Horned Headband Tutorial | Cosplay & Costuming

How to make a horned headband. Subscribe to BlessedShadows on YouTube!

Take thin Horns, add some sturdiness, and attach to a headband in this tutorial for a devilishly good costume. 😈


Tools and supplies:
-Horns
-Felt
-Scissors
-E6000
-Extra, used shopping bags
-Boxcutter
-Hot glue gun and hot glue sticks *be careful not to melt the E6000.

Directions 🦇😈

  1. Cut and remove elastic if there is any. You can save these for later projects.
  2. Note how thin the horns may be. If they’re really flimsy, let’s fix that!
  3. Use a box cutter or similar blade to carefully cut an X on the bottom of the horns.
  4. Cut old, extra shipping bags into 3rds or smaller, and begin stuffing inside the horns. Full all the way to the top so the horns will be firm evenly.
  5. Cut circles out of felt and adhere with E6000. I’ve had little luck with rubber and hot glue, especially when it comes to the task of joining.
  6. Let dry.
  7. Use hot glue to adhere horns to the proper/desired spot on the headband. Hold and let glue cool.
    Use E6000 instead if you’d prefer.
  8. You’re done!
    Add some extras to your headband if you wish, and go be your devilish self 😈

A new year will bring new shoots in the studio, but there are still a few nudes and boudoir portraits from the last set!

 

Lots of red in the portraits lately, and I’m excited to get more blues and silvers in the studio!

Reds are passion, blues… thoughtfulness and mystery, silver is strength and uniqueness.

The colors we use in our art are to not only inspire, but to carry across a mood.  What mood are we feeling?

 

What would you like to see more of? What colors stir your soul and inspire your heart?

~~ Another year in the studio comes to a close! ~~

What demons have you slayed this year?  Made peace with?

What are you going to tackle in 2020?

 

This past year brought great strides in self-love and body-positivity, indispensable to any artist and lover of life, and definitely necessary for myself as a genderqueer soul.

It also saw the start of several businesses, practices and passions, because WHY WAIT?

 

The new year in the photo studio is going to bring even more handmade couture, portraits, makeup and artistry.

 

Who’s excited for the new year?

This is often the time of year that’s the hardest.

The sky is dark, the weather is cold, energy drops, and the holidays are in the air.  It’s often a heavy season that could benefit from more kindness, love, and creation.

 

But as much as we try to keep creating, being the best, and on be one the move every moment of the day, we need to remember to rest.

The harder seasons are possibly the best times of year for us to relearn how to slow down.

 

How do you keep your spiritual creativity going?

How do you push through the lulls in the season?

Sometimes what we love to see in studio isn’t something that works too well in the real world.

We love magic, odd styles and lots of lashes, but in the everyday, it’s a bit harder to manage.

The Blessed Shadows studio will soon be launching a new blog to help make makeup, fashion, and other forms of creativity more of a habit.

It’ll feature and encourage more frequent play, without the weight of a ‘full-on’ photoshoot.  Not every look needs a shoot with my best cameras.

 

Creativity is magic, even when it’s done on a more ‘casual’ basis.

 

If you have any suggestions for looks, costumes, ideas, etc, or even cheaper phones with high camera quality to consider, I’d love to hear!

Let’s keep making creativity a habit, and keep weaving everyday magic into our lives.

These past few months have been full of changes here in the studio and in my personal life.

It’s becoming increasingly important to remember to take time to simplify.

 

The studio has become a hotbed for new creations and art, but that has lead to an influx in new supplies but also an imbalance in normal workflow.

It’s been ages since I’ve played with makeup or my cameras.

 

Sometimes we need a break, but sometimes we also need to recalibrate, simplify, and integrate new passions and interests with more forethought.

 

How do you balance all your interests and side-businesses?
