I thought about making something very unique, that I had not seen before. Something that fuses my love of vintage style with the playful idea of cat-ears and here it is: gold brocade lined cat ears. It is something different, something with style and just a little bit steam-punk. I am also going to try this style with a finish of black satin bows, but a thinner ribbon than I used on the other bows so the brocade is more visible. I had a trial with gold bows, but the gold ribbon I have was too shiny and I would need to find a more subtle hue of gold if I am to use gold ribbon. If I can find something suitable, I might try black and gold ribbon together.
The teal cat-ears are one of my favourites. They are hand made and each headband takes about one hour to make. I cut the pieces from my own pattern, and then hand sew them together to make ears. I then sew the ears to the headband and finally finish with the satin ribbon bows. I try to make the bows almost the same on each side, but of cause it is very difficult by hand to have them identical, so each bow and each head band is a little unique.
These headbands are available on my Etsy store (link here).
I have been hand making new styles of cosplay cat-ear headbands. (Top to bottom) Romance Noir handmade cat-ears, in hot pink with black satin bows (opens Etsy.com) and light pink polka-dots (opens Etsy.com).
I want to try the light (baby) pink polka-dot cat-ears with some light pink bows next.
I have applied for the Sydney (Australia) Etsy Christmas markets, so hopefully I will be successful and get a stall there.
These new cosplay cat-ears will be available on my Etsy store (opens link to Etsy.com) and eBay (opens link to eBay.com.au) soon. For now you can still check out my other cat-ears on both of those sites.
Let me know what you think of my cosplay cat-ears or what you would like to see (for example colour combinations) in the future.
The last few days I have been busy making 9 cute leopard print cat ear headbands for a Hens Party celebration. The cool thing about these headbands, is the cat ears are fully removable and can be worn as hair clips (which is great for hair that’s tied back), or in let down hair with the head band. I have used elastic attachments to guide the cat ears onto the headbands. They just look so cute when they are all laid out together.
