Thanks a lot for sharing!
Coincidentally I just recently printed out your jackalope and put it on my "want to do this for my brother" list.

SO. COOL. These are gorgeous, and definitely on my list of things to make. I just wanted to let you know that I put a picture of these (credited and linked) on my craft blog, in an article about Elmer's glue. (I don't actually know what mixture you used for the paper mache, but I've always used Elmer's, and I was just looking for something gorgeous made with paper mache). The link, if you want to see the article, is http://sticktoyourglueguns.wordpress.com/2012/12/27/a-love-letter-to-elmers/

I guess the same principle would apply to making larger antlers like elk and moose. You might have to use heavier gauge wire.
I wouldn't want to wear one that heavy, though. Might be worth it if I wanted to dress up as Bullwinkle.

I actually made a deer one (I don't have it here, but I think it was about 15 inches high) and I didn't change a thing in the construction. I wore it for a costume party and most of the time I didn't even notice it was on my head. And the moments I did were when I almost couldn't get in and out of the car  Roll Eyes

The antlers are fairly lightweight due to the use of papier mache, so you could go quite big without them being too heavy.

Definitely keeping this one for the craft queue.  I'm with a theatre group (Antelope Valley Thespians) and I've been craving something fun, easy and sharp to use as fundraising ideas.  I can't say enough how awesome these little guys are!  Thank you so much!

That reminds me of this "The Far Side" cartoon: "Nature scenes we rarely see."

Thanks for the advice on the weight.

Haha, yes.
I also got caught in those straps that dangle from the top of the streetcar. I am sure that looked exactly like in the cartoon Grin
