Help with hair colour match for Italian Blossom/Lilla please
« on: November 03, 2018, 08:47:06 AM »
Hi,

I have an Italian Blossom / Lilla who has no hair at all. I would like to rehair her if there is a match for the hair.

Looking at some of the posts on Italian ponies I think she's the 'normal' one - She has a lavender body, now faded to blue, marks on two feet and eleven symbols each side. 

Would appreciate some help in how to figure out if there is a hair match for her as she's too lovely a girl not to be restored!

ah man if it were me I would go with  a purple like sour grapes that matches like magenta blossom ;-) 'cause in general those italian ponies are just an average of $10 or so

I think a regular rehair would be closer to wysteria = oh and those are dollyhair names just FYI as to source

have fun :-) regardless of your choice
loves me dem green ponies

Thanks for your reply - she would look pretty spectacular with dark purple hair.

Though I'm not sure why, my gut-feeling is that I'd like to get her hair back to as near as her original colour as possible (odd, as when I do rehairs on more 'regular' ponies I like to change the colours!!)

I've only seen pictures of Lilla, never a complete one in real life - I have a regular Blossom here, would Lilla's hair be a darker shade of purple?

Not worried about her value as she's staying here anyway, she's very pretty.

There are quite a few different Italy Blossoms, you can see them in the nirvana gallery

The Italy hair is unique in both colour and texture, so you'll only be able to find a "best match" rather than a "true match".

I've had a look at DollyHair and there are a number of different lilacs in stock, wisteria, brambleberry, hyacinth and Twilight would be good choices imho.

Sadly I don't have any Italian ponies with lilac hair, so I can't check which one of the colours I've suggested is closet for you :(

thank you for the colour suggestions
I guessed it might be a 'best match'!

I've got a 'wisteria' tail in the Pony Spa at the moment (courtesy of wild-found North Star, though she'd like her tail back :) ) and some swatches of darker purple hair so Lilla can have a bit of a tail-trying-on session. She's a bit faded to blue now so she might need a slightly different shade.

^.^

Yes, a tail trying on session is a good idea :biggrin: I have rather a lot of nylon hair in my stash and often have trying on sessions to find the perfect shade.

I'd love to see pictures of her when she has her new hair ^.^

In case it's still of interest to you, I have checked and compared two different italian Blossoms I have here with the Dollyhair colors Wisteria, Amethyst, Brambleberry, Twilight and Hyacinth and felt a 100% match only with Wisteria. This said, one of my Blossoms has a light blue body color while the other one is darker with her body color being purple. The first one is faded I guess, and her hair is a tiniest bit lighter as well. The 100% match would be achieved for the darker, probably unfaded one.

Thank you so much for the information Tiara.

I haven't been able to get hold of Wisteria hair so for now I have rehaired her with Kiwi hair 'Dahlia' so at least she's got some hair, and can go on display with some friends.

I will keep my eyes open for Wisteria hair, and she can always have a further make-over if I can find it (her hair isn't glued in)

I've taken some pictures, she still looks a bit wild-haired as I want the hair to settle a bit before styling it.

So how do I get them to show here (computer-illiterate type instructions please;) )
