#marchmeetthemaker day 18, Mistake or Lesson:
This #leatherheaddress was a mistake AND a lesson. Around 2006, I tried to make a cloud like mask to personify the north wind. It came out looking like some sort of weird white octopus. So I tossed it in the reject pile and forgot about it for a year or two, until I came across it and tried again.
This process was repeated several times, and each new attempt only made things worse. It got stranger and less cloud like with every try, so back to the reject pile it went.
Around 2011, I picked it up again and finally had an "Aha moment". I cut the mask in half and decided to turn it in to an elaborately beaded and feathered headdress. The design was very well received, and since then, I've made several variations for kind and talented performers.
This "mistake" taught me to keep trying, and to be willing to take risks. Be willing to fail, and then be willing to try again. If you're persistent and open minded, such experiments may take you to unexpected places!
