The reason why this post is late is because my laptop’s wifi card died and I was putting off logging into my blog’s account via the computer because it’s ‘too much of a hassle’. But those are super lies. I’ll be transferring my things on my laptop to my desktop soon.
I wanted to shoot a headband I made and do just headshots for this post because…
a) my fashion-related talents are not just limited to sewing,
b) my wig collection is so big that it would be a shame not to showcase it, and
c) it gives me to opportunity to get back into the habit of using makeup as a form of self-empowerment.
This headband is one I made for my pair of lavender looks for Sacramento Fashion Week last year (fourth picture above). I think making matching accessories to my garments really helps drive the overall message of a ‘look’ home. It was one of the only headpieces I have that matches my most outrageous wig– this Rainbow Rock in Spring Bouquet by RockStar Wigs! The wig was purchased about four years ago because I needed a wig in a raspberry pink in order to match an EGL ensemble. I now want to use this wig in more shoots and fashion shows!
The wig is paired with Rock-a-Lash’s Lashing Out Loud (top lashes only). My face is covered with foundation, hot pink and purple eyeshadow, purple eyeliner, black Wet-N-Wild liquid eyeliner, mascara, pinky blush, and a raspberry pink lipstick to match the pink in the wig.
I plan on making new headpieces soon for the shop– they will all probability be anywhere from $8 – $35 depending on how elaborate they are. The whole shop is going to be revamped, so stay tuned to see what I will (literally) have in store for you all!
For those who still need their hands on some pastels or fashions with a butterfly motif, I’ve picked out a few items for you to view! Enjoy~
I am back and ready to roll after such an amazing wedding and honeymoon in Hawaii! To start off February, I am going to post about the amazing fashion-related vendors that worked with us for our wedding. The complete list of vendors can be found on our wedding blog, here (most are Sacramento-area specific): [http://seanandginaiwata.blogspot.com/p/thank-you_22.html].
