Name: 1 Pc Cute Small Sika Deer Antler Ears Hairband 4 Colors (link)
The antlers are made of a soft felt and amply stuffed (although one is stuffed more firmly than the other.) Overall, the antlers are puffy and soft—good to squeeze! >:3 The antlers are glued in place so you can’t adjust their positioning. Also, they’re dark brown, not toffee-colored like in the photo. The headband portion is wrapped in black satin.
For the most part, everything looks okay. The satin on the headband is smooth and the antlers stand up just fine. The only concern is where the antlers connect to the headband. On one side there is a lot of stringy fluff (presumably the stuffing) leaking out of the antler. It seems that the hole they created for the headband to go through was too large and some stuffing is spilling out. On the other antler, there are also bits of thread and glue visible on the bottom.
I like the design and concept! Admittedly, the workmanship is not great, but since it’s just sitting on my head, I think it’ll hold up enough to at least get the 3 bucks worth.
I won't deny that it looks a bit costumey and unsuitable for daily wear. I’d say it’s even more daring than cat ear headbands or usamimi. But come mid-December when the Christmas spirit is in full swing, some people do get a little festive with their outfits. So if you’re a bit courageous, this would be an adorable (and unique) alternative to the usual reindeer scarf! At the very least, this would be suitable for a holiday gathering, like a Christmas party with your school club. (Talking PG-13 clubs here!) If it makes you feel better, I myself plan on wearing this while I go shopping in mid-December! :) I’ll blend right in with the Christmas decorations in the mall ^_^
In my humble opinion, this headband would look fantastic with a mori girl outfit:
But going back to my comment about this being a cute alternative to the usual Santa hat, here is an example of what I mean. The following is something I might wear to a holiday party with my school club, with the deer headband added on to make me look even more cute and Christmasy. :D
Shirt: Express Bus Terminal
Skirt: Tokyo Fashion
Shoes: Yumetenbo, $23
I was laughing at a sign I had just read. It said: Those with active diarrhea or who have had active diarrhea in the past 14 days will not be permitted in the pool.
If you don’t agree with my style, think of it this way: at least these photos gave you an idea of what not to wear it with. :)
