Okay so I have made my ears! The only problem is, I can't figure out how to attach them! While they're not heavy, they're still not easy light. I can't use a headband as it won't fit over the wig and doesn't reach far enough, clips don't hold them up either. I want to avoid sticking them directly to my goggles as I won't be able to cosplay dark jak with the same goggles. Could anyone help?

Made from 2 layers of craft foam, hot glue and model magic to smooth the edges. They look super lumpy but I couldn't really fix that oh well.

Nice ears Smile

Could they be attached with some stiff wire that comes out of the base of ear and then goes up under or into the wig?
Probably need at least two pieces of wire spaced apart to prevent rotation.
A hair clip or similar might need to be used to stop wire shifting or sliding out of the wig.

Yess almost there!!
Thanks for the wire idea, I got so confused trying to think it out. But then I just realised...why don't I glue them into the wig? I'm only ever using it for jak. I put craft foam underneath and hot glued them on the foam from the right side. Pretty sturdy! But yeah I hope they don't fall off...taking a hot glue gun to geddon just in case.
Can't do dark jak anymore without making another goggle headband thing. I glued it to the wig : D
Spoiler:
 

Left to do:
Red scarf
finish off gloves (so badly sewn rahhhh)
leg straps
boot covers/leg things
I'm not very happy with the shoulder pauldron thing, I'll remake it after geddon. A few details are missing on what I have already but oh well. Too stressed by art and photography boards to care :'D

Ughhh here we go, the most unflattering dress in existence!
The only reason I bought this pattern was because of the flowy part at the bottom, and damn it is flowy but it was so hard to sew and the shape of the whole dress is pretty unflattering.
I've drawn on what I want to do to it next.
Collar, cut up and dye(maybe) lil sleeves.

Add some kind of little stuff around the waistline to look a bit like frog skin. (she is part frog)
This material is also a nightmare, the seams won't iron flat so watch out for me I'm a big wrinkly mess!

And here's my awful attempt! I'm well aware of the inaccurate construction and general terribleness but whatever! I'm not going for craftmanship c; (not even entering this thing in anything it's okay)

Wig needs extra curl, vest thing hemmed and I'm pretty sure there are other things! I'm wearing this to Wellygeddon along with Koujaku and Ned the piemaker. I'll upload a picture of my fake pie soon
