Octopus Hairpiece by deeed Octopus Hairpiece by deeed

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.

I love how well octopi and steampunk work well together, although as much as I love Victoria and Otto, I don't think the combination has to be limited to those two characters.

Agreed! It's very curious how the species is intertwined in the fashion/fandom. Doesn't seem very closely related at a glance but somehow it works!

Wow this is so imaginative and clever. And skillfully executed too! Well deserved DD, in my opinion. Congratulations.
