1930's Inspired Velvet Turban Cocktail Hat & Golden "Flapper" Scarf
I was just fooling around the other day with different hat shapes and such while designing, and had worked up a very elegantly styled looking black Turban Hat with lovely Velvet Floral Shapes. I wasn't sure what to accent the turban with, but I had recently seen an old movie (can't remember which one) where in the background of a scene, a women extra had on an evening styled cocktail hat that had these wild looking feathers falling over just one side of her head piece. I was really breathtaking. So, with a little inspiration from the movie, and my imagination, I decided to go very formal with the turban. My choice of raven colored feathers, that pop out from behind the back of the turban, and flow just over the top, makes the hat more appealing and look more out of the Deco period. This is a unique piece.

Hair~ I've been using Hot Sticks, and been loving the results, but here I've pinned my longer locks to the nape of my neck, and pinned my front locks just to the sides, to create the look of a flapper's bob hair style.
