This is a simple, easy-to-follow tutorial that will have you making adorable furry ears in no time at all. There are many different methods and tutorials out there on the internet, but this one should be a good start to crafting your own.

What you’ll need:

  • Faux fur or fake animal fur
  • Scissors
  • Hot glue gun and glue sticks
  • Headband (or any other type of band to hold the ears in place)
  • Pencil or pen
  • Ruler or measuring tape
  • Craft felt

Instructions:

Step 1

The first thing you’ll want to do is measure the circumference of your headband and then cut your faux fur or fake animal fur to that size. If you’re using a headband that’s not circular, you’ll want to make sure the furry fabric is wide enough to go around the entire band with some extra room so it won’t be too tight.

Step 2

Once you have the fabric cut to size, it’s time to start hot gluing it to the headband. Make sure to do this in smaller sections, so it’s easier to handle and doesn’t get too messy. You’ll also want to leave a small opening at the bottom of the furry fabric so you can still easily put the headband on and take it off.

Step 3

Once the hot glue has dried, it’s time to make the furry ears! Using a pencil or pen, draw two furry ear shapes onto your craft felt and then cut them out. These will be the front of your ears.

Step 4

Next, using a ruler or measuring tape, measure the length of your ears from top to bottom and then cut a piece of felt that is that same size. This will be the back of your furry ears.

Step 5

Hot glue the front and back pieces of felt onto the furry fabric, making sure to match up the edges properly. Once everything is glued in place, it’s time to put the furry ears on and show them off.

You can also customize your furry ears by adding different types of trim, bows, or other decorations. Have fun with it, and let your creativity run wild!

And that’s how you make your very own furry ears for cosplay. With a little bit of time and effort, you can have a set of ears that are totally unique and perfect for your costume. So, get started today and have some fun with this fun and easy project!

You can make furry ears for cosplay that look realistic. There are a few ways to achieve this, such as using some of your own hair and fur from a pet or buying faux fur online. Follow these 5 tips for making better looking and more durable furs:

  • Make sure the fur is the right color. You can find a good selection of colors online, but make sure to get the right shade for your character.
  • Use good quality faux fur. Cheap furs will look fake and won’t last long.
  • Cut the fur into the right shape. Furry ears can be tricky to get right, so take your time and make sure they look good.
  • Sew the fur onto a headband or hair clip. This will help keep them in place and looking good all day long.
  • Take care of your furry ears. They might not be real, but they still need to be treated nicely. Wash them with a mild detergent and lay them out to dry flat.

With these tips in mind, you’ll be able to make some amazing furry ears for your next cosplay.

Wearing and Caring for Your Furry Ears for Cosplay

When it comes to cosplay, furry ears can really complete the look. But before you start wearing them, there are a few things you need to know. First of all, you’ll want to make sure they fit properly. You don’t want them to be too tight or too loose, so it’s a good idea to try them on before you wear them in public.

Another thing to keep in mind is how to wear them. Some ears are designed to be worn on top of your head, while others are meant to be worn around your neck. Be sure to read the instructions carefully, so you know how to wear them properly.

Finally, as we’ve said earlier, you’ll need to take care of your furry ears. Be sure to wash them regularly and keep them free of dirt and dust. You may also want to apply a coat of sealant to help protect them from moisture. And when you’re not wearing them, be sure to store them in a safe place.

When it comes to finding the right size for your furry ears, you’ll need to do a little bit of measuring. Start by taking the measurements of your head around the circumference (or width) and from the top of your forehead to the tip of your ear. Once you have those measurements, you can use a chart like the one below to find the right size for your furry ears.

If you’re having trouble finding a pair of furry ears that fit well, there are a few things you can do to adjust them. Most furry ears come with some sort of strap or band that goes around the back of your head, and this can be adjusted to get a better fit. You can also trim the tips of the ears to get the perfect shape and size.

With a little bit of tweaking, you’ll be able to find a pair of furry ears that look great and stay in place all day long. So put on your best cosplay outfit and show off your new furry ears with pride. You’ll be the envy of all your friends.
