    There is an S shaped hook that connects his strings to a latch on his cap. I’m using needle nose pliers to hold the s hook and unlatch it from the cap. To put it back on I just hook it again. You can’t break the strings if they’re elastic.

    what exactly did you do to take off the cap? i have to pull really hard to lift it up, and im not sure how to detach/reattach it without completely messing up. im too paranoid and cautions because i think that ill break the string and ill never be able to put it back together again xP

    OMG, MUPPETS!!!

    OK, after le random moment, thanks for the post, you make it look so much easier than it is (it’s easy but tedious). But then, I’ve heard DZ’s are easier to restring than other dolls (I only have two Luts girls and…more Luts girls on the way >_<). Anyway, this is really helpful!
