Bonnets, mini toy soldier hats and a contest!

I know a lot of lolitas love hats, myself included. For the past 3 years I've been dedicating a good portion of my life learning how to make them, and my interest started with lolita! Now, somehow, I'm making hats full time. I still have a long way to go though.

There is a contest right now for millinery (hat making) and the winner could win an internship with legendary milliner Stephen Jones in London (he makes the hats for Commes des Garcons, Vivienne Westwood, Dior, etc). It would really mean a lot if you could check out my link and vote for my entry (which isn't lolita at all, really - it's a black top hat with octopus tentacles spilling out of the top :D).

You can vote with Facebook, Twitter, or text: TH BY34XF to: 75572 (US) - you can vote 3 times, once with each method!

I only need 300 votes to make it into the top 10 and increase my chances of being chosen to win - it would be so awesome if I could learn from a legend and improve my skills even more! Also - voting ends in 4 hours!!!

Here is the link to my entry: http://www.talenthouse.com/creativeinvites/preview/ab6022b368dbebd312b722f43e40a695/239

Thank you so much for taking a look!



Here is a crazy/awesome bonnet made by Stephen Jones:



And a recent bonnet by me (huge pics, sorry!):




Also I've been threatening to make a little majorette/toy soldier/military hat inspired by AP Holy Night Story for a while, and here it is:


A different one:




(A few friends of mine suggested that I post this here, but if it's too OT/doesn't belong feel free to delete it.)
