    I’ve made a bunch of costumes over the years, and have had issues with the headpiece, always.

    One year, i did “Danger Mouse”, and the head was paper machie, with frisbees for ears. it worked well, but i could only see my feet.

    Another year, I did “Max” from Sam And Max. The ears were ribbed with garden hose. those were way too heavy. But for the head in general, I was looking through his mouth, which was made from that plastic canvas stuff you can find at hobby shops. it worked out really well. I also started the head on a base of a plastic hard hat from Home Depot. It cost $5, and was a great base to mount stuff on. It’s really easy to make holes in to affix things to it.

    What kind of paint did you use?  I’m trying to make this for my son.
    Thank you
