Announcement   All items in my shop are READY TO SHIP! Woot woot! However please do let me know what date you need your headdress to arrive so that I can make sure to use the correct shipping option :-) Message me if you have any questions!

LAYAWAY: Many of my items are one of a kind. If you are interested in an item and would like to create a layaway plan, a minimum payment of $50 is due upfront and the remaining payments can be split up to suit your individual needs. Please message me to set up a layaway plan! Thanks!

I sometimes re-create past pieces, based on material availability. I take a veeeery limited number of custom orders, inquire if you have something in mind! I love hearing people's fun ideas, so if there is something you want that you don't see in my shop let me know and I may just be inspired to create it for you!

Pricing: All my pieces are priced based on the cost of the materials and the time involved in making them. I make two kinds of hats: Assemblage hat and Foam Fabrication. Assemblage Hats are created with beautiful materials I source, which are then arranged in decadent and delicious ways! Foam fabrication is the process of patterning out designs, cutting them out of foam, gluing them together, priming and painting them, then embellishing them. Because of this the foam projects take way way longer and are therefor more pricey $$ :-))))) Hope this helps make sense of the variation of pricing in my shoppe!

About

Theatrical Headdresses of the Hand Made Vegan Variety

One fall long ago, I was without work and ordering what to do with my life. I stayed up many long nights pondering this question, turning the possibilities over in my head. I fell asleep and dreamt of the first hat style I ever created, which was a tiny asymmetrical top hat. The pattern, construction process and visions of the completed hat all came to me that night. I woke up the next morning and made my first batch of 13, which I put up online and immediately sold! I was so excited I made more and more, expanding into small fascinators and other accessories.

Once my interest in haberdashery was sparked I wanted to expand my repertoire. My pieces went from tiny to huge and back again. I have created everything form mohawks to sculptural foam pony headdresses to etherial vegan crowns. I love taking classes to learn new skills and expand the scope of what I can create, making it possible to envision the most exquisite things and actualize them!

Recently I have acquired a passion for Foam Fabrication, which is the process of taking flat sheets of foam and creating unique shapes out of them. I love it because the hats are super light weight and you can literally create anything you want~! I teach classes as well, which I announce on my Facebook business page:

I have an ongoing photo project called Deck Of Hats (DeckOfHats.Tumblr.com) which in which I create ever MORE outlandish creations and photograph them with my trusty makeup artist, Alexia Petre. We have been working on the project for 2 years and will be creating an entire deck of cards upon completion of all 54 cards- jokers included!!!

    I started creating hats in the fall of 2008, starting off with tiny asymmetrical top hats and evolving into more theatrical pieces over the years. My most recent love is foam fabrication and vegan headdresses!
