    I've never, in my life, seen a bustle made out of natural turkey feathers that I thought looked nice or even decent. They all look cheezy to me. My suggestion would be to use something else for your bustle. The only time turkey feathers look good on a bustle is when white or black turkey spikes are used on fancy dance hackle bustles. Other than that...not so much.
    I think everyone on this rez is addicted to Harry Potter...lol...

      what if you just tried making something traditional from it, or use it as a wall decoration?

        So, what was the final outcome? Did you take pictures of the finished product?

          But it's hard to answer without more information. A few years ago, I made a turkey tail bustle. I made a wire frame, and then sewed the feathers to the wire frame. It actually worked out pretty well, but it was a lot of work. I'm not sure how you would attach the tail to the body, but I would guess that you would use some sort of wire or string to tie it around the waist. If you want to avoid damaging the feathers, you could try making a fake tail out of fabric. This would be a lot easier, but it wouldn't look as realistic. FMWhatsapp‚Äč
