The internet loves octopuses! I was busy sewing when my friends showed me this:
io9.com/this-is-the-ultimate-i…

I read io9 everyday!

For anyone who's found my gallery from their article, hello! Thank you for popping by! Please feel free to ask me any questions if you want to have a go making your own octopus fascinator. Or if you have any questions about commissioning one, then that's more than welcome too. XD

I'm planning to have a shoot soon with another hairpiece I made. Actually this one is the original idea I had but ran out of time to make for that particular event. Hope you'll keep an eye out for it! (to my FB friends, you've already seen it so no surprise there sorry).

IMPORTANT NOTE!

I don't want people to get confused if they're thinking of buying one from me. The ones I sell are smallish (approx 4 inches for the body with the ringlets extending another 5 inches down). They look like this: deeed.deviantart.com/art/FOR-S…

At least one article I know has said they look like my much larger piece (deeed.deviantart.com/art/Octop…) but this is not the case.

I absolutely adore the octopus fascinators. I've faved your shop on Etsy, and once your waiting list opens up a bit I will be looking at ordering!

My wife wanted me to ask you if you have considered making a jellyfish version of your awesome wig clips. Awesome work!

Thank you very much! Actually a friend did ask me if it'd be possible to make a jellyfish. No trouble doing the bell-body, although do you think just having straight hair for the stinging tentacles would be too dull? Hmm, maybe lots of thinner curls?

Forgive me for butting in, but in my personal opinion, jellyfish ones would look awesome with both curly (or crimped) and long straight tentacles together.

A combination huh? I'll have to do some tests!

She says she thinks a mixture of thinner curls would be really nice looking. Perhaps consider some crimping or a different color tone of wig fibers for the tentacles? Either way it'd look amazing

Ooo good idea! When I get a chance to experiment I'll try that out. :D
