About this Costume
- Construction Details:
The horns are the main feature of this costume. I first carved them out of floral foam, then covered them in masking tape, then model magic. After that I let the model magic dry, sanded it, and coated any cracks in spackling. I then sanded that as well, painted, and sealed with resin. The mistake I made here was not covering the entire horn in white paint before sealing. The resin made the colors pop, but also made before unseen cracks stand out due to very small color shifts between the spackling and the model magic.
They are attached to my head through industrial wire wrapped around a headband hidden underneath the wig. Attachment was a hard issue and these horns are permanently attached to this wig.
The shirt is hand painted and so is the armband.
- Personal Thoughts:
- This costume was one that I wanted to do for a while but never got around to until I had a group for it. The horns were a special challenge that ive learned from, as all I had done previously were small horn projects.

- Styling Notes
- I added layers to the top of this wig in an attempt to style a mohawk, which I managed, but was displeased with the resulting look. I brushed it out and washed it and it ended up giving me a shaggy look that I actually rather enjoyed for the character.
