[FONT="Georgia"]Hello~! I'm in need of some recommendations on how to do Sakura's necklace, or choker. I don't know what to really call it, sadly, but I'm trying to figure out what to do for it.

Here are a few pictures (sorry they're not the best) :

It's more like a gold color, so I apologize for that. >__<;

Any suggestions?[/FONT]

Well for that necklace you can use almost any material to make though...
but I would recommend foam materials x.x

What about trying Sculpey clay? It'll be lightweight enough, and you can gloss it easily.

I've heard that would work best, but I'm unsure of how I'd get it on and off myself and how much is sculpey clay as well? :) [/FONT]

Sclupy clays is pretty inexpensive, and you can get it already in gold, you would just have to get a gloss sealer. To get it on and off though...that's the problem. You can't really flex sculpy all that much once it has been baked, so the only way to get it on and off would be to leave a gap in the back that you can slightly stretch to get it around your neck. That would leave you without a solid necklace, but it would be the only way to get it on without breaking the sculpy.

[FONT="Georgia"]I sort of was thinking that >__<;
There's a girl, [URL="http://www.cosplay.com/photo/1748329/"]this one right here[/URL], who has an amazing necklace and I'd love to ask how she did it it to!
Are there any other methods for getting the necklace done aside from clay?
The only other way is maybe gold fabric, [URL="http://www.cosplay.com/photo/3058030/"]like her's[/URL], but I wouldn't know what interior material to use. [/FONT]

For the fabric version you could use just about anything flexible from thick pipe cleaners to fiber fill. But if you really want one like the first person you linked, why not PM them and ask how it was made? At worst you never get a response, at best, you find out exactly what you need to know.

In a pinch you could use the inside of a cloth covered headband, the kind that have the colored knit cover. I got mine in the girls hair accessories section, took the cover off, used a hairdryer to bend it into a choker and painted it with acrylic paint.
