Posting this in this section since I see a SCANDAL cosplay thread here.

This whole thing started out as a joke in shoutbox. But after some discussion, Neil (zimbobbio) and I actually committed to this project almost 2 months before AM2 made the SCANDAL announcement official. This is a brief photo log of how we did it.

We used these tutorials to help get us started, but after a certain point it was mostly improvisation:

http://www.instructables.com/id/How-to-Create-an-Affordable-Mascot-Head/

CANTA!
Spoiler:

Reference Pictures:






Doing this with just a knife is really hard.

Gluing the pieces together.















Tucked the edges of the black fabric into the grooves to give the illusion that the face is popping out of the skull.







Foam started to turn yellow from leaving it out in the sun, so I glued some white polyester on before gluing the plush fabric on. It was also an attempt to hide the imperfections from my knife work.

Plush applied to top half only.
DORAEMON!
Not many pictures here, because we did a lot of the work literally less than 24 hours before Day 0.
Spoiler:

Neil used sandpaper and got a much smoother shape.

Sewing the seams together.



Everything but whiskers.
FINISHED!
Spoiler:

Finished products!

Customized autograph! And the girls patted my head as I went down the line lol.

My disaster room immediately before, during, and after AM2.

My room a few days after AM2 (finally).

Your "disaster" room seems a lot like how my room usually is 90% of the time. 8D

I'm rather tempted to try this out myself so if I ever decide to do it in the future, it might take a shorter amount of time since I did it once already. xD

Dude. We did it. Not much more needs to be said than that hahaha, no doubt the weekend would not have been possible or at all the same without your help

p.s. glad your room made a full recovery! Onion Wahaha

and the best end to the weekend regarding our mascot heads was how SCANDAL themselves called us KAWAII while having those unforgettable impressed looks on their faces! they even gave us a corresponding action, the whole big head - small body arm movements haha too awesome

@dummibears

the foam is actually pretty light. we just had to make sure the head space was large enough to breathe but small enough so that it doesn't wobble when moving around.
