    Making of merdmaid Sonico (silicone tail and extra's)

    Today I started on making my moulds for this new tail as I can't you hearts for this one. This time I cut circles out of 2mm craft foam with my die-cutting machine, glued a second piece of foam under the circles and covered it with worbla. I also made a mould for the star with worbla.

    So excited to see this tail cosplay; Sonico is one of my beloved waifus. Also, what an innovative way to make molds!

    I also casted the first star, they will be attached to the tail with very small (50mm across), but strong magnets.

    Thank you, MermaidMermeron
    Today I started working on the inside of my tail, glued the magnets on the right place with a special, very strong glue and sealed the front part with some more silicone:
