Fascinator Friday: BoringSidney

"The Fantastic Mr Fox"

This week's Fascinator Friday post takes us to my hometown, Seattle, WA, where we find the intriguing designer BoringSidney and her deliciously...different collection of headwear. With a solid history of costume design behind her, Belle of BoringSidney creates pieces that are anything but boring. Take this piece below, for example. In "The Wicker Lantern" a black, beautifully tangled sphere of grape vines embraces a flickering light, a lantern made to be worn on your head. Other creations include a birds nest cuddled between two real deer antlers, a full, hand beaded faux pearl '20s style headpiece, and a fascinator that features a real rhinoceros beetle. So you can understand why some of her pieces are categorized simply as "undefinable."

Along with the fashionably odd pieces, there are a number of stunning, vintage inspired hats and fascinators. BoringSidney has collected vintage hat patterns, hat blocks and materials and is actively keeping up the endangered art of millinery as well as pushing forward with her own cutting edge designs. You can find her shop on Etsy here, you won't be disappointed!
