Those who don't eat, throw cake.

Acid Girls - Lightworks OFFICIAL VIDEO dir. Steven Ilous from Steven Ilous on Vimeo.

A couple weeks ago, I may or may not have told my friend Felicia I would make her a nautical Lolita hat. I knew I was in way over my head the second I uttered the words. As luck would have it, I stummbled upon a lightweight copper ship at an antique shop in Cambria. Being excited over the prospect of creating a Rococo-inspired hat, I spent a good part of last night doing research on Elisabethan fashion. While googling keywords such as "Marie Antoinette ship hat" and " nautical Lolita fashion", I found this awesome video from Acid Girls. It's sort of my visual anthem for this project. Enjoy!
