Octopus Hairpiece by deeed Octopus Hairpiece by deeed
I am selling miniature versions of this octopus as hair fascinators. You can buy a premade one from my Etsy store: www.etsy.com/au/shop/CuriousCe…
Or note me if you are interested in a custom one!

When I went to a recent Steampunk Ball I didn't think my outfit looked very intricate, so I decided to spruce it up with a funky wig. In the end I used one of Arda's Candy Stripers (Dryad) and made a hairpiece to sit atop it (using pumpkin wefts). Turned out pretty good!

If you want to know how I made it, check out my WIP shots here.
Close-up photos can be found here.

These photos were taken by the talented Gillian B Dragancaor.


Edit 1: To those asking, I'm afraid it wasn't intentionally a Victoria and Otto cosplay (although I can certainly see how it would work as one). I was fascinated by the idea of old-fashioned sea-monsters attacking ships, particularly giant squid and octopuses, so I wanted to do something in that theme. I ran out of time for a ship so just made the octopus. The wig colour was picked essentially because it was sea-green and matched my green dress.
