I went to buy some collodial for the scar for my Anakin ROTS costume, and I saw that the store was still selling braids like the one I have for only $2.75 (including tax)! Before, they were about $9. Shipping in US is $3.95, I think. They will no longer be carrying these!



They come about 23" long, and they clip on easily behind your ear (make sure you have at least 1/2 inch of hair to clip it on to!).

All I did was cut it to my desired length, flattened the bottom three inches with a flat iron, tied the top of the flat part and add colored threads.





BLONDE (7 left):



LT. BROWN (3 left):



MED. BROWN (1 left):



BROWN (SOLD OUT):



FLAME (5 left):



BLACK (6 left):



They also come in WHITE.

E-mail me if you're interested.



UPDATE 2/18:

Quantities updated.

wow...that is awesome, I would totally be interested, but shipping it from CA to MN might negate any deal by the clearance...

I would think they would be light enough.
First class in a padded envelope would probably be under $3.

They look really nice Smile
If it wasn't for the fact that my own hair is long enough to make a braid out of, I might have been interested - but then again, the shipping... Rolling Eyes

So am I....I'd need a brown one with some gray mixed in it now! Very nice find though, for those that can use them!

Matt, put me down for two of the Brown ones. That is a great price.

I have a couple of Jedi friends who do some nice hair pieces they pin into their own hair when they "Jedi up". I'd like to play with them and do something similar. Smile

I havn't found anything like this locally so I would love one of these for my TPM Obi Wan if shipping to Australia is possible. Smile

OK, I bought the braids for those who contacted me. However, I was misquoted on the prices. The cashier who I spoke to initially told me they were $2, but after speaking to the manager, they are actually $2.60 + 8. 5 tax = $2.82, which is still a great deal!
