Violet, Pink and baby yellow kanzashi. Masquerade by hanatsukuri Violet, Pink and baby yellow kanzashi. Masquerade by hanatsukuri
This is a handmade hair ornament that I made out of silk chirimen-- the patterned fabric was something I bought in Japan, and the solid petals are hand-dyed to match. :heart:

You can see my model wearing it here: hanatsukuri.deviantart.com/art…

The fabric is called "flowers and hand drums"

This is a handmade hair ornament. :heart: I folded each petal individually, and arranged it into this flower design. :love:

When looking at this one, I see a beautiful moon in the summer's night...or, as some of you have kindly suggested, a "Summer's Moon Masquerade!"

How about you? What does it remind you of?

They are very colorful, but not too shocking, I think. I also like these colors. :D

Oooh, this one is really interesting. Pffft, I'll show my secret side and admit that I watch anime- it reminds me of one of my favorites, Mononoke. It has that mysterious, deep-of-night feel *__*<3

*adopts a highly teasing nature* :heart: Mononokehime is not just common anime...:nods: *very wize* it is Miyazaki. Every Japanese personw ill watch Miyazaki...whether or not they like anime. :XD:

aside from that~ nothing wrong with anime. :D I prefer manga, personally, but nothing wrong with anime. :D sometimes, one just needs a break from what we grew up reading...though more and more are growing up with manga/anime. ^_^

*End rambling comment*

Hahaaaa, I guess so. Miyazaki is really something, right? I still haven't seen Ponyo though, I feel kind of lame. (Actually the Mononoke anime I meant was the one that features the Medicine Seller, not Princess Mononoke, but they're both fantastic |D<3) Pffft, I think it seems like that over here too. Lots of people that know nothing about anime or Japan have seen Miyazaki films.

Mmm, it's true. There are a lot of people here in the US that like anime overly, perhaps, and I just don't like to be thought of as that type of person. u__u; I grew up on a mix myself!

Ahh, but I like long comments! They're interesting!

A bright Summer Day, this is what it reminds me off. All that Gold/Yellow creats a warming touch.
It feels like wandering trough a corn field under a blue sky~ Oh my God, I become too poetic
Anyway, it's a very pretty piece ♥

hanatsukuri Featured By Owner Mar 12, 2010
I meant "patterned material" by the way...I just realized that could be vague. I bought the patterns from some local stores, and some not-so local stores (I passed through Nagoya~).

The designs for the flowers are my own, though! :D I sometime look at real flowers and design from them, and sometimes I just look at the shapes I can make with the petal styles. ^_^

I'm sure you could make some too! It's fun. :heart:
