Swan hats and headdresses.

These are just a few swan hats that I have created a have a few more in the making which are a different shape and I look forward to posting photos of them when they are finished. I absolutely adore making these. So much fun.

Gala Nocturna Ball 2015 – The Swan Princess.

The theme for Gala Nocturna ball 2015 has been announced!
Incredibly great minds think alike (and so does mine) I have recently been inspired by the swans on the lake at the local park where I run and have created these swan headdresses and hats. It turns out they are perfect for the theme of Swan Princess.

Three variations of this swan hat / fascinator are available at present. One in black color, one in white or ivory and one in deep burgundy color with black feathers.
Each has a little crown on its head and all are decorated with lace and trims with wings of feathers.

Fake Taxidermy Black Bird Gothic Hat.

I love making fake taxidermy pieces or as I like to call it taxifakery. It brings to mind Victorian science collections of birds and insects. Plus surely that is the whole point of Steampunk too, that the taxidermy is fake and Frankenstein-ed.

This is a cute Gothic perch hat which will look great perched on top of any hair do.

I punked this ship fascinator hairpiece with chains, tartan ribbon and safety pins. I Frankenstein-ed the flowers mashing up pink and animal print and beware the base is leopard print with pink edging.

Kunstlerhaus Bethanien exhibition in Berlin

I was invited to exhibit two pieces in the Künstlerhaus Bethanien in Berlin. Celebrating 40 year anniversary with the opening of ‘The Mechanical Corps. On the Trail of Jules Verne’. I went to the launch night, it was very well attended and we had a brilliant evening. The gallery also has studio space for artist to work in.

Aviatrix Fascinator by Prof Maelstromme

I have been trying to fit making this fascinator into my making schedule for a couple of years. It has been shelved for many other projects and I finally got round to finishing it!  It is based on a flying helmet,  and I have incorporated vintage parts from a flying helmet and aviator goggles. Recycling or upcycling the artifacts, well it has saved them from the landfill.

The original idea was created to match and be worn with this wonderful flying jacket corset which was made for the Asylum Steampunk fashion show.

Making Hats.

I felt sorry for this poor vintage creature when I found him at the London Dungeon car boot sale. Yes! they really did have a stall selling all their Jack the Ripper tour stuff and booty when they moved location in London. I curled the vintage creature round the brim of a brown tweed hat with a few other curios and artifacts.
