So my friend, who is also a fellow mascot cosplayer (if you don't know what that is, think of those big, foamy creature costumes), is in need of some help. She is making a full Palkia cosplay from Pokemon: Diamond/Pearl with high density foam, LED light eyes, and all other kinds of cool effects.
Here is a pic in case you need a refresher of what Palkia looks like: http://img.pokemondb.net/artwork/palkia.jpg
We've come across a bump in the road with one of the design aspects. We'd like to create the pearls on the shoulders to be 3-Dimensional and have a smooth, plastic surface for that extra "wow". She'd prefer if she could also have lights in it too:3
However, we're having a lot of trouble finding a decent site that'll give us exactly what we're looking for. We're looking for something that isn't a salad bowl with a flat bottom, but will still give us a dome shape. Our desired dimensions are 4.5'' for each "pearl", though our results have either been larger or smaller than what we want.
If anybody has any websites that have what we're looking for, we'd be forever grateful and forever in your thanks
