How to put on Pony Ears and Unicorn horn by bluepaws21 How to put on Pony Ears and Unicorn horn by bluepaws21
I decided to make this so every one could know how to put on pony ears and unicorn horns.
I asked my boyfriend to make ears for me since I wasn't happy with the ones out there and wanted them to look more like G4 ears. After a few tries at making clay ones he finally got them right! and I am so happy with them!!

So my boyfriend, Alex, made the ears out of clay, then made a mold of them and casted them out of resin. Then painted them.
I made the unicorn horn out of clay and he did the rest.
for sale at his etsy shop at
orihalcon2015.etsy.com
We will also be selling these at Everfree NW! and if we have any spares they will be for sale at Kumori!

if you have any questions please let me know (i'm not very good at making tutorials).

thanks, Dea

Oh thank you! I love your ears! I wish I was able to make a mold. I been trying to find ways to earn money for my Autsim Connection of South West Florida Group when I do vendors, but I have not a clue how to make a mold for like the pony ears from Friendship of Magic. I would love to buy one xD. But I do love your ears

I was wondering, the wig you were wearing in this photo, where did you get it?

it's just about the same thing, just much easier to fix your hair.

yes it's clear, you get it in the jewelry section, pictures width of string you can get. kind of hard to tie sometimes, got to really pull it tight!

Do you have to wear a wig to wear these?
Reply
:iconbluepaws21:
bluepaws21 Featured By Owner Nov 4, 2013  Hobbyist Artist
no not at all, it's just to show how to do it if you do wear a wig, but you can do it with natural hair too, i just didn't have good hair at the time.

Omg! they are so great. I can't wait to see them on when i finally get to styling my wig XD. The clear strap on the horn is a smidge  big for my head. Can the knot be undone so i can tighten it ?

not sure if you can undo the knot but you can just add another knot without undoing it. i've had to do that with my own pair.

I'm just curious, what type of resin did your boyfriend use?
Reply
:iconbluepaws21:
bluepaws21 Featured By Owner May 30, 2013  Hobbyist Artist
not sure the brand, it's a two part equal mix and hardens in a white. very hard but still light enough for ears!

Wait, I'm confused. My mother ordered me Twilight Sparkle ears, but they didn't come with the horn? Or, when you order them, do you have to buy the horn separately?

:iconbluepaws21:
bluepaws21 Featured By Owner Oct 30, 2012  Hobbyist Artist
you would have to buy the set with the horn! my boyfriends shop list a set just for ears at $20 and then there is another listing with both ear and horn for $25. so if she bought just the ears you will get the ears only, you have to get the listing that says Ears and Horn Set in the title.

you should be able to setup so it takes it straight from your checking account, then that way you do't have to wait sooo long!

Thank you for putting this together. I'll be cosplaying Rarity in a few months and was wondering how I'd get the ears and horn on with my wig. I'll use this, it'll be a great help.
