Showroom Dummies

The challenge :

Create two display items suitable for use as hatstands, no funding available for materials (with the added bonus of these being available for jewellery display after the hatstand use)

So...some old newspapers, a small cardboard box, two balloons, some sellotape, a bag of wallpaper paste and one afternoon of messy fun later, these appeared !
Of course, they needed to be painted or finished in some way. I decided on white acrylic paint. I wasn't able to get a photo of how they looked with the hats on, but the hats involved are quite amusing - with multi-coloured furry ears attached !

They have a sinister look about them, maybe they could be villians in Dr. Who... !

I may alter them a little for jewellery display, perhaps add some fabric, but I quite like the serious-sinister look they have !
