Some months ago, I was contacted through my flickr account by a photographer in Portland, asking if I'd be willing to loan her one of my parasols for a photoshoot. I'd actually just sold the one about which she was inquiring, so I custom made one up in colors to go with the theme, and sent it off to her.
Here's the original one about which she'd asked, and the one I made especially for the shoot:
And you can see some of the pictures from the shoot here.
If you're going to ComicCon this year, be sure to look for Vorpal Images in the art show!
