Neko Ears
Hi guys

I'm working on updating my Neko garb as a little project right now to keep me sane whilst between jobs.

What i do have is some black faux fur, and some "anime skin tone" coloured funky foam.

I have an idea on how to do this, but i'm wondering if anyone has any suggestions? I'm going for a fairly 'chunky' look on them.

Thanks for any help =)

I've made a couple of animal ears. Chiiko was very simple - ear shapped bit of high density foam, cover it in fur, stick it to hairband, but it worked for an SD charecter.

Kirara's ears came out quite well, so you might be able to use something similar. Make a sort of flame shape from the foam (like a oval, but long and tapered at the top.) Back with fur and then fold down the middle and stick the bottom edge to itself. You are left with a sort of 3d cat ear, hopefully. You can fold the foam before you attach the fur to see what shape you're going to get, and then cut it to suit your needs (Kirara's quite long and narrow).

I'll try adn put a picture up so you can see what the hell I'm talking about

that sounds quite an good idea actually, i think i've got the jist of what you're saying in terms of the fold..

/|\ <- The middle line would be the fold in the card, right?

Just need to get the card then i can go crazy with the glue gun XD

Yeah. I re-read what I posted and realised it didn't make an awful lot of sense

Still good luck and go crazy with the gluegun (though not all over your hands as I often tend to do )
