View Full Version : specific for ampharos costume!

Recently new to this whole cosplaying thing, and I am attempting at an Ampharos. So excited! My only problem is I'm having difficulty finding items for the the red jewels on Ampharos' forehead and tail. Anyone have any ideas? People have suggested styrofoam, but I want something that looks more of the jewels on Ampharos, even though this is a more humanoid costume.

I can't even think of anything that would remotely resemble the jewel with out using styrofoam. Or you can just go to your local super market and buy one of those cheap balls for the tail I am sure they will have the right size. Then yet I don't know where you live and if they will have balls for sale there!

haha thanks! and yeah I think that styrofoam is going to be my best bet. if you're talking about those super bouncy ball things they sell at super markets then yeah I know what you're talking about lol

We used Christmas bulbs cut in half for my friends "the nothing" card cosplay, they were very pretty and alterable, use shatterproof, for obvious reasons

i use risen for my nine tails cosplay depending on how you make it it comes out in a glassy appearance almost marble like and you can add pain and color you can find it at most local crafts stores but it takes a while to set so give yourself plenty of time
