Here's an image (http://i287.photobucket.com/albums/ll154/o0Kimba0o/www4atwikijp.jpg) so you can see what I'm going for. I already pretty much know what I'm going to do about the clothes(though, suggestions are always welcome, I wont stop you), my main concern is the giant fly trap off the back of the head. The LJ cosplay community made it clear that it would have to be detachable, so I know that, what I want suggestions on is the actual construction of the thing.

Also, a more easy request; wig suggestions. Preferably nothing too expensive( < $30 maximum! ) or that I'd have to cut myself. :)

Thanks in advance!

Ok well I figured I'd use this foam (http://i287.photobucket.com/albums/ll154/o0Kimba0o/foam.jpg) I found at joann's, it's about 2" thick and pretty light weight. I'll carve it into two petal shapes for the top and bottom part of the jaw and cover it with a fabric "pillowcase."

I have that much figured out, now I just need to come up with an idea on how to to the base where it would normally connect to mawile's head. I'd really like some suggestions, please! :(

Uhmmm, well you could try and make a neck brace-ish thing, and try to use that as a base to attach your lower jaw via caribiner hook, and attach the top to the bottom, but you would have to experiment... I am not even to sure if that would work....

Well I'm not really planning on actually attaching it, since it'd probably kill my back/neck/shoulders. lol So I'm just gonna carry it around separate, but I need some kind of way to make it all look consistent. It's hard for me to explain exactly what I mean... <<;
