Rococo Punk Ship Hairpiece

Marie Antoinette Punk!

Marie Antoinette Punk!

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.

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.

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.

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.

The Bram Stoker Film Festival Fashion Show

My creative partner and I were invited to take part  by providing outfits and accessories for The Bram Stoker International Film Festival Fashion Show held in Whitby, North Yorkshire, UK ~http://www.bramstokerfilmfestival.com/

We had a fun weekend, with great friends, excellent entertainment in the wonderful town of Whitby and finished it off Sunday at midnight watching the 1992 Dracula film directed and produced by Francis Ford Coppola, based on Bram Stoker’s novel.

Whitby is a seaside town and port situated on the east coast of Yorkshire, England. Once a year it holds the film Festival and twice a year the Gothic music weekends in April and then at Halloween.

Whitby is the home to the ruins of Whitby Abbey, has a history of fishing and whaling, was where Captain Cook learned seamanship, the steam railway arrived in 1839, jet and alum were mined locally with Whitby jet being sort after and fashionable by the Victorians and is associated with the horror novel Dracula writen by Bram Stoker.  Dracula leaves his castle and boards a Russian ship, the Demeter, taking along with him boxes of Transylvanian soil, which he needs in order to regain his strength. During the voyage to Whitby, he sustains himself on the ship’s crew members. Only one body is later found, that of the captain, who is found tied up to the ship’s helm. The captain’s log is recovered and tells of strange events that had taken place during the ship’s journey. Dracula leaves the ship in the form of a dog.

These are the first few photos – more to follow ……

Mad Tea Party Fascinators ~

While clearing out my mums attic I found a wonderful childs doll small china tea set. My mum gave me a bottle of Pimms for doing it! so after a couple of glasses I made the teacups and saucers into hats.  I immediately went out searching all of the local antique shops for more, the mismatched the better.  I have added artificial flowers, hair net, hat pins, spoons, vintage odd earrings and even a spider!
