Default Do you need an ostrich to get the feathers?!

I hear all this talk about marabou puffs and ostrich feathers. What do you do with them? I bought a puff/ostrich feather clip from HL. Its cute but I don't know what to do with it yet. Anyone have some pics or ideas?

The feathers are so long it would definitely tickle a little nose, it seems like they need to be cut. In all the pics of hats with feathers that I've seen online the feathers are long but no one is wearing them. Do they get in their face and eyes when they wear it?

TIA

If you buy the ostrich boas then they come like that. Make a loop and sew the ends to make puffs.
