It all started because a friend of mine said I should wear horns and a halo at conventions, much like I do in the comic, when I’ve had a naughty thought or I’m executing a wicked deed. I thought that’d be pretty damn cool so I started looking for a pair of horns I’d like to wear, kicking myself for not buying the cute blue and black horns from the guy at the Renn Faire (to be fair, he was being a really aggressive salesman. He said I needed the horns to get good tips as a beer wench. I told him that’s why I had boobs. He said they were too small and needed to be fluffed up. No, really. He said my breasts were too small. >_<) And I couldn’t find a single damn pair I liked. Okay, okay. I only really looked at the local costume store and on ebay. But I still didn’t like any of them. And in my larp I’m playing a mystic woods elf – which means I wear pointed ears -and- horns. The Wonderful Mama Elf (from whom all goodness comes. <3) -gave- me a pair of latex horns to wear.. And they worked. They were too big to be cute for conventions, even if I painted them in slick and shiny colours, but they looked pretty spiffy for role-play purposes. And then one of them was lost, along with a single borrowed elf ear. T_T (Post teenager boys. They -bother- me so much!) So after much exhaustive searching I finally found a vendor selling horns I could kinda like to wear… But they’re waaaaaaaay vastly over-priced.
Not to be undone! I went forth to the store and I bought myself some sculpy clay and some elastic cord and I started thinkering. And I have my first pair of horns done. ^-^
They’re really simple, just something I was trying, but I’m all kinds of giddy about them. ^_^ I’m going to start making more and more, try some more complicated designs and more funky colouring. I can make an oodle of these and sell them at conventions. Maybe with a Devil Girl poster saying “Unleash Your Inner Devil!” or “Embrace Your Dark Side – She’s Got Cookies” $5 for simple single coloured ones, maybe $10 for the complicated ones. Yeeeessss.
Oh, and I can wear them. ^-^ Hurrah!
(And -damn-. I need to go wax my eyebrows.)
