These horns can be worn a number of different ways; some examples are shown in the photos! They can be attached to a headband to be used as actual horns, or added to other costume pieces (such as fantasy weapons or pauldron armor) as accessories. They can also be used in other crafts, fantasy taxidermy, or anything else you can think of.
These horns are cast in impact-resistant, white-colored resin, a type of casting plastic. Once de-molded, I remove any flashing from the molding process and sand the edges smooth.
I sculpted the original horns from oil-based clay based on my own design, and then made a silicone mold of the sculpture. While I don't recommend treating them roughly, these tough resin pieces are much more likely to bounce than break if dropped!
Blank Mask/Prop FAQ
Do your mask and prop blanks come with instructions? What kinds of paints/glues work best with them?
I send a guide along with each purchase with tips on how to paint your mask or prop, what kinds of glues to use, and more. The two general guides can be viewed below, but some masks kits also have a more specific guide of their own.
Do you do costume commissions or custom masks?
I'm sorry, but my schedule doesn't allow time for me to take commissions or custom projects, including custom paint jobs. I am happy to take suggestions, but I cannot guarantee what you're looking for is something I will end up making.
I recommend checking out the Cosplay Commissions group on Facebook - You can request quotes on costume pieces you're looking to have made, and it's a very active group. It's a closed group, but if you hit the Join button one of the admins will let you in.
Will you attach a strap to a mask blank for me?
It's best to paint your mask prior to attaching the strap, so I don't offer them with the straps already installed. The strap just gets in the way during the painting process, especially priming.
Can you make lower jaws for your skull masks?
Masks with attached lower jaws or moving jaws must be made to accommodate them from the start, such as my lizardman masks. My skull masks and other half-face masks are meant to be worn as masquerade-style masks and are not set up for having a moving or attached lower jaw.
Can I attach horns (or other items) to my skin with spirit gum?
My cast resin horns, fangs, and other such items are meant as embellishments for props or masks, and weren't made with the intention to be attached directly to skin as a prosthetic. It may be possible to apply some of the lighter pieces to the skin with spirit gum, but I have not tried this and can't guarantee the results.
