A ship as a hat: Set sail!

Men's Hat Tricorn Ship

They say you get a chance when you’re not thinking about it. That’s what happened to me once at the great festival of the black scene in Leipzig, the Wave Gotik Treffen. As it happened, I met my favourite mead seller (my favourite place to go for years has been a stall at the Moritzbastei) on the way from one festival location to the next on the tram. Without knowing that I make hats, he told me he needed a big ship’s hat but didn’t know where to find something special like that. I offered to make him his very own custom ship’s hat. We met again later at the Sixtina, an absintheria in Leipzig’s city centre, to discuss all the details. I immediately set to work!

Wave Gothic Festival 2016

Anticipation is the most – well, you know.

This year I’ve been looking forward to seeing Pentecost finally approaching and the Wave Gothic meeting begins. I had plenty of time to think about my style this year and to put my ideas into practice. For the “Jübiläums-Festival”, the WGT went over the stages of the city of Leipzig for the 25th time in 2016, the costume was to be particularly elaborate. So I was looking forward to our overnight guests from Bamberg and Wittenberg. Of course, we were all very curious to see what the event schedule would look like. So the five-day black party could almost begin!  Continue reading Wave Gothic Festival 2016

Faunauge’s Bridal Fascinator at Creative World 2016

Handmade bridal hair ornaments consisting of cotton flowers, silver wire and feathers

You know what it’s like: newsletter after newsletter trickles into your inbox and spam folder day and night. Sometimes, however, there is something useful in it. This was the case in late autumn 2015, when I received an advertisement for the world’s largest creative fair in Frankfurt am Main, Creative World. It had a special section: “Hatmaker”. You could send in any kind of hat. As it happens, the deadline was only 14 days away. For me, that meant: GO NOW, HURRY!

Vintage shooting with Julia Seyfarth Design

Ready for taking pictures

I first worked with the lovely and creative Julia Seyfarth in 2017. I was going monochrome for a long time, black and white, a few coloured details at most. But through Julia’s influence and her vintage fashion in bright colours, I was inspired to create new radiant creations. Exciting fascinators were created, for which I learned traditional fabric folding techniques and adapted them for myself. Julia provided me with her fabric cuts and I made perfectly fitting headdresses. What was still missing was a proper vintage shooting …
