HELP!! Someone, please guide me in the right direction. I want to create a character similar to Universal Studios "Darkness". Starting in the video at about 2:15 you can see who I am referring to if you do not know. My question is, what would I make the horns from? I want them to be very over sized. Any thoughts? THANKS!

Darkness came from the movie "Legend" starring Tom Cruise. Tim Curry played the creature in the movie. Tom has denied making the movie but I actually liked it. You can see Darkness in all his glory if you google the movie or pop in your video store to watch it!

They would have to be really light and yet rigid... I'm thinking some sort of fiberglass cast or even a really good/solid paper maché over a wired form.

(and Curry was fabulous in that part... loved him!)

That is a GREAT movie =) If I'm not mistaken, I'm pretty sure that the actual horns for the movie were carved out of styrofoam. I used to have a special edition copy of the movie with a bunch of behind the scenes footage and I know that they explained how the horns were made. I'll have to see if I still have it and report back to you =)

Update us with pictures if you decide to move forward with the project =)

I own a Todd McFarlane toy of Darkness, but it doesn't look like the brown models pictured above. Here's what mine looks like:

Ugh, I was just trying to remember the name of the bad guy in Legend the other day. It came up because I was saying how Evil Mia Sara would be a cool costume.

I have seen a VERY good "Darkness" mask in my local costume and party supply store. The mask is, i believe, silicone, very well painted and the horns are either molded plastic or part of the mask with a rigid framework inside. The mask is full covering the entire head and part of the chest area.
