My Trainee

By cattyal  
When your four year old neice asks if she and her doll can have their heads bandaged for some photos it's hard to refuse Smile She's familiar with my wrapped head pics - especially as I've been wearing a t-shirt with my 'me and my teddy bear' pic on it this week.

I fully expected her to freak out when she actually got the bandages on but she was absolutely fine!

Other entertainment today was lying on the floor having plaster bandages applied to my face - it shouldn't be too long before I can start making custom masks that actually fit!

Thanks Smile She thoroughly enjoyed doing the pics and wants a t-shirt with this pic on the front - just like Aunty Ali's Smile

She then had me wrap my head so that she could take photos of me - apparently she thought it was hilarious Smile

Thanks everyone - and thank you Pete for the HC Smile

I've just added a couple more - one taken by my sister as that's me wrapped on the step and another of my Trainee.

Sadly I'm now back home again after almost 6 hours on the train - I think I'd better start unpacking......

Hilarious! I love the expression on her face in V2. Mischief incarnate Wink

Well done on the HC! Kinda spooky V1 is, but good nevertheless.
Cheers, Goggz

Love the idea of this but think you could take it to another level with a better background and a little more work. Lol at V2 .... a joy.

Thanks again everyone Smile

I'll be taking another look at the shots Dave when I settle back into my routine. I had to work fairly quickly as with a 4 year old it pays not to faff about too much! Sadly she's a few hundred miles away now so I won't be doing any more soon but maybe next time she's down south she'll be up for another go!

The LBT has a great face for the bandages.

I like the way her cheeks compliment the dolls nose

Good news Yael - at least I've plenty of time to make some space up there!

She's a great match for the doll isn't she? I didn't realise until I looked at the pics
