Rabbit deer antler headdress by lupagreenwolf Rabbit deer antler headdress by lupagreenwolf
This is the first of two pics of this project.

The base of this headdress is a small set of whitetail deer antlers on the skullcap, which has been padded and wrapped in leather. Draped over it is a panel made of six greyish-brown rabbit skins, with an additional layer of tattered black leather from a coat. I also added a dangle with a black glass bead to it as well. The headdress has two cords for fastening; one goes under the chin, and the other drapes down the back of the head and ties around the neck, and is adjustable in length. It's pretty secure; it'll move a bit if you jump around some, but unless you incorporate headbanging into your rituals you should be fine. The headdress measures 32" long from the tips of the antlers to the bottom of the fur.

Amazing head dress! I am looking to do something more simple with my antlers, can I ask how you padded the skull piece?

Thank you :) I wrapped some stuffing in leather and tied it to the underside of the skull, basically.

Wow, beautiful. I plan on making one of these when I go to Castlefest, but I don't know where to begin. the main materials I'm going to use are the antlers and deerskin. Do you have any tips for me, cause I'm pretty clueless.

It's still a work in progress here, trying to figure out the best balance--I can't really explain it because I don't yet have a satisfactory method.

"...but unless you incorporate headbanging into your rituals you should be fine."

I read that line and just lol'd at the image of someone headbanging with this on during a ritual. XD

This is a great piece, I hope you make more of these headdresses!

I should wear something like this next time I'm at a concert with a mosh pit. I'm a tiny thing, and my face is at elbow height with most of the big guys in the pit. This might help even the odds ;)
