    I searched the shit out of these forums, nothing on this.

    I bought a forehead protector, the quality seems to be very good although the metal plate seems ever so slightly oversized? No big deal at all though.

    But, I can't figure out the most efficient way to wear it. It's this type:


    I tried folding and such and even using paper clips to hold the folds together better but I just figured there would be a way to avoid this hassle, and that the design is as such for a reason.

    I know some of you guys have this model...any tips?

    The one I bought doesn't need to be folded, but I like yours better. Try folding the top center and bottom center sections towards each other a section at a time around the same thickness as the plate. Or you could wear it like a rag on your head. . . . .

    If you want the traditonnal style, I suggest you try to follow the folds that seem to be there already ( I think I see some under the metal plate.)

    Or, you could try folding it in two, into a triangle, and wearing it ala Ebisu, tying 3 ends at the back. That would look cool too.

    Yeah, that's pretty much what I'm trying to avoid here.

    I have been folding it into the center, I guess that really is the best option. I'm afraid of it being a little dodgy with stuff wanting to come unfolded and all...

    I'm just curious as to what the manufacturer's intention was, I wouldn't imagine the bandana method being too popular at all.

    1) Chouji style
    2) Shikamaru style.

    The end.

    I don't think you can wear that like Chouji, it's not the right shape.

    You could just fold it until it's like Naruto's and then tie it like Jenga_Chan said, but I think that since it's basically a bandana with a forehead protector in the middle that you should wear it like a bandana, ala Ebisu

    AHAHAHAHAH WHOA MAN GOOD ONE

    Anyway I'm able to fold it well enough into the middle by now, seems to be sturdy enough, not that I'm even wearing this thing on a regular basis. Thanks for all the suggestions.

    Also did a cool variation on the T-shirt ninja, kinda like Hanzo from SamSho.

    Like that, then if you wanna wear it like Naruto's *and the rest*, then keep folding it, till it's not a triangle anymore. :blink I didn't understand what I typed, so I hope you did.

    Or...You could wear it on backwards in it's triangle form. Just like Genma. Or you know what? Put it around your neck.

    You can wear it on your arm, leg and so and so on.
    Or you can wear it like Akadou Yoroi or Hayate.

    Holy crap that looks like a nice one! i got a cheaper one, but I got it because the metal part is the perfect size and the sand symbol is proper like in the anime. Some of the headband makers made the sand symbol different with rounder edges sometimes, but this one was proper.

    I would have to say this more like a body one. I was also thinking the arm or neck or somethin along those lines. There are a few other places you could wear it where it would still be visible but im not sure just how it'd work out. Depends on what you wearing with it as well because it could be part of the costume itself. Like for instance if you were to wear it with some kind of weapon of the sholder then maybe it could attach to the strap that holds it in place(assuming this is strictly for cosplay). In the end though its gonna be your call...whateva you chose show us pics when you've decided.
