    I kinda guessed you didn't have a 3D printer yet (most people don't). Seeing you do, your budget isn't quite such a stretch, but maybe $100 for just the mask would be a better investment. Some points:- 9 bucks for your "wig" is going to be a problem: You generally need 2-3 wigs to cover a kigu mask. And I wouldn't even trust one wig at that price point. I'd ballpark around $25-$50 here. Another thing easy to leave out here? Hairstyling supplies. Those alone could run over your $100 budget quite …

    Yeah I agree, you're missing a zero in your price goal.

    I got some answers for ya: Masks1. Vision can range from passable to abysmal. For mask interiors, google is your friend. To get a better idea on vision I tried to recreate what I see through one of my shells here: (Hidden Content) However, I think images like this actually make it look worse than it really is. Once you get used to it it's not that bad (just be careful where you're walking lol). This also varies a looot between masks. Hearing is kinda the same story but it's effected a lot less t…

    Quote from BritKig: “Quote from Hikari Kintsugi: “available free for hobbyists” It's only available for educational-establishment use sadly. Hobbyists doesn't come under that scope and get very little care from companies anyway.” That's not true, Fusion is free for hobbyists and "startups" (businesses with under 100k? profit). The option should be under the buy button on the activation screen. Also, none of the CAD programs Hikari mentioned are really comparable to Blender - You use CAD software…

    Printed paper is pretty much the standard for kig eyes. You cut holes in the paper to see out of, like this: (Hidden Content)

    Quote from BritKig: “do you think that multiple servers, set up with a similar objective in mind, will dilute content quality on those servers?” Nope. In fact I think the quality would go up since people not interested in the content on server X will hop over to server Y and vice versa. Quote from BritKig: “Another thought that came up was that wouldn't non-use of the same, consistent name across platforms, assuming that NekoNico's server is the official KigurumiOnline server since its the other…

    Quote from Hikari Kintsugi: “Here's hoping it all goes smoothly. With a build volume that large you're probably going to have to be carefull with keeping the bed level and stopping the print from detaching before it's finished, but it'll make finishing masks so much easier if they don't have to be cut to pieces to print them. Given your experience with CNC machines it seems like the best choice of printer. It looks like that model uses the same extruder drive gear as the wanhao duplicator, if th…

    The good news is that mask prices are slowly inching down. There's quite a few makers with offerings below $400 as seen on this list. If you're just wanting to get up and going, I'd avoid making on your own unless you have a reason to - plans to make unusual characters (which might cost a small fortune to order), many characters, or just like doing things yourself. While I wouldn't consider the job particularly hard, it can be quite time consuming and the cost of supplies will probably eclipse t…

    Nice to see another 3D printer in the community, can't get enough of them. Also, I happen to have 3D printed a mask, do blender modelling and have a thing for animatronics/robotics - If you're trying to learn blender I might be able to help a little bit. Good luck, and happy printing!

    In my experience, 'doller' seems to be completely unused in the Western community as of now. Kigurumi is the de-facto term for our costumes in English, despite it only meaning "mascot" - "animegao kigurumi" simply got cut down over time. Kigurumi is further cut down to kigu or 'kig' in colloquial use. The term "animegao" really only gets used when there's a need to differentiate from the pajamas that have also acquired the name kigurumi.

    Quote from Dottore: “Are there male characters? Okay, like I said, I haven't been looking for long, but I have yet to see a male character. Could be I just haven't looked well or long enough. Are all the characters based upon established characters from anime? Or can performers create their own? I haven't sat down and watched much anime as of yet, but I'm working on it. My friend suggested one called Madoka Magica (spelling?) and I have it queued up on Netflix...just need to watch it.” If you ha…

    This site supports standard BBCode, so you can change the color by typing: [color=#00000]your text [/color]. replace 000000 with the hex-code for your color. Keep in mind that this site has both dark and light themes, so pick a color readable on both.

    I recommend staying away from those listings on Aliexpress. There are some legit vendors there, but often the pictures are stolen. "Silicone Rubber" in the title is an instant red flag, as almost no kigurumi mask is made out of silicone (including the one in the pictures!). Someone transformed a gurglelove mask into a male with fair success, and if the character is younger/larger-faced using a female base is a viable option. Of course, there's always the world of DIY if those don't satisfy. Nice…

    Sizing really shouldn't be too big of a deal, just make a wild ass guess and err on the large side (a big mask is totally usable while a small one is garbage). ~25cm in height seems to be a good start. We could, in theory, get a "perfect" size proportional to the original character art as follows: - take your reference image and measure from the lowest point of the head up to the top of the head (CH), then from the lowest point of the head (CB). Next, take a measurement of yourself from the floo…

    Quote from BritKig: “I am close to giving up due to Linux's highly-unfriendly naming conventions” I don't blame you, but you'll learn. For your simple project I'd just use python since there's libraries that encapsulate the gpio pins (among other things), and you don't really have to mess with the linux underpinnings much at all. Quote from BritKig: “the inability to create custom OS images that only contain what's required for finished projects.” Actually, you can just make a backup of your SD …

    I see a couple problems:1. It's just too narrow. Kigu heads for your type of character should be almost square. 2. The corners are too soft and rounded, which makes it look a bit like an alien. Notice how in the (your?) drawings, her cheek/jaw structure is made up of almost straight lines with relatively small and sharp corners. It's more square than round. A picture's worth a thousand words, so here's a quick mockup I've made to give an idea: (Hidden Content) Besides this, you're doing great - …
