still expensive...but, looks amazing!!

you could use a felt cocktail hat as a base covered with fosshape for a beautiful effect!

i think after christmas...i'm going to have to give it a try!!

this woman on etsy has great stuff!!

OK....I am just gobsmacked at all of those! Rebecca (Hello lovely lovely girl! Miss you!) That lovely headdress, how do they stay on?!?? If I can figure out the base, then I think I'm on my way! I notice there are no under chin straps! How do they stay on for a whole evening? Does anyone have any underside pix? Links to bases? Patterns for bases? Our face paint heads seem to be smaller than a real head, how do you form the start of a headpiece and make sure it fits all the models?!?? I really have to have something done for my models by february!!! Been looking online and starting to feel overwhelmed! LOL I did find this as a base, but not sure any of these are quite 'it'!!
I want height, but I am more looking for impact, not super huge or heavy. *sigh*

I'm on a super limited budget and it will be mostly dark inside so no huge pretty ostritch feathers for me! We're going to be doing the dollar store dance! LOL Hmmm....I haven't googled for renting, but I am pretty specific for what I need....

hey kim sweetie!!

i take two head bands and hot glue them together

then...i cover them with styrofoam, all from the dollar store.

now, this is where it gets compulsive...lol!!!

all through the year i buy things i think would work well in headpieces!!

i have crates full of stuff!! omg;(

this is a great time to shop

right after christmas...go to target and buy lots of cheap shiny bobs;)

other great places to shop after the 25th,
joann's,
michael's,
goodwill,
99 cent srore,
you get the idea;)

funny...about 3 years ago i sold my head pieces at fabaic in the silly farm booth for 25.00, and i only sold 10 pieces?

alex hansen will make a custom head piece for you for between 80.00 and 100.00 and they are great!!

last fabaic i bought my headpiece from alex;)

i don't have a pic of the underside, and i don't have one made up right now to take a pic.

i usually let my model keep the head piece;)

so...i'll attach a few pics.

they stay on well...no chin strap, and no problems so far;)
just remember to use light weight items

will i see you in may??

love you sweetie!!!

By headband you mean one of those that goes from ear to ear across the top of the head, not an elastic band that goes around right?

http://www.wonderflexworld.com/request-a-sample/
they are going to get FLOODED with requests for samples. I just hope it's not 2 inches by 2 inches. Sad

I am teaching at FABAIC in May! But I need a new headshot! (Ick!) So it will be awesome to see you again!

Well thank you all with special thanks to Rebecca and Michelle!! Oh heck! Everyone has been beyond helpful! I am still a bit skeptical about my abilities but facing the fear and finding some options has made my 'feet frozen to the floor in fear and panic' into 'mild dread and cold feet, but moving forward!'. Still unsure about how to get it all to stick and/or stand, but more optomistic now that it's gonna happen!! Promise to post more quesitons here AND to keep you updated and post pix as I go!!

XXXOOO

OK! Much of the materials are either purchased and waiting or winging it's way here from parts of china and USA to me for creative assembly! I have headbands, and styrofoam. Wondering if they styrofoam I have will hold up! When I poke something into styro, do I just poke, glue, poke to stick? How am I making sure it holds up to the whole evening's wear and tear?? Just checking to see if I am missing a step! Am I covering the styrofoam with cloth or something first???

Thanks Rebecca. I'm thinking I should start small with some flowered clips and headbands. I used to be more fun like this when I was a kid...I think being the mommy chased it out of me! Smile

Denice, after having twins I wondered if I would ever be creative again or if I'd go around bug eyed with my tongue hanging out forever!
lol!

Kim, if what you're 'poking' into styrofoam is light and you're not re-positioning, it doesn't usually need stabilizing. I guess it depends on what the models will be doing...if it's a dance number then stabilization will be important Smile The peacock feather headpiece is on styrofoam I wired to a headband.

Don't spray paint styrofoam...it 'eats' it. Spray on glitter glue too...must be the aerosol. I learned that the hard way!

Have fun!
