I have a friend who wants a Pikachu silly band (for those of you who don't know these are: http://www.sillybandz.com/) as this would just about complete her life. But alas, they do not exist. Since Christmas is coming up I was hoping I could make her a pikachu silly band. My two thoughts on how to do this are:
1) Buy a bunch of silly bands and cut them up and piece together the parts into a pikachu shape,then either melt or glue them together.
2) Acquire a piece of stretchy plastic of a similar material to silly bandz and cut the shape out.
It would have to be maybe 4 by 4 inches at least, and stretchy. I just can't think of what I could possibly use. This is where you come in. Do you know of any stretchy sheet of material that would be suitable? If so,where can I get it? and if not, do you think melting silly bandz together would work? I was thinking I could heat the two ends with a lighter, stick them together and sort of squish the ends with my fingers, like how one would put a polyurethane bracelet on? And if this doesn't work, what kind of glue would you suggest?
Thank you!!

The only thing that comes to mind is getting some rubber sheeting from a hardware store and cutting the shape from that. Don't know how well it would work though.
