On January 5, 1855, King Camp Gillette was born. He improved the design of the safety razor and invented the disposable blade.
When I decided to do this photo, I asked my bearded husband what kind of razor he uses. He looked at me funny. I went out to buy a Gillette and since they're kinda pricey (for a prop), I decided to get one that *I* would use.

What is History With Hilary?
Every day, I take a self-portrait based on that day in history! The plan is to eventually make a book and/or calendar!
Select prints from my History With Hilary are for sale. Proceeds help to support the project, which is getting a little pricey! View them at Etsy!
I'm also accepting donations, including costumes, wigs, fabric, and props! Please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
