I use all sorts of props when photographing millinery, but I am keen to get my hands on one those elegant long swan neck ladies. I think that they're acrylic (not poly, I beat those things up way too easy).
They're featureless and bright white.
Any one got any ideas? I'll post a photo when I can find one (the only one I can find is booger green).
I got mine from morplan
I just bought this little beauty yesterday! I think it might be what you mean? I got if from Mei + Picchi in Adelaide, but they have a store in Brisbane, at 29a Helen Street, Newstead 4006. 07 3257 1711. Their website is www.meipicchi.com
It was $57.75 and the reference on my invoice is "Merchandising Head 400m Gloss White". Apparently made from fibreglass.
Oh Greer, that's the exact one I was thinking of. Thank you for the info. I shall have to send the man down to pick one up for me.
I have a question for you, have you named her?
Oh, Megan, so pleased to help!
I have named her, she is Edith - Edith head. A word play on the great Edith Head of Hollywood movie wardrobe fame (although not many get this, I think)! Perhaps if she wore glasses? :)
Love that Greer, I did my thesis on Edith Head in college.
Now THAT is something I'd love to read. What a great subject she would have been!
I can email you a copy if you like!
I'd really like that Aoife - Edith Head is someone I've admired most of my life - despite not being in the fashion industry at all. I worked in the film industry for a few years (administration) and often looked longingly into the wardrobe department wishing I was there. But, two kids to raise didn't give me the change to leap into the unknown in those days!
My email address is firstname.lastname@example.org
Thanks so much! :)
Done Greer, let me know if it goes through ok.
To work in the film industry in the wardrobe department is a favourite dream of mine.
How do you make your hat sit on it so perfecly. Does it ever it slip off?
Hi Kylie, I use the secret told to me by a well-known and very successful milliner - masking tape ;)
