Handmade LARP Ears - No Spirit Gum Required!

Hey everyone, I'm new here, so I hope this is ok to post!

I've been making these ears for a while now, and a friend who frequents Final Haven invited me to play and potentially peddle my wares :3 These ears require no spirit gum and can easily be taken off at the end of the night for comfort while sleeping.

All the wires are adjustable, as shown in the gif. If they're too big, push the curls together. If they're too small, pull them apart :3 The ears are made from a light-weight thermo-plastic and are super comfy. They are all hand painted and/or airbrushed, so they can be custom matched to your skin tone and/or costume colors. This is how they go on and adjust:

And here are some examples of styles we make frequently, but if you want something custom, we can totally accommodate that as well:

Elf:

Smaller Elf:

Orc:

Dragon:

Water Dragon:

Leaf Fairy:

Butterfly Fairy:

Thanks for checking us out! <3 We are aiming to be at the event in Lansing on the weekend of the 10th of October, so if you want to order customs, please let us know! We can totally have them ready for you at the event. The prices vary based on what style and how many colors you like. The ears start at $20 and are a maximum of $50 per pair. No shipping required if you pick them up at an event, but we ship all over if you can't make an event we'll be at :3 We're really excited to come NPC, at first, and then totally jump in with our chars!

Re: Handmade LARP Ears - No Spirit Gum Required!

I'm genuinely interested, despite living in Texas.

What is the material these are made from? The reason I can't use most traditional prop ears is an allergy to a component in cheap latex that is also shared with face paint.

Do you have a website with everything "in stock" or is everything custom made? Can you make ears/horns that aren't in the pictures here? (i.e. custom orders)

Feel free to PM me if you have any forum/website questions/issues. I can take care of them for you.
Also, note that although my name is red, I am not a GM and therefore cannot answer logistical questions (such as rules) definitively. That said, I'll certainly try to help!

Re: Handmade LARP Ears - No Spirit Gum Required!

Thanks for the questions :3 We don't use any latex because of the large amount of people with latex allergies. The material we use is Wonderflex, which is latex-free. It consists of polycaprolactone/polystyrene/eva film, and polyester fibre. We paint the ears with a mix of acrylic paint (just found at any craft store) and tap water, and we gloss them with Triple Thick brand glaze (also just from a craft store).

We do a mix of custom and whatever we feel like basically - we have elf ears in both sizes in flesh tones ranging from very dark to pale, and we usually have a pair of black and red dragon ears on hand. Unfortunately, since we attend many conventions to sell at, we don't have somewhere where our current 'in stock' available since we usually sell out at each convention. We can make customs, and are currently working on a custom set of rat ears for someone else :3 Hope that answered your questions, but feel free to ask more if not!

Well crap those look fantastic. These guys still around? I don't see a link. I'd love some elf ones. Anyone try a pair for a weekend to see how they feel? The spirit gum after this last even was about enough to kill me.
