Beaded lolita crown
Post By Static. 08/08/09, 02:33 pm

So tonight was my first attempt at making a beaded ELG crown for a Queen of Hearts costume.





We got to Spotlight about five minutes before they closed, so I just grabbed the first red things I saw - I don't like these hearts, they look a bit naff. Not to mention my fake!heart at the top, lol. But, it's done now, and I know for next time! What do you guys think? With better beads, would this look acceptable? Also without the bit of exposed silver wire at the bottom, lol...I used black for the top parts, but couldn't be bothered re-doing the bottom XP

Critique please!

Is it heavy? Will it fall off?

Will I need to tilt my head at a weird angle to get it to balance properly? 8D

Do like.

I'm putting it on a comb so it'll slide into your hair and stay there - it has a bit of weight to it, but not too much. :) I have big plans for you, babe!

with better beads it would definitely be acceptable.
although the wire looks like its bent out of shape in some places too.

or is that just the photo?

Hmm, been trying to find pictures of guys with crowns. But I have a funny feeling that we don't wear crowns any more bah. Not even Ouji style wear crowns as far as I can see. Guess I'll stick with the top hat idea lol.

nooo, Reno.
