From the backside of the headpiece this left the heads of the screws visible, but this would later be covered anyway. The absolute most logical thing ever. I used a papercraftt of clay sculpting tools and the tools from an old iPhone repair kit to get into the creases and edges to make the details as sharp as I could manage.
I am a huge cosplay fan and have always wanted to try my hand at making something that looked cool out of foam and Worbla. Seriously, this was taken with a Galaxy S5. To save time, we went The Avengers route honestly just because it seemed to have less pieces than most of the others. Worbla is pretty easy to cut with a decent pair of scissors, but it is easier if you heat it first.

Since the horns are thicker than the 1 inch foam that I papercrsft, I had to use some hot glue to glue a couple pieces of foam together to get the material thick enough.
Lloki bad as I was about taking in-progress shots, she was worse. I did a lot of the straps and buckles and stuff, but all the fabric bits were up to her. The rest of it was magic. Once I had one done, I just flipped the template over on another piece of foam, transferred, and made a mirror copy. I ran out to the hobby shop and picked up some clear resin and a large candy mold sheet that was all different gem sizes and shapes.
Once the layers were dry, I noticed that they were still pretty rough. Bracer template horrible mobile phone pics, sorry!

Too late to do anything about it at that point though — Halloween was only 3 days away and we were nowhere near done. Added 3 drops of green food coloring to the mix and poured the resin into the mold. The whole thing was transferred over papercrafy craft foam, cut out, and glued together.

Several coats of gesso and lots more sanding and it was time to attach them to the headpiece. I started with the helmet. So, now that I knew the rough size and shape that the horns needed to be, it was time to make them.
Luckily one of the employees helped me chop it up right there in the store so that it would fit into the trunk of my car. So, once I had the basic outline of the horn shapes cut out and glued up, I set about trying to shape them into actual horns. I wish that I had thought about this beforehand though, because when you are cutting and sanding the foam into shape, hot glue dries pretty hard and is terrible to try to get through with sandpaper or a knife.
