#17 Meredith on 2009-02-23 10:45
They're all beautiful (and the name choices are fantastic--I love subtle literary influence)! My favorite is the Cordelia. The shock of green is awesome, and the polka dots are too cute.
#18 Alexandra (Homepage) on 2009-02-23 10:52

Hippolyta! Love that it looks like polka dots.
#21 Angela on 2009-02-23 11:47

Cymbeline and Constance are my faves!!! I love these!!!
#26 Danielle (Homepage) on 2009-02-23 12:21

#42 Ida on 2009-02-23 16:23
Imogen was my favorite but i feel there's a lot of competition for that one so Katherina is also fabulous!
#43 haj on 2009-02-23 17:10
my favorite is imogen....that emerlad color is beautiful! but I am also a fan of the Emilia.
#44 joleyn on 2009-02-23 17:17
My favorite is imogen, followed by viola. They'd be a conversation piece for a night out for sure!
#45 Jessica on 2009-02-23 17:39
I am in LOVE with Katherina and Maria.

is it possible to request the headpiece on a metal headband rather than an elastic? I find it messy to use the elastic bands... does anyone else have that problem btw?
#46 Julia on 2009-02-23 18:54
I love the Ophelia! Perfect contrast and swirly pattern. :-)
#47 Kitty on 2009-02-23 19:07
constance for the purple, or lady montague for out at night.
#48 tw on 2009-02-23 19:37
Imogen is ABSOLUTELY STUNNING! I love it!
#49 Cecilia on 2009-02-23 22:27
1. I totally love Etsy and this prompted me to spend way too much time on there...

2. I was drawn to the Imogen one ( not really sure why, I think I'm trying to get more color into my wardrobe and I just happen to really like that shade of greenish.

3. I did also like the ones with peacock in them (Lady Montague and Lady Capulet).
#50 Justine on 2009-02-24 01:29
DESDEMONA is gorgeous and oh so vintage! love it!!! :-)
#51 Erika on 2009-02-24 02:44
Viola is my favorite! loveee purple
#52 Jessica on 2009-02-24 10:17
I would want to win the "IMOGEN emerald green and black feather headband" becasue I am so into green and it would look sharp against my blonde hair. --> I actually just bought the "EMILIA brown, white and black feather headband" in New York because I loved it so much. :-)
#53 Leslie Pigue on 2009-02-24 10:46
Oberon is definately my favorite. Although I'd love to have them all!
#54 Holly (Homepage) on 2009-02-24 13:32
I LOVE the HERMIONE!!!! It's gorgeous!
#55 crystalcorrin on 2009-02-24 19:22
The featured "Miranda" is my favourite--I love the rust-coloured feathers!
#56 IMP (Homepage) on 2009-02-24 20:38
Thanks for offering this contest. Good luck everyone. And me!

Depending on my focus of dress on any given day, many of them are very acceptable with my wardrobe. I really like Aemilia, Cymbeline, Viola, Silvia, Desdemona, Imogen, Olivia, Lady Montague and Rosalind.

Of the red focuses, I wish there could be more of a blue tone red. Perhaps the computer monitors are not doing justice, though?

Happy Fat Tuesday!
#57 Mary on 2009-02-24 23:07
The Regan green and gold is absolutely gorgeous.
