This is how Coco looked when I found her for a song in Half Moon Bay. She even opens like a bird cage. She stands a wee bit under 5' from the bottom of her stand to the top of the "neck". She is made of metal.
Coco stands in my art studio and was most often draped in colorful sari scarfs or holding a tote or even a hat until now. Recently I found a head for her at a flea market. The head is one usually used as a practice head in Beauty schools so her hair can be washed and styled in various ways. I wasn't fond of the "make up" she wore so I redid it to create a softer look. She has now gone from merely a stand to a model. By dressing her, styling her, using creative fashion license her photos can be used and manipulated in Photoshop for use in other artistic endeavors.
For the most part though, Coco is my muse.
