Showing off a few headbands I finished :)

Follow the cut! Gothic. Classic. Punk. Wa-Loli. And just for fun, help me come up with some coord ideas for these! :)

Hey ladies! I thought that I would show you a few headbands I've been working on the past week. :) I'm working like a machine. I've actually got 10 or so, but here are the ones I took picture of tonight. My camera isn't the best quality, so forgive me. 
Black Widow Rosette Headband (Gothic)
 
Made with a black satin headband, cinched dark red satin rosettes, and a glass pearl fixed in the center of each. Main Concern: I know somebody is going to criticize the use of satin, so I'll go ahead and ask now. They shiny-ness is not as severe as it appears in the photo, its a lot darker and neutralized in real life. But, should I start using the non-gloss underside of the fabric from now on, if I'm to make more of these? The satin has kind of grown on me, I feel as if it were more royal looking. But I know how satin is the scrutiny of the lolita community, lol :P

Next: Tartan & Pearls (Punk)

Plaid synthetic rosettes, with three glass pearls fixed in, on a thin headband. I've never tried a punk lolita coord before, maybe this is a first step? xD I just wish I had more tartan fabric to make a jumperskirt!

And then: Lilac Duchess Floral Headband (Classic?)

Floral print rosettes, with a white button securing the flower in the center, on a black band. Good for a classic look? :)

Last but not least: Some wa-lolita inspired headbands. I cinched these out of some really lovely koi-print fabric. I tested it out with one on an off-white headband, one on a white band. Which do you think looks better? :D

Well, I had fun sharing these with you guys! :) I'm just worried that these headbands are too basic for lolita, since most are used to the traditional headdresses, and head-eating bows. I wanted to try something flowery and fun. Gimme some feedback on these pieces! And if you have any coord ideas for any of them, it'd be fun to hear it! :D Thank you!
