~Sweet Melissa~



The request:
Melissa wanted a Valentine's Day prize that would go along with the pinup shot she had done for her hubs.
She sent me the photo, along with pictures of her honey bee tattoo, piercings, more tattoo style ideas to incorporate, and some of her fab collection of retro feather hair accessories....



Here's what I came up with...



I revamped a vintage headvase, trying to add as many of Melissa's features as possible. I then painted her tattoos, keeping with her style...



I made her a custom fascinator with real feathers and vintage rhinestone jewelry...



Added her tragus and forward helix piercings...



...and a black and white polka dot ruffled ribbon trim to match her photo attire...



Topped off with a black fabric rose...
