We make horns and ears and other things that attach to an adjustable headband. Our horns are super lightweight, lighter even than some foam horns, and stronger too. We have been making them for about 2 years now, and we are on the 3rd revision of the design.
They are made from PLA, which can take most any kind of paint, is rigid and tough enough for most use. PLA is also a biodegradable plastic made from corn, making them eco friendly too.
Our horns are finely detailed, either digitally sculpted or from finely detailed 3D scans of real horns.
All of our horns and ears fit onto a common headband that has many holes so you can wear your items high or low. The newest design uses a brass tap with a common screw to hold the horns tightly in place without spinning, sagging or detaching. The screws are recessed into the headband and never touch the wearer’s head. And the headband itself is adjustable by carefully heating it up with a heat gun or stove burner and then bending into a better fitting shape.
Money raised will go to: 50% Second smaller printer to print ears, small horns and headbands so that our larger printer can churn out the big horns, the Ram horns and long twisty ones.
25% New designs: We will use some of the funding to create new designs, new types of ears and horns, including an even more comfortable headband, and a low profile string adapter.
25% Materials: With all the printing we will need several spools of filament to create out horns.

Risks and challenges
This is more of an expansion, and the very reason we are doing this is to reduce risks. The addition of a second smaller printer means we can take the weight off the larger one and it can spend more it's time printing the larger horns.
The main problem/risk is purely time. 3D printing is not quick, it takes time create an object layer by layer. That said, I am working on printing the rewards now, and it is very possible I will deliver the rewards way ahead of a schedule.
