    John Lennon Let It Be Rooftop Head

    Here's the head that I want to root with hair. It's a Raan head from 1999 line. Lennon Granny Glasses are courtesy of a 8 inch Harry Potter figure that had real clothes. BTW, the real clothes that Harry had would make a great Parker outfit. Glasses go into the head....and it was a royal pain to get them in. You can see by the pic that he has been prepped for root surgery. Got the hair from the Dollar Tree store...now just have to find the time/patience to do the root the right way. Anyway, here's a pic:

    And because of all their tears,
    Their eyes can't hope to see
    The beauty that surrounds them
    Isn't it a pity".

    I can totally see it! But wouldn't it have made more sense to repaint the head before you stuck the glasses on?

    He's a little on the yellowish side...but close enough to the color I want. Perfect world would have been more of a true fleshtone. I think that his hair will be long enough that it may just deflect the fact that it is a little yellowish in color. I think the hardest part is going to be able to find the guitar. I think John's later guitar is not a Gretsch. I could be wrong.

    Process has been a little slow. I have the utmost RESPECT for anyone that can root or re-root hair. Man, what a beyotch. I only have 4 plugs done so far and my fingers are killing me. My dad was a tailor and now I know what he used a thimble when he would use the old needle and thread...one is so you don't poke your finger and bleed all over the place and two is to help with leverage getting the needle through rougher material. Going through vinyl heads is ROUGH! Hopefully I'll find some time to get back on this project. Only about 30 - 40 plugs to go

    I use a pair of craft needlenose pliers to push the needle in and pull it out the other side. Saves a lot of stabbing.
