I got my crown yesterday from jennieingram!  Check out this masterpiece fit for the Queen of Space (oh yes, both meanings apply to me), and sorry for the blurry pics, I'm still stuck with the camera on my phone:



It looks like lace, stiffened beautifully, all black, with blue, iridescent, and clear sparklies lined up around it in the lace pattern!  jennieingram is amazing, the join is all but invisible and the lace looks like it just flows around the whole crown!  And here's a (fuzzy) closeup of the front medallion:



jennieingram says that it is the Goddess of the Dawn, and she will help me reign wisely!  She has beautiful wings and floats gracefully in front of her loyal stallions.

I don't have any action shots, but it stands up straight and proud on my head, and makes me feel like a Russian Tsarina as well as the Queen of Space!  It fits beautifully and is very comfortable too.

Thank you, jennieingram!  I loved swapping with you and my crown is beautiful.

Also thanks to everyone who complimented my handiwork!  This gallery is full of gorgeous crowns, every one of them so pretty!

I'm glad you like it, jemimah! And I love your action photo! Grin


That's a gorgeous crown, perfect for the Queen of Space! I love the idea of the stiffened lace, that's so clever!

So I received Thursday and I was super spoiled by not one, but two crowns AND a brooch... the first is papercrafted with a foamy felty lining and some really pretty bling:

the second was a wire and bead tiara-style crown that is actually sparkly but my camera wasn't picking up the sparkle right (so just imagine a shiny version of what's in the photo)
 
And finally the brooch:

Thanks so much for the awesome royal treatment, Samantha_McKay!

Recieved my wonderful tiara from Glamis!!









So pretty and it is amazingly light that I acciedently wore it to a theater performance without realizing it until everyone began complementing it!   Thanks Glamis, I hope you like what I made you as much as I love mine

Ugly. Is irrelevant. It is an immeasurable insult to a woman, and then supposedly the worst crime you can commit as a woman. But ugly, as beautiful, is an illusion. - Margaret Cho
