Well packaged, arrived within a month (not too bad for overseas shipping) and exactly as ordered. I was extremely happy with my first set of horns, and I was just as pleased with this set. My go-to shop for castings, despite the international shipping costs.

About

To share beauty with the world

I have always been fascinated by animals and costumery. Ever since I I was little my mother would create costumes for me for the carneval each year in kindergarden and school. During my childhood I was a bat, a turtle, a native american, a viking, a butterfly and many more. Seing my mothers creativity sparked my own and led me on the path towards my own costumes. And when cosplay became a thing at conventions in Norway I finally got the chance to unfold that creative need.

I also have a passion for masks, giving me the opportunity to become something else, preferably something mystic or badass. It gives variety.
Most of my masks are asian inspired, with my own little twist.

I still do cosplay and it has been a wonderous journey to where I am now with many things learned both from success and failure, and I have never been afraid to share what I learned to others.

And then there is my other passion: Horns and antlers.
Being natural things their shape and pattern has always been a great source of wonder to me. For the body of an animal to arrange these wonderous shapes, often quite symmetrical, with a fascinating texture, is to me a thing of beauty.
It's hard to explain why, but when you find a perfect spiral in a pair of sheep horns, or the elegant arcs of a catalina goat horn, or the smooth texture of an impalas horns, with delicate ridges, it is subtle, but it captivates my attention and makes me want to touch and feel.
And it makes me want to see others use them for costumes, fursuits and headdresses. I want to see them used, utilised and admired.

Antlers grow out each year and never look the same from year to year, and eventually fall off to regrow the following year, horns however grow during an animals entire life, but both leads to some amazing shapes.

In the beginning I attempted to make headdresses with real horns, but that turned out rather futile as horns can be quite heavy and rather dificult to handle. Also quite expensive.
So when I had the opportunity to make replicas of my horns arose, I wanted to share that with the world. Let others marvel in the beauty of horns and antlers with an affordable and lighter alternative that still offers the delicate texture of the originals.

That is what I want to give to the world.

NORWEGIAN CUSTOMERS PLEASE READ: 25% moms er IKKE inkludert i prisen. Vennligst kontakt meg for en custom ordre med moms inkludert. Jeg vil refunde alle ordre hvor det ikke har blir kontaktet meg på forhånd.

Mer info på norsk:
I 2016 fjernet Etsy muligheten for selgere utenfor USA og Canada å kunne legge til automatisk moms på produktene våre. Grunnet det så må vi regne ut dette manuelt og legge det til hvert salg til de landene vi er momspliktige. I dette tilfellet er vi pliktige til å betale moms i Norge.

Momsen er på 25%, altså en fjerdedel av prisen, og legges til prisen på produktene dere ser her i butikken enten vist i NOK(kr), eller dollar eller annen valuta man har satt innstillingene til.
Momsprosentene regnes kun utifra prisen på produktene ikke frakten så fraktpris kommer i tillegg.
Momsen vil som oftest legges til i fraktprisen for å hindre at Etsy tar avgifter og prosenter av momsen. Dette kan være litt forvirrende så beklager.

Frakt på de minste hornene starter på ca 70kr og går opp til ca 200kr for de største.
Pakkesporing er tilgjengelig og koster ca 250kr totalt, selv for flere horn.
Det kan også avtales gratis henting i Oslo, ved mitt verksted på Youngstorget.
Fraktprisen inkluderer kostnader som esker, innpakningsmateriale og tid brukt på pakking, som er standard.

Hvis det er noen spørsmål så er det bare å sende en melding og spørre i vei :)
Shipping
I try to recycle as much paper and cardboard as possible, reusing boxes, bubble wrap and packing peanuts. I often use spare cardboard boxes from local businesses.

Shipping costs include packing and handling.

For all horns I will mark the shipping label as "plastic resin replica costume horns" or similar.

If there is a delay I will always do my best to inform about this and why.

Shipping with A-Prioritaire is faster version of regular mail, NO TRACKING.
Shipping to the US takes 8-16 days. Not including time in customs.
Shipping to Europe takes 4-10 days. Not including time in customs.
This is the default shipping option.

Shipping is without tracking to keep costs down. If you need tracking or faster shipping please chose the Tracking option at checkout. Tracking is $42 to most destinations and usually do not take more than 10 days max.

Express Shipping/Courier services by DHL and FedEx is no longer available due to repeating issues with these companies which causes more hassle than it is worth for my part.

Please keep in mind that Black Crane Creations are not responsible for any customs fees on arrival to your country. Please check you local laws to make sure you do not get any extra fees.

Black Crane Creations will also under no circumstances write a lower value on the packages being shipped as this is in violation with the law.
Any requests for this will be ignored.
However if a replacement item is being shipped it will be marked with "Gift" or if shipped with tracking it will be noted as "Replacement Item" or "Repair", as different laws aply for this.
Additional policies and FAQs
Custom orders:
Horns: I do customs works on horns to a certain degree.
-Do you have any horns or smaller antlers you would like to have wearable replicas of? I can help make a mold of an existing pair.
-I also do paint requests.
-I do not make new horns from horns I do not have in my store, as I do not sculpt my horns, they are all replicas. If you don't see it in the store I simply do not have it, or it is in for repair of the mold, which will be stated in the Shop Announcement section. However I do try to broaden my library of horns frequently and I do try to aquire horns that are requested. Keep in mind that real horns are expensive and it will take me time to get it and then make a mold from it.

Mask: I make customs masks and usually that means I sculpt them in clay and then make a silicone mold to make resin casts.


FAQ:
Q: Can I sell the horns and masks I have bought from you to other people?
A: Yes, but preferably if you have painted them or made them part of a larger project like a fursuit head, headress or anything similar. If you want to wholesale my horns please contact me.

Q: Can I make copies of your horns and masks?
A: No.

Q: Can you make [Character] mask/item/horns from [Anime/manga/game/etc]?
A: I would prefer not to. There are copyright laws regarding creating items based on characters and objects from movies, games and so on and I would prefer not to dabble too much in it. However I do make exceptions if the design fits my style and I can show artistic liberty.

Q: Can you teach me how to mould/cast?
A: Sadly no, I get these questions a lot and I can't really teach everyone. It takes time. I would recommend visiting sites like Smooth-On.com for a lot of tutorials and great materials. If you live in Norway I offer small courses at my workshop in Oslo at a makerspace known as Bitraf: http://bitraf.no/
