So this subject has SURELY come up before, but I wish to find help on my own... I am cosplaying Link next time I cosplay. I however as many of you may know, I do not have pointed ears.

So there is where I need the help. I have fake ears, but they do not work. I have tried to get them on, 1 they look VERY fake.... 2 they fall off...

HOWEVER! I found this site, and I was wondering if this would work. I was planning on using Spirit Gum I found a place by me where I can get it AND I can also get the 2 pack which includes the actual adhesive and the remover. HELP!

Use fake eyelash adhesive. It stings a tiny bit to get off but does the job.

For my ears for my Link cosplay, I use spirit gum. It works really well. It doesn't sting at all, and it sticks all day. I put the spirit gum on my ears once, wore them all day to the con, and to the rave, and they never came off.

I got my ears here:

I have heard good things about http://aradanicostumes.com/

I have started using the "Large Ear Tips" from The Scream Team, becuase my friends have been using their full face prosthetics for a variety of costumes for years and have always been very happy with them and their quality.

The best pictures I have of them are from when my friend was getting painted up in her Dark Link (We used the Same Ears)

I apply my prosthetics with Pros-Aide glue. Great stuff, it can hold a full face prosthetic appliance all day with little slippage, so you can imagine that it holds ears well. You do need a remover to take off your appliances.

Of course it does depend on the stlye of Zelda your friend is going for. OoT Time has larger ears, while TP has sort of smaller, more "realistic" ears.

Hey all. So I tried to find ear tippers. Uhm well the only ones I can find anymore are Latex. And I forgot to put this in. I am actually kind of really allergic to Latex.

Which brings me to the second question. DOES SPIRIT GUM CONTAIN LATEX!?!?!?
