Stop laughing. I know Chii is severely overdone, but darnit, if nobody in my town is an anime fan, how will they know when I wear it on halloween? ^_~

In any case. o.O Would it be a good idea to make the ears of Model Magic stuff?

No one will know who you are!! :-D when they ask, look at them like they're stupid, and say "a persocom." lol. I'm doing the same thing ^_^

I made mine out of foamy stuff sheets that i got at walmart. I like them ^_^ wouldn't crayola model magic be heavy?

I'm under the assumption that Model Magic or Sculpey would be WAY too heavy; remember, you're wearing two of these things on your head, and you'll have to deal with them for a while.. ^^; Plus there's always the thought that they might crack, or break apart.. Having a heavy head sucks, I'd imagine, so I'd just go with that kiddie crafting foam. It's very lightweight, and surprisingly easy to use! (I used it for my Red XIII ears) And.. it's cheap! :D :D

yes i too would recomend the foam...i make and sell them on my website, but they really are easy to make. first you need to draw out a pattern then cut it out....^_^..i know that Chii is becoming an "over done" character, but thats not fair to say because she has so many differnt outfits. Also, you can kinda make up your own original costume and still be Chii ^_^ ah i just love her too much...CHIII!

Model magic IS really light, actually.

XD And I'm SO AWARE that heavy headwear sucks. XD I did a Rabi~en~Rose costume. The ears and dice were just too heavy. In fact, I couldn't look down, @_@

you could try it out, i know many friends that always went to model magic since it's VERY light- i don't think it's that heavy at all

but try out diffrent things to see which is comfortable for you, sometimes it's better to try what you know

The foam paper stuff from Wal-Mart does work really well, that's what I used for mine. It's actually really cool that there are Chii's trick-or-treating (or partying) across the country on halloween ^_^ I'm being chii as well.
