It was a little chilly and overcast that day and yet I still managed to get a little bit of a sunburn. Curse you evil daystar! The cups were all hand painted with occult symbols and gothic bats. The tea bags were painstakingly hand made by the birthday girl herself in little coffin shapes and the tea was wonderful and hot thanks to the industrial hot water servers!
Since the theme was Occult, I figured this was my chance to make an antler headdress! I've always wanted to make one with real antlers and my friend had a set of sun bleached antlers that were perfect for a headdress. The sun bleached ones are a little lighter so they are perfectly suited for a headdress. I attached the antlers to a headband and then filled in with silk roses and lace. They were actually very comfortable to wear too!
I also promised some better pictures of my altered Laura Ashley dress. Here it is! I wore a longer petticoat under it as well to fill out the hem. A feathered shoulder wrap made by a friend and silk purse finished off the outfit perfectly. We had a great time and I did Tarot readings for about 6 friends that afternoon too!
