One of my porcupine hair roaches

This is one of my porcupine hair roach head dresses that I made. It is 24″  long with white deer tail trim on the inside and outside. It is made with a yarn base. I can make them any size and most of the primary colors. I can’t do neon colors like someone asked me. I don’t have those dyes.  I spend alot of  time sorting the porcupine hair. I like the porky hair to be all black with color on the tips. The deer tail trim covers the bottoms. Each roach then ends up with the color of the trim then black then the tips in solid color. I sort the hair so that it gradually flows. I like the roaches to be symmetrical. I dont have jagged lines. It should look appealing. It is an important part of a dancers outfit. I make sure that the hair bounces when the dancer moves. Movement in the roach is important. The roach shouldn’t distract from the overall appearance of the dancer. It should compliment a dancers outfit.
