Rare opportunity! I just found this beauty while packing studio boxes. I'd rather sell it than pack it and move it to the new studio, so I'm offering 20% off, ready to ship. First come, first served. Use coupon code UNICORN20. Don't miss out! two_heartsunicorn_face
Have you thought about your fabulous NYE costume needs yet? Good news- I planned for your last minute shopping and pre-ordered some exceptionally beautiful rainbow moonstone disks which means turn around time will only be 1 week. Don't wait! purple_heartcrescent_moon
Frequent request alert: you ask and I answer! These horns will be less than half the size of my original Elder Goddess Tentacle Horns, and around the same price as small ram horns to make them a wee bit more budget friendly. For pre-ordering, pm me. purple_heartoctopus

About

Life Imitating Art

I started this company in 2008 as an outlet for my creative wearable art projects and could never have imagined how far it would go, or how much joy bringing fantasy to life has brought me. All of my products are made from scratch from start to finish. Every single one of my resin pieces are cast from my original sculptures that I've produced and perfected over the last 10 years. (That's right, Idolatre turns 10 this year! <3) My products are hand painted, sewn, beaded, and constructed with meticulous attention to detail. Everything is produced with love right here in the Pacific Northwest where I was born and raised. If you find yourself saying "wow, that sounds like it takes a lot of time!" it's because it does! I typically work between 10 and 14 hours per day, 6 days per week, and if I'm not producing pieces for orders, I am scheming at research and development for new products to share with you. Exhausting? Well, yes. It totally is. But I wouldn't have it any other way. I love what I do, and I'm so glad that I've found so many kindred spirits to share it with me. When you purchase my items, you are not only getting a quality piece that you will enjoy for years to come, you are supporting one dreamer and her family, enabling her to continually produce evolving works of wearable art, and inviting them out into the world to play. So thank you for viewing my items, making favorites/purchases, and supporting small businesses committed to unique 100% locally handmade beauty. <3

Frequently asked questions

Why are your processing times 2 weeks even for unfinished component pieces?

Everything I make is handmade from scratch. For real. Many horn sellers on Etsy purchase Party City horns to paint or modify into headpieces, but all of mine are made from the ground up. (If you'd like to see a direct comparison illustrating why handmade is so much better than re-purposed/revamped costume store pieces, check out this picture of a headdress I made when I was just getting into headdress making arts specifically in 2010 with purchased horns: https://www.etsy.com/listing/46369420/maenad-ram-horn-headdress?ref=shop_review vs this same headdress style with horns that were cast from my original sculptures: https://www.etsy.com/listing/60339371/maenad-ram-horn-headdress Way better, right? I thought so, too.)

What goes into producing your cast pieces besides just casting the item?

Post casting there are a variety of tasks performed to ensure you get high quality pieces of art. First, all pour spouts and vents are delicately cut off the pieces. Then seams sanded, & small details replaced that may have been lost during the previous processes. Each piece is inspected for imperfections, and corrected with a dremel. If the pieces are to be mounted on a headband, oblong holes are removed from the base, & the openings are sanded to reduce elastic friction. If the pieces are scheduled to be painted, they would then be primed with a spray primer for best paint adhesion, then coated with acrylic spray paint for their base coat. After 3-6 hours cure time for both spray steps, they are ready for hand painting & mounting. Whew!

I am an international customer and I do not wish to pay customs. Will you lie for me on the shipping receipts and say my purchase was really a gift so I don't have to pay ____ country's duties and tariffs?

I print all my shipping from Etsy directly, so this is not an option. I also will not undervalue a package being shipped internationally as I include insurance for the full value of the package contents. Even when marked as a gift, tariffs can still be charged when it is opened and inspected by a customs officer at the border if it looks suspiciously like a purchase, which purchases usually do. I can be held responsible legally and FINED for lying on customs forms. The fines for these violations are huge, and I will not take that risk. Additionally, please note that I will not give refunds for items returned to me due to non-payment of import dues. Concerned? Check: simplyduty.com/import-calculator to calculate costs incurred by your gov.

Do you offer wholesale discounts on your unfinished resin products?

I'm sorry, but I do not wholesale my resin components. I sell individual unfinished resin pieces as an egalitarian gesture to individuals who would not otherwise be able to afford a headdress so that they can still purchase something in their price range and create their own magic. Art is my full time job so I know all about wanting wonderful things that cost more than I can afford!

That said, I do offer wholesale discounts on completed headdresses purchased in quantity, so if you're doing a group cosplay, stocking your boutique, or outfitting your theater or dance troupe do not hesitate to ask!

I want to purchase your ___ and use it in a photo shoot- is that alright?

Absolutely! I'm flattered you would want to use my art in the creation of your own. In fact, feel free to use the coupon code PHOTOSHOOT10 at checkout for 10% off your purchase.

I really like your stuff and I want to make something exactly like it- where do you buy your ____?

Part of the hard work that goes into making visually compelling products is sourcing wonderful materials. This takes a lot of time and effort, and helps my items look unique. If I gave away the sources that I have worked hard to acquire, it would compromise the individualism of my shop. This is actually part of the reason I've evolved my store to make almost all my own components & findings- because if they are purchased from a vendor, people will find that vendor, then all of a sudden 40 copy shops pop up on Etsy attempting to make something suspiciously resembling your products. Needless to say, that it's more than disheartening when you work so hard to develop your own unique designs. So sorry, but I'm not sharing sources.

Are these horns/antlers "real"? Do you use "real" fur?

Nope! The horns and antlers are composed of Smooth Cast 300, a polyurethane resin. Not only that, but they're not cast from real horns or antlers, either. Which means that not only are they more balanced and far lighter weight for a human head/neck than their natural counterparts, they're also symmetrical little works of art for your head that are completely vegan from start to finish. Likewise with the fur- it's all high quality acrylic and animal free.

Is this price in any way negotiable?

Sorry, all my prices reflect the time it takes for me to make the items and the cost of materials. This is more than an expensive hobby for me, this is how I make a living.

Can I have progress shots of my order?

I'm afraid this is not a service I offer as the time to stage and take the shots is not included in the cost of the item.
