Showgirl Headdress –
Do you dream of dancing at the Folies Bergere in 1900, or the Tropicana in 1955? Or On the Vegas strip tomorrow night? Embrace your inner showgirl with a DIY headdress.
Quick and dirty tutorial from my top costuming site of all time, the Costumers’ Manifesto.
Long list of links about headdresses on a FB page, from Joei Reed of the North Carolina Costumers Society.
This Montreal based samba costumer sells frames for headdresses, bras and backpack style wing anchors.
Things to attach to your headdress:
This Etsy site, Pegassus22, has loose feathers and pre-made feathered accents
Beads – If you are able to get to downtown Los Angeles, go to Athenian Fashions. Very nice people, good selection.
if not try ArtBeads or one of the hundreds of bead stores online (if you have another recommendation let me know).
