YOU ARE A BEAUTIFUL SOUL. 8D

Just a question though, about how light are these? I need to build a pair of horns maybe 3x bigger than these, do you think they would get heavy? Also, how durable are they?
Thanks! :iconlarryplz:
SungHyul's avatar
pretty light and pretty durable. but it's not like, feather weight.
I used a heavyweight headband ;; it wouldn't really work on a thin little headband

sorry for the late reply, I rarely go on this dA anymore lol

Was wondering... will this method also work for Incubus Horns? (Was Blackmailed to cosplay as Ragnarok Online's Incubus...T_T)
SungHyul's avatar
Yes, it would work on most horns.. just that you'll have to shape it the way your character is ^^;
Hisoka23's avatar
hey, you're right does work on other horns. I just need to practice more on doing the papermache parts so that it looks more clean other being crumpled as well.^^

Thanks man^^
SungHyul's avatar
i'm glad it helped and worked out : ) and yes, mad skills are required to do this...

would oleo works too for painting it?
SungHyul's avatar
hmm, if you mean oil paint,(??) I am not sure, but I guess any paint would work fine if it can paint paper mache and/or tape. : )
I never tried oil because
1) it's a bit expensive for me
2) I thought it wouldbe shiny <

if it isn't oil... can you tell me what it is? ;A; I would be glad to help you ^^

sorry, i'm not good at english >-<
SungHyul's avatar
it's ok ~ well I guess you can : ) just watch out if the horn is too shiny!! : )

I LOVE YOU. THANK YOU SO MUCH. XD I was wondering how I'd make the horns! You're a lifesaver! :iconiloveyouplz:
SungHyul's avatar
I'm glad it helps you ;A; /
I would be looking forward of how it will look :'D

(and it would really suck if it looks better than mine)
KittyTaisho's avatar
I'm going to begin making them over the weekend (have to re-get some newspaper. =A= ) I'll be posting up a WIP pic of my TYL!Lambo soon after I make the horns. 8D

(too bad my shirt has too MANY spots) :iconorzplz:
SungHyul's avatar
it's ok mine has none.. it only has where the shirt is visible while wearing a jacket xD
KittyTaisho's avatar
Ah. XD Well, the horns are nearly done. I painted/made them today.. I just hope I did right with using paint like the kind they use for walls.. *couldn't find any other kind* :iconorzplz: LOL Yours look better though. XD I had only two pages of newspaper to use. I had to cut them in half to get eight semi-pages and worked with what I had. *epicly fails* :iconotlplz:
