When night falls on the lands, your prey will emerge from the underdark. Much of your village has come to fear the underground elves and the silence in which they strike. They must be stopped.

Along with your fellow hunters, you see the first dark elf leave the safety of his cave. He doesn't have a chance to go far before your arrow finds his heart. You will take his head and leave it at the cave's exit as a warning to his brethren.

DETAILS

Epic Armoury's Dark Elf Shrunken Head is a ghastly latex accessory designed to look like the shrunken head of a dark elf foe. Made from 100% natural latex and synthetic hair, this head adornment can be hung from a belt or staff using its weathered hair. It is sure to create fear in the hearts of your enemies.

The Dark Elf Shrunken Head is 12cm tall and 8cm wide with a pointed nose and pointed ears. Sculpted and handpainted details make it appear as if the head had been cut off, de-boned and preserved through a drying process. A sculpted latex bone has been set through the trophy's nose and the lips have been pierced with beaded strings for decoration. The Shrunken head is ebony-coloured with shaded creases and wrinkles. It can be carefully dry-brushed or customized using Epic Effects Make-Up.
