So! Long story short, I'm a freelance photographer in my spare time, and I do a lot of weddings.  I wanted to do a bridal photoshoot that was a little less stressful than an on-the-spot shoot with an actual bride, so I enlisted the help of my 16-year-old cousin who just got her braces off and was DYING for a photoshoot, lol.


I decided it would be cheaper to make my own veils than to buy them (and I'm sure I was right--total supply cost was under $20, I made about 4 veils, and have enough supplies leftover to make, oh, about 10 more, haha), and here are the results of two of them, at least.  As for the other two, one of them was nearly identical to one of the ones I photographed, so I didn't bother using it, and the other one....well....let's just say it didn't turn out exactly how I had wanted it to, lol.


Oh, and for the record, for this shoot, it took about 4 hours to get ready, and I did:

hair
makeup
nails/toenails
styling
photography
editing
made the veils
made the "bouquet"
bought the dress (thrift store, $15)
bought the necklace (thrift store, $3)
provided the earrings
provided the headband (borrowed from my aunt)


My cousin did the modeling (obviously) and provided the shoes and "ring".

Definitely the most effort I've ever put into one photoshoot to date, lol.  All of that being said, here are the veils!






First one is a traditional veil, made by hot gluing tulle to a comb clip (more difficult than it sounds).  If you flip the veil over your face, the comb actually has some pretty pearl beads along the back, but I didn't get any shots of it.







The second veil is a vintage-style birdcage veil.  Base was another comb clip, which I glued a small piece of cardboard to (made it a little easier to attach the flower), then glued the tulle to the cardboard and the flower on top.






.............and I totally just realized she had taken off the ring for that last picture.....d'oh!  >__O




And there you have it!
Two handmade veils! Smiley
