So I swallowed my fear of color a bit and finished the other half of the embroidery on the horns in teal, then sewed up the other sides. I don't have a head form right now, so you get treated to my tired head modeling it. The balaclava/ski mask I'm wearing under it is not what will be used in the end, just giving you an idea about how the piece will look over one. And without it, you could barely see the horns against my dark hair.
I am particularly pleased with how they look from the back--that I'd really not been able to see as I was working on it.
