I finally got it finished! Yay!

I've been asked a few times how I made my Gumi headphones, but to be honest they were thrown together literally the night before with random materials I had lying around. And they were hideous.

So, I decided I would re-make some so they were easier to make and looked better. I made these for my friend ~pockami, who is an amazing Gumi / cosplayer in general!

By no means is this the best/only/easiest way to make these, this is just how I figured out to make them simple enough.

I really hope this is easy to understand. I tried to proof-read it but if there's any spelling errors etc please let me know XD

Also, if you don't understand any of it or have any questions please ask me and I am more than happy to help in anyway!

Hopefully this tutorial is of use to someone! :D
Please feel free to link me to any headphones you've made with this tutorial, I'd love to see ^___^

Edit: Just realised a price guide would help here. I can't remember exactly how much they cost to make but they were surprisingly cheap. I would estimate no more than $20-25AUD. (Cost may vary) //End Edit.

Where do I find these "Glitter Shapes" and what exactly are they?
RadClawedRaid's avatar
Essentially they're like a button, but a self adhesive dome kind of thing with glitter on them. I got mine from my local fabric/craft store. If you can't find anything, buttons (without visible holes) could probably work just the same :)

Question: where did you get the egg foams?
RadClawedRaid's avatar
My local fabric store (Spotlight) has a craft section, I got them from there. I'm unsure if you're local fabric store is like that too, if not any craft store should have them though ^_^

Thanks for your reply... we just got a craft store (Michael's) where I live so I might try there. There isn't a fabric store close to where I live but I haven't seen any foams in the ones I have been to... Thanks though! I'll keep looking!!
