Talking Elf ears Tutorial needed

Hi guys,

Am interested in making a pair of elf ears. Does anyone here have a clue to making them or have a online tutorial that teaches on how to make a pair of elf ears.

I'm using them for Alfina from Grandia III. Hope you guys can help me out~ Here is a reference picture of Alfina.

Much thanks is appreciated~~

I know a way to make them, knowing I've made my own pair before =3 However... it's kind of bootleg, they don't go over your ears, but it's extreemely affordable ^-^

What I did was I bought model magic, shaped them into an elf ear form, and then shape the base of the ear to the curve of a plastic wide headband and let it air-dry for 24 hours. Then depending on what color you used (I've used both white and a peach colored), paint it to match your skin color... and let it dry again :P Then glue the ears onto the headband and bada-bing... bootleg ears! The only thing that stinks with this, though, is that the headband has to go in front of your actual ears... and it really hurts after a while. Sometimes if you use a headband where they have a plastic cover over the tips of the bottom of the headband, it won't hurt as bad.

If you want an example of a finished result, here's my Saria costume with the homeade ears - http://images.cosplay.com/showphoto.php?photo=700788

I hope this works for you ^_^!

I found a site that has a tutorial with how to make ears

All About Ears

Just scroll to the section that says creating your own ears. It looks really complicated though so if you get turned off to making your own from scratch then I know a few sites that sell latex ears.

Aradani Studios

The ears can be found under Prosthetics and Masks and come painted and unpainted. They are actually pretty cheap so rather than going through a long process to make some customes this is another option.

Also Amphigory sells some too that are unpainted.
