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.
