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

Aviatrix fascinator

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.

I have a stall at Whitby Gothic Weekend this weekend.

Whitby is a seaside town in North Yorkshire, England.  It has a combined maritime, mineral and tourist heritage, and is home to the ruins of  Whitby Abbey.  The fishing port developed herring and whaling fleets and was where Captain Cook learned seamanship. Tourism started in Whitby in Georgian times and developed with the coming of the Steam railway in 1839 and the Steam railway is still there today. Well known for its association with the horror novel Dracula by Bram Stoker, its Jet and alum were mined locally, and Whitby jet, which was mined by the Victorians became fashionable during the 19th century.

Goths meet here twice a year, April and October to socialize, enjoy the cobbled streets of the fishing town , cafes, pubs and shop in the brilliant selection of Goth and Steampunk stalls available over these weekends.

Whitby Abbey ruins and beautiful coast view.

found antler fascinator

A friend of mine works in forestry and found these antlers in his woods. I have painted them purple and silver and mounted them on a purple colour fascinator. This item, spats, hats and jewellery I will have on my stall at Whitby, the Spa Theater 26th – 29th April.

Steampunk Wild Wild West Bullet Garters.

I found this cool old tan leather holster, just the right size for a lipstick, a mobile phone and a purse. I put it together with a bullet garter belt, one for each leg and some bullet conchos.

Below are a pair of  Steampunk western style bullet garter belts I made.  Adorned with lace, bullet casings and bullet conchos.

Spats that look great with high heel shoes.

I designed another type of spat shape, that flatter the ankle for my niece to wear with her high heel shoes.  I loved the shape so much that I made a pair for myself too in leather and spikes.
