The Hollywood Carnival and Cultural Festival 2017 was an amazing, world class experience. Los Angeles is truly a melting pot of “vibrant multicultural & diverse communities of people” from all over the world. Several countries presented; from Guatemala to Trinidad, Brazil, Mexico and so many more. It was great to see all the different cultural representations and carnival costumes in one parade. Here are some of the images we captured while at the parade.We know it takes months of planning and preparation to put these costumes together. Fortunately feather supplies are easy to come by at The Feather Place, located downtown Los Angeles. Wholesale is available to all carnival and cultural dance customers! We loved all of the amazing feathered costumes made with unique color combinations incorporating ostrich plumes, rooster coque tails, goose palettes, pheasant tails, and peacock feathers. Embellished with flashy sequence appliques, beads and trims to catch your eye, each reveler brings individual style and artistry within their groups theme.We’d like to give a shout out to our friends Extacy Mas, Jam Design Concepts, Bamboo Mas, Sistas wit Style, Caribbean Zone Productions, People of the Sun, The Mirage, Abraham Gonzales-Pollick from A Royal Piece and ALL of our carnival clients for counting on The Feather Place this year. And a SPECIAL Thank you to Extacy Mas … Parading with you was the time of my life-xo!

Miss Peregrine’s Home For Peculiar Children, one of my favorite reads is finally coming to the silver screen! We can’t wait to see Penny Dreadful’s Eva Green transform into the black feathered Miss Peregrine in Tim Burton’s adaptation of the book. We especially love the movie trailer below where you see Miss Peregrine’s full metamorphosis! Set to be released this September, we can predict that Miss Peregrine’s character is sure to be a hit this Halloween season! You can transform yourself into Miss Miss Peregrine with a pair of our Black Feather Mockingbird Wings and Black Feather Collars and Chokers.

Miss Peregrine's Home For Peculiar Children

Burton described Eva Green’s character Miss Peregrine, the headmistress of the peculiar orphanage, as a “weird Mary Poppins like character — a strong and mysterious person who looks like she could turn into a bird. That’s Eva.” – www.moviepilot.com
