Oberon’s Crown

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.

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. 🙂
