Metal Netting for Pyramid Head?

Basically constructing a pyramid head outfit. It's mostly done, just need more drydex and spray paint, and to put the metal netting he has at the sides of his head, like he has here.

http://www.peeranswers.com/forums/img.cgi?i=101141

I bought something to use for it that I found at a craft store, but it was too short. I'd prefer to use just one sheet to cover the entire side, rather than having to cut it in bits, since it looks a lot more tacky like that.

Any thoughts? I tried looking at lowes, but the store's so big, couldn't find it even if its there, maybe if I knew a actual brand name or what it's actually called?

I tried using mesh fabric originally but it's just way too floppy, making it hard to put on, and look pretty bad. I don't mind spending a extra buck. Basically, think window screen netting but metal?

Yeah, if you go to the hardware store and just ask an associate for 1/4'' wire mesh sheet, they'll set you up. It's often in the gardening department. You'll still have to do a little cutting, but nothing unreasonable. Cheap tin-snips work great, and watch those sharp pointy edges!

Mesh sheet or chicken coop wiring..personally I've never used it but this would be best. However the coop wiring tends to bend and crease very easily if you're looking for a more flat straight type you can curve I suggest the Mesh sheets..

Also, large window sheets/nets are good xD they have those form 5-100$ depending on size.

You can typically get plastic and metal mesh sheeting (typically rolls) in with the screen door/window repair stuff.
