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.

Airships? .... Where?

Telescope mini tophats and binocular necklace.  I love using these small opera glasses in my jewellery.  I love the worn appearence of these.

I love these old dented and distressed binoculars.  I did’nt have the heart to dimantle them, so I put them into a necklace as they are.  I am waiting to replace the bolts and add more chains when I find the items I am looking for.
