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.
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.
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.
Introducing model: Terri De-Lis Altilar at the fashion show, wearing human jaw bone, skull mini top hat, rib cage corset and sheer black fish tail skirt. I promise no bones were used from Whitby’s church yard.

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!
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.
These are great fun to make and I will be listing some more designs on my shop soon.
