We’ve had quite a few of you writing in to ask how we build horns and other such objects out of blue foam, so Angelus decided to prepare a short tutorial to help you guys out.
Building horns, just like the type Angelus has on her Alexstrasza costume is pretty easy, and takes only several minutes of quick work to do.
Stuff you’ll need:
1. Some foam scraps
2. A pair of sharp nosed scissors
3. Contact glue
Pick out some scraps of foam (or cut up a fresh sheet, if you like), and trim to size.
You’ll want to create several slices, which are in the approximate shape of the horn you intend to create.
Paste the slices together with contact glue.
Next, using a pair of sharp nosed scissors, make cuts and incisions to create the horn structure.
Once you’ve got the desired horn shape, you can start priming, sanding and painting the foam horn, just as you would a piece of armor. You could even wrap it with craft foam or any other material if you like.
What’s more, this method’s great for creating other irregularly shaped armor pieces, so experiment a little and you’ll discover for yourself just what you can do!
