The splendor and the wonder

I hate posting pics of myself (I hate taking them, so I rarely do), but I have to show off my cool new hair! I went for my pre-VVC cut and color and I couldn't decide what to do for my hair, but I knew I wanted something pretty dramatically different. I was thinking of either doing a ruby/burgundy red with something else, or what I was really leaning towards, a silvery grey/lilac like Kelly Osbourne's hair here. I'm probably one of the only people who likes her hair like that, but I do. ANYways, I ended up opting for a burgundy shade with flame red and violet sections, and I really like it! I think I would have liked the Kelly hair, too, though. Maybe next time. I have a feeling it will already be fading by con time, but here's what it looked like today -- each picture looks a little different because for some reason, the three separate colors only came out in different light (the ruby in sun, the flame in shade, and the violet in indirect sun). Go figure. Just ignore my fat ugly face.


And an extra pic of Mr. Baby, who had to check out the camera. Poor little guy, he's really wilting in the heat and so scared of the fan.


Something I've meant to say for a long time and I never remember/think to do: If anyone wants to do a podfic recording of any of my stories, you are more than welcome to. I'd love to know about it if you do, but this is blanket permission. Also, if you want to pick up after a story or continue something of mine, you're welcome to, I'd just love an acknowledgement. Snady worked on me about this for years, and I wish I'd had the chance to tell her I'd changed my tune about things.

I can hardly believe it's five days till VVC. Augh! Five days!!! WTF. How did that happen? I need to make some dvds and get my shit together. I do have a fabulous outfit for Club Vivid (and now fabulous hair), but I don't think I have a single other thing ready. Entirely unprepared. Gah. If all goes well (and it rarely does with O'Hare) I should be in the hotel by 3 or so.

Oooh! I love that color! My hair used to be that deep burgundy color but I never had the moxie to do the variegated bits, but I wish I had. It looks great. And the face underneath, too.

Very cool hair, both colour and cut. I hear your moan about not having things ready, but you're much further than I am. My pre-VVC haircut will happen after VVC, I'm afraid. And Club Vivid will have to do with black trousers and shirt because there is no outfit. As long as I'm getting ME to the con, I'm counting it as a win. You are coming in on Thursday I guess?

You look gorgeous, and I LOVE the hair!

I love the color and cut of your hair. Very flattering on you.

Yay! You look great! I love it. The cut really suits you. And I always consider doing streaky things to my hair and then chicken out, so I think it's totally awesome that you went for it. I may do a temporary streaky thing for Club Vivid, but I'm waiting till after the next promotion before I try anything permanent. =D

I'm really looking forward to seeing you at VVC. ZOMG less than a week!

Aug. 6th, 2012 10:29 pm (UTC)

I wasn't sure you were coming either, YAY! My grin is THIS big!
Aug. 7th, 2012 02:09 pm (UTC)
Your grin is scaring me. We're gonna need a bigger con.

It looks fabulous! I like the shape, too.

I desperately need a haircut, but my stylist is on vacation. Woe.

I really dig it! Although I do like the lilac shade, too.

I will see you at VVC!

we're rushing to catch up with VVC travel prep. Major jiggering of family expectations took the longest.

btw, this will be xlorp's first time as an attending member. He's still a bit befuddled about hoe it happened.

when are you arriving? Can't wait to see you,

You look lovely. And so does your hair.
Aug. 6th, 2012 06:36 am (UTC)
You look fabulous! That is so cool!
Aug. 6th, 2012 11:15 am (UTC)
I love all the shades in your hair! So pretty! And your face is pretty, too. Also? Adorable cat. So, basically, a winning post all around!

You look awesome! And also... kind of badass? Cool aviator glasses + punk rock hair = "don't mess with me or I will CUT YOU." Heee!
