1st April 2013: Finished horns and progress on precursor orbs So here's the horns finally at a stage where I like the paint finish. You can also see how I'll be attaching them to my wig, progress on that will be shown in a few days hopefully. I like how they look like some alien shrimp creatures at the moment XD
And in the background are my precursor orbs in progress. Made out of polystyrene shaped eggs, I've had to carve the tops a bit rounder so they don't look so much like eggs and more like the orbs. But I'm not sure I like the finish on them yet, they are still looking quite rough even with plenty of layers of gesso. There's a fair few blemishes and dents in them but I have had them lying around for about a year and I did buy them from the bargain bin in Hobby Craft... SO we'll see if I still use them or try something else. I'm glad I've given myself a year to work on this cosplay, I actually have the time to try lots of things and can get it all looking how I want it.
