So I was peacefully minding my own business and enjoying my time remaining at the costume shop, steam-fluffing hat feathers with the gravity iron, and I saw this….
So for reasons that I can’t quite wrap my head around, I’ve fround myself making show-girl headdresses. This is great, except that I don’t fully know how to make a show-girl headdress. I’ve a notion that it’s definitely a wire-and-plier project….
Not all feathers are created equal. It’s unfortunate, but it’s true. You go to the craft store, looking to feather your cap with some amazing, lush plumage, and you find yourself confronted with an array of vacuum sealed ostrich plumes straight out of Flatland. So, what can you do?
