OTAKON 2013 TROLL HORN GIVEAWAY

This year, Maria and I (Aranea and Meenah, respectively) will be giving away free pairs of Homestuck troll horns outside of the Baltimore Convention center on Friday, August 9 in the spirit of generosity.

The pictures above are only a fraction of the horns we will be giving away.


About the horns:


These horns are made from Model Magic (some with tin foil bases), painted with high quality acrylic paints, and sealed with a variety of spray-on and painted on glossy sealants. They come screwed onto a headband so that you can unscrew them, put the headband on, poke the screws through the wig, and screw the horns on top. This gives them a very realistic and professional appearance.

Characters featured in the giveaway:

Sollux Captor (or any Captor)

Karkat Vantas (or any other Vantas)

Nepeta Leijon (or any Leijon)

Kanaya Maryam (or any other Maryam)

Terezi Pyrope (or any other Pyrope)

Vriska Serket (or any other Serket)

Equius Zahhak (or any other Zahhak)

Gamzee Makara (or any other Makara)

Eridan Ampora (or any other Ampora)

Feferi Peixes (or any other Peixes)

PLEASE NOTE that supplies will be limited and we can’t guarantee you’ll get a pair! We’ll be in a stand similar to Aranea’s “The Sylph is IN" booth and it’ll say “The horns are IN!"

What about the cost?

Although we ARE NOT permitted to sell these horns because of copyright rules, there will be a tip jar and donations are welcome. Materials are not cheap and we spent many hours creating these horns to give away.

We hope to see you there!! Please tell your friends!

I was only there on Saturday the 10th, sadly. It would've been nice to get a pair of nepeta ones since the pair I made didn't come out so great.

I remember seeing you guys at the center! I wasn't able to pick any horns up due to the fact that I'm working on john and not a troll, but it still gave me a laugh to see the stand!

Hello! We are glad you got to see us at the stand and that we gave you a laugh. It's too bad you couldn't pick up any horns. We hope you had a good time at Otakon. Thanks for contacting us!

I understand that completely. Even when I get my license, I won't be allowed to drive up all the way to Baltimore.

I know alot of people are saying this but that's so generous of you!!!!! I will be at Otakon all three days and I was wondering what times will your booth be open? And I feel bad about just taking your stuff so maybe we can do some sort of trade...? To make things fair of course.

It's so great to hear you'll be able to make it!! 
Our booth will be set up likely in the early morning (maybe 8 or 9 a.m.? not sure on details) and we'll be open until we run out of horns, which might be quickly or slowly depending on how many people have heard of us / are interested in getting some horns. 
We will have a tip jar for anyone who would like to return our generosity; although we can't ask for payment in exchange for horns, we hope we can make up for our financial losses with tips! 
Will you be cosplaying? If so, who can we keep our eyes peeled for while we're at the stand?

Yes I will be cosplaying! I'm doing a character from Fairy Tail Friday morning and then Rose friday afternoon. I have a friend of mine who will also be with me as Jade. And since this is my friend's first weekend convention she wants to get there SUPER early so we don't have to wait to get in. Even though we live 2 and a half hours away from the convention center.

Yay, so cool! We're hoping to stay for the draw party but we just aren't sure if my dad will let us stay out that late, you know? My friend didn't wanna do pjstuck trolls because she didn't wanna get grey paint on her clothes.. but I think it would be more fun to do a troll costume!

edolasotakuslayer98 Featured By Owner Aug 1, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
Yeah! The only problem is that although I have grey gloves so I don't have to paint my arms, I don't have grey tights so I don't have to paint my legs. So I might have to wear long paints. I want to do Vriska since I'm already doing alive Aradia during the day at the convention but my Serket horns broke off my headband..... :(

Vriska in long pants would be super cute!! Is there any way you can fix the Serket horns? If not, hopefully you can snatch a pair from us as a replacement!

Man, you're so far away! We will be driving 2000 miles to get to Baltimore, though, so we know your pain. 
It's too bad you can't come over and see us. We have lots of Karkat horns to give away, for sure!

SDSGHJDD Now I really wanna go ;;. I don't think anyone would be kind enough to get me tickets or the plane tickets, and hotel because my budget's horribly low. ;-; But I'm saving up for Everfree NW for next year along with fursuit stuff, so I have a lot to budget this year.
