Question Vocaloid Headphones

So I'm new to crafting and such, and I just made two sets of Vocaloid headphones. One for Miku Hatsune, and one for Ren Kagame. I just wanted some advice and to see what you all think. Please don't be too harsh I am still new at this. >_< You can find the photos of them on my profile I guess. If you could take the time to look at them I would really appreciate it.

You should have posted a link to them xD!

Alrighty, well I really like them! they are really well made, but the thing that annoys me is it is made from that foamy material and it looks all rigity, I did the same method once and it was not easy to keep it not rigity looking. I think a better method to make their head phones is craft foam, bristol board and glue xD! But the way you did it is really nice =)

And also; I think this belongs more in this form because this one is more for asking advice on how to make stuff xD

From far away they look pretty good until I click on one photo...

I think its best if you use foam sheets for the outside part and the styrofoam for the inside part.

My headphones:

Your headphones are great but the things you use for it to make it, too rough looking and looks too itchy to wear.

Thank you very much for your input! The Styrofoam is actually not itchy at all but I can see how it looks that way. This is my first attempt at them, and I'm glad they turned out better than I thought. :3

They are very pretty, but I agree with what other people are saying

I'm making the box shape from cardboard and the part facing my ear out of foam. Would that be good for the headbands?

And styrofoam is soft. I work at the flea market sometimes and when I grab a hold of the styrofoam it is really soft. You'd be surprise. But it depends of what kind of styrofoam and the one I find soft is the one that is used for packing statues and lamp oils holders.

I'm actually against using styrafoam for these headphones. It doesn't look like headphones... the holes through the design a bit off. plus I think it'll look strange against the outfit (being holy)

anyway. i've two good really good tutorials for headphones. i myself made mine out of insulation foam and model magic but lots of different materials that have a smooth surface can be used

The styrofoam can actually work, but it's important to smooth it out. I used soft foam for mine, which I then covered with a layer of Paperclay which can be sanded nice and smooth before painting. I do like the use of glittery craft foam. Very eye-catching in lieu of making them light up.

I used styrofoam, foam(the soft crafty kind) and wire.

maybe I should have said, i'm not against using Styrofoam as a base, but leaving it like that makes it look unfinished.

Yes I got what you meant the first time and I love the tutorials you made! Next time I will try other materials when making them. The styrofoam was pretty easy to work with though and I did rush it a bit so it does look itchy and unfinished, but honestly I think they look pretty good for my first attempt alone at it.

Thank you! I thought the glitter craft foam was a good idea too. Someone said it would look stupid, but then changed their mind when they saw it ^_^
