It’s only logical to want properly pointed ears to go with your Vulcan cosplay. Star Trek made ear prosthetics popular and so did Lord of the Rings. While you can purchase pre-made ears that fit over your own and modify them, you can also start from scratch and create a realistic set of ear prosthetics that are an exact match. Tested host Norman Chan worked with effects artist Frank Ippolito to sculpt and cast a set of ears for him to wear at WonderCon. It started with making life casts of Norman’s ears, pulling reference photos, and using medium chavant clay to sculpt the ears. As Ippolito works, he and Chan discuss materials and processes – including application.
