Giant Round Head

Hello!

I am currently working on a mascot head for a cosplay that is both round and fairly large. To no avail, I haven't been able to find much information regarding on how to stabilize the head.

Does anyone have any advice or tips on how to keep the head from wobbling or drooping?

Also, is there any way to fasten the head onto the shoulders without the hassle of unlatching it from the inside? I hope to be able to pull off the mascot head easily, while covering my own neckline when it is on.

Thank you ahead of time!

Most mascot heads have a collar of sorts (usually just a wide circular bit that matches the fabric of the shoulder/ chest portion of the character). This does two things: 1) it hides your neck, and 2) it can have snaps or velcro added to secure the head to the rest of the body on the inside of the costume, thus reducing wobble.

Some large mascot heads actually have a band inside that fits snuggly to the wearers head. Like the plastic adjustable band inside a hard hat. The second advantage to no wobble is that it keeps your eye holes/ screen in front of your eyes.
