I inherited this curious tool from my father, who was a hat dealer. This tool served to conform the hat exactly to the head of the customer, by measuring the head form.
(Sorry bad english, hope it's understandable !)

I'm not a big fan of the bright white background, but the hat is marvelous.

Excellent shot, I will certainly be interested in finding out exactly what this actually is. One of the weeks best.

Certainly one of the strangesst contraptions I've seen, and I've seen a lot of strange stuff.
Very nice representation, I really like the lighting and the choice of framing. This must have been apinful for your model, that dang thing looks uncomfortable!

Who knew they had such things? Imaginative use of the theme. Great focus. Cute portrait.

WHAT ON EARTH IS THAT!?!?! I'm not entirely convinced it's a tool but it's very interesting and it makes for a great picture.

This earns an 8 for novelty. Never saw a thing like that!

Very unique tool. You get extra points from me for this unusual image. It's refreshing to look at after all the hammers and power tools. Great clarity and sharpness. Little bit of breething space around it would have been beneficial. Well done. 9

Very cool. Is it really a head measuring tool? This one should be in the top 10, it's great! 9.

Fun, quirky shot... not every day I see a head measuring tool. I like the way your background is burnt out. The lighting on the face doesn't seem quite right, maybe just a tad too much in shadow. 8

spectacular tool - haven\'t seen one of those in a long time and the image is a wow
the way the "hat" overpowers the face and neck is nice and the strong blue of the shirt works well

I think you capture it very well. I can see you have chosen the right tone colour of the costume to go with it too.
