The World of Once Upon A Time (OUAT) in Vancouver

I’ve been meaning to post my photos of ABC’s Once Upon A Time (OUAT) locations for a year now and what better time than now, when the cast & crew are back to film S3? 🙂 This post is dedicated to one of my lovely Twitter friends and fellow OUAT-fan, Aria @Duch29_9! The first thing I’m …

Hat #1: Augustine – The Art Deco Helmut Cloche

Today I am going to introduce my first hat that I made with The Saucy Milliner. 🙂 In November 2011, I blocked a fur felt hat on a vintage Art Deco (1920’s) asymmetrical hat block (the ‘helmut’ cloche, I believe). I used a mink-coloured fur felt and trimmed it with a pale pink grosgrain ribbon. …

Mad about Hats!

Today’s (Oct 17) Vancouver Sun article features hats by The Saucy Milliner, a local milliner was creates couture hats and fascinators for women and recently, children (The Saucy Pups line).

These hats are fur felt hats blocked on new and vintage wood blocks in various shapes and sizes. Everything is hand-sewn and NO glue gun is EVER used for trimming the hats. Lots of hard work is put in precision cutting and sewing that every owner of a Saucy Milliner hat is sure to have the best atop their head. The same goes for fascinators made of horsehair, sinamay, crin, parisisal, etc. No glue gun. This is what differentiates the Saucy Milliner from other milliners based in Vancouver.

Furthermore, for those of you who watch Once Upon A Time, she was the real ‘Mad Hatter’ who created the Mad Hatter magic portal top hat. If that top hat isn’t something you can imagine yourself wearing, you may have liked her Princess Abigail riding hat in S1. 😉 Wasn’t it beautiful?

See the photoshoot by Abbye Dahl, featuring 2 fascinators and 3 fur felt hats. The Fabionacci is one of my favourites!

Once Upon A Time needs to do the Twelve Dancing Princesses!

It would make me very happy if OUAT (ABC’s Once Upon A Time) could do a The Twelve Dancing Princesses / Swan Lake / The Princess and the Pea story. How? This is what I’ve been envisioning in my head: There are 12 princesses, daughters of a king from one of the fairytale kingdoms. Every …
