Finally Airing! Today on Martha...
Today I demonstrated how I made my Pico Halloween headpiece with Martha on her show. Although it was a more complex craft, we still had a lot fun making it. Pico was there with her pirate ship and I gifted to Martha, a Coral Ann headpiece, so she joined us too.
The mask/headpiece was obviously inspired by Pico, my parrotlet, and my obsession with her. When I thought about what I was going to dress as for Halloween this season, I thought maybe I should be a pirate—ahoy matey!—since people tell me I look like one with Pico is on my shoulder. A pirate costume seemed too, I don't know, generic, so I decided to make Pico the pirate and I would be her, the parrot! Watch the video from the show and learn how to make the headpiece here. Thanks Martha and the Martha Stewart Show for having me on and Nick D'Emilio for the show photos.
