Life Size Dress Form - Meet Robin

Happy Day Vintage has started our own line of vintage inspired dressforms. Keep checking the Happy Day Vintage blog to read more stories on the dressforms created and the story behind them.
Today, I would like to introduce "Robin"

Robin is a perfectly imperfect handmade dressform waiting to model your clothes, jewelry or just add an artistic touch to any room. Robin is covered in nearly 500 hand cut leaves which were strategically placed, one by one, in order to create a unique design. Robin also has 11 birds adorning her body. Two of the birds are easy to see but nine of the birds are hidden. Can you find them?

I name all of my dressforms. Each has a unique personality and name which comes to me as I create her. As I mold, past, design, glue, plaster, etc... a story comes to mind of the "woman" I am creating. It may sound crazy but it's my way of connecting and escaping in my art just as one would do while reading a good book.

While creating Robin the song "I'm like a bird" by Nelly Furtado kept popping into my head. That's where the name Robin, a bird common to MN, came to mind. I wanted to create a free spirit, young, slightly bohemian personality. I feel I accomplished this with Robin.

Each of my dressforms have a heart inside. I realize this too may be silly since the dressforms are closed at both ends and no one will see the inside but placing a heart inside makes me feel good about the product I'm creating. It's all about the details. Since Robin is a child like free spirit I had my daughter create the heart for her...
Left: Carly showing off the heart she colored. She choose a picture of the pony "Loving Heart" to color and put in Robin.
Right: Carly getting ready to paste and place the heart inside Robin.

As always, remember I do custom orders. Please contact me if you would like to create a dressform specific to certain measurements and "dressed" in a certain design, color, material, etc...

Thank you for reading the Happy Day Vintage Blog
and
Have a Happy Day

  11. Dear Happy Day,

    I scrolled down to Comments to take the time to tell you how beautiful, creative, fun & interesting mannequins you make! I love how you put a heart into each one, and that you have your daughter assist in this part of the process. Never stop honouring who you are & making them so unique in every way. Reading your words, I know you are an artist, full of empathy & passion for the best in & for people, even those who are only a torso! Lol

    I hope you can somehow delete the obvious spam messages someone put on here. That is just so weird & rude: what is the point of them leaving messages full of garbled phrases! Beats me!

    Regardless...keep smiling!
    Kim
