Elf ears for your Onward Costume

Onward is an upcoming film by Disney featuring two teenage elf brothers who receive a wizards staff and are set off on a quest. Since it has ears, we decided to see what ears would be best for each character. Read on if you want to do an Onward costume!

Ian’s elf ears look a like our small Anime Elf Ears or Sun Elf Ears (depending on the size of your head). Ian;s ears are slim and point up and out. While the Sun elf ears may look to be the perfect shape, I believe the anime ears will be a better fit for this cosplay!

Onward Costume Barley Lightfoot

Barley’s ears look like our Nomad Elf Ears. His ears are wider and have a little twist up at the end, just like the nomad’s.

Laurel Lightfoot

Laurel’s ears look just light our Small Anime Elf Ears.

We also have all our ears offered in latex free Neoprene!

About painting your ears for your Onward costume

Aradani can match any color you need the ears painted, but the best way to match any make up you use on your skin, is to also paint them on the ears. The only thing to watch out for is Mineral Oil as that breaks down latex over time.
