Our Generation Custom Tauriel Doll

This is a rescue/ restoration that we did with an Our Generation that we renamed, Tauriel.

We decided to make a custom Tauriel doll from an Our Generation doll. Tauriel is from the movies; The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug and The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies.
We found an Our Generation doll at Savers for $4.99 with most of her hair already removed. Poor doll! :(

Tauriel has a hair weave made of  100% Nutura hair that I found at a thrift store. I used Gorilla super glue on the head of Tauriel to fasten on the hair weave around the head in a circle. This technique worked beautifully. You can comb and curl her hair without a problem.
 Many years ago I watched a video by Stephenswodadancer
"How to Rewig Your American Girl Doll Using A Weave",
which inspired me to do this.  I  basically followed this video to rewig Tauriel. Tauriel looks amazing!

Tauriel's long beautiful hair!!

I know that the outfit Tauriel is wearing isn't accurate to her character, but we will try to get a Tauriel outfit for her.

Here is an adorable picture of Cherry Blossom!! I hope you all enjoyed seeing our custom doll Tauriel please comment down below and tell us what you think!! Thanks for viewing this post!!

  2. Wow, the hair really does something. I'm not a big fan of the OG face molds, you might have changed my mind.
    Really like the name. My AG #61 wanted to be named after the same hobbit character, she ended up with Tauralie.
    I hope AG make more articulated cats. Cherry blossom is gorgeous.

    2. Thanks Quin ley, I really like her bangs too. ;D I got the wig at a thrift store. I'm so sorry the words were so small that you could barely read them. I just fixed that so now you can read the post better. There is more info on her wig above in this post. Thanks for asking us questions and let us know if you have any more questions. Hope that helps! ;)
