What an adorable little monster you have!
My all time favorite gift for nieces, nephews, and baby showers. Babies and toddlers love them because they're warm and fluffy (and have plush horns). Adults love them because it makes tantrums 10% more hilarious (and they have plush horns). And if you love them but you don't have kids never fear- I also make them in adult sizes for those of us who have a good relationship with our inner child.
Hat is composed of faux fur with a safe velcro chin strap, warm polar fleece lining, and has two tiny horns with a little pair of monster ears lined with fleece.
Please specify curly ram horns or straight horns in your note to seller with purchase (pictured with straight horns), as your horn color preference from the following list: black, ivory, white, tan, brown, chocolate, scarlet, red, orange, ochre, yellow, mint, moss, forest, navy, blue, teal, sky, lavender, purple, royal, fuchsia, hot pink, or candyfloss. Swatch chart is available on the 4th listed image.
When in combination with a matching adult hat, this also makes a super cute (plus easy and comfortable) mom & baby Halloween costume:
Thanks for looking! <3
Model: My sweet nephew Ethan, and future super-star Holly A.

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.

Finally I received it and it is 2500 x more fabulous than on the photo. Everything is cute, the fur is so shiny and soft and I am in love with the little ears and horns! It is for a friend's baby and if the parents do not like it, I keep it for myself! All the details on and in the parcel are perfect too!

I will add a photo when our little guy is born and can wear it, but in the mean time I just had to say "THANK YOU!" This little monster hood is so freaking cute I can hardly stand it! It is made from great material and is warm enough that our little baby will be able to wear it all winter long! I would also like to add the GREAT customer service we received. The shop was out of the color I wanted and was so accommodating and made sure that we got the color we wanted and that we received our package when they told us we would!
