Hysteria Machine's Gothic Crowns

I came across this gorgeous video of Hysteria Machine's designer, Cara Trinder on the Style Insider channel on Facebook. I was struck by the elaborately beautiful macabre masterpieces on a channel that generally showcases lighter, mainstream fare.
Watching Trinder make each piece from scratch, casting the intricate pieces in resin, then gold leafing the finishes, adding jewels was crafty heaven to me. Fear not gentle vegans, despite the abundance of bones and skulls in her work, she does not use actual animal parts. These elements are faithfully cast or sculpted in resin as well.
In addition to headdresses and crowns, Cara Trinder also makes dramatic corsets and masks for her clients.
