So, I had been trying for months... pretty much since my hair reached APL to try this... now that it is so close to BSL, it was super easy!
I was so proud that this was my first attempt today at it and it was one continuous braid!!!

Thank you! It started out pretty thin until I got all/ most of my hair in it. There was a slight taper at the end, but that was able to be tucked in.

Really beautiful, well done! You've inspired me to try it :)

However you do appear to be upside down! (Or is that only happening for me, lol) :p

Haha.... Well, some of the pictures were taken as odd angles.... so maybe it's not just you.

Very nice! The ones I attempt on myself and others are so sad and sloppy. -_-

Really nicely done, your braid looks very thick. I am impressed. When I do it in my hair it is rather pathetic, too thin.

That is one sweet crown braid! What method did you try? I recently got crown braids down, too, but mine are not suitable for public viewing yet, so I will wear them to sleep!

I just kinda started a Dutch braid where my part usually is and did a French Dutch braid around my head until I ran out of hair to add and then braided and little tail. I then tucked the tail into the braid. It was pretty easy. Haha. I've seen other methods where people use two braids, but I like this one better. I like one continuous braid; there is less pinning that has to be done.

Congratulations! It looks awesome!

My hair is way too thick to do a crown braid, even at mid-back length. Sadface.
