I've been collecting vintage hats, gloves, collars, furs and purses for awhile now and decided I'd better do something to whittle down the collection, especially when I really can't wear fur (morally and since it's usually just too damn hot), the gloves are too small and I look like an idiot in hats. So, I bought a couple of styrofoam heads at Hobby Lobby and glued them to a round styrofoam base. They've been sitting on a shelf, looking way too bland.
This morning, I got out the colored pens and went to town. Et voila! The Girls!
This is Mae. She's wearing a cute little multi-layered straw chapeau and a vintage cutwork collar. She works in a department store, lives in a 4th floor coldwater flat with 3 other single gals, volunteers at the USO and dreams about the day she meets the man of her dreams.
Stella, on the other hand, is a chorus dancer on Broadway. She's wearing a red mink hat and a silver fox collar, both of which were purchased for her by her Stage Door Johnny, Ricky "The Tomato" Damato. Stella lives in a beautiful apartment and has no intention of getting married anytime soon.
The girls are taking a vacation from their jobs and are holding court at my antique mall booth. They look fabulous!
