When night falls on the lands, you will emerge from the underdark. The sun-loving elves have come to fear you and the silence in which you strike. The fear is not unfounded, for they are your intended prey.

Along with your fellow soldiers, you sneak through the shadows when you find the elven camp. They don't stand a chance against your superior weapons, and you soon leave with a new Elven head in your pack.

DETAILS

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

The Elven Shrunken Head is 12cm tall and 8cm wide with a fine nose and long 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 skin-coloured with shaded creases and wrinkles. It can be carefully dry-brushed or customized using Epic Effects Make-Up.
