    Well I finally did one! This was a bit rushed so I ad mor to it later.

    Step 1: Grab a blade and cut off the top of your figs head following the hair line.

    You should end up with this flesh coloured pro-tec. Don't worry about the rough surface...

    Now CAREFULLY trim the edge of the head on an angle so it will form a depression when it is joined back to the head.

    Cut a strip of mink and attach it with super glue to the center of the head (mohawk style). Make sure that a small amount hangs over the front and back of the head, this will be folded under and glued in place.

    Now cut some patches for the side and glue them in place. Again make sure to leave some haning over to fold inside.
    Once that is done replace the top of the head onto your fig and check fit. Some trimming may be necessary.

    Now get the "Queer Eye" boys over and make him look Fabulous!

    Or you can just trim his hair a little and style it however you like.

    I have opted for the wet, greasy, dirty and tired look.

    Wow, this is just too cool.......I've always wondered how this was exactly done.

    Now to find some mink.....


    Could Rabbit fur be possibly used as a substitution?

    I heard about a similar technique from Calvin who has in turn learnt this from a HK 1/6 shop owner. We got hold of some fur raw material. Thanks for doing this illustrated tutorial so I know where to start.

    Fantastic Tutorial Arch .
    Brilliant method .
    After seeing how you go about attaching hair , I actually felt kind of silly .
    Thank you !

    Gung Ho... I'm pretty sure any fluffy rodent pelt should work fine . I use rabbit .
