This is 35 seconds of Neil deGrasse Tyson dancing or: The greatest 35 seconds of your entire life.
Washington-based artist Paula Strawn found a way to turn a necessary medical device into an adorable accessory. She customizes tiny corrective helmets worn by babies with Brachycephaly or flat head syndrome. It’s a treatable cosmetic condition that simply requires the infant to wear a helmet for 3-4 months. The cranial remolding helmets are plain white devices. That is, until Paula Strawn gets her hands on them.
According to the artist, many people become uncomfortable and avoid eye contact when they see a baby wearing a helmet. With Strawn’s artistic creations, however, parents and infants receive compliments and curious questions instead of pitying or worried looks. She says, “Often, it creates an opportunity to have a conversation and explain what the helmet is for and that it is not a scary situation.”
Strawn got her start with a request from a friend who wanted to beautify her infant granddaughter’s helmet. When that baby’s doctor saw the wonderfully painted helmet, he asked Strawn for business card and fliers for his office. So many parents were interested in custom-painted helmets that Strawn has since started her own business, Lazardo Art. She’s been in business for 12 years now and has painted over 1200 head-shaping helmets for babies all over the US.
