What exactly is craft foam? Is it those tiny little sheets of foam?
I'm working on a Len cosplay myself and the headset is giving me a hard time as well!

I'm thinking about going with a block of styrofoam and cutting out the pieces I need then covering it with the little foam sheets that you can get at craft stores. Right now, the thing I'm worring about the most is the wig D: I've heard that it's really hard to do high ponytails and this is my first time working with a wig!

Headset, craft foam, glue.

Try to raid the clearance bin or your local thrift store for a pair of white headset that sits comfortably on your head. Remove the wire if it's not wireless. It's a whole lot easier than attempting to make your own and will look realistic, especially the mouthpiece, since it's real.

Cut out the headphone pieces on craft foam and glue together. You can try using bike decals or colored reflective tape to give them extra glitzy power. Glue the headphone parts onto your headset and touch up areas with paint if necessary.

Attached image is the finished product, but it wasn't made by me.
