you've never seen me like this before

I've never seen myself like this before, either!

I agreed to help a hair and make-up stylist by posing for pictures to add to his portfolio. Apparently, my short hair and bone structure can take a lot of fun, over-the-top styling. Everything I know about primping for photos comes from America's Next Top Model. But, a love-hate obsession with that show was not enough to help me here. The shoot was hard! I didn't know what to do with myself. Anytime I tried to show some attitude, I crumpled my face up - that doesn't look good at all on film. As Tyra would say, it wasn't ugly-pretty, just ugly-ugly. I don't expect the plus size division of Elite Model Management will come calling for me anytime soon, but I suppose I don't look too bad here despite my very round head. The best photos from the shoot are under copyright to the stylist so I can't share them. By the by, those are not my regular eyebrows.

Great photos! I love short hair. This could be an 80s album cover. :)
