I made this quite early in lockdown, probably April, and have been using it all year!
It’s made out of holographic vinyl, cut into decorative shapes and glued together, with crystals and snakeskin pvc and jellie rhinestones.
I used glitter glue gun to stick parts of it together!
I am wearing a face mask made by Beloved Friend-Muse-Patron Shakrah Yves!
The holo vinyl tiara is flexible, and wraps around the plastic face shield brow piece.
I cut holes that line up with the studs on the brow piece and fastened it onto the studs.
Then the clear plastic face shield just pops over the same studs!
The face shield portion can be easily switched if it needs to be replaced, and of course the tiara part can be easily switched to a different brow piece, as long as it has the same array of studs. If I were making another, I would definitely make a vinyl base and fit it to the brow piece, test the face shield, then decorate it, as this one wrinkles a little under the face shield.
I was gonna wear it for a remote photoshoot with a local photographer, to help normalize wearing face shields and face coverings.
But I decided to give them money to do shoots with BIPOC folx instead. So this project was in un-shared limbo, and now I’m documenting it and sharing 🙂
I do really love the idea of custom snazzy faceshields, and want to see more! Gieza Poke did marvelous customizations with face shields during the fall IRL return of the Poke House to Monster Ronsons, you can see one here. Fashion face shields for all!
