Burlesque beauty

So, i actually wanted to post this yesterday, but since this hat was a custom project for someone and not just for me, i figured i'd wait until she'd actually seen it.

Making a custom piece was fun, and could pretty much do what i wanted with it, but it was still different, cause i kept thinking of the occasion it was for.
And the deadline obviously!

But i think it turned out pretty good and, lucky for me, so did my friend.

It took a few tries to get the base right, so that alone took almost a day, but i love how that green turned out (there are many layers and stuff!)
I saw this fella on the way home from the supply store on thursday and took it as a sign...
A sign that i needed to add some peacock feathers to this hat!
Allan took some fancy pictures last night of the finished piece

Ok, so it's pretty big and dramatic, but the person who'll be wearing it can certainly pull off dramatic!

Maybe next week i'll have some cool pictures of her wearing it!
