Poor Boris

Alas poor Boris.  I’m not entirely sure of his specific gender but I like to think of him being slightly androgynous but leaning towards the male.

I’m not sure if reproduction Phrenology models feel embarrassment to any degree, but I have really pushed it over the last few weeks.  He started off being made to wear a chandelier necklace until it was sold.  He then sported a terrific fascinator made from a clock mainspring.  We sold that, and then made him wear a particularly handsome tiara  made from aqua crackle glass beads and coiled in the fashion first described by one Mr. Nikolai Tesla.

Boris is modelling a particularly cheap (and quite nasty) pair of goggles bought from ebay and instantly regretted.  The pith helmet is a trashy tourist souvenir from Vietnam given to me by a good friend in London.  I had numerous cash offers for it, but alas not for sale – its not that it’s particularly valuable but I know that I would never get another.
