Mikie Graham’s Head Hunter Headdress

Mikie Graham Headdress 1

Last Thursday, a very unique art show opened in San Francisco. Taking a cue from the DIY toy world, S.F. fashion boutique Five and Diamond curated a DIY group art show using a leather flight helmet as the platform. They asked 30 artists from all walks of life to create their version of a Headdress. The show featured live models wearing the actual art pieces around and demonstrating their functionality.

Toy Customizer Mikie Graham was one of the lucky artists invited to the show. Mikie says this of his entry: "Being the only toy artist involved I decided that I needed to represent my passion and go with the toy motif for my headdress, a custom toy amalgamation that I am calling the "Head Hunter."

Mikie's piece features dozens of customized skulls and accessories from over 20 different vinyl toys - Dunnys to Qees to a Zlik.
