View Full Version : Articuno Gijinka

So this year for Otakon, myself and several friends are cosplaying as the legendary birds. I've got most everything worked out for mine (Articuno) however I am not sure what to do for the headpiece. Articuno has those three spike things (yes, that is the technical term :-P ) on its forehead and I am struggling to work it into my costume...

Making the spikes isn't really the difficult part, its more or less attaching it to my head that I am struggling with. I do not want to use an elastic band or a headband as neither seem to work for me. Any thoughts?

It looks to me like the "spikes" you are talking about may be actually "plumes"
I would suggest taking a light blue (or whatever color you desire) bandana (or skull cap) that covers the top of your head fully and then glue the plumes (or spikes :P ) onto the skull cap/bandana and Voila! You have a head piece! I did that with my vaporeon Gijinka, and it turned out really nicely!
Hope this helps! :P
