Making Hats.

hat1

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.

New pig!

The farmer has moved a pig to the field next to my house. I feed him every evening after work. He looks really mean but he isn’t, he is very friendly and loves all the food I give him. :)

La Belle et la Bete ~ Gala Nocturna 2014

Meeting the Beast at the ball

Meeting the Beast at the ball

A wonderful evening spent at the Gala Nocturna ball with the theme Beauty and the Beast, held in Antwerp and this year the evenings venue was the Antwerp Zoo. A brilliant ball room, majestic stair case and winter garden. I hope they hold another one next year and I can’t wait to hear the theme and venue.

New in the Professor Maelstromme Etsy Shop ~ Steampink Queen Victoria.

Queen Victoria Punked!

I am enjoying making Cameos of all types but one of my favorites is the pink and teal Queen Victoria cameo hung on matching teal and pink ribbon and cord  with a green patina finish to the metal cameo setting.
All my items can be customized to suit your style and colours.   I have glued a faux leather backing to the cameos to protect sensitive skin against the patina finish.

Human bones rain down at Whitby after church yard land slide.

Some more photos from the Bram Stoker International Film Festival fashion show 2012 taken at Whitby, UK. the celebrated town of Dracula and wonderful for all followers of goth.  Whitby has recently been in the news for its terrible land slides in the graveyard where reportedly “human bones were raining  down” on to the cottages and gardens below. A very sad scene for such a historic and beautifully situated Church. Link to the story on the BBC below.
