I finally decided I needed one when I got started, in earnest, making hats. Previous to this I would use things like lamps, large balls of yarn, my children. Let me state something here: My children are only Things sometimes. (*gasp* another reference! Do you know this one? C'mon! It's easy!)
I got my head at Sally Beauty Supply, with a coupon, for about $2.19. Which is nominal when you compare to other places. Now I'm in the market to get her a boyfriend. I've seen some around but keep hesitating to purchase him. I'd rather pay another $2.19 instead of the $10+tax that I keep seeing him at. Oh, what the heck. I guess in the greater scheme of things $10 isn't too bad. I think I can talk my hubby into that. It's when I start wanting the dress form that he's going to completely flip. =D
Without further ado, here is Marie Antoinette. I did not name her. My daughter did. She and I share the same sort of morbid humor. I was talking to her one day (my daughter, not Marie) and we were tossing names around. Jessica, Daisy, Beatrice . . . during this conversation the Styrofoam head must have fallen to the floor a half dozen times. The last time she fell (the Styrofoam head, not my daughter) is when my beautiful, smart, morbid-thinking offspring said, "MARIE! You should call her Marie because her head keeps falling off!"
I laughed . . . we laughed.
And so the name stuck. So has her propensity for falling to the floor. I'm thinking about covering her in duct tape. Not that duct tape will help with her fondness for carpet, but it should would make her less, I don't know . . . . bland?
Peace and blessings,
