I saw some headpieces from Deep space nine that looked very different and VERY COOL They had horns. I have to ask, as a woman, maybe I should go in drag to have a warriors costume, or can I create a hybrid? Can women have more exaggerated head pieces? Where is the line between accuracy and creativity?

I have never seen horns on a Klingon headpiece, although I would think that an uncolored Jem Hadar might appear that way.

I do not think that a woman would need to be "in drag" to be a warrior, while it is somewhat rare on screen, we have certainly seen female warriors. Fandom is full of them to the point that they are the rule and not the exception we see on screen.

As for being more elaborate, the headpiece is meant to be part of the body, not a fashion statement. The ridges are bone (or at the very least cartilage) covered in skin. Anything protruding like a horn would be something coming  through the skin. This would probably be a physical condition and not a fashion statement. Although it would be possible, we have seen very little body modification among Klingons so I am not sure what would be considered allowable.

I don't know about horns either, but I think that might be kind of cool.  Almost like a "throwback" to a residual crustation like shell (like the tng ep where the crew de evolved).  The forehead piece can be as exagerated as you want.  The duraS sisters had relatively prominent ridges. B'elana and K'eylar had shallow ridges because they were half human.
