The great thing about her horns is that they’re so recognizable you could get away with wearing them with a simple black dress or suit or just about anything. You don’t have to replicate the entire costume.
Instructables user ffrisell has basic instructions to make the horns in about three hours, and it all starts with chicken wire to create the rough base shape. Then you mix water and wood glue and soak strips of newspaper in it and paper mache the chicken wire:
Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
