Things that amuse me

22 years old. Artsy, introverted, nerdy, easily amused. I'm a girl with a lot of varying interests that will pop up on this blog- hair care, skin care, knitting, kitties, dog training, coconut oil, cosplay, FF8, feminism, baking, cooking, Doctor Who, the Avatar series, Supernatural- all sorts of things!
I don't follow back unless I like your stuff.

One horn work-in-progress for my faun costume for Gen Con Indy. I initially started making huge curling horns out of duct tape and newspaper as a base form, but then realized when all was said and done the horns would be way too heavy to wear comfortably. So I downsized quite a bit and now they only curl outwards at the tip (can’t really see it in the pic) and made the form out of floral foam. I don’t even want to know how many little particles I inhaled…I’m pretty pleased with the method so far. They’re a lot more light weight, but I’m worried that just the slightest hit to them will cause them to snap, even when I’ve covered it with something like Mod Poge or something, so I’ll do my homework and see what will make them super strong but still lightweight.I overestimated how much foam I’d need and got two packs when both horns could be made with one. So hopefully I’ll be able to make a second pair of another variety of horns :] I’m mulling over challenging myself with Lesser Kudu horns to see if I can pull off the twisting. But with school starting soon, we’ll have to see.
