Naming Opportunities

10:53 PM 9 Comments A+ a-

I was planning to post tomorrow on a few of the Christmas gifts I made this year, but I'm up late watching the premiere of Project Runway All Stars (still LOVE Anthony for comic relief, but I can't decide who I want to win. except not Kenley) and I have a dilemma I need help with.
My parents are amazing and bought me a fabulous dress form for Christmas! So my leopard print duct tape version will be taking a back seat for now in favor of my pretty new Simplicity! Please ignore the black thread on her boob, she's gotten a lot of use already...



So my dilemma is, what should I name her? Any ideas?


In related news, my old Ford Explorer finally bit the dust over Christmas. Ironically I had spent the last few months saying that 2012 was going to be the year I bought a new car, but I was thinking several months in, not the 2nd day of the year! Anyway, I got a sweet deal on basically my dream car, a white Mustang convertible. Not the most practical choice maybe but the next car I buy will be for hauling kids around, so this one can be for fun right? Only now I need a name for her too...

I always name my electronics after old people. :) Mildred, Gertrude, Frank, Phyllis... I'll probably name my future dress form after an old lady as well. But your car definitely deserves something young and sexy!

I would think old lady name for the dress form too! Millie. Evie. Mabel. Ethel.

I've had a dressform for almost a year... still no name. My car doesn't really have one either... so I am of no help there. Your car looks pretty amazing though!

My dress form is called Mabel, so she's Mabel the Mannequin!

Very cool car! You could go for the cliché name Sally??

Name your dress form after your favorite female book character, and your car should be whatever you would name your pet whale/rhino/polar bear if you had one and it wouldnt eat you.

So jealous of your Mustang, my favorite car. My dressform is Edith. :) I've been thinking maybe I'll rename her Maleficent or something though, seeing as she usually is doing some evil thing with my projects so they don't turn out as expected. :D

Ha, I love Kenley. Always have. I just love her vintage style. I don't care whether or not she wins, at least not yet, but I love her style nonetheless!

That´s a good idea to find a name for "HER"! I have called mine "Marie-Antoinette" because this dress form has no head. During the revolution in France "Marie-Antoinette" was guillotined and in the end she was without head. It is a cruel thing but I love this name for my dress form.

Hmm, no help with the naming. My sewing machine and serger both need names still, though I may name the sewing machine Twila. Very cute car!
