It’s pretty crazy that it’s been almost a year since I started this blog! Lately, I’ve been looking back at old posts and trying not to crack up! They’re…interesting. I’ve been loving this week, because I feel like it’s when the Christmas Festivities kick in. We’ve already made Chewy Molasses Cookies (a tradition!) and put up our tree!
I’ve also started a new book, it’s called, “Becoming Madeleine”. It’s a biography of Madeleine L’engle (the author of A Wrinkle in Time) and it’s written by her two granddaughters. It’s really interesting and different.
Ok, so ever since I was really little, I wanted to dye my hair. My color preference changed from pink to blue to purple to navy. Finally, I found a brand called Manic Panic. It’s really natural, and only $11. I’ve already tried a pink. Here’s a photo of that:
Anyway, it lasts two weeks and even works on brown hair!
Ok so, this is what we’ve been waiting for! (I hope) Over all, I’m not really in to scary Halloween costumes, so FINALLY, I came up with a strawberry! I tried not to make it look too costume-ish (Thank you Project Runway!) So here it is!:
So, I know the model is a little funky-looking, but I guess it’s the design that really counts. Besides, this is like one out of a million drafts (it took FOREVER). But I really like the ruffles on the costume, I think it looks really strawberry-ish.
Now, I think we should have a new vote! Let’s see….Oooh, what about Cool and Fresh or Girly and Fun. (Not that Cool and Fresh wouldn’t be).
Here is my next sketch, (probably my favorite) I basically took a lot of purples, blues, and pinks and mixed them together. After that, I drew over it with a white colored pencil and I smudged it with my finger. It made a really cool effect that REALLY looked like a galaxy. (I would usually say the galaxy, but I just finished my space unit in science and realized there are a LOT more than one) Also, I really love the way it’s out of proportion. It looks pretty cool. Here it is!:
I hope you like it! Make sure to keep commenting about Halloween Costume or Edgy Outfit! (It will probably be ready around Halloween)
I know, I know I should wait for comments for edgy outfit or cool costume, but this is too fun! So this next one I imagine that the top would be red and the skirt would be a caramel color. (I would think the sunglasses would be white and I didn’t include the feet because…they just did NOT turn out. So, here it is!:
Also, please keep commenting for edgy outfit or cool costume!
