I liked Quickblade's modification of the beard/hood
so much, that I had to try it out myself. I'm fairly pleased with how the other modified beards worked out. I've wanted to make use of the dwarf beards, but I've been disappointed with the headwear/hair possibilities. These beards work with various long hair options.
I've included my rendition of Quickblade's mod for the sake of comparison. The dwarf beards were quite tough to cut, as I'm using an x-acto blade rather than a Dremel, but thankfully I only cut my thumb once.
