I need some help making a bunny head! :3

Hey guys,

I'm just new here but I have already a problem!
You see, I want to make a costume of Laplace no Ma from Rozen Maiden, but I don't really know how to get started on the headpiece!
I've actually found a real good example of the bunny head that a cosplayer has made.
Please let me know how you would make it, it would be so helpfull!

Thanks already!

You could use Wonderflex or Fosshape, or even just papier-maché for something like that...and pad it in appropriate places on the inside so it rests comfortably on your own head.

A fantastic resource that would help you out with this one is the Fursuit LiveJournal community's memories section:
(this link will take you directly to the entries specifically about building heads)

My favorite technique to use is gluing upholstery foam (that green stuff you find at Joann's) directly to a balaclava. It's fairly comfy and you can get good ventilation.

One tip for doing the ears, is to make an outer frame for them using vinyl-coated wire, like you would use for a clothing line. This type of wire is bendable and can let you position the ears any way you would like. I've made a couple of heads with the wire in the ears and it is fantastic!!

Hope this helps some.

I used Plastic Canvas and upholstery foam for both my rabbit cosplays. One being Laplace no Ma and I've posted some in progress photo's on them.

I read through here site first before starting to understand the techniques.
