Horse heads on the catwalks?

December 11, 2007

fashion-anvil-160.jpgI don’t know for sure what this thing is. It looks like a bunch of blond braided hair, topped off with an anvil or a small horse head, and I gather these things are being hurled from rafters onto unsuspecting fashion models these days.

Obviously, safety precautions at this fashion show were inadequate. You can see the special horse head anvil protective netting snagged the thing but didn’t stop it, so now this poor women will have to undergo a painful horse head anvilectomy to remove it.

Meanwhile, I’m continuing my research into this alarming trend and will report back to you. I Googled fashion and anvil and small horse head and came up with a Utah educational television blurb about some blacksmith. This could take awhile.
