---HOW TO MAKE THE HEAD FORM:
~ inflate a balloon (take one with a circular form) bigger than your head (für deutsche bastler: OBI baumarkt hat voll toll runde werbeballons)
~ laminate it with pieces of newspaper and wallpaper glue (about 4 layers)
~ let it dry (about 2 days)
~ than deflate the balloon (be carefull)
~ DONE with the basic form (hardened paper) - now you can work with it
~ attach sponges or something like that inside the head (your head has to be fit in perfect - so when you turn your head the paper head will follow the movement)
simple, cheap, easy to make and easy to wear
(i'll make a tutorial one of these days...)
