Octopus Hairpiece

Taking custom orders!
I am selling miniature versions of this octopus as hair fascinators. You can buy a premade one from my Etsy store:…
Or note me if you are interested in a colour of your choice!

When I went to a recent Steampunk Ball I didn't think my outfit looked very intricate, so I decided to spruce it up with a funky wig. In the end I used one of Arda's Candy Stripers (Dryad) and made a hairpiece to sit atop it (using pumpkin wefts). Turned out pretty good!

If you want to know how I made it, check out my WIP shots here.
Close-up photos can be found here.

These photos were taken by the talented Gillian B Dragancaor.

Edit 1: To those asking, I'm afraid it wasn't intentionally a Victoria and Otto cosplay (although I can certainly see how it would work as one). I was fascinated by the idea of old-fashioned sea-monsters attacking ships, particularly giant squid and octopuses, so I wanted to do something in that theme. I ran out of time for a ship so just made the octopus. The wig colour was picked essentially because it was sea-green and matched my green dress.

So glad you like it! Unfortunately this is a bit too big and heavy for posting overseas but I do have smaller fascinators occasionally. If you keep an eye on my shop, I'll post when new custom slots become available.…
