UV resin and Angelina Fantasy Film antler tentacle crystal dendrite visor!

UV resin and Angelina Fantasy Film antler tentacle dendrite visor by Suzanne Forbes March 30 2021Yeah, you don’t see one of these every day!

My other big winter UV resin art accessory project besides the Imbolc Crown.

Probably a hundred hours of my life went into this piece over the last two months.

slowly adding thousands of beads, crystals, cast resin jewels, microbeads, micropearls and droplets of tinted resin.

Meditative, self-soothing, meticulous and yet random work.

Making these pieces is as different from my primary art mission as it could possibly be.

Controlling the droplets of resin as the UV light of the sun hardens them is hypnotic.

And I was so honored when GodX Noirphiles said they would accept it as a Patron gift and wear it for her performance in Switzerland in May! He said it would go perfectly with their costume :)))

I have been incredibly inspired by the faces and stories and performances GodX (pronouns he/she/they) has/have been posting since they started a Patreon.  I get so much energy from this young artist’s creative work, and while the money I can give is limited, I can also give my creative labor.

I simply cannot wait to see how this visor looks with Godx’s Switzerland costume and performance look.

Is this the prettiest thing I made this year? Holographic vinyl Dejah Thoris headpiece with glitter peonies!

Holographic Vinyl and Angelina Fantasy Film Dejah Thoris Headpiece by Suzanne Forbes June 2020I don’t know why this glittering crown makes me think of the Princess of Mars.

It’s made of fans of holographic and iridescent vinyl, with organic curves of Angelina Fantasy Film and so many crystals and so much glitter.

Holographic Vinyl and Angelina Fantasy Film Dejah Thoris Headpiece 2 by Suzanne Forbes June 2020I made it back in June, but I saved it to post at the darkest time of the year.

I thought we might all need something pretty.

Holographic Vinyl and Angelina Fantasy Film Dejah Thoris Headpiece 2 by Suzanne Forbes June 2020It is made with the same techniques as this similar headpiece I gave to muse Noéline la Bouche.

You can see Noeline’s photoshoot with that one here! And it is also similar to this Bi Pride one, which went in the drag show fundraiser raffle during the summer, and the Ice Queen Crown Made of Trash, another post that has a lot of info on the methods I used.

Other holographic vinyl projects are here!
