Sweet Jesus, this took me forever because I’m not too familiar with German, but I’ve translated this into English.
My apologies in advance to any German-speaking people if I’ve butchered this, but with Google Translate and studying these pictures, I’m pretty sure I’ve got the gist of it. Anyway! Here’s the approximate translation of the tutorial for these rad-looking horns!Tutorial for Horns, by DevilKato:
1: First, consider how thick your horns should be. Mine are 14cm at the bottom, 2cm on the sides, and 7cm at the middle of the peak. However, you can make them as you want. As for the shape, I chose points, which look nicely thorny. You can paint them whatever color you like. Additional pieces should be 5mm smaller, so at the bottom they’d be 13.5cm, 13cm, 12.5cm and so on.
2. Now that the pieces are cut out, sew the edges together with a needle and thread. Yes, it’s a bit of work but that’s just how it goes. Be careful not to pull too tightly or your foam will tear. I have used white foam here so it is easier to see.
3. I have 9 pieces, but it is up to you how many you want. The last bit is similar to the other, but smaller than the smallest ring. The tip can be as long as you like - mine is about 10cm. Start at the bottom and draw a line to where you want the tip to be. Cut the shape out and sew the edges together. 
4. Put the pieces together to make sure they fit. You can adjust them to give the horns a bend, or just let them lean back. That’s the nice thing about this material, you can do with it what you like. 
5. Glue the parts together. Superglue along the lower edge of each piece, pushing it onto the piece beneath it. This is the part where you can bend or shape the horn. After everything has dried, you can cover the seams, which I haven’t done yet. Though you certainly could with paint or fabric(??). Or you can just spraypaint the whole thing.
6. After the horns are painted, they look like this. I used silver spraypaint, which looks nice and is easy to apply. It didn’t get all over, so there are still black foam parts showing. But that doesn’t look bad. To attach these to a wig, I put four threads through the inside, pulled through the wig, and knotted them together. But you could also just fasten them to your own hair. For example, by attaching a wire inside and hot gluing to a headband. That’s up to you, but certainly an option if you aren’t using a wig.
7: Tips/IdeasReinforce with iron-on fleece to strengthen the horns (I think. Google Translate got sorta wonky at this part.) I have not tried this yet, but I might to add more strength. It also might give a nice effect like snakeskin or something. I’ll see if I try this again. You could also try working with liquid latex. 
8: ClosingI hope you enjoyed my tutorial. If you want me to do something like this again, please ask. Yes, the horns are crooked and that is intentional. I have decided to not always have perfect horns unless requested. Yours, Kaito

Dani Moonstar’s Sword in progress, designend by the amazing Zach Fischer Comics & Illustration

As promised, here a complete step my step mini tutorial of the sword I’ve finished only yesterday! The construction cost me around 20 hours plus 8 hours for painting.

The base was a combination of two pvc pipes (different thicknesses, which can be easily slided together), balsa wood and EVA foam. Balsa wood and EVA foam are very lightweight and easy to carve with a dremel, so they are some of my favorite materials for a prop base. Since they are pretty breakable however, it was necessary to cover them with Worbla to make them more durable and solid. Also the whole sword can be separated in two pieces so it’s easier to transport it. To connect both pieces I’ve just made hole throw both pvc pieces and fixed them then with a screw. 
I also wanted to light up my gemstones, so I’ve left some space for a 9V battery in the bottom part and then connected 12 3V LEDs with a simple circuit (three LEDs in serial, connected then in 4 group parallel). You’ll find a tutorial for the LED gemstones here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pszN08KCNUc
Then the whole circuit is connected with some tiny plugs between top and bottom. So hide the battery, screw and cables I also added some detachable pieces which are fixed with velcro to the sword. Not the best solution and I guess I’ll replace the velcro with magnets later. 
At the end the sword was primed with around 6 layers of wood glue and then painted with acrylics by hand. 

And yeah, that’s pretty much all! Hope this help you with your own projects!

necroticnymph:

RIT color remover, but dilute it so it doesn’t do it too much. You can also use a VERY low concentration of bleach mixed in water but keep a bottle of vinegar handy to nullify the effect once it starts getting too light.
