For the ethnic make up theme I choose a voodoo priestess. I bought some fabric for a head wrap, and the rest of the costume is fabric the school had. I hand made the tooth necklace, and many other props that didn’t make it into these photos, such as a death rattle and a voodoo doll.
Here are 2 of the best shots, though i ended up submitting the candle picture as my final image.
So Aryn and I were going to go snowboarding Saturday but I really wasn’t feeling it. I by chance got an email from some one needing a last min make up artist for an interesting photoshoot, so i choose to do that while Aryn went to the hill to tear it up.
I haven’t gotten all of the photos back yet but here is basically what i did.
Only thing I wanted from the shoot as payment was all the RAW photos taken. I mean before cropping, before, deleting repeat shots, and most of all BEFORE any photoshop
So far he’s only sent me a few shots, and some i can tell have been touched. I hope he does send me the raw photos as agreed. We’ll see.
So what do you think? It was kind of a rush job, and last min, I went in with no idea what i was doing and no plan.
Sunday Aryn and I went snowboarding. We have some free all day pass’s that include rental, and also a few private lesson passes. I’ve been skiing twice with my dad, about 10 years ago lol, so this is new. My winter coat and snow pants are in storage at my moms back in the koots, so we went to value village to see what we could find. Black snow pants my size were easy, but we also scored a REALLY awesome ski jacket for only $20! It was practically new, and as a bonus it didn’t look ugly as shit. SCORE! So happy we found that, so i didn’t freeze my ass off.
We didn’t make it in time for lessons, but we booked some private lessons for next weekend. This time around Aryn just showed me what he knew. He suggested I leave my glasses in the locker so they wouldn’t get damaged or fog up, so i did. Learning the basics was easy enough, i still need to learn to work my feet better. Aryn is an ok teacher, but he’s kinda vague and some need to know points i felt. He was off his board, but didn’t want me holding on to him for support, he wanted me to kinda dive in like he did. I didn’t like that very much. Also once i got going and wanted to stop, (he was behind me and could stop me), he would say “but you’re doing so good!” and wouldn’t stop me, but i was bloody terrified and wanted to stop NOW. But i think the root of the problem was that i didn’t have my glasses, I couldn’t see, i had tunnel vision and everything was blurry. So I told him that felt in order to do this i needed them. He has a weaker prescription then me so he left his glasses in the locker, but i think my eyes are just lazier or something because he can see father then I with out glasses. After i put on my glasses it was like this:
Only with vision instead of walking. :lol
Who would have guessed what terrifed me the most was not sliding down a hill… but doing it while blind :p
Also I talked to my BF about the ‘stopping’ thing, and i said that it has to be like having sex; if the lady says ‘stop’ you bloody well stop! :lol
He agreed finally, and after that is was WAY better. I got the hang of it more and more every time, and he was impressed by how fast i was picking it up.
Here’s me at the bottom of the hill after a run, just about to unlatch my board when Aryn took this photo of me ^.^.
Yes, those are bunny ears on my hat :3
It was getting late and Aryn was colder then me which is strange, but then again he wasn’t sporting as epic of a coat as I. Also we were getting hungry, so we called it a day and went home. Well… we got some sushi, and then went home and watched the documentary “alien planet”. :p
I can’t wait until next weekend, we’re giving some of our passes to our friends to come with us if they can make the time. It’s sure to be fun. So if you are a friend of mine, live in Vancouver and want to hit the slopes next weekend, send me an inbox!
