Also,
Any ideas on extra props for Koenma?
I was thinking of making an excessively large wooden seal.

A seal would be so epic XD
As for the pacifier, I'm not sure how big you can get them, but I'm sure modifying one shouldn't be too hard.

And at last! Someone uploaded a pic of me as Kurama at NYCC:

... I should really finish my collar already. ^__^'''

Our Koenma made her pacifier with a small wooden dowel inside it so she could clamp down on it with her teeth. I'm not sure what she made it out of, Sculpy or Paperclay I would think. Although Model Magic would be a lightweight solution. Or if you wanted, you could sculpt it out of any of those and cast it in resin for a smoother finish.

Thanks SOOOOO much!!!
I will look into using the model magic with a dowel and putting resin over it. (I assume that is how I'm supposed to construct it?)
By the way, Loveanime18, your Kurama cosplay it SWEET! props to you.
Also,
Any ideas on how to construct the giant seal?
It would basically looks like a giant wooden hammer/mallet.

I wouldn't suggest putting resin over model magic. If you use that medium you'll generally just sculpt it, then give it two to three days to dry completely before lighting sanding it and adding gesso overtop, if you like. You shouldn't need resin unless you plan to cast the entire thing out of it, though I don't think it'd be necessary.

Ok so I should just use model magic and forget about the resin?
I was thinking of getting on of those ring pop suckers and taking the sucker off then using the base and attaching the ball of model magic to it.

That could work, but the base would be a little small, plus the "stick" in the sucker doesn't stick out far enough for you to bite onto, so it may be difficult to keep it in your mouth with something heavier on the opposite end.

I agree with HeeHee, you might want something longer for you to keep you teeth down on, so you'll have a firm grip in your mouth XD

I was thinking putting the part that goes around the finger into my mouth, then attaching the model magic to the side where the candy used to be. Probably with some adhesive.
Also I just started working on the giant seal. I'll post some pictures when i'm done.

Aw, your wig is flipless

Besides that, it looks really awesome! Glad you got a picture.

Might I suggest however, you color your eyebrows?

You have no idea how much I wanted to, but I couldn't buy the necessary makeup required to do my eyebrows. Why is makeup so expensive?!
I guess I should learn the ways of acrylic paint as well.

*Is still looking for a prettyful layer wig in a prettyful color*

That glue/acrylic paint mathod is pretty useful, isn't it? I actually have yet to try it, but I plan on using it to do my sister's eyebrows for Yoko.

Also, I might have to endeavor a Hiei wig. I'm scared

I also have green contacts in my room for Kurama.
Though I'm yet to actually go to the eye doctor to see if I'm able to wear contacts.
I have no sight problems so I shouldn't have a problem wearing contacts, but you're suppose to go to the eye doctor... but I don't feel like it... it's an endless cycle XD

All I can say for Hiei's wig is let gravity be your friend and don't work against it. XD

I'm just a little scared about wefting in the white. I've never wefted before, and it looks like it'd be a little hard to do it in that little zigzag pattern...

If anyone's got any suggestions, let me know! Styling Yoko and Kuronue, however, should be no problem. I'm acually STILL waiting for them to come in the mail.

Are they loose strands or are they already on a mesh?
