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.

The Bram Stoker International Film Festival Fashion Show continued.

Part three of photos from The Bram Stoker International Film Festival Fashion Show held in Whitby, North Yorkshire, UK.

This is our third model; the scumptious Evie Wolfe wearing a shocking pink bird fascinator and matching beautiful corset and skirt. I designed the hat to contrast with her blue hair!  I wanted to keep the collection themed by Gaslight romance and Victorian horror.
