Sweetums: Start to Finish
I won't bore you with step by step details. In a nutshell I made a chickenwire form and wrapped it in masking and duct tape. I avoided paper mache because I wanted to keep it as light as possible. After that I glued the faux fur on using "sandblast filler". Actually used that stuff to adhere everything on it. Industrial strength bond. Eye were balls I found at Toys-R-Us... eyebrows a black feather boa, etc., etc. Used a bicycle helmet and cardboard tubes to make the structure that allowed me to wear it comfortably. that's the gist of it anyway.
