Steampunk Hat Progress
This is the hat that I’ve been busy beavering away on over the past three or so weeks. My ‘Steampunk persona’, Prof. Hazel Augusta Leveret, is a naturalist, adventurer and collector of natural history specimens, so it goes without saying that her hat would have to reflect this.
Some people might recognise this hat as the one I wore as part of the ‘Joker’s Daughter’ outfit. It was purple but has since had many carefully applied layers of brown fabric paint added. Why did I not just dye it? I wanted a rough, rustic sort of texture and I wouldn’t have achieved that with normal dye. This has been wire brushed and sealed.
The ribbons have been overlapped in a way that leaves gaps for objects to be wedged in and secured with glue. The ‘insect print’ ribbon was a neat find (not that you can see the damn thing clearly here!)
Other items include the goggles (chosen because they look like an ornithologist’s binoculars), large vintage pink dahlias, roses and a branch with golden leaves, feathers, brass cogs, dyed trailing ribbon, rib bone and small dried pine cones.The rabbit/hare ears are faux fur that has been airbrushed with wire inside to make them posable.
There’s much still to do; I have more feathers to add, cogs to sew on, an inner rip to repair and possibly a shard of antler to add, but other than that, my character’s elements are beginning to take shape!
