It seems that @wenti found her creative outlet and to celebrate the unveiling of her new product line I got to turn the house upside down for some funky looking product shots. But of course it’s the mutskes that steal the show.
May I present to you : “pinnemuts”, “bloem”, “pompon” & “bij”.
More pictures & hats will be added to her flickr page. The facebook fan page is in the works! :)
The trick was to find a way to mount the hats, since we don’t have babies in different age groups freely available we turned to balloons instead. At first the balloons were held upright by putting a magnet inside the balloon and one underneath a glossy piece of paper, but 999 balloon bursts and 2 very scared kittens later we went for a different approach: suspend the hats from a crossbar with a nylon thread. (this involves a clever mix of sewing, taping & cursing)
