The holes were about 4 inches apart at the top and slipped the horns through them.
Covering the headband.
I cut one hole in it and while my daughter wore it I threaded it over one horn.
Then wrapped it around the backside and around the front...then I cut another
hole it in and threaded it over the other horn while she was wearing it.
I wish I had more step by steps...this was really stressful.
We cut a piece of snake skin vinyl for the top, but ended up just cutting off the tip and...
Then we decided to make the winter cloak/cape complete with fur collar!
This way the costume is versatile for years to come.

As well as an awesome make-up job!
These are untouched photos! My work was easy!
