Belle Ghoul at Small's

MC played trumpet with the dance rock/indie pop rumpus known as Belle Ghoul last Friday, Sept. 11th, a band comprised of some of the most delightful fucking musicians we've ever met. I brought my camera, but realized during the drive there that the batteries in my speedlight were dead. This meant relying on slow shutterspeeds or my on-board flash, both of which sort of made the pictures look a little bit fucked--but in a super cool, rock and roll sort of way.

Right at the end, MC turned the camera on me. You'd think from this photo that I'd had to do something a lot more strenuous than taking photos at a great show!

The Collars Love: Irresistible Me

Recently, we were contacted by the wonderful folks at Irresistible Me. They wanted to know if we were interested in reviewing some of their gorgeous sets of clip in hair extensions. Luckily, we were just beginning to plan a shoot around an outfit that would require extensions for an up-do--with my hair being way too short for an up-do made of my own hair! It seemed like perfect timing. So they sent us this helpful video on matching your hair color to their extensions, and I gave them my specs: their Royal Remy hair extensions at 20 inches, at a weight of 200 g. That was that.

Then, the extensions arrived. And holy cow, these were so much more incredible than I was expecting. I don't know why I was picturing them less amazing, I knew they were made of human hair. But man, these are beautiful! And Jesus, they give you a LOT of hair! So much that even though my actual hair is very short, I was still able to clip in the extensions for a totally convincing long look. It was just too amazing. We knew right then that we had to do a separate shoot to showcase these extensions in all their long and lustrous glory. 

You guys know how short my hair is in reality. It feels pretty wild to suddenly have mermaid hair!

With my retro bangs serving as the basis for the look, I even ended up with kind of a cool '70s style!

Gbear and Madz wanted in on our little backyard-jungle-beach party.

 And of course, it wouldn't be long hair if I didn't get a bug in it:

The crazy thing about Irresistible Me is that they're also intensely affordable. And of course, they're even having a sale right now. I highly recommend checking them out.
