DIY flower headband

8.5.13

Bonjour!

Yehey for my first DIY post! 

Last May 4 i attended a cosplay event as Emily the Corpse Bride.
And for the cosplay, I made the whole costume. So here is how I made the floral headband.
SUPER EASY, MUST SHARE. This is one of the pieces of her costume which i was so relieved about since everything went smoothly.

My bestfriends during the project:
long nose pliers
cutting pliers
scissors


Assorted fake flowers. I got them at Cebu Fashion House in Colon. I chose to use smaller ones.


Let's begin!
So this is no rocket science. The flowers have wire stems, so start twisting them into the headband. To  make them tight, use the long nose pliers. I like to apply them one color at a time with spaced intervals.

And just keep adding more flowers until they get crowded

And keep adding and adding.



Since this was for the corpse bride, the flowers have to appear dead and blue. For the last step, I bathed the headband in concentrated blue fabric dye for 2 hours. These fake flowers were made out of fabric anyway.

Finished result with costume:






This was at Cosmaze Carnival, J-Centre Mall. 
Japanese cosplayer Reika was also there!!!


That's all :)


Twala!
