Head Ornaments.

Hello there,

And before we say anything else, I did do some research and Searched the forums and thread to find it, and I did not find anything that really helped me.

I will admit, I am pretty lazy about this, and trying to find as much help as possible so I can get this right on the first run through. :P

So I am cosplaying Kurogane from TSUBASA RESEVRoir CHRoNiCLe and He has this headpiece (I will link to some images below.) I was thinking on how to do it so it would fit my face and it would not be too big and yet not too small...you know...perfect. :P

If you have any suggestions, please go right ahead and tell me.

Hope that helps. Thanks in advance.

Thanks for the well-formed question.

For something like that, I think that WonderFlex or Craft Foam would suit your purposes best. It's a simple curve, so what you would do is cut the shape out, curve it, and then strengthen/smooth/paint it as you see fit.

If you want to make the moon and holes (are they holes?) look kind like they're embossed in there, you could simply make two layers. Curve them first, then cut them out. If you bend them first, it assures that they'll line up when placed on top of each other. It makes accurate cuts trickier, but you could make a paper template to guide yourself. After they're cut, set them apart. Paint the bottom one black, cut out parts of the top one and paint it red. Attach them with some glue, and you're set.

Should work out, let's see what other have to say.

I would just cut out the red part from craft foam and attach a black piece of elastic on the edges to hold it to your head. Then paint or just cut out and glue on the moon and holes.

Easy :3
