(Last three photos care of RAW Media, 2012 - PLEASE look at those pictures as they are a more accurate representation of how this headdress will fit than the at-home shots on the little foam bust.)

Materials: Javelina skin, deerskin, African and American porcupine quills, shell jingles, javelina legskin

Description: This is a piece that I created for my very first fashion show in July 2012, and I'm making it available to you now! The last three pictures show the headdress in action, if you're curious; the first two are just quick at-home detail pics.

I made this headdress from a javelina cape that I got from a taxidermist; I reshaped it and added a "veil" of chocolate brown deerskin leather in the back. On the cape I stitched one of the javelina's legskins, as well as over 30 large African porcupine quills and some smaller American porcupine quills as well. The little brown disks are painted shell from a vintage purse I salvaged; they make a lovely jingling sound to go along with the light click of the quills. Strong deerskin straps hold this surprisingly lightweight headdress on securely.

There's a LOT of work put into this headdress; the quills were literally a pain to stitch in as they still have pointy ends (though Tanuja, the lovely model who wore the headdress in the show, reported no problems when wearing it). But it was totally worth it, and the pictures don't do this headdress justice at all! Javelina hides are very hard to come by, too, so this is a very unusual and rare piece; if it's something you like, now's the time to jump on it!
