Curlgirl: I only got a few.  My photographer is in China.

Melusine: Thanks!  I agree, not as bad as last year.
The party was OK.  It was really warm and the party was outdoors.  I had a housewarming earlier in the day that was more fun, but that was my Rennie friends.

I had a strange experience getting ready for birthday costume party.  Time didn't allow for me to use the curlformers so (eep!) I resorted to a curling iron.  Yes, I keep one on hand.  It hasn't been used in years and I was totally out of practice using it.  So much so that I had to do half of my head twice before I got the hang of it!  I did a deep conditioning today to hopefully minimize any damage getting worse.
As soon as I find the data cable I'll get them downloaded.  I wish I had more pics to choose from but hopefully these turned out good.

OK, I got the pics downloaded.

This is from my friend's birthday party.  We were supposed to dress up like the part of our ancestry that influences us. I chose French, having recently been to Paris and falling in love w/Versailles.  I have French ancestry on my paternal grandmother's side.
Sorry for the crappy quality

Thanks, Melusine.  It was fun.

Hooray, hubby comes home today!  And he said he bought me lots of presents!!

My hair seems more oily than usual since I did the cassia treatment.  I don't know what to think about that.

Tomorrow is the cast picnic.  I really hope it miraculously cools down.  It is really hot and humid today.  Typically I love hot weather, but ENOUGH already! 

Curlgirl: send some of that rain my way, pretty please?

Curlgirl:mission accomplished.  You can back off with the hail, though.  Poor trees.

About the curlformers: I tried 4 curls.  I need 8 curlers for those 4 curls because of the length of my hair, and that's just in front around my face.  I didn't get the instructions quite right at first, even though I have watched 3 different youtube clips on it.  Anywho, the result was quite good and I plan on giving them another try.
I think they might be the solution to getting the top layer of my hair to have the wave I want so it matches better with the rest of my natural wave.

Angry I asked for rain not hail!!! Roll Eyes  Somebody "up there" is NOT paying attention!!  I will now talk to Someone in a higher position,either Mother Nature herself or her boss. 
Sometimes it pays to just skip the middleman and go to the person who will take care of business!!!! Wink

Curlgirl: your efforts are appreciated, even if the message got garbled.  (LOL)

I've been super busy making the cutest mini witches hat and today I finished it.  <3
Also working on skull hairpins.  Gosh, I love Halloween.
Very disappointed with the decoration offerings in the stores-minuscule!!!

Lucky for me I have an abundance of props.  This year I have picked up a few bat props so its all good.

Been trying to reason out how to achieve an Elizabethan hairstyle for my Ren character.  I haven't experimented yet but have a couple of ideas.  I could of course wear a wig, but I'd rather do my own hair if I didn't take to long or weigh too much.

Angel:Totally!

Got a few more items at a Spirit Halloween store that was next door to the restaurant where hubby & I had dinner.

My hairpins turned out really good, I just need to make some more with the skulls in different position on the pin to maximize wearing options.

Am having great fun w/hubby figuring out his costuming needs.  They have a contest at his work, and we have a party to attend as well as the 31st itself.  Fun!!!

I've recently been watching Elizabeth movies as research for my Duchess character.  In Kate Blanchette's "Elizabeth" there's a hairstyle she has that's been on my mind.  Its from the beginning of the film when she's a young girl living in the country.  So, I'm thinking about this and thinking of how I might emulate it and while this is certainly not that, it just sort of evolved from the idea.

...
...
...

And since its October:
...

Maybe someday I'll figure out the original style.

I'm feeling a bit bummed.  The silver and black brocade I like so very much was not approved for my costume.  I can use it on accessories and as trim but not as the forepart of my skirt.  Dang it!  I need to go fabric hunting again.   Cry
