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.

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.

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.

Vintage Car Boot Sale, Southbank, London.

An amazing day at the vintage car boot sale in wonderful sunny weather and a great atmosphere. An ideal place to find those cute vintage outfits and unusual artifacts for me to add to jewellery and accessory making.

La Belle et la Bete ~ Gala Nocturna 2014

Meeting the Beast at the ball

Meeting the Beast at the ball

A wonderful evening spent at the Gala Nocturna ball with the theme Beauty and the Beast, held in Antwerp and this year the evenings venue was the Antwerp Zoo. A brilliant ball room, majestic stair case and winter garden. I hope they hold another one next year and I can’t wait to hear the theme and venue.
Ready for the Gala Nocturna ball

New in the Professor Maelstromme Etsy Shop ~ Steampink Queen Victoria.

I am enjoying making Cameos of all types but one of my favorites is the pink and teal Queen Victoria cameo hung on matching teal and pink ribbon and cord  with a green patina finish to the metal cameo setting.
All my items can be customized to suit your style and colours.   I have glued a faux leather backing to the cameos to protect sensitive skin against the patina finish.
