Party hard, party hard! - Accessoirs and hairdo
Since I finished the Taille yesterday, I also put some energy into making a headpiece for the outfit. Maybe I will wear this for WGT?! Anyway, the headpiece...
I had some feathers in the same colour as the satin for the outfit, so I wanted to use those. I gathered some inspiration from historical pictures:
You can see that the women around 1860 wore their hair with long locks in the back (for which I have fake hair which is already curled) and their decoration dangling with them. For my headpiece I used foam rubber, a leftover piece of satin, the feathers and my trusty hot glue gun. I used a round base:
In addition to the headpiece, I bought gloves. No women would leave the house without gloves, that was impossible if you weren't an "easy girl". I also bought some pseudo Victorian shoes. And this is the hairdo tutorial I will use when I wear the outfit I made.
