As some already know, Sparkle Jane (daughter) dances ballet. Each spring her company puts on a large show. In the past I have helped with costumes in a variety of ways, but my specialty is headpieces.
Ballet headpieces are a tricky thing: they have to look good; they can’t be heavy; they have to stay on…you get the idea.
This year they are performing Midsummer’s Night’s Dream. Oberon, the fairy king, needs a crown. But he is a FAIRY king, so it can’t be just any crown.
The creative process is cluttered and a little messy looking… (don’t you love my salad bowl doubling as a form foundation)
Give me enough lace, spray paint and hot glue and I am bound to create something.
It has elastic built in the back to help the fit.
Hopefully it will hold up to the dancing also.
Yay for another finished product. Now I can mostly rest easy until the performance. Unless something else comes up. 🙂
