Princess of Kaua'i Floral Headdress

Title: "Hawaiian Headdress"

We happened to be in Hawaii during the 93rd annual King Kamehameha Celebration Floral Parade. It ended in the nearby Kapi'olani Park which was filled with live music and several food and craft vendors.

I saw a beautifully-dressed woman sitting in the audience listening to the concert. She was wearing traditional Hawaiian leis and garlands topped by an extravagant floral headdress. I think she was one of the festival princesses, Gayle Fujita Ramsey, Princess of Kaua'i. I took a photograph of her ornate headdress, and used it as a reference for the digital painting, above.
