Miku Hatsune | Headset “Behind-the-scenes”

Making the foam mic

Headset, foam, & scissors

I had lost the foam covering the headset originally came with, so I had to make my own.

So that’s it! This was most of the process that I went through when making the headset. Things that weren’t shown are the attaching of the covers to the headset. I used a skewer and some super glue to keep the covers in place on the headset. I also had to cut in a little notch at the top of both covers & one notch on one of the covers for the mic.

I’ll be editing the Gekokujou video right after I post this, so look forward to that!
