So, what HAVE I been doing as far as tabistry goes lately? Well, I made a quick small hat for the Sky Commodore's Autumn Masquerade Ball a weekend ago.
Finally a hat to match my blue/tan corset. Yep, another hat! I'd been pondering what style of hat would look nice with it. As I mention on my general craft blog (mieljolie.blogspot.com), most of this outfit was stuff I'd already made or found like the corset and underskirts, but I managed to make the new tabistry hat to match my corset and a gold overskirt and sleeves. And, I pinned the straps from the corset as a decoration on the skirt.
The hat is small and was pretty easy to get made in time. I finished it in under two days. :) More than I can say for the overskirt, which I'm still not happy with. But, alas, that is a story for my other blog. I used a gold shoelace attached to the inside to tie and keep the hat on my head.
Since this was a masquerade ball, I was going to make a new mask to match my corset, but I decided to just wear my old one instead. I think I wore it all of one song before taking the mask off anyway. I just don't like having things on my face. Here it was just before it came off for good that night.
I'm working on some other costuming and stuff. And, I try to work on the tutorials whenever I have spare time, so new tabistry projects just aren't getting done right now. Among other things, I would like to get another top hat made, and I'm trying to start a new corset for a fairy costume. We'll see if it gets out of my head and into the world. Until then, be Can-TAB-ulous!
