How to Create an Affordable Mascot Head
This is really cool I really like it!
Hi Deathofafly,I think you are on the right track. Go to a fabric store and get the thinnest, most transparent black material you can find. Do not worry that people will be able to see inside, it will be dark inside the head and nobody will be able to see through the fabric (unless they get really, really close).My Hello Kitty head does not have any fabric covering the eye holes and nobody can see inside. You might need fabric because your eye hole is so big.If I were you, I would create the head first and not even think about the eye hole until everything else is complete. You can easily attach the fabric with pins if you are in a hurry....timmy
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)
