Binka, from Riga, Latvia, brings you her magnificent beaded epaulettes at binkaminka. This one stood out for me l, with its “come hither” sparkles, and “stay away” spikes – exquisitely expressing the concept of contrast I love so much.
Y’know, I pretty much had this exact same headband, bought from a department store in the UK for £50. I had the opportunity to wear it exactly once – during a visit to the Montreal Burlesque Festival – before, in a hungover stupor, leaving it in our hotel. I called the front desk after realizing my utmost idiocy, but of course I never saw it again. Especially because it was with a beautiful set of black feathered wings. I hope the cleaner who stole my two favorite costume items, had them stolen from her as well! Or that they broke nearly immediately. 😉
So I’m seriously considering replacing the headband and righting that egregious wrong. 🙂
When i was a teen living in the suburbs of Toronto *shudder*, One of the few bright spots was attending the annual Medieval Festival in the summer (before they stopped coming out this Far). One of the vebdors had neat little head accessories – lile horns. Had my own for a long time, till I lost them. Ever since, I’ve had an affinity for horn accessories. These ones are a little more on the “LOOK AT ME NOW!!!!” side than the pair I had, bit they’re cool nonetheless!
