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!!
