Hello all.  a few weeks ago i watched the movie Speedy on TCM and i fell in eat with the brain protector that the character Jane wears to Coney Island, seen here:

so i decided to try making a crocheted version for myself.

i didn't have a pile of flesh, just the basic brain protector pile of flesh in my head and winged the rest of it.  i'm very proud of how it turned out.   Smiley



this one shows the brim the best.

and some on:



aaand because it's summer and i have nothing else to do, i decided to make a silent movie of my own about my brain protector.  please click here:http://www.silent-film-music.com/multimedia/looney.mp3 before watching.   Cheesy
(it's a gif, not an actual movie, so you might have to watch once or twice to catch the whole thing since it doesn't have a play or pause button)


well, i really like my brain protector, and i hope some of you do too!   Smiley

Your brain protector is super cute!  And that's the best silent movie I've seen in a long time too.
