How much fur and chicken wire did you use?

This is so amazing! I was wondering... You said you put stuffing around the chicken wire. What do you mean by stuffing? Sorry if this seems like a dumb question >.< I'm trying to dress up as Tamama from Sgt. Frog and I'm trying to figure out how I could make his head...

Pillow stuffing sheets. You can also use upholstery foam like what I used for my Stitch. You can view progress pictures of that on my fb page: www.facebook.com/hyokenseisou.cosplay

question... have you tried using the chicken wire tactic with paper mache? i'm going to be making two of these heads, and covering it in paper mache, as i'm trying to make Mr. and Mrs. Pacman heads.

Paper mache would make it far too heavy.

I was wondering how I could keep the head from flopping around a lot? I will be attending a Halloween Costume Party Dance with a costume head made similar to this, and it seems like it would jiggle all over the place. I put foam around the neck (as tight as I can while still being able to slip my head in) but it is still super unstable. Any suggestions?

This is probably a stupid question, but is it hot to wear or is the mesh netting for the mouth enough for 'air conditioning'?
Thanks for the tutorial, this helps a lot.

It does get VERY hot, because the fur acts as an insulator and there's not much circulation. If you installed a small fan in there, then it wouldn't be as bad.

Thank you so much. It's nearly impossible to find a head-making tutorial for an anime mascot character.

I made a Kero recently completely out of foam. This method seems a lot less expensive and a lot more rewarding.

I'm trying to use your method to make this but from where I am, its abit too expensive to afford. Do you have any cheaper alternative or similar?

Chicken wire and cheap fur is probably the cheapest method you can do. Sorry, good luck.

Thank you for the tutorial, your Wiz head looks amazing , i've been trying to make a head like this for ages. I do have one question though, i'm having a lot of trouble getting mine to balance on my head, it keeps on slipping down. Do you have any advice to stop this from happening?

Thank you again.

There's also some more tutorials on my youtube [link]
Check those out too. I'll probably just start posting stuff on youtube as I don't have the attention span to take pictures, upload them, edit them onto one page, add text, etc; plus I suck at explaining stuff by typing it out. So videos are definately the way I'll be doing tutorials.

I only know where to get very small pieces of plastic. I don't work with plastics anymore, I work with fiber glass.

What are you trying to make?

Thanks!

AH, right, that technique. Well I don't know where you're located, but I get my friendly plastic from Micheals Craft store.

Hope that helps!

It's a type of plastic that becomes soft and maluible when heated. I got mine at the Micheal's Craft Store. In Micheals, it comes in strips, sometimes different colours.
