This was a fun day for me. I am that uncomfortable in front of the camera, that I actually find it is good education to be doing just that. Not only in front of the camera, but being seen through the lens of the great Bambi Cantrell. I've modeled for her classes before and each time it is a huge learning curve. When I put my subjects in uncomfortable poses so they can look good...I know exactly how it feels! I've done it!
This particular time, I showed up to the makeup artist at 7:00 in the morning. Yes... 7:00 in the morning, Vegas time. I was musing that 6-7:00 in the morning in Vegas has to be the quietest time of the day there. Peggy did my make-up, did my hair, and put silver body paint and rhinestones on me until about 11:30, right before lunch. I was stunned at how I looked. Dark make-up, blond faux-hawk, and a silver-lace-pattern all up my left arm and over my shoulder and onto my back. It was an ensemble that had to go together in order to look good. I went down to the tradeshow and found Bambi where she took me into the bathroom and dressed me up in a beautiful couture gown made out of garbage bags. It was gorgeous, sexy, and very comfortable to wear because it was made out of a stretchy material. I would totally wear that out on the town.
Here's my hair and makeup after I got it done (It's times like this where I wish I could have followed myself around with better equipment and a different perspective):
Here's me in that black garbage bag outfit! There is more to come!!!
