first off I have a question.
How the blazes did my sweet little niece go from this
What on earth happened? did I sleep for a dozen years? Help!
for the record she doesn’t normally wear that much makeup. This was for a 60s party for her best bud Carly.
Martin and I were invited too. Actually mother and I made the cake, so she sorta HAD to invite us, but she also made a point of saying that she adores us and wanted us there with or without the cake. Sweet kid.
To be honest I wasn’t expecting much. I mean it’s a theme party for teenagers. Some of the most selfconcious beings on the planet, right? and it’s the 60s. a VERY SILLY season in the fashion world. But my word these kids got INTO it, therefore we did too. Martin went all out:
Including jeans with hand drawn art by yours truly. I’ve never really drawn on jeans before, but wow it was fun! Look out world, I think I’ve found my new calling. Wearable ART!
Here are some samples:
the Mermayde one got better later as I colored it in and added shading. I’ll post a photo of it in more detail some other time.
The birthday girl is in a band and she got to rock out for all her friends. Child’s got skilz ya’ll. Look out Joan Jet this little bit of a thang can wail.
So here we were, in full Peace-Time party gear
I know, I know. I really needed a flower in my hair. Sorry. I’ll do better next time.
