Exotic showgirl headpiece for burlesque starlet Cherry Dee

My latest big burlesque piece for the super sweet Cherry Dee (a.k.a. The freelancer with the fashionblog ;)! (Oh, don't mind the mess, my table always looks like that when im working on a huge piece...) There's lots of details, as usual. Mere volume does not do it for me, just huge amount of feathers or flowers makes it look big, but you need details to make it look interesting.

Tassels. Covered with Swarovski diamonds adn beads.

In the making. Base of the headpiece is buckram and millinery wire. Covered with sequin fabric, ribbon appliques and glass beads and Swarovski chrystals.

The huge banana leafs are detachable and can be used as fans.
