Subject: Re: [Puptcrit] Puppet hair: lightweight and "volatile"

Apart from silk threads try removing the hair from Barbie and Bratz dolls 
recycled from charity stores. Most are fine enough to show "life".

Subject: [Puptcrit] Puppet hair: lightweight and "volatile"

Hi all.
I am turning towards my elders for a very important piece of advice.
The director on the puppet movie I am working on has yet another specific 
challenge for the puppet (and I).
He wants the main character's hair to be so "volatile" that it will be 
affected by gravity, especially when he is crawling upside down on the 
Which means that all of the synthetic hair that I've tried so far are way 
too stiff.
Especially at this lenght of hair. My puppet head will be 4cm x 6cm (1.5 
inches by 2.5 inches).

Any suggestions?
Even unusual or theoretical?
