I used Sculpey for the eye as well as the fang which is secured with denture adhesive. The eye is actually much thicker on the outside edge so that it points more forward. I felt that lining up the eye with my real eye was important for correct appearance.
I am no longer convinced of the safety of Sculpey and other polymer clays. Please be aware of this: http://www.mindfully.org/Plastic/Plasticizers/Polymer-Clays-Hazard-VPIRGJul02.htm

Hey! I don't know if you know this already, but I sent you some messages about your Midna headpiece. (I don't know if this website has notifications about messages or not, so I'm commenting just to make sure. Thanks!)

I'm probably not gonna remember anything that I didn't already write down. It was a few years ago that I wore this.
Hmm. The type of foam may be important. Make sure that you test whatever foam you are gonna use with the glue. Really stress test it: try to rip your sample apart once completely try. If the glue is really holding, then it's the foam that should rip. If the glue peels off the foam, then you need different foam or different glue.
Also, this is a time consuming project that takes more than a little artistic ability. If you can't sketch something, and continually revise your sketch until it resembles what you wanted to draw, then you may need the help of someone who has artistic ability.
Once I started wearing the helmet, I noticed some pressure points. Be prepared to modify the inside after the first wearing to make it more comfortable. And I would suggest some cotton cloth in between your skin and the foam.
