buy craft sheet foam from a craft store; lewis craft or Michaels. You can use plain white glue on sheet foam, but I preferr super glue to save time. Once your foam ears have been created you can attacht hem to your ears with a headband or ribbon or something, or bend some wire to curve around and hug them to your ears like those headphone ear clips.
Good luck hon!

You're going to actually buy one?? I mean, I don't own one myself, but most of the good glue guns are kind of expensive. You may want to see if you have a friend that has one or something.

But I highly recommend using a glue gun anyways... Don't get discouraged, the ears come out really well with this method. I've done it before. :)

You can get them from almost anywhere. When I made mine, I got my glue gun from the dollar store (I have a better one now). It cost me a total of $5 Canadian to make it, good luck on yours ^_^

Yay for dollar stores. XD I just spent ten dollars on JUnk food there. ^^; But I also bought a hiar clip thingy for my Ed costume... since my hair isn't long enough for a ponytail. Nothing fancy, but it'll work.

Anyway, on the Chii ears. I think foam looks quite nice. It just looks so cool and animey. Heh... my post was like no help what-so-ever.

you can buy a cheap craft glue gun at a craft store where you buy the sheet foam. $5-$10 will get you a small glue gun to get you started.

i just thought of a new idea~!!
if i use beads to make a chii ear it will be easier and it will look different from everyone else's~~
but i dont know if its a good idea~~

Ohh... beaded? You mean like soliud beads? I think that'd look pretty unique. And if done properly, pretty spiffy.
