hi all~

been wanting to DIY a palmtop tiger for my taiga cosplay, but i'm not sure where to start :/
what kind of materials should i use...? my friend suggested paper, but i'm not really sure if it will work. furthermore, should i start working on the head, or the body first? and would super glue be sufficient?

asking for opinions and advice~ this is the first time i'm trying out DIY :P
thanks in advance for your help! m(_ _)m

use sculpy and possibly some tinfoil for the insides so it'll bake properly.

Well a possibility is to get a palm sized orange cat plush and sharpie the black stripes on? I don't know if they still make those anymore but it's a possibility. d: Though I don't think they'd have that expression, lol;

In my experience, Crayola Model Magic works amazingly well for things like this. An no baking is required. Though you may want a layer or two of Gesso on it after it dries to keep it smooth and crack free. It also helps a lot when painting.
