Hi there,

I own a bought scouter myself which is pretty useful since I'm cosplaying Celipa(Fasha) from DragonBall Z in a month. The scouter comes with a headband. Problem is, when I bend forward or whatever it falls of my head so easily especially with my wig on. Therefore I was looking for some other way to secure it to my ear. Any suggestions?

Thanks in advance!

Maybe you pass the headband under the wig. and secure it with bobypins.

The plastic hairband is rather thick... Too thick to use pins anyway. I tried using a clip just now but it didn't hold to the plastic hairband.

What kind of headband is it? I have a scouter piece myself and it fits
tightly onto my head without falling off.

I already linked it in my first post: http://i385.photobucket.com/albums/oo300/leonography/DBz/DBGadget_scouter2.jpg

It's not tight enough for my small head I suppose ^^"

You can try to buy a replacement earpiece hook, remove the band and then attach it to the scouter or just mold a hook out of sculpy. I'm not sure how affective this would be, I never tried it before.

Depending on if there's room to attach it , if you can get yourself a pair of hook style headphones, cut one free and use that? Those usually stay on pretty snug.

Hmm, you might be able to remove the current band and use an actual metal band (kind of like a hair band that goes over the top of your head) for security and tightness, and then wearing the wig on top of that will cover it up.

That's an idea. I guess I will try this...
Wish me luck!

Have you considered gluing some hair clips onto the band?
I'm sure if you did, it'd stick on well.
