A week later and we are still swooning over the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show! Their magnificent wings take time and careful craftmanship- how else would they look fit for an angel? The work and amount of time and resources that go into making these wings are stunning, and the above video gives you a sneak peek into the VS world! Check out one of our favorite clients, Marian “Killer” Hose, in the clip who used our feathers to create her ethereal looks!

burning man feather costume

Festival goers are getting all fired up for Burning Man next week, which goes from August 26th – September 2nd and is located in Black Rock City Nevada! Customers have been pouring in to our NYC & LA showrooms in preparation for one-of-a-kind feather costumes. But if you don’t have time to DIY check out some of our fun products below at Featherplace.com

FEATHER TIPS FOR BURNING MAN:

Please remember that when choosing your feathers for Burning Man, using all NATURAL, non-dyed Rooster Coque Tails, Pheasant Tails, and Peacock Feathers are always best for leaving “no trace behind” in The Black Rock Desert environment.  Avoid using feather products that have the tendency to shed.  Be sure that your feathers are securely attached when you DIY,  or if even if you plan to wear any finished feather products you may have purchased.

These over the shoulder Natural Pheasant Wings-are perfect for the person who wants a comfortable pair of wings that won’t get in the way!

T050RN-1

This Natural Rooster Coque Feather Headdress can be worn as is, or without the removable gold mask! This item is also great to be used as a base if you’re constructing something with your personal creative touch!

Ombre Story

The summer may be winding down but things are just starting to heat up in the NYC area! We love our Carnival customers and are excited as usual to see what amazing costumes will be part of this year’s West Indian American Day Carnival held in Brooklyn, NY. Feathers are a huge part of all Carnival costumes and they keep getting more and more creative! We put together mood boards of our top 3 trends we expect to see in the next year and beyond. Above is our “Ombré” board, which creates a stunning look on longer feathers when either tip dyed or dyed in 3 or more fading colors. Check out our Tip Dyed Pheasant Tails to achieve that vibrant look!

Below are our other two stories, “All White Everything” and “Birds of Paradise”. White is a luxurious shade in any category and it does not disappoint for Carnival. Silver Pheasant Tails are a great way to add white to any look!

All White Everything Story“Birds of Paradise” invokes a feeling of a rare jeweled bird wearing a myriad of colors on its feathers. Try our Bleached & Dyed Pheasant Tails or Peacock Feathers to take part in this trend. Stop by The Feather Place NYC for all your feather needs and hope to see you all this Labor Day for the festivities!

Birds of Paradise Story

Rihanna sure knows how to Shakes her little Tail Feathers. Here are some fun Carnival pic’s from her recent trip to her homeland of Barbados. Just look at the bedazzled white Ostrich Feather costume she parties in during Barbados’ Kadooment Day Parade. We spy some white Parried Goose Fringe in there as well … Of course, We LOVE it!!!!

FEATHER CROWN1Music festivals have been growing larger every year and there is no denying that these concerts have had a major impact on fashion trends. There are tons of feathers EVERYWHERE from  feather earrings, headbands, headdresses – you name it-  can be seen across the country! We found great DIY instructions via TheWonderForest.com that we wanted to share with you guys so you can look the part of a festival girl. These crafty gals used a mixture of shorter turkey, rooster and pheasant but these instructions work on any and all types of feathers. We recommend our mixed packaged feathers, rooster tails,  or even our items by the yard! Mix and match different kinds of feathers for added dimensions and textures!

Check out the directions below for a simple yet stunning feather crown!

FEATHER CROWN2Directions via TheWonderForest.com :

1. Cut strips of fabric or lace about 1 inch or thinner in width and about 30 inches long. I chose to cut up an old brown t-shirt (pull on the strips to make them roll up and stretch), an old vintage multicolored upholstery fabric, and a nice white lace. I used four strips and combines one brown strip with the white lace.

2. Starting at about 8-10 inches down, braid your strips together! You’ll want to leave those loose ends long so you can tie it together when you’re done.

3. When you reach the end, wrap one of your strips around the ends and hot glue it in place. Do this to both ends.

4. This is what it should look like after wrapping and gluing a strip around the loose ends.

5. Start hot gluing your feathers onto the back of your braid! Start with the shortest feathers and then add the taller ones on top.

6. Add a piece of fabric or felt to the backing of the feathers to finish it off. Hot glue it on.  Now you’re ready to tie it around your head and rock it!
