I like working with fabric, sequins and feathers *almost* as much as I love working with fresh flowers. My ideal evening is crafting in front of old Party of Five reruns.
I used a luxe brocade fabric for the mask form, black and purple dyed ostrich feathers, peacock feathers, and black tulle accented with swarovski crystal beads. The finishing touch: flirty feather eyelashes!
Angel wanted a black and white vintage glam look for her mask.
It features silk dupioni, faux anenomes (her fav flower!), white ostrich feathers, black marabou feathers, and sequins galore. Her finishing touch was the swarovski crystal tear drops on the inner eye.
The best part of the evening: watching Angel drive through Beverly Hills wearing her crazy mask, with the feathers flapping in the wind (as other drivers stared in confusion). Priceless! That girl has no shame.
These masks would be the PERFECT quirky prop for wedding pictures. Almost as awesome as those mustaches on sticks that people seem to be rocking lately 🙂 I can also imagine donning one of these at a New Year’s Eve or bachelorette party. Could you pull off one of these flambouyantly fabulous masks?
