Finally, Pictures!

All righty then, here are some pictures of my ongoing project.

Please remember that it is not finished yet, and that Lucy, the Long Suffering Foam Head, is still covered in yellow duct tape. I will have to spiff her up in order to display the coif better.

(And I am sure she will love it.)

And if you want to see the full album, here it is.

And now, back to working on the rest of the project.

Thank you very much. More pics to come as progress is made. Loops were added last night to thread the ties through :-D

*droool* That's gorgeous!

I love the embroidery design! It's beautiful!

How did you decide on doing the lining? I have an embroidered coif in my future so I'm trying to see how others have done it. :)

Actually, I am making a smaller, separate lining that I am planning on just tacking to the inside of the coif with a running stitch. Basically the same pattern, but cut slightly smaller.

The theory behind this is that it will give me the protection that I need for my embroidery, while making it very easy to detach when it needs to be washed :-)

If you are going to Coronation, I can show it to you.

I won't be at Coronation. :(

That's what I was thinking about doing for lining mine. I just wanted to see what you had come up with to.

Because I'm not going to plop my raw embroidery on my head. :)

Tell you what. I'll take pictures and post them here so you can see what I'm talking about.

It's really very simple, but I think it solves the lining problem and since it really doesn't leave any trace of it when removed, it might explain the unlined, unmarked extant coifs :-)

I will also be uploading all of this to my webpage with explanations on how to do it :-)

Excellent! Thank you!

Also, I can see that great minds think alike :-D

you want to borrow my head?
"Genevive" is a long neck wig form with a painted face.

Are you showing it at coronation?
Aug. 31st, 2007 03:34 pm (UTC)
Thanks! Let me see if I have time to cover Lucy. If not, I'll give you a call tonight to borrow Genevive :-)

Very nice! I'm sorry I didn't get to see it at Coronation, but I didn't get to see anything - not even my apprentice's display!

The lining option sounds about right - that's pretty much what I do with mine, since the lining is hemmed and sewn seperately, then attached to the outside with a tiny running stitch, and only covers the embroidery.

Thanks! And don't worry about not having time to get to see it. It was a very busy event and it is difficult to get to see anything when you are being pulled in all directions.

Your apprentice's display, by the way, was very nice :-)
