Okay, I've been staring at pictures for over a week, googling every semi-relevant term and I give up..I sure hope someone here has some idea about where to start for this.
I'm cosplaying Huntress Wizard from Adventure Time > http://images3.wikia.nocookie.net/__...f/Huntress.png
and I cannot for the life of me figure out how to make the antlers. I'm planning on making the antlers, leaf hair, and hat all one piece. I'd like to have a headband underneath to support the antlers and keep the hat in place (it will be a bit loose to accommodate the leaves that will be attached to the inside edge of the hem). The problem is, I can't figure out how to securely attach the antlers to the headband, and I'm not entirely sure how to make the antlers. My first thought was to shape them out of wire and wrap them in brown floral tape, attaching the leaves with hot glue or whatever. I'm not sure how well that would work, or how I would go about attaching that to a headband....
I've made props for cosplay before, but they have always been things I hold in my hand or are attached to my costume. I've never had to make something that needs to stay attached on it's own, so I'm kind of at a loss here.
I've got plenty of room and a full time job, so there aren't really any space/money limitations on what I can do. Any ideas greatly appreciated!
