Cut my shapes out of worbla. Used the heat gun to form the flat circles into rounded caps and curve the mockingjay emblems to the caps.

Cut the corners off apprx. 18″ of netting. Used a running stitch clockwise from corner A to corner B and gathered to form a birdcage veil.

Used hot glue to assemble:  Attach the mockingjay emblems to the felt caps, then attached the birdcage veil underneath and used ribbon to cover the edges, then attached alligator clips to either side.

Note: You can get plain alligator clips- I just happened to have these ones,  which are meant for hair accessories that can also be worn as pins, left over from another project.

Catwoman Fascinator Cocktail Hat

I made this Catwoman cocktail hat as a raffle prize for Jack of All Nerds podcast.

The custom fascinator was raffled off at the Nerds Like Us midnight showing of Tim Burton’s Batman Returns!

This was my first hat modeled after Michelle Pfieffer’s Catwoman, because duh she’s awesome. I used clear acrylic spray paint on painted worbla to get a shiny vinyl look and painted the stitches with silver liquid leaf.
