Steamy Horns by Nymla Steamy Horns by Nymla

A pair of steampunk horns I made this summer!
I found these copper/brass teapot spouts at a flea market and had to buy them because they were so pretty! Love
Had them for a while just laying around before I one day needed some kind of headgear for an event, and I decided to make them into a pair of horns.
So a pretty simple way to make some cool steampunk horns: a pair of old copper or brass teapot spouts, some brass studs, leather, an old piece of metal work (don’t know what that thing’s called!) and some springs.
They are sewn attached to the wig.

Thanks for looking! I am a dummy!


EDIT:
Oooohhh my, didn't expect this one! Thank you sooo much :iconmaytel: and :iconbrookette: for making this a DD! :excited: I love deviantART!
And thank you to everyone who comments, favs, watch and throw lamas at me! :D All of it is appreciated sooo much :nod:

I am not sure that I would have ever thought to use teapot spouts for horns -- but it's so wonderfully ingenious!!  I love it!!!

Any thought toward sewing them onto a leather band, or a really thin band that you can style into your hair, so you could wear it with multiple wigs?  It looks heavy enough that it'd need some good support, but also versatile enough that you could re-purpose it for a number of different costumes and cosplays.  It's beautiful!

Very nice and creative. I also appreciate the fact you use the word "steamy" to describe it cause they can fit into that aesthetic but they're not really in it. kinda like how I use 'Steamish' XD <3
