Unique headdresses and jewelry make a big slash on show floor.
August 19, 2016 – Chicago, IL – Headdresses reminiscent of Temple of Doom or Maleficent, ideal for comic con amazons and envy worthy costumes, tower over Wizard World Chicago’s 40th Anniversary Artist Alley booth #F50. After attending for many years, Simin’s Creations is finally exhibiting to bring her unique headdresses and jewelry directly to the fans.
Motivated by Adaptive Adventures & Atomic Imaging/Golan Studios’ 2015 Mad Max themed Halloween party, artist Simin Koernig created 5 movie perfect feather Mohawks to complete the looks for her costumed companions’ attire for the evening. These headdresses cinched the highest award of the night. With her love for Halloween, Simin’s new obsession was born. In the last year, her headdresses have been featured internationally for Australian Polynesian dance groups, costuming for Burning Man, Renaissance fairs across the country, masquerade balls, galleries, and model photoshoots.
In addition, Simin’s Creation’s booth features distinctive statement jewelry that is evocative of fantasy and steampunk with a horror twist. This edgy romantic jewelry is crafted from found objects collated by the artist along with hand crafted charms. Designing jewelry and honing the craft since 2000, Simin creates her work from inspirations around her studio stocked with a collection of beads, shells, objects in different colors and schemes with the use of pliers and jewelry wire. Each piece is hand crafted until the artist is satisfied with the quality and design. If they are lovely, but do not feel right, they will never leave the studio or be worn.
Born in a sunny region of Germany, Simin indulged in drawing, painting, mixed media sculpture, and photography early on, which was encouraged by her imaginative mother and grandfather. Moving to Chicago in 1996, the city has become her second home.
