In The Beginning There Was Hugo

I came across a box of old slides while I was reorganizing the studio. We watched them on the weekend in Mom's room. We turned out all the lights and loaded them into the old slide projector and saw the pictures on a sheet on Mom's wall.  It was a pretty good time. I highly recommend it.

We came across this pic of me when I was about 10 years old. Mom and Dad got me a Hugo! Master of Disguise doll. He came with all kinds of makeup and prosthesis you could apply to change his appearance. I can still smell the glue stick that came with him. He was awesome! This is proof ......  I can totally blame my parents for my bizarre Halloween obsession.

I obviously took those early experiences to heart. I have simply upgraded from a Hugo doll to a Mr. Jimmy. Did anyone else have one of these guys? 
(a Hugo doll.... not a Mr. Jimmy.)
