Do you need a feathered collar piece to match an existing costume? We would love to make it for you. Do you need a collar piece for a specific parade or show you might have? That's our specialty! Many sambistas or dancers male or female will contact us to make their collar pieces for a specific need. We have selected below a variety of styles that are our best sellers. In Brazil, back pieces are called "golas". Some collar pieces may have or may not have feathers, just like some headpieces may not have feathers. It just depends om what you are looking for.
Most of the styles below are shown on a specific feather, however we can make any pieces below in any feather you wish. The most common feathers are rooster feathers, plumes and pheasants. Goat's beard and artificial feathers are also used in some collar pieces. We have a collection on artificial feathers so that's an option to add to your piece. We also sell just the wire frame structure of the collar piece and we can work with the design photo you might have. Our wire frame designers are talented and just by looking at the photo of a piece, they can execute the wire frame, or the "skeleton" of the collar piece.
In general terms we ask that you send us your existing bikini costume so that we can match as best as we can the stone design, feathers, colors and embellishments. If you already have existing feathers on your costume, let's work around that and remember that we might not always find the exact tone/hue/color of that feather to execute the back piece. We will exhaust our vendors and ask them to match as close as possible your feather, if that is the case. Vendors can dye to match a feathers to come as close as possible to the hue of your feather, but remember that the designer does have your costume with them, so we are working with photos. Each screen is calibrated differently so even photos of a costume can be tricky to match, but generally we can get the job done nicely and our customers are extremely happy.
Most collar pieces are embellished with glass stones, crystals, rhinestones and acrylics stones. The more expensive pieces have Swarovski crystals. Some feathers can be sprinkled tiny crystals on its entire plumage. If we use glass or crystal stones, in general terms the costume feels a bit heavier, please note. We welcome your design as well.
Typically we can make a collar feathered piece in 2-4 weeks, depending on how busy we are. Please inquire with us our schedule, we can't work around your schedule, however we do try to accommodate, so please plan accordingly and remember there is shipping time, that can be from 9-12 business days or 15-23 business days.
