I really don’t know how this happened. Whatever it was, something has to be done. This needs to stop. I somehow accidentally tripped and fell and obtained a set of 5 matching hat forms. This is actually handy, as Alphonse and Esmeralda are sized for my/The Boy’s head (more or less), but most human heads are rather smaller than mine. This gives me access to a wider range of sizes, which is good because most of the book hats and most of the hats I make for other people are intended for more standard-sized heads.
Now of course this does raise the delicate issue of names. I love naming my props. But, I fear my ability to distinguish among these five will leave something to be desired. I feel the obvious solution is to name them all Quentin and call it good. It may not work for real live quintuplets, but I’m pretty sure these guys are the obliging sort and won’t mind.
