Here she is! My lovely new assistant and official hat model, yet to be named, who arrived for work this week! You see her here as I first saw her on Ebay. Even hairless and hatless, poor thing, she is beautiful!
The long search for her was started last summer, and there are a bunch of hats waiting to be seen with her. She's working on commission to start--if she sells some hats, I'll buy her some hair.
Some good name suggestions have been offered from coworkers at my day job, my students, and friends. Feel free to comment and offer a name choice of your own. So far, the top choices are:
So many good names--it's hard to choose.
Here's my girl, nameless still, getting acquainted with one of the berets from a previous post.
Isn't she lovely? It's amazing how different she can look with different lighting. Her face is very reflective and it's already apparent that the light wants to really bounce off her face. She and I will have a photoshoot soon and we'll post some of the results here. Meanwhile, in my next post, I will show you some truly great photos of great hats made by someone else.
