vegan “feather” headband alternative
May 25, 2010
As I’ve discussed in previous posts, finding vegan feather alternatives can be difficult. I was reading through my friend’s blog, Atomic Bettie, when I came across a site she had linked to about Martha Stewart Halloween ideas. (side note: Atomic Bettie also runs a pretty sweet vintage clothing store on etsy you should check out if that is your thang) I figured that burlesque incorporates many costume aspects, so I might as well have a look to see if anything could be adapted for the burlesque stage.
Then I found the bat headband. Although it might seem like a bit of a stretch I question how different is the feather look from the bat headband idea?
Okay, sure, one looks like bats, but if you are talented with a pair of scissors, there is no reasons those bas couldn’t become more feather like! Add some black birdcage veil material on top and in the front and you’d be set! Directions on how to make the bat headband can be found here. And hey, if feather/bats aren’t your thing, you could always go for rats instead…
