Hi - I am trying to find a site that does the really long braid for Princess Leia ceremonial gown. I have everything else & can even do the top part of the braid bun...but I cannot seem to find a really long synthetic one. My 3 that I use for Slave Leia & then 2 for ANH Leia were $1.99 at a local beauty store.

Help from someone who knows where to go!! =)
Thank-you
Macy

I use the same one for slave and ceremonial. I attach the extension under the braided bun on top. I made a frame out of sculptural mesh that I sew the braids to for the top. I can post pics if you are interested.

I don't have that costume but the braid I use for my Leia's metal bikini is from three muses clothing. They have a lot of extensions.

I get mine from Doctored Locks http://www.doctoredlocks.com/ Since my hair is naturally curly I get the Kanekalon Jumbo Braid, because it has a similar texture to my hair. If you want a silky braid, you can get the Kanekalon Silky Straight Braid. They come folded in half and then braided, so if you want a really long braid, you can un-braid it, unfold it, and then re-braid it.

I used silky loose straight extensions (no weft) and I used those to make both the braided bun and the hanging extension. They're ~36" in length and came from a beauty supply store

Hi all - thanks so much! I didn't think the Slave Leia braid would be long enough....but I gave it some thought and I got a whole think all put together!

That hair is long enough. Smile

I used three packs of kanekalon hair of my ceremonial Leia; two for the braid down the back and one for the smaller braid around the top.

Here's mine:


My own hair forms the center with the large braid wrapped around once and then the smaller wrapped around it all.

You might want to take some of the hair out of the bun braids, they seem a bit too chunky. Otherwise, great job!

you can also talk to our resident hair dresser and see what he says about it (we have a hair dresser in our base, he's really great!) ^_^
