debut :: Kentucky Derby 2006

notes:: I didn't make the hat, just decorated it. Hats are a big deal at the Kentucky Derby; if you've seen My Fair Lady, you may remember the extravagant headwear in the Ascot scene. Kind of the same deal.

I wound up doing all the decorating in the hotel room (hot glue gun usage in a hotel WITHOUT a convention?). Everything on the hat except the striped ribbon are items I stockpiled on clearance or leftover from another project. I made the striped ribbon roses and also "made" the larger white roses from tulle and remnant petals from the roses I took apart for my Frontiers AYA crown.
