Care for the products

Care for Polymer Products (Horns): 
Store the horn in a dry, cool and dark place. Clean with a moist, clean towel. Do not clean with a wet towel. Carefully blot dry. do not rub the horns.
Avoid extreme heat. This can lead to irreparable damage. Extreme heat can be categorised as a curling iron, hair dryer, contact with a heater, prolonged exposure to extreme sun (45 degrees Celsius or more) or leaving it in a hot car and such. 
The horns are hollow and must therefor never be squashed into a box or luggage. Bending the horns can permanently damage them beyond repair. It is best to store them in a seperate box. 

Applying the horns: Apply an even coat of skin adhesive on the grey foam base. Press to the forehead and hold it while letting it dry for about 5 minutes. Heavier horns need longer, smaller ones need less time. Make sure not to glue on hair. The first time glueing the horns on might take longer. After use: Pull off gently. Remove remaining adhesive from the skin with adhesive remover, make-up remover or soap. Leave the adhesive on the horns, as it aids the glueing process next time. This way, the horns will stick progressively easier. 

 

 

Care for Latex and Foam Products (Horns or Scales):
Store the tail in a dark, dry place that is cool. Clean with a moist, clean towel. Do not clean with a wet towel. Carefully blot dry.  Regularly spray the latex with silicon/latex spray to keep it from getting dried uit and breaking, and to help prevent latex rot.
Caution: Avoid extreme heat. This can lead to irreparable damage. Extreme heat can be categorized as a curling iron, hair dryer, contact with a heater, prolonged exposure to extreme sun (45 degrees Celsius or more) or leaving it in a hot car.
If the item has airbrushed or hand painted marking, this paint might fade over time due to brushing and UV light. Airbrushed or hand-painted markings can be re-applied for a small sum by Custom Costumes, for which the shipping costs are for the client.

 

 

Care for Faux Fur and Felt Products (Ears and Tails and moth antennae):
Store the item in a dark, dry place, preferably hanging freely. Make sure the fur is smoothed before storing, as crooked hairs can become permanently bent after a while when stored improperly. 
For the ears and tails: Only comb the fur with a comb and do this as little as possible. Never wash this fur, as it might cause the hand-dyed parts to fade. If wet, dry in open air while the fur is hanging freely. Never put the fur in a washer or dryer!
For the moth antennae: The fur must never be combed or get wet! Always store the antennae in a dry spot with the hairs straightened. Getting them wet will cause the hairs to permanently sag and lose their defined shape.
If the item has airbrushed or hand painted marking, this paint might fade over time due to brushing and UV light. Airbrushed or hand-painted markings can be re-applied for a small sum by Custom Costumes, for which the shipping costs are for the client.
