    Hair Bow Ideas for Shellie May

    Now that more of us here have Shellie May, I wanted to share some ideas for hair bows for her.

    Build A Bear has a small selection of little hair bows. The fancier ones, like with sequins, are like $2 for a set of 2. Behind the counter, they have hair ribbons you can get for free when you make any purchase. They have all sorts of colors and they'll give you 2 of each. They have elastic on the back, so you can loop them around Shellie's ear, Hello Kitty style. You'll probably need to stretch out the elastic a bit as it's otherwise a snug fit and doesn't look right. But be careful as the elastic can break. Sometimes, you can snip off the elastic and then wedge a small safety pin into the back of the knot on the bow and then pin the bow to her ear.

    Another idea is hair bows with an "alligator clip" on the back (not a barrette). It's easy to tell if it's an alligator clip as when you press on the clip, it opens and looks like a gator's mouth. You can get these kinds of clips all over the place... Hot Topic, Claire's, The Icing, Target, Walmart. They'll be where you normally find hair accessories. You can find all different sizes, colors, shapes and styles. They can cost anywhere from $2 to $7. On Shellie, you just clip the bow to hear ear, again Hello Kitty style. It works, looks really cute and the clip holds in place well.

    Just some ideas. Anyone have any of their own they'd like to share?

    I was thinking of the alligator clip kind. Those would seem to work best. I think with BAB, and other bear clothes, they assume that the ears are much smaller. You could get your own elastic cord and re-do it to fit Shellie, but I think the alligator clips could be more versatile.

    Completely off topic - but thank you for mentioning the hair bows at BAB! I have a pookalooz keychain that I wanted to convert somehow so that Duffy can hold him. I think I can make one of the BAB hair bows work and jsut attach the pookalooz to the elastic and put it around his paw.
    Thank you!
    If I ever get a Shellie May I will keep your suggestions in mind!

    Here are a few of the alligator clip bows I have (got them all at Hot Topic):







    And best of all, I can use them for MY hair too if it strikes my fancy.

    Aimster, those are great! I'll have to stop at Hot Topic myself. I'll bet they have some cute ones too. They tend to have "retro-trendy" things especially 80's cartoon icons, so I need to check that out. I mean, if I could get a My Little Pony bow for Shellie, that would be great!

    I went to The Icing at the mall tonight and got a few more bows: black glitter, silver glitter & hot pink chiffon. The glitter bows were buy one get one free!

    Michael's Craft store has put a lot of their hair accessories and craft items on clearance. I've only checked one of the two stores in my area (Maryland, USA) but, they had a lot of bows and clips. The ones I saw were a bit smaller than the ones aimster got at Hot Topic.

    At Cracker Barrel, we have these little witch hats and top hats that are so small that you could probably fit on right over Shellie's ear.

    I think Babies R Us and Justice might have some, too!
