Chicken wire
Hello all!
I was wondering if someone could answer a question on the use of chicken wire, I've never used it before and when it is meant to be used.

Sorry the image is a little fuzzy. Basically I'm wondering what is best to use for supporting those snakes on the back. I'm planning on stuffing them so they're firm and durable but the wire I have at the moment isn't particularly strong, and need something that won't be drooping during the day. Is chicken wire the right thing to use here?
Also, would you say it is best to attach the snakes to the top or the bottom of the skirt? I'm just wondering if they may pull the top down at the back. Thanks for your help!

I've used thick garden wire in place of chicken wire before and that worked for me.

persaonlly i find wire mesh stronger than chicken wire, chicken wire obviously has big circle like hexagon wholes, wire mesh has smaller rectangle wholes. i used it for my kanetsugu helmet sophie which if you shout me on msn ill show u pics of it in progres from a wire base ^_^
