I'm delighted to share these new sculptures with you after months of painstaking development! These beautifully crafted ears are the perfect addition to your Gadget cosplay, attending a fancy Beatrix Potter tea party, or reliving childhood magic as Mariel of Red Wall or a rat of NIMH.
These beautifully crafted and exquisitely detailed ears are cast from the lovingly sculpted idolatre originals, meticulously painted, and mounted on plush backed elastic straps. Strap size and ear position are all adjustable! These headbands would make a lovely and unique addition to a costume, or a delightful gift for a friend who loves woodland fantasy.
Available in a multitude of fur colors, or select CUSTOM and pick your own. Pictured in "White".
Please note that while the standard ear color is the pink shown I would be happy to do that portion in any preferred color scheme, at no additional cost. Please include the desired alternate color in the notes section of the order.

Everything I make is handmade from scratch. For real. Many horn sellers on Etsy purchase Party City horns to paint or modify into headpieces, but all of mine are made from the ground up. (If you'd like to see a direct comparison illustrating why handmade is so much better than re-purposed/revamped costume store pieces, check out this picture of a headdress I made when I was just getting into headdress making arts specifically in 2010 with purchased horns: https://www.etsy.com/listing/46369420/maenad-ram-horn-headdress?ref=shop_review vs this same headdress style with horns that were cast from my original sculptures: https://www.etsy.com/listing/60339371/maenad-ram-horn-headdress Way better, right? I thought so, too.)
Post casting there are a variety of tasks performed to ensure you get high quality pieces of art. First, all pour spouts and vents are delicately cut off the pieces. Then seams sanded, & small details replaced that may have been lost during the previous processes. Each piece is inspected for imperfections, and corrected with a dremel. If the pieces are to be mounted on a headband, oblong holes are removed from the base, & the openings are sanded to reduce elastic friction. If the pieces are scheduled to be painted, they would then be primed with a spray primer for best paint adhesion, then coated with acrylic spray paint for their base coat. After 3-6 hours cure time for both spray steps, they are ready for hand painting & mounting. Whew!
I print all my shipping from Etsy directly, so this is not an option. I also will not undervalue a package being shipped internationally as I include insurance for the full value of the package contents. Even when marked as a gift, tariffs can still be charged when it is opened and inspected by a customs officer at the border if it looks suspiciously like a purchase, which purchases usually do. I can be held responsible legally and FINED for lying on customs forms. The fines for these violations are huge, and I will not take that risk. Additionally, please note that I will not give refunds for items returned to me due to non-payment of import dues. Concerned?

I'm sorry, but I do not wholesale my resin components. I sell individual unfinished resin pieces as an egalitarian gesture to individuals who would not otherwise be able to afford a headdress so that they can still purchase something in their price range and create their own magic. Art is my full time job so I know all about wanting wonderful things that cost more than I can afford! It should go without saying, but: ITEMS PURCHASED MAY NOT BE REPLICATED WITHOUT SPECIFIC WRITTEN PERMISSION. NO EXCEPTIONS.
That said, I do offer wholesale discounts on completed headdresses purchased in quantity, so if you're doing a group cosplay, stocking your boutique, or outfitting your theater or dance troupe do not hesitate to ask!
Absolutely! I'm flattered you would want to use my art in the creation of your own. In fact, feel free to use the coupon code PHOTOSHOOT10 at checkout for 10% off your purchase.
Part of the hard work that goes into making visually compelling products is sourcing wonderful materials. This takes a lot of time and effort, and helps my items look unique. If I gave away the sources that I have worked hard to acquire, it would compromise the individualism of my shop. This is actually part of the reason I've evolved my store to make almost all my own components & findings- because if they are purchased from a vendor, people will find that vendor, then all of a sudden 40 copy shops pop up on Etsy attempting to make something suspiciously resembling your products. Needless to say, that it's more than disheartening when you work so hard to develop your own unique designs. So sorry, but I'm not sharing sources.
Nope! The horns and antlers are composed of Smooth Cast 300, a polyurethane resin. Not only that, but they're not cast from real horns or antlers, either. Which means that not only are they more balanced and far lighter weight for a human head/neck than their natural counterparts, they're also symmetrical little works of art for your head that are completely vegan from start to finish. Likewise with the fur- it's all high quality acrylic and animal free.
Sorry, all my prices reflect the time it takes for me to make the items and the cost of materials. This is more than an expensive hobby for me, this is how I make a living.
I'm afraid this is not a service I offer as the time to stage and take the shots is not included in the cost of the item.

These ears looked great, they fit comfortably on my head for many hours without needing constant adjusting, and they really help bring my Slitherin (Ratfolk) Dnd character Squeequeg "Knots" together.

It’s made with good materials and durable, but doesn’t look as realistic as the one in the picture, I chose a blond strap, and the one I received is basically white, so I’m going to have to cut and dye it and then re-attach it, or try to hide it as best as possible. So overall okay product, not worth $65+ $18 for shipping.
