Another huge showgirl/burlesque headpiece i've been making..

For the past month i've been working on this burlesque headpiece for  a Finnish blonde bombshell... I might have gone a little bit crazy with the detail, but it came out fabulous. I can't  show it to you yet, since i never post photos on my finished creations before my customers have shown them to the world. It's their premier ;) 
This one will be seen on the Helsinki Burlesque Fesival this weekend! 

The Amazing Atelieri O.Haapala at Vapriikki Vintage

 Few weks ago in Vapriikki, Tampere. The wonderful Atelieri O.Haapala! I can't get enough of their photos and the beautiful backdrops they paint themselfs! 
Here's me in my HC vintage look (actually a find from a theatre fleamarket so not really that old. The shirt is second hand and shoes are real vintage leather boots, early 1900) and in the pic below me and my dear friend Ane, a.k.a. burlesque performer Pepper Sparkles.
See all the photos from Vapriikki on Atelieris facebook page.

"A story of a love affair between a human and a robotic being."

"At Milk, Chromat’s ‘Bionic Bodies’ range was all about humanoids having trysts. There were chromatic armored bras, gladiatorial references, sheer fabrics with cool cut-outs and futuristic femmes fatales strewn with LEDs."

I'm loving this piece at New York Fashion Week! Designer Becca McCharen.
