I do not want to die...
until I have faithfully made the most of my talent
and cultivated the seed that was placed in me
until the last small twig has grown.

Hat Project - Dracula Castle Top Hat

I share with you my work in progress in weird gothic vampire fashion.
this hat features my interpretation of Dracula's castle.... all wearable and that.
just the perfect accessoire for a vampire ball...

the almost finished hat. yet I think the castle needs to be darkened a bit more...

view from the back. looong bow with bat and blood crest

work in progress:

I cut the single parts of the castle from very strong cardbord and glued and sewed them to the hat.

black paint at the base after I covered the pieces with paper scraps.

painting is finished, now I finish the edge with satin ribbon, add bow, roses and feathers and such...


  1. lovely! especially enjoying the ribbon choices...gives a very rich huntsman sort of air to it. :)

  2. yes, the ribbon looks green in some pictures... but it is actually black... damn fake light! ;)
