Instead of covering it with carboard in step four, I made my horn a bit longer so i used a blanket stitch to close the red around the headband, then secured it with tacky glue.

Hey no problem!! I wish you luck at your con (and p.s. the horns double as pillows depending on size, haha) xD

this is really interesting because a while ago I was trying to make this nepeta hat and instead of making horns out of clay and cutting holes in the hat I wanted to make plush horns and just pin them on (so the hat can be used as human stuck as well) but i looked around and couldn't find any tutorials for some reason?? anyways I ended up doing a LOT of math to figure out how to make these goddanng horns and it was hard and I wish I had found this earlier ^^

Why do you need four of each section? I'd think that you'd only need two... unless there's something I missed here, lol xD

Sorry for the late reply! You would need 4 horn pieces, or 2 for each horn (front and back) :)

Would this still work for rather big  horns, like Summoner size or something like that? I am working on making my fantroll into a costume, but her horns are rather big and are way too heavy to stay on my head when I have tried other methods ;w;

I have never tried horns larger than the picture, but I think its is worth a shot. If you do, definitely use a headband and make sure it is wide enough for you to attach the horns :) I would look into some lightweight stuffing too. I wish you luck and it would be awesome to see how they turn out!

This is really cool! And it's nice that you explained everything; even if people can sew really well, it's nice to have a reminder once in a while about what is what.
Sheets of felt cost $0.25? Man....were I live, it's $0.89 per sheet.

Hmmm I wonder why? Ours can get up to around 50 cents on a pricey day. Maybe its the store or method of distribution? I am glad you like my tutorial :3

Canadian prices are high, but I think it's because our dollar is high. Still, I would love to pay $0.50 a sheet. Save my poor wallet.

I actually made plush horns nearly the exact same way for a Vriska cosplay - the only difference was I actually put wire in the horns and left some coming out of the bottom of each side then put the wire through my wig and adjusted it to make sure I wasn't getting poked in the brain or anything by the wire. It was super comfy, the horns didn't tip over because the wire was sandwiched between my head and the wig well and because it was super light weight, and people really liked them. ( [link] here's the best picture I have of me in them)

BaileyNickerson Featured By Owner May 8, 2013  Student General Artist
Wow nicely done! I agree, if you're wearing a wig, the wires must have been very helpful. The only problem with having the horns separate on hair clips, for me, wasa making sure they weren't crooked, haha xD

After the first day of the con (since mine were also separate), I didn't even care anymore about how my horns were sitting but the first day was full of fiddling with them in the mirror and repositioning them and stuff. I guess after a little while you stop caring so much about how you look.
