Okay, so I got my Clawdeen/ Howleen two pack and like most of the curly haired dolls of late, the hair looks like one big fuzz ball (think Operetta) Has anyone tried modding they're Howleen's or Clawdeen's hair? I'm thinking of straightening Clawdeen's hair at least and am really hoping it doesn't come out fuzzy. So if I brush out her hair (Clawdeen's) and then use heat to straighten it, will it not be fuzzy? I've tried straightening my DotD, Ghoulia's hair using very hot water and it only sort of worked...the hair is brushable but still comes across as puffy fuzz rather then like a doll with straight hair..I'm also curious what if anything have people done with Howleen's hair. If possible, feel free to show off your creations! Thanks
Ha ha, oh I needed that this morning: the poofy overlord..hmmm I think I'll have to make a t-shirt for my poofy Ghoulia that says that!

First, I think any heat source like a flat iron may melt the hair. I've not tried it before.
Second, I've tried to comb howleen's hair into a fro'hawk. Though it works and looks incredible, I believe I've angered the poofy overlord, cuz now her hair is bigger than before. Lol.
Good luck with whatever you decide to do. If at all possible, test a heat source on extra hair you may have taken off of a doll to see if it melts.
I adore the Howleen with the wild hair!!! Gotta get my daughter's permission to try that, also thinking of straightening Clawdeen's hair, just easier to maintain it seems..Oh wait, I really love the fro too, now I can't decide!!!!
Wow these are all so awesome, I'm starting to really lean towards the fro, it seems so her and super funky. ONly someone with a lot of spunk could pull the big hair (fro) off like that.
Howleen: Ok loved everything about the doll itself, the outfit.....Not so much. I liked the pattern and colors of the sock and dress top, but HATED with a burning all consuming passion the shoes, the dress skirt and the fact she only had 1 sock (what did Howleen eat the other one?) Not to mention my 1 and only Clawdeen sock was messed up. So I was thinking of making a custom of her. Then it hit me. Something about my original Clawdeen always bugged me (I think she is crosseyed maybe LOL). But I loved the Clawdeen that came with Howleen. So my New Clawdeen became my "Original" Clawdeen! She got a shower and fixed her hair (it was smashed) and gave her a slight restyle.
Howleen: I LOVE HER! I did take her hair down and wash it because it was smooshed. But I thought the original style was cute so I put it back up with the exception of the "superman" curl. I alway took the "H" from her backpack and thought it would be a cute earring (when I was discovering my style I wore initial jewelry, and she has an "H" necklace). I put another hole for her safety pin. I painted her nails (When I was a kid I always had multicolored nails) and I took the blue ribbon off her shirt and made it into a belt. I took the blue ribbon off the hem of her shorts. Oh I was not trying to steal anyone's "pose" just trying to show her tiny nails.
