    Thank you for the nice comments! Sartina: i got the basic idea f how to gather the tulle into the comb from this site http://www.feathersnpearls.com/2008/07/how-to-diy-birdcage-veil.html

    I bought the feather piece and crystals from Bj Trimming.

    I bought russian tulle, its sturdier, I folded the tulle in two, and rounded the corners, attached it to the comb, put it on my friend head to style, i positioned it cut it and ten attached the feather with hot glue. I added the crystals one by one.
