You can burn a syrofoam cup and hold the fluffs in the smoke, the black stuff in the smoke will color the fluffs nicely, and darn near look like the real fluffs.

FINALLY A PICTURE!

here ya go. I think I need to work on the tips a little bit. and unfortunately i dont have a rear shot b/c my husband erased it from the digital camera. What do you think? They look just like my whitetail plumes that I had before only fuller. Any polite constructive criticism is more than welcome!

yeah I did. they are the longest most inconspicuous thing I could find, plus they look better than wire. I haven't wrapped them yet though.
What would make them look better?

i don't think they would be too tall, if it looks too tall behind your crown, you could just upgrade to a pope crown :D

Seriously how much of the skewer did you use? Also did you take some of the skewer off before adding the boa?

those look good! You could probably wrap some leather at the end and bead the ends.

I'm gonna go try it now. :)

Cool

Pics look great!

I'm working on a bonnet for my cousin right now, and this would be a great idea for fuller, filler fluffs.(say that 10 times fast)
will post pics of finished product within 2 weeks.

Wow, those look great. I'm gonna be on a boa mission now. My nieces are always wanting plumes and I think these would do great!! And wrapping the skewers with thread wouldn't be hard, especially with that fuzzy thread. I can't wait to try some.

Now, how did you attach them to your barrette? Are those faceted beads separating them?

Awkay, I bought a feather boa and I am going to try this out. I hope it turns out like yours, they are so pretty and fluffy.

My boo wanted me to wear just the boa and do a dance, I told him shaaaaa, thats for plumes. :Hammer

Nevermind. You probably got him to wear it and strip to "Macho Macho Man".
