Here are a few photos showing how i made a mount for the frivolously fun "Apollo's knot" style, as well as a couple cool ones of an antique bustle-draping dress form!
Example research image of an Apollo's knot variation
This little frame is made from shaped millinery wire and stiff horsehair.
Horsehair can be sprayed to match an actor's hair color.
Look how cute!
You can see the side of the frame in this shot,
supporting the inside of the loop of hair.
And, unrelated, as an aside...
Check out this antique dress form with an adjustable skirt cage!
Forms like this were used for draping bustle swags and polonaises.
