tavros horns tutorial

anonymous asked:

How do you make your troll horns?

That depends!

horns like this are throwaway, I make them in less than a day for closet cosplays. They’re twisted up plastic grocery bags held in the proper shape with masking tape, then wrapped in yarn and painted!

these are what i actually wear to cons - they’re pieces of model magic that I twist up, bend into the proper shape, then paint and seal with clear spraypaint once they’re hardened!

Tavros Horns Tutorial!

first of all, you gonna need:

  • polystyrene
  • spackling (the thing you use to get texturized paintings)
  • yellow and red paint
  • sand paper
  • a large (black) tiara
  • two BIG ASS screws
  • hot glue
  • tape

get your ‘polystyrene’ (idk the common name of this), draw the shape of your horns and cut it out

after cut out and sand papered:

then you will cover it entirely with the 'clay’ (spackling), and paint it yellow!

wait for it to dry, now get a piece of the tape to keep apart the yellow part from the orange one (get the orange paint by mixing the yellow with a bit of red, its easier to get a nice tone then buying a whole thing of orange)

and remember to keep the 'glue side’ UP! so it dont ruin your beautiful yellow painting

paint it orange an wait for it to dry (again), it will look like this without the tape:

do the saaaame thing with the red part, and as you can see i did the yellow ring by hand (but its just because i really like it this way)

in the end will look like this:

time to attach them!! get the tiara, make a whole where the screw will be (thats going in the middle of the horn) and between them fill it with hot glue, the horns are VERY light it doesn’t need too much effort to get them stable  

it may hurt a little after a long time but the wig protects your head (at least mine does)

thats it guys!! horns done! FLY PUPA, FLY!!!

you can ask my friends i hit pretty much everyone (and every door, every wall…) with my horns and it still hangin well! it takes time to get used with the space notion but you guys will do it well.


Hello everyone! Finally here we are with our special:


You’ll need:

  • Pool noodle;
  • Stylet;
  • Wire;
  • Hot glue;
  • Paper;
  • Adhesive tape; 
  • Hair band;
  • Yarn, and
  • Yellow, orange and red inks. 

First of all you’ll have to decide how long you want your horns to be. Then, cut the pool noodle in a diagonal way, (Images 1 and 2)

Take the wire and divide it in 6 pieces (we recommend you to do not use less than 6). Then, stick them in the pool noodle you’ve already cut and mold them like the point of a horn. (Images 3 and 4)

Use some hot glue to make sure they won’t fall! (Images 5 and 6)

Put all the wires together to make the tip and use again some hot glue to make sure they won’t separate anymore. (Image 7) 

Take the paper and go sober (honk) while you make some balls of paper. (Image 8)

Use the balls of paper you just made to fill the space among the wire. After you’ve done that, it is time to use the adhesive tape and wrap that structure to assure that everything will keep together. (Images 9, 10, 11 and 12)

You are almost finishing you Tavros’s horns! 

Now you’ll have to use some hot glue one more time. It will make sure that the yarn won’t go anywhere. Then, you have to roll your horn up with that until the end. (Don’t forget to use the glue again on the tip). (Images 13, 14, 15 and 16)

It’s the moment to release the artist you have inside your heart and paint your horn! When you finish this, you practically already have your horns done. (Images 17 and 18)

You’ll have to use the hot glue again. But now it is the final part, you just have to glue the horn on the hair band. (Image 19)

AND IT IS DONE! }:DD  (Image 20)

I hope it will help you and that you like it! Any questions, just contact me and I’ll try to clarify all your doubts! 

P.S: We weren’t using our cosplay because it was a rainy week day.

P.S 2: I have no idea why I am green on the last photo, what the hell?
