Hand Model Crazy Competition:

Exhibit A: Kimbra Hickey

CAN YOU DIGIT? The 'Twilight' cover features the fingers of Kimbra Hickey, a Village model.

So Hickey now stops anyone she sees reading the book to inform them of her contribution.

“I see people reading it on the subway, and I say, ‘Those are my hands! I’m a hand model!’ ” she explained. “I’m sure they think I’m crazy – a crazy lady on the subway.”

The good-natured Hickey sometimes hangs out near the cash register at the Barnes & Noble near her Greenwich Village apartment to spread the word. Surprised customers sometimes ask her for her autograph or to trace the outline of her hand on the book jacket.

She even carries around a Gala apple in her purse at times so she can recreate the pose for people.

Exhibit B: Ellen Sirot
