Hatsune Miku Magnet Headphones. . .Convention Sized :)

Hey guys! So here's my tutorial for convention sized Magnet Miku headphones. These will be a lot less bulky and will be easier to keep on. Hence why they are called convention sized. ^w^ They're also a bit easier to make and you don't need as many materials as the full sized set. It's essentially just smaller and there's no headband. :) So please enjoy this awesome tutorial!

STEP 1: Reference Picture! XD

STEP 2: Gathering Materials:

  • Templates (see the other headphone tutorial for templates)
  • Craft knife or sharp pocket knife (optional)
  • Hot pink card stock or craft foam (they can actually be any color that you want and/or have if you follow my version, here is the link: Magnet Headphone Tutorial)
  • Elmer's liquid glue
  • Scissors
  • A stack of heavy books
  • A flat surface
  • Hot glue and gun
  • Random scratch paper
  • Two alligator hair clips
STEP 3: First print out your templates. They can be as big or small as you want/need. Make them so that they are about half to three quarters the size of the original headphones. Then cut them out and line them up so that you can see if they are proportionate to each other, trim them down if you need to. :) Next you can cut out the designs inside of the butterfly templates with the craft/pocket knife. You can do that or just color the designs whatever color you want them to be.

STEP 4: Now you'll smear glue on the back of the butterfly template and glue it to the card stock/craft foam then glue the earphone template to the butterfly template. You'll want to place a paper on top of it so that when you put the stack of books on top, so you won't glue the paper to your books. ^^;

STEP 5: When the glue is completely dry take off the stack of books and glue the Alligator hair clips to the backs so that when you clip them onto your hair/wig they will be in the right place over your ear.

Yey! Now you're done! ^w^ I wore mine to Anime Banzai 2013 and I can say with complete confidence that I am very happy, and I mean VERY happy, that I had made a smaller version of the Magnet headphones for the con. :) So if you're planning a Magnet cosplay for a con I would recommend that you either buy the headphones or you make a pair of these. :) So yeah! Well Happy Cosplaying! XD
