A Wonder Woman Uniform.

u·ni·form (yū'nə-fôrm')
n.
A distinctive outfit intended to identify those who wear it as members of a specific group.


When I painted acrylics I had aprons. Well, one apron and one paint smattered lab coat. Such beautiful beasts they were. In the summer I would paint naked, except for my aprons. Then when I moved onto watercolour...there was no need for them. Or at least no justifications. I didn't have goopy paint and I didn't need to wipe my brushes on myself, so I hung my aprons up. But...I missed them.

A few months later I decided I needed a uniform. I needed something to replace them. Something to define working time from non-working time.

Creator of NaNoWriMo and author of 'No Plot No Problem' feels the same about his writing. He has a viking helmet as his uniform! To my delight he states:
"For me, when I don my plastic Viking helmet, I know I've left the real world behind and am sailing off to the shores of my fictional Valhalla. The hat reminds me that I am Elsewhere, and I will be staying there until the ships reserves of Dr Pepper and Starburst run low."

(good book, you should check it out)


Anyway I was very excited to pick uniforms. About half a year ago I got some black fingerless fishnet gloves as my uniform. I love them! But then...

Well.
I was in the store and it was there.
And I wanted it.
And I had no jusitifications for it.
But I wanted it.
And I thought 'camping hat!'
And I wanted it.
And then I got it.
And then I wore it.
And then I KNEW.
I KNEW.
Painting hat!

And so here it is.
My new painting uniform.
It's Wonder Woman on my head in all her glory.
And the MoJo is amazing.



Beautiful, ain't it?
