A friend and I placed a small order for wigs and a couple items which we were curious about, the order arrived quickly and safely in about 6 working days (not counting weekends). The box is packed with some crumpled newspaper as padding which was removed before the photo below.

My custom Taiga’s head (HDD-01 / Eyeholes Closed)  is currently using a 2nd hand size 9-10 wig (DW-33 For Delf – Mix Milktea Brown) originated from LUTS, and it fits pretty well partly due to the head size and ear position being almost exact.  I had to trim part of her bangs and sideburns (for lack of better word) to the right length tho.

Before purchasing the new wigs, I had tried Taiga’s wig on Mirin (HDD-03 / Eyeholes Opened) and it turned out somewhat loose, with the edge of the wig covering the tip of the ears.

My purchases out of this joint order:

Some observation for the purchases:

ETA: Seems that the silicone cap doesn’t neccessarily prevent wig stain ^^; as I read from a comment a fellow doll owner Jme mentioned here. The cap does helps hold the wig in place tho!

Silicone cap (Size L)  is soft and stretchy, so it fits Mirin’s head very well, the only complain I have is that it smelt quite bad ^^; I’m hoping that the smell will go away in time.

Since I know that the size 9-10 wig will have some fitting problem, I purchased the Silicone cap to see if it would help keep the slightly bigger wig in place. Also I was hoping if the Silicone cap fits, it may help reduce some staining issues which the Dollfie Dream’s vinyl tend to have with darker wigs.

With the Silicone cap, I noticed that the wig definitely have more grip to the head.

Unfortunately size 9-10 wig is still a bit big, the tip of her ear is slightly covered still. But I noticed I can tuck the edge of the wig to the back of her ears.

Also her hair usually covers her ears anyway, so it is not as obvious really. The bangs for this particular style does not cover her eyes, which means it does not need any trimming.

Slightly better shot (I hope!)

With the blond size 8-9 wig, I had to remove the Silicone cap from Mirin’s head in order to put it on properly, as size 8-9 wig, while it stretches quite a bit, the Silicone cap makes it harder to put the wig on properly. Also due to the style of the wig, the bangs covers one of her eyes.

I did a quick trim during lunch break ^^

Comparing the blond wig colour with the regular wig which I tend to let Mirin wear. Unfortunately I am unable to name the source of that original wig ^^;

    Mirin looks pretty with her coordinated pink look. Thinking of getting a pink wig too, but I want it a bit shorter…like Utena movie short =D lol

      I’m probably gonna trim the back of her wigs sometime ^^ I prefer the wigs a bit shorter, past the shoulder a bit is good ^^

    I love your wig choices! That pink one is especially cute!! Luts does nice wigs, and actually, so does Leekeworld – you should get some from them for your daughters! ^o^

    Just a note about the silicone wig caps; I’m not sure if it’ll be the same for DDs, but on resin bjds; silicone wig caps have been known to stain (mainly when using a wig with a dark wig inner lining); so that’s probably something to look out for. I sometimes just use a thick rubber band around the head before putting on the wigs for grip, or I cut a small strip of velcro and attach it to the head cap. ^_^

    Your Taiga is one of the cutest customs I’ve seen, btw! ;3;

      Thanks! :D I love pastel colours, I hope in future I can find a nice pastel blue or lavendar wig for the girls ^o^ And also thanks for the warning! I was hoping that the silicone cap will prevent staining but looks like nope ^^;

      • Jme says:

        Probably best to use a fabric wig cap like the ones Volks sells? Or I guess you can always make one! ^_^

        (And mmm, if you love pastel colours, you really -should- check out Leeke! They’ve got some of the yummiest colours!)

    thank you for posting this i am planning on making my own face up on yukinos head mold, and i have been wondering about luts wigs for awhile so this really helps when i will purchase one. what size are yukino’s eyes (optical XD)i am having trouble deciding on what size i should get 18 mm or 20mm.

    • chun says:

      My Mirin currently use 22mm eyes ( Animetic Eyes / F Type / Bright Blue (RURI)), where I get the size from=here. I think if you get any smaller size the eye whites will show a lot more? good luck!

    oooh! love the pink wig! fits mirin’s personality very sweet looking. I actually bought cooking mirin the other day ^^ The blond wig is also nice, I like the contrast between the original blonde and this new one. Looking forward to seeing more pics of the girls in these wigs ^^

    • chun says:

      I wish it was the 8-9 size tho! lol I’m still hunting around for a suitable blond wig ^^; I want to find one as close to the old one lol

      • Deccaboo says:

        My HDD01 wears a Leeke World wig in size ‘E’ (8-9) it’s a tight fit on her, but it fits well and the colours and styles are lovely. They do a number of different shades of blonde too :)
