the hairstyle was
originally intended to be only a mohawk, but after playing around a bit we found
we could style it into other forms of BIG HAIR.
//semi-pigtails. sorta 'sonic the hedgehog'
//attempt at a bi-hawk. i call this the 'flower pot' style
//two strips of foam were folded in half and tied together using ouchless elastics. plastic was threaded through the loop created by the fold and braided into the smallish sections. the braid was secured with heatshrink tubing.
