  • How to Create an Affordable Mascot Head

    Thanks for this helpful tutorial! I've got a cosplay project coming up and I'm thinking I might use this method for a Commander Peepers head. I've got some experience sculpting this type of foam but ZERO experience making or wearing a mascot head, and I was wondering if anyone had advice for visibility.Since the character's head is just a huge eye, I was thinking I might make the pupil out of black fabric (either skip the highlight, or paint it on top with fabric paint.) Is there a particular type of fabric people use that's opaque enough for the effect but still easy to see through? And will I be able to see through it if my face is several inches away from the front of the head? (I'm hoping to make it as big and round as possible without making it too heavy to wear :D)
