I have considered getting into more photography props because I have many photographer friends that are looking for inexpensive but beautiful photography props. One particular photographer friend is Liz who started her own business this past year and in the beginning asked me to do a couple cocoons and hats for her. She finally put to use one of my favorite props which was this cute little newborn sized long elf style hat. I will give her full credit for the photo, she does wonderful work! If you are in the Sarasota, Florida area you should totally look her up she does an amazing job and takes beautiful photos at a really amazing rate. Her facebook fan page: https://www.facebook.com/lbp.Photography, and her blog: http://www.lizziebphotography.net/ I look forward to possibly trading props for photos someday when I get the chance :)
By request I can make variations on some of my hats which is what this little one was all about. My customer was pretty particular about what she wanted because it was for a halloween costume. In fact she sent me tons of different pictures pointing out how she liked these eyes, and these ears and these colors and of course a bow. I LOVE this! It's actually better then leaving me to my own devices because I can of course make it perfectly the way my customers want it to be. When left to my own devices (not to toot my own horn here) but I do wonderful work but it's my ideas not yours so PLEASE feel free to tell me what you want exactly and I'll see what I can do. I love how this particular custom job turned out and the end result speaks for itself. It matched her outfit perfectly and made for a very professional looking costume made by her mom and myself.
One of the wackiest and most original ideas that I've had so far is this here hat of Ickis. I'm not sure if anyone out there who reads my blog remembers the show Ahh Real Monsters that used to be on Nickelodeon but this customer who I made this particular hat had. He wanted it for halloween and said it would be perfect because it would be original. It sure was! A monster that was scary and cute at the same time. This guy was a full mask and had personality all of it's own. Definitely on my list of favorite hats I've made.
Also a quite popular game right now is Angry Birds. Very addicting almost as addicting as this hat. This of course is the green pig from Angry Birds. Keep your eye out for when I make the rest of his pals the birds themselves. So cute as a green pig can be.
