Just in time for camp Hattingdon models her new American style football helmets

Updated 13 July 2016 at 10:40 am

I tried designing American football helmets for Hattingdon last year but they never looked right.

I don’t know if it was the design of the grill, the shape of the helmet or the shape of the designer — me!

One thing I couldn’t do to my satisfaction was the mane. An NFL friend came to the rescue and said, “Look you gotta have some dreads or braids — a ponytail or something else — but not what you got.” So I tried it again. They’re coming up in just a bit.

But first, something adorable did come out of my failure in the helmet design — Jojo Hattingdon — who instead wears an American football inspired hat. She has been a smash hit and I just love her.

Okay, here we go. I named the design Ryder.
