Hello, been lurking for a few months, taking in info and getting inspiration from a few suits. However, all the places I can find foam charges an arm and a leg, and, while apparently some people have no problems using balaclava-style heads with their glasses, I'm thinking I might have some trouble. Therefore, I want to ask, how good are paper mache heads? I've seen a few of them around, and they look really well-done for the most part, but I'm wondering about how durable they are. Especially since the fursuit I'm thinking of making is a jackalope, and it needs to be able to support antlers.
Also, any tips for making a paper mache head will be greatly appreciated, such as what sort of glue to use, how to make a moving jaw for it (would it be too different than that of a mesh head?) and so on and so forth. Thanks muchly, everyone!
