Fashion Show:Spring 2011

this will be a very very very 
photo filled post
will minimal words
you will love it

Saturday was the Purdue Fashion Show.
some of us woke up at 5 am, some of us woke up at 10 am.
i was one of those 5 am-ers.
im not sure i could do the real life model thing. 
too much work 
we met at the sewing lab
which had been transformed from counters, dress forms, and machines, into a world of half awake women {someguys} cracked out on caffeine. 
there was no escaping it. 
the estrogen and hairspray trapped you in the room.
there were curling irons, blow dryers, foundation bottles, applicators, bagels, coffee cups and hairspray from floor to ceiling.
its finally 6 am, 
time to buck up 
time to transform my simple self into a model
starts off with hair 
it was teased to high hell and back
not only teased to make it tall 
but to make it like
huge huge
she teased what was already teased
after the wrecking of my hair is complete its to be pinned 
and tucked
and curled
and tucked some more
a little more pinning 
and a layer or 5 of
Vinyl Acetate
perhaps a little gum arabic
and some

next up
we had the amazing joy of having 
do our makeup
she was, seriously, a god
she was so nice 
and didnt freak when i kept complaining
it was her first time doing bright colors 
but you could not tell at all
i was terrified when it came time for the tarantulas, 
i mean fake eyelashes
to go on
until 20 min later
then i forgot i even had them on

after hair and makeup it was time for coffee
oh hells yes please
its now 10 am
5 hours in a room that was literally foggy from fumes
the only reason we were all smiling and still awake is because we high, 
all 50 of us were totally high from the hairspray fumes

i do realize how creepy i look.
dont judge


 omigosh. how in love are you guys with Kimbles makeup.
friggen mermaid.
