That Android 16 head is awesome, no idea how you made it but it's epic! All hail to the world champ!
Mr. Sat-Ash - 29th May 2015
Thanks, Matty. Sadly, I am nowhere near skilled enough to actually make the #16 head. I simply bought a mannequin head (that sort you use for putting hats or wigs on), massacred a Mohawk wig cap so as little of the "skin" part was left and so it was mostly just the hair, then stuck it on #16. If you look carefully at the head, you'll see how slipshod #16 really is. Like you can see the head's base, which I tried to disguise (and failed horribly).
Then I made some cosmetic changes, like colouring in the eyes to give them blue irises, some markings to make him look busted up (dunno what I was thinking, in putting blue pen marks on him... I guess maybe I thought it might look like bruising?), colouring round his eyebrows to make them look orange, and stuck two little rubber bands from I-don't-know what to his ears to look like his earrings.
Either way, thanks for your compliment. Considering how badly I went about my edits to the head, he actually turned out pretty well, and he's the majority of the reason why this cosplay's so popular, so it all works out.
