What a fascinating interview with Yatabazah, Artist, Wig Maker, Designer on In The Doll World doll podcast at www.inthedollworld.com/podcasts
Yatabazah, shares with us how his love for hair and wigs was inspired when he was around 9 or 10 by a ponytail his mother kept of her own hair. He talks about how he would snip strands from it, unbeknownst to his mother to create wigs for his sisters dolls, with whom she was the only one that allowed him the freedom to play with dolls.
As he created wigs from these strands he was so taken with how transformative hair could be, not just from taking on a new persona when wearing it but how it reacted to all types of outside stimuli.
We also talk about how hair and wigs reveals so much about the personality of a person just by the way they chose to wear their hair and the power that comes from that.
His story also touches on how dolls are so much more for him, how they have helped him during many times in life and how being with dolls is something that most people don't talk about or feel comfortable in sharing that way. His story allows for others to be heard and understood.
Yatabazah has created handmade doll wigs and headpieces for Popovy, Pasha, BJDs, Blythe, Mdvanii, Mamzelle de Paris, Enchanted doll, Barbie, Silkstone and many more.
