Hello friends! It's been awhile... :)
Earlier this month, my sister and I attended a costume party- and I thought I'd share my hairstyle with you all- it was the most amazingly-awesome hair-do I have ever had the pleasure of co-creating/wearing.
The idea/design was mine, but my sister is the one who did all of the pinning everything in place- because it's ever so much easier to see what you're doing when it's not your own head!
Oh, & I got bangs about a month ago!
Lest you think all of that is my own hair, I shall confess.
However, not all of it was still attached to my head. I made a hairpiece out of an old nylon stuffed with hair I'd saved from my brush (which sounds kinda gross...) and I barrette-ed that to my head, and pinned my hair over. It worked marvelously. :)
I went as Eris; Greek goddess of chaos, strife and discord.
Before you think I'm a super-weird-o for going as the goddess of discord, let me explain;
When I was trying to decide what to go as, I remembered I had this dress (thrifted!) probably from the 70's, and it reminded me of a greek/roman style dress, so I was like "Awesome! I'll be a Greek goddess!"
So then, then question was- which one? Athena? I have owl earrings...
Then, I remembered the little golden apple Christmas ornament I own. I scrubbed off the existing words, and had "To The Fairest" written on it.
Now, which goddess was it again who threw a golden apple, and by proxy started The Trojan War?
I Googled it.
Ah. Okaaaay... Eris, goddess of chaos, strife and discord.
Bathroom selfie! Yay!
So that's who I went as, and it was great fun.
I wore combat boots with my dress- because it was snowy, (and don't combat boots seem like the sort of thing the goddess of strife would wear?) and because my golden slippers which I would have worn otherwise, stuck like velcro to my (polyester) dress if they touched.
& surprisingly enough, the great quantities of hair/fake-hair-for-poofiness pinned to my head didn't even give me a headache! :)
