Josephine the Pirate (PaperPlay fashion challenge)


I know, I know, I lost the plot, lol. I was playing with Josephine (from Innovative Stamp Creations plate), dressing her up as a pirate this time. I always wanted to have a tricorne hat, but alas, never had a chance to wear one. So this is my fashion statement for PaperPlay fashion challenge.
A very dated fashion, you can say. To make this hat a bit more girlie I added some sparkle and fluffy feathers. While I was buying these bits today in a little sewing shop, I saw these pearls on a wire, not sure what they were meant to be but I just had to have them. :)
Just realised that Mixed Media Monday is running a Play challenge this week, since I had fun playing, dressing up Josephine, I'll "do a Joanne" (who's the queen of combined challenges :), and add this to MMM challenge as well.

I think this is very stylish, she suits being a pirate.
