One day at work my boss said that she needed me to make her a headpiece to go with a black and red burlesque costume. So right after eating my avocado sushi I whipped this up for her. I should point out that she is wearing a wig for this.


I was definitely inspired by my friend Inessa, who makes awesome costume pieces all the time.


Its made up of elastics, lace, sequins, a few black rhinestones, and a peacock feather. I only used a glue gun, which worked surprisingly well. Its really nice working on a project like this at the store, because I have full access to so many trims and dont need to plan anything ahead of time, plus it only took about 20 minutes.

You can also see it on my website.

No, I joked about taking it after her party but really I made it for her. Black and red aren't really my colors, and as much as I love peacocks I don't wear feathers. Besides, I can always whip up a new one in 20 minutes  Wink

This looks really cool! I love how the embellishment emphasizes the real feather rather than takes away from it (If it was me, you wouldn't even know there was a feather in there). Nicely done. Smiley
