Wow, this is truly fabulous!!!   I would love to see an action shot.  I can't imagine how much work went into that...but I can certainly imagine how much fun it must be to wear it!   Wink

oh man, this rocks so hard! I'm using feathers for my jewellery and embellishment and they're such a pain to trim - I can't imagine using 300 of them!
