Voodoo Tophat by zeloco Voodoo Tophat by zeloco
I can't believe I haven't submitted this yet.
Anyway.. I did a steampunk-ish voodoo mini tophat. It has pretty much everything on it - lace, ribbons, ivory, wood, seashells, faux hair and leather etc... Pretty much made it out of scrap materials and old stuff I had lying around.

Unless you put live bees in it somewhere, I don't see how anyone wouldn't be thrilled with this. :giggle:

Oh my, looks like a triple-threat here: it's tiny, it's a tophat, and it's voodoo! Are you trying to drive the people mad?!

Awesome work!

Awesome :D *steals it* :evillaugh: Muwahahahahahaha

Seriously, though... I truly love it. For some odd reason it's kinda got a Pirates of the Caribbean 2 feel to it (to me). Great use of materials :love:

did you use leather to make the actual tophat?
Reply
:iconzeloco:
zeloco Featured By Owner Feb 12, 2010  Professional General Artist
the inside is cardboard and i used wire to shape the brim.
And it's faux leather (pleather), I don't support use of animal skins (only second-hand).
Hope this helps :)

You just have to take each fabric's characteristics into account. if it's a stretchy fabric, thick one, sheer or whatever. You can even layer them to make awesome effects (like lace over striped fabric etc).
