They're also perfect for cosplay because they can be attached using only hair clips - I was afraid they'd be heavy enough I'd need to use a headband, but that's not the case. They'd also look excellent sewn onto a wig. (which I had originally planned, but couldn't find the perfect wig!) :D
So go ahead and cosplay as a fancy space cat or a warrior fox! You can do it!
(more photos on the last step, too! :D)
Oh, and if you're looking for a tail to go with the ears, check out my faux fur tail tutorial.
Step 1: What you'll need:
- cardboard (I used a cereal box)
- faux fur (longer fur works best)
- 20 gauge wire
- a new razor blade
- thread & needle
- glue gun + sticks
- hair clips or headband for attaching
- pink felt for inside of ears
- ear pattern, included on this step
Step 2: Cut out cardboard ear bases
Print out the template and cut it out. Trace around it and then cut it out of the cardboard. :)
