Diary — theblythemummy @ 3:27 am

I have decided to give my Save The Animals Blythe new hair. While it is true that those sassy curls of hers was one of the attractive traits about her when I first bought her, but I later found out that I hated the rough texture of her hair. It’s too coarse for my liking.

Sooo I decided that the little Tomboy of the group is now ready to be a lady. I had bought her some wefting hair from a Taiwanese website.

The instructions were not written in perfect clear english, but with the help of the pictures, it seems simple enough. So I took the plunge and place the order for the hair.

I chose Khaki in the end. Two skeins of it in all. The texture is AMAZING. Very soft and silky. Am not sure if it is enough though at this point of time, but it sure looks like it is enough at the moment.

The scalp opening was nothing, nothing short of a nightmare. Madam Puchi had made it sound so simple and effortless. This is the website I had gone to for instructions.

It sounded simple enough but they must have used a whole tube of glue of my girl at the factory. I took two nights, a cut on my finger before I finally removed her scalp. Even so, I had damaged it very badly in some areas.

Look at the damaged scalp and flange in the pictures below.

I had followed every single instruction written on the website but found that it was impossible to gently pry the scalp off. Did I end up missing some instructions? Like to soak the head in warm water before proceeding to remove the scalp? Will be great if someone could point out where I had gone wrong.

Now I worry that I cannot fix her scalp back to her head probably after this degree of damage.

Anyway, her hair is in the process of being sewn on now. It should be done in a day or two. In the meantime, my poor girl is hiding from the paparazzi with the help of my brand new Lulu Guiness scarf (Athena’s birthday present to me!) and her sunnies. The lucky girl! I have not even used it myself yet! But I figured out that she deserved every bit of it due to the stress I am subjecting her to. I will be miserable if I am forced to live without hair, even if it is for a few days.

Tell her that she still looks good! I promise to fix her in the next two days. Perhaps I will even take her to New York with me, to make up for the trauma she had gone through. I am keeping my fingers crossed that I can fix her by then.
