A set of two (2) solid, resin-cast angled spikes or horns to be used for your creature creations. They come in multiple sizes; please see the listing photographs and measurements to determine what size you need. The length is from the horn’s tip to the base along the longest edge.
The base of these spikes is angled so they come up from the base at about a 30 degree tilt rather than sticking straight out. These solid-cast pieces would make excellent embellishments for monster masks, spiky orc prop weapons or armor, fantasy taxidermy creations, or any other crafts that require some impossible creature bits.
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.
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.
Many of my pieces - mask blanks, horns, props, and other items - are made-to-order. When I receive an order for a made-to-order item, it goes in a queue to be cast, cleaned, and shipped in the order I received it.
Made-to-order items in the shop generally have a turnaround time of 14 business days (2 weeks). Some more complicated pieces, like the lizardman and turian mask kits, have a turnaround time of 21 business days (3 weeks).
A Rush Order upgrade is an additional fee added to all eligible made-to-order items in your shopping cart. When I receive a rush order, I complete that order outside of my normal working hours so as to send it out as quickly as possible.
How do I request a Rush Order?
Add the item or items you want to your Shopping Cart. If the order is eligible for Rush Order processing, you will see an Add Rush Order checkbox along with the price and processing time.
Please note that if I am already working on a rush order for another customer, the option will not be available. The nature of rush orders means that I can only realistically handle one at a time. Please check back the next business day.
How long does a Rush Order take?
Most Rush Orders ship within 2 business days, but some more complicated items take longer. You can see the processing time for your specific order next to the Add Rush Order checkbox in the Shopping Cart.
When you click Add Rush Order, your order total will be updated and the processing time will display the date by which your order will ship.
Please note - Adding Rush Order processing decreases the processing time, not the shipping time! Once shipped, USPS shipping times apply. USPS First Class may take up to 10 days, USPS Priority typically arrives in 1-3 days. DUE TO CUSTOMS PROCESSING, INTERNATIONAL ORDERS MAY TAKE UP TO 8 WEEKS REGARDLESS OF SHIPPING TYPE.
