so i had this costume planned for halloween, a sky pirate and i was thinking that i could have a boned collar attached to my coat, one that would stand up and i could attach 'scale mail' to for an armoured look.

and then i have this ball i have to go to, and i thought that it would be cool if i had an elizabethian ruff style collared capelet to go over my dress, which is very simple and elegant.

so i started thinking about how i could go about doing it, and i was lookign through my stash and i made a prototype.

it has four boned points and can be bent into a few different shapes, but the one shown is the one i like best.  the one i wear to the ball will be in black and white and beaded (hopefully mohair for the yarn) and have a capelet. i made the boning myself, out of 16 g wire and duct tape

and i did a variation of the loops scarf i love it so much, its warm and fuzzy and can be worn a billion different ways.


living with an inferno doesn't mean it has to swallow you whole, you just have to know when to feed the flames.

Fantastic job on the collar! I've been wanting to make something similar (two failed prototypes, blargh) for almost six month lol

Good job!

Great idea & design! I can't wait to see it in B & W. Also, I just love the scarf! The color is stunning. What yarn did you use for it?
