A few years ago I made this hat for an 18th Century costume party, and while I may have posted a snapshot of the costume, I never did a proper post of my favorite aspect of the outfit: The hat!
I just watched Mirror Mirror for the first time yesterday, and in one scene people have ship hats on, so it reminded me to actually photograph my own!
I wanted the ship to look as though it were caught up in fateful wave, the blue and white plumage reaching up and over. I used traditional buckram as best I could, using needle and thread rather than hot glue, and I'm surprised it's held up this long! I haven't attempted more millinery creations, but this was a fun one, maybe one day I'll have another use for it.
