follow anitM's advice and beat it against the wall. If nothing falls off, then it's safe for the playa.

On that note, i simply love this thing. Can't wait to see pics of the full head dress

You can make those look real with a tool called a hair blade tool - available at any place that sells leather working stuff.

I have pics of some done up that way floating around the boards here but am having trouble finding the post. I think it's in either One item for BM a day or the Costume and crafting help thread.

thks all , I looked up the tool , it does make them look good. But Ill keep it simple , the hat underneath was a goodwill item , and the beaded front piece was a belt at good will. The white strips hanging in the front are from a old santa hat. The leather I had from makeing motorcycle seats , and the delron strips for the quills my boss at work gave to me .

SO CREATIVE.

This is my favorite: when someone sees the potential in random objects, and makes something new and amazing, especially for little money (although I don't know how much the leather cost!) Just wonderful.

Not much of a headress/feather person, but your set up is mad gangsta, as we like to say in suburban Denver

thks, I like to make something out of nothing :) The leather was left over from makeing motorcycles seats , so it was free cause the seats made enough money to pay for the leather.
