In order to reduce the amount of weight on his head, the ‘turban’ is a padded doughnut of cloth wrapped in strips of fabric.

And here’s a picture of my finished arrows.  All in all, I had a lot of fun making these.

Red and Gold Elizabethan – I’m In Love

Not that I will be starting another project any time soon, but when my current court garb is done I plan on doing this.

Posting the portrait here for reference.

Ottoman for the Man – Tall Cap Finished

The ½” increase it size did the trick.  The hat fits!

Feather Splicing

To add a little more pizzazz to my arrows, I’m splicing the cock feather.  There’s a tutorial for this here.

Spliced Feathers

Some of the feathers, despite being the same make and size, were very different heights.  I’m planning on trimming them down a bit once they’re on the shaft.

Ottoman for the Man – Tall Cap, Take Two

I’ve decided to go with an extra ½” to the circumference.  If it’s too small there’s nothing to do, but if it’s a little too big I can pad the brim.

The main shell is done, but it still needs lining.
