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.

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.

Professor Maelstromme’s Taxifackery Companion Mini Top Hats and Fascinators.

Always fascinated by skulls I have created a range of mini top hats and fascinators using faux cat and crow skulls.  As we loved them to death, and beyond; Not texidermy; Professor Maelstromme’s taxifackery.  The structure that remains after life, is still beautiful (faux or not).
