    Isn’t it astounding how incredibly talented people are? Are you familiar with Isabelle de Borchgrave? She does the most exquisite paper creations. The Legion of Honor Museum just mounted an exhibition, ‘Pulp Fashion’ – that I blogged about last week. It’s fabulous – and you should definitely try to visit if you haven’t already!

    Hi Katie,
    The genius behind this project is Amy Flurry – former Lucky magazine fashion editor, writer etc. I have met her and she is busy consulting for other creative minds and writing a book. Learn more at amyflurry.com

    those are genius!!

    it’s amazing (and exhausting)to think that stylish women used to have their hair styled like that or would have their heads shaved in order to wear wigs that were every bit as intricate as those pieces.

    someone needs to do a museum exhibit along the lines of Tortured & Teased: The Art of Hair Design

    I was actually thinking about making one of these (although perhaps not quite so large) for a Halloween costume! I made a mad scientist wig for my husband from paper this year. It is very, very dramatic, cheap, and surprisingly easy!
