http://www.nicodemus.org/fursuit/foamhead.php - Here, Panda-San! ^^ This site is GREAT if you're trying to do a mascot style costume! This page link is to the Carved Foam Head section - Go to the "Design" Bar at the top of the page and find other methods of "Head Designing"

http://dizzy.mountainkitty.com/costume/notes.html - A bit of tips on how to make a head another way besides using Foam

 http://www.fursuit.org/faq/ - I just found this! XD Wow!

 http://www.fursuit.org/faq/09headfr.htm#9.2 - You mentioned you had problems putting "cloth" on the head you're trying to make - This info is for fur-laying, and if it helps.. ^^

 What are you planning to be, Panda-San?

 Oh, I hope this all helps you, by the way! =D

What is?

What is it exactly that you are creating, Panda?  Is the foam a stuffing for something that you're sewing, or are you making something out of foam that then needs to have the fabric glued to it afterwards?

I just searched for who was the Kon cosplayer if that helps.

Their username is Emerald but I'm not sure if they've been on the forum recently.

Reminds me of the time I was at a thrift store and I saw a little girl trying to reach a top shelf ware they was a foot long unicorn by Imperial toys.  She would stare at it then try to reach it, then stare at it again.   she tried and treid to reach it and when she left I assume to get her mom I grabed it and ran to the check out.  


I so bad, but now my Eowyn figure rides a Rare colectable Imperial Unicorn I got for 50 cents.


And the links Catgirl Rin Rin posted look like a great resource to make one with the materials that are avalable to most peaple.  Next time I get a large hunk of foam I  may try a foam head just to see if I can

I have found that for most costuming and re enactment projects some one some ware has some real good sources on the net.   One of my first costume commissions was to make 2 sets of roman Armour in leather.   I was the patch boy at a shoe shop and some one called about some repairs on leather accessories for their Easter play and asked if I knew any one who could make the Armour.  The customer did not hear me say no and later that night I got to thinking and I did about 4 hours of research on the net and was amazed at all the information I found.  That Monday when he came in I had a folder of printouts, books and a tiny demo model made of cardboard.  He had not heard me say no and thought I knew what I was doing all along and I made a deal that was $700
