When the little boy of 43-year-old Chris Newsome’s friend lost his frog, the man decided to do something quirky, unexpected and toad-ally amazing – start taking pictures of a toad with a hat to cheer the little fellow up. While this may have started as a modest act of kindness, it turned into a real toad fashion couture extravaganza.
The man, who has background in graphic design, took some foam paper and demonstrated some serious arts and crafts skills, taking toad millinery to the next level. While some people started writing negative comments saying that the guy has too much time on his hands, Chris, who currently works as the Director of Web Services for a University, told Bored Panda: “The longest I spent on each hat may have been 10 minutes.” Take that, toad fashion haters!
The gorgeous Alabama-based model, aka a Fowler’s Toad, seemed more than happy to try on different hats, including that of a dandy, a street kid, a pimp, and a Texas boy. After the little impromptu fashion show and a photoshoot, the man sent the hats to his friend’s boy. While this didn’t bring his frog back, we’re sure it made the boy feel a bit better.
