Floral Crowns: Part 1 - An Introduction

When I was in Oregon I went to a craft store there and bought a huge bunch of fake flowers and floral garlands. I spent one late June afternoon and made a whole bunch of floral crowns in different colors. I documented the outfits in both digital and 35 mm film to spice things up a bit.
First, here is the crime scene...

Stay tuned for Part 2...
