I just saw this beautiful girl on my walk to class! I love her message and that she is willing to stand in the rain for what she believes in. #stopculturalappropriation

** EDIT** Hello! I’m so glad this is getting so much attention!!  I was just messaged this and wanted to share with you all who are interested:

This makes me feel a little like a disney villain (Jafar maybe) but I also feel super regal, so I dig it!

I’m so happy with how this turned out. And I really loved working on it. I like the challenge of figuring out how to make something based off a picture, and when it actually works out that’s a bonus.

It’s made from felt weight interfacing, wire, and quilt batting which is covered with velvet, damask print jacquard, and brocade. I used glass beads, fake pearls, and a glass montee for decoration. 

I have a blog post all about making it posted here. Better photos will be up when I finish the dress that goes with it!
