Happy Halloween!

Am a witch this year, yes, a blond and purple witch. No more are the sissy days when I used to dress up as an elf or a faery.

No, Halloween is a holiday of scares and horror, glitters won't do...if you're older then 10, that is. Don't care if girls at daycare dress up as glittery faery princesses. They all will anyway, it's like a tradition. Some girls won't show up as anything else, and the few who express wishes to go as Hermione Granger or the likes face a refusal from obsessive mothers who want their little girly girls to be as pretty and glittery as humanly possible. No way their little precious is gonna dress up in a drab old brown wig and black robe, not even if that's what they want.

Ugh!It feels like Christmas. All the little girls springing around in their pretty dresses. When I have a daughter, she is going to go as anything she damn well wants. Be it a bloody vampire, I will gladly help out to put on fangs. What is wrong with being scary on Halloween? It isn't Disney princesses day!

Henna can love or hate you

Recently got over my irrational fear of the wonderful natural product that is Henna.

That is, am conscious that it can do horrible things to previously chemically abused hair like mine, but discovered new kind of product, Henna based that is supposed to not turn hair baby-diarrhea-green or tar black and feeling like decomposing noodles.

So the first time I used the stuff, I picked the auburn color, and God! it turned my hair Tori-Goddess like.
Ultra soft and a nice, shiny reddish tint that was supposed to stay 4-5 shampoos. They felt full, incredible, I fell in love with the product. So after a few weeks I tried the Golden light brown one. When I came out of the shower, gave a yelp of terror and starred at the empty box with daggers and accusation in my eyes screaming WHY!? WHY!? I trusted you!!
What was supposed to turn golden brown turned dark reddish brown at the roots and black at the tips. Looked just horrible, was really not ready to go back to bi-colored freak yet.

So I washed 3 times in a row in a desperate attempt to wash the excess color away. Which only served to make the roots even paler and more freakishly noticeable. *sigh* The ends never lightened.
Did the same thing the night after, and it kind of evened out a bit...the tips at the front were still very black so did the first thing that came to my mind and I murdered those treacherous tips.

It was done in a fit of craziness and rage, but still, am now pretty happy with my new bangs. Bangs fit me well.:) I'll just have a few more explanations to give the hair-dresser next time I go for a cut...which is very rare, come to think of it...

The Corpse Bride...

Was really excited to go see Tim Burton's new movie "Corpse Bride". Very cool, loved the colors and characters, those movies always have a great design and style to them. Since then, have been obsessed about making myself a corpse bride costume for Halloween. Forget about Amy Lee, Emily rocks. Realised after a while though, that would have hard time making self look like corpse, as have way to much meat on bones to achieve it. Perhaps I'll need another idea....BUT! Made me think that probably found the perfect costume for Mary-Kate Olsen! Now look at that picture, and tell me it isn't just ideal for the girl.
