I've made a tutorial for how to make a Vocaloid headset. Feel free to use it. If there are any other tutorials that you'd like to see, let me know and I'll see what can do! <3

EDIT: I've decided to include Frequently Asked Questions in this description since I've gotten so many of the same questions. ^^ I'll add more questions as they come up. Hopefully this will help clear things up. If you ask a question that is in the FAQ's area, I'll be less likely to answer. Sorry. :<

SECOND EDIT: :iconjustacosplayer: suggested putting a glow-in-the-dark paint on the yellow and blue foam to make it glow. I think it's a good idea and definitely worth a shot! :D

FAQ:

Q.: How are the ear pieces attached to the headband?
A.: I made a small indent into the ear pieces. Then, I put a heavy duty glue (like E-6000 or Liquid Fusion) into the indent and pressed the headband into it. I held it there until it held on its own (about 30 minutes); then, I let it fully cure, which took about 24 hours.

Q.: How did you make your bow?
A.: I now have a tutorial for that as well! : D [link]

Q.: How did you attach the bow to the headset?
A.: The headset and the bow are actually 100% separate. In all the official reference picture I had come across, the bow is actually slightly behind the headset, so I just bobby-pinned the bow in place behind the headset.

Q.: You made this tutorial for the twins' headsets. Can I use it for (insert other Vocaloid)? Or can you make a tutorial for (insert other Vocaloid)'s headset?
A.: I made this tutorial since I was already making the headset for Rin. While I'm sure you can use this tutorial as a basis for the other Vocaloids, I don't have any plans on making different tutorials for the different headsets.

Hope you enjoy! :D

How do you attach the mic to the earphones?
SailorAnime's avatar
You use the excess wire sticking out of the mic and stab it through the ear piece.

could you use modelling clay that goes in the oven instead of model magic?
SailorAnime's avatar
You might be able to, but I worry that it will end up being too heavy.
