A Big Fan, or Four

Look what I made! It's a fan headdress with lace, glitter foam, silk flowers and rhinestones. It was done for a special purpose and I promise to tell you more when the time comes :) I was wanted to give you a little peek because I'm so proud of the headdress!

Those golden thingies are Thai dance fingers, little hollow metal tubes tapered on one end that fit on your fingers. I thought they brought the right kind of magic to the photo! I'm wearing a Chinese eBay dress and a lovely PVC waist cincher by Artifice clothing. I tried to do the make up in a Chinese opera make up style, but it doesn't really look anything like it when done in purple instead of the usual red. Oh well! It still works well with the purple of the headdress. I think.

    1. Kiitos! Mä ostin nää eBaylta alle punnalla kappale, mutta ne olivat viimeistelemättömiä, puunvärisiä bambuviuhkoja. Maalasin ne ite mustalla ja se homma oli ihan pyllystä, mutta hyvä tuli ;D Suosittelen ostamaan valmiiksi mustia viuhkoja, joita tajusin ettiä vasta kun mulla oli jo bambuviuhkat kädessä.
