Question SF-A2 Miki ahoge?

I'm trying to figure out how to make SF-A2 Miki's ahoge .I would prefer it to be removable for transporting to cons. Any thoughts?

Magnet and felt at the base of the ahoge, and beneath the wig meth?

If you make the ahoge using wire or foam, make it thin at the base. Cut a SMALL gap in the wefting of the wig where you need it, push it though then secure into your wig cap with pins.

I did an ahoge for Utatane Piko out of wire and wefts using this tutorial:

The ahoge can be taken off from my skincap wig though it takes a little prodding to reinsert it in a way so it stands up. At the moment, it's in a plastic bag and quite transportable. I use pins to keep the weight from pulling the wig off.

The wire method seems really fragile to me, and as I am always tripping, I feel like it would break my first time wearing it.
Thanks to everyone that responded. I think I'm going to try stiff felt and a purse snap!

Well, the only thing my ahoge has so far is thin cracks (which I glue back together). I do try to be careful but it remains that I'm still a clutz and bang my head on things (it's disorienting when you're 'taller' than you were) and I haven't gotten that much trouble from it. I used pretty thick wire? Oh, though if you're going to try stiff felt and a purse snap, I would be interested in seeing how that turns out. :))

I used the wire method, implanting it in some heavily glued fiber. I used pretty thin wire, and its held up even though I've put it on and removed it from the wig a few times now. For transport I just removed it from the wig and sandwiched it between two pieces of cardboard to keep it flat.



I also referenced how they did the yellow parts in this wig, to get the sharp angle of Pikos ahoge
