    Heyyyy, I'm new here and this is my first post, so if for some reason this is in the wrong place, I'm very sorry, but I'm look for some suggestions as to how to go about making Togruta or Twi'lek headpieces.

    I've "finished" making an Ashara Zavros cosplay, but I'm unhappy with the headpiece, as it was really difficult to go about making, and turned out pricier [due to me just trying to finish it quickly rather than taking my time and fully planning the piece] and not as "perfect" as I would like it.


    You can see how the bottom is bumpy, and it's a bit to stiff than what I would like it to be.

    I've looking into alot of different ways people go about making Togruta or Twi'lek headpieces [mostly Twi'lek], and most are fabric construction and stuffing [of which I actually ended up doing a bit of for my Ashara piece]. Problem I have with that is I don't want a seam, and I don't want a fabric texture. I found another tutorial to make as a latex prosthetic, but it required plaster mold work, and I didn't know exactly how I would do that for a Togruta headpiece [I'm guessing a 3-part mold], seeing how I have very little molding experience.

    I can sew very well, was thinking maybe making the piece again out of fabric, and putting spiraled wire in it to maintain it's shape and still allow it to move pretty freely, but I still don't want a seam or fabric texture.

    Any ideas or suggestions about how to go about making a decent "real looking" Togruta headpiece?
