Happy New Years From FeatherStore.com




The end of another year is a chance to have a look back and decide what we want to change and how we want to change it.

Oh and of course it’s a time for great parties and some extra time away from the office and the every day grind.

I really wanted to put together a nice list of the best feather fashions photos from 2018 but there was just so many to choose from and that’s it, the time is up the year is really almost over.

So instead of leaving you all with nothing but a simple have a great New Years, here are a few great feather fashion pictures from 2018

Penelope Cruz In A Stunning Chanel Dress




I actually came across this picture while looking around for Hollywood Christmas photos.

What happened in the end? I found myself trying to remember what had really happened in that movie Vanilla Sky.

For some reason I couldn’t remember what movies I had seen Penelope in.

Which made me think about memories in general and then I came across Vanilla Sky.

Now if you have not seen the movie yet, and you like those kind of movies that are a mind trip, you should definitely see that one.

But any way back to this awesome dress Penelope wore to the Emmy Awards this past September. The head line of the Harpers Bazaar article said that it took over three hundred hours to embroider, looking at the dress you wouldn’t be surprised.

Here is a link to that if you want to read more.

Well she didn’t wear it for Christmas, but all you need is to add some red in there and it would be perfect for the holyday.

Even just a red feather boa would do the trick.

Chrissy Teigen Takes Feathers Just A Bit Too Far



We all loves adding  feathers to our clothing and using them to decorate, but in my humble opinion Chrissy Teigen took this a little too far.

Instead of just adding feathers to her bag or picture frame, she went all the way and had them attached to her body.

The picture at the top is part of the Instagram (or was it Twitter) shot which she shared with her fans.

And before you scroll down I feel I need to warn you that the full picture may make you feel uncomfortable.

I know that body jewelry has been around for ever but still some thing about surgically inserting these things under the skin is just too much.

Maybe the fact that they are feathers (well not real feathers) which I always feel are a symbol of the natural world.

But then again maybe that is the beauty in for some people, the way that we can form nature and our bodies.

Very cool looking, but Chrissy you took it too far.

Of course that is just my opinion.

You can decide for your self.

Chanel Created An Amazing Forest Fashion Show


This past fall Chanel had their models walk through a forest during their ready-to-wear fashion show in Paris.

When I first saw these pictures from the show I was sure that it was done in an actual forest.

But the truth is that it was done in the Grand Palais that was incredibly decked out so that it simply looked like these models were walking through a forest.

The Grand Palais is a huge historic site, exhibition hall and museum complex in Paris France.

I really have a lot of respect for Karl Lagerfeld, Chanel`s  head creative director, he is the one who put the whole thing together.

I honestly expected to see a lot more feathers in the natural, fall colored, forest setting. But the only one I found is the picture at the top of this post.

This is for sure one of the most original fashion show themes that you are going to see.

Some thing about it makes me think of Christmas` trees and how beautiful and magical it is when we bring nature into our lives and homes.

The Peacock Island - Lokrum


A few weeks ago I went out with a couple of friends. This is actually an amazing story already, truthfully it unbelievable. Because I so rarely make the time to get out and see my friends.

But it happened.

We met up at a friend appartment and while we were getting ready( having a cup of wine before leaving) I saw these peacock feathers in a vase in their living room.

When ever I see a piece of feather art I snap a picture of it, this time I even got a whole story along with it.

The feathers had come from the island of Lokrum in the Adriatic Sea, not far from Dubrovnik in Croatia.


The island has a long and tragic history which includes even a curse made on the island by a bunch of monks that were kicked off of it.

There are a number of peacock families that were brought there from the Canary Islands.

If you really want to read all about it here is a link to the Wikipedia page about it.

How To Make Feather Wings - Video Tutorials

Awesome Videos – How To Make Costume Wings

So I have written a post on how to make costume wings using real feathers before, but these are really great videos and I hope that I am giving enough credit to the people who made them here.

I want it to be very clear that I didn’t make the videos and I hope that if you like them you will give them a thumbs up on YouTube.

I will be honest with you the last one is the coolest but you should still have at least a quick look at all of them.

This first one from TheSorryGirls is the simplest and best explained in my opinion. And what is even cooler is that its about how to make Victoria Secret style wings which goes perfectly with the VS vibe that has been going on here.

But really I didn’t choose this topic because of that, at least consciously that is, who knows what our minds are really doing behind the scenes right?

YoshFHP put this video together. She explains everything really well but the thing that bothered me was the music, its just not my style. Oh and I am just much better of a listener than I am a reader so that made them less appealing to me but to each their own. You should definitely take a look at it.

Now these last two are by Alexis Linicome. She actually sold these on her website for as much as two thousand dollars. She is currently sold out of everything on the website but you can check out her blog for more information.
