Yesterday, I got to go to 3rd Annual Great Gatsby Picnic hosted by Ken and Suzanne Comontofski of Style in Time costuming group. It was such a wonderfully fun time, not to mention a time of peace and tranquility. The weather was lovely, not to hot, not too cold thanks to the wonderful breeze that lent itself to the afternoon.
For my hair for this day, I did some research to see what medium length hair was styled like. I found many examples of curled hair as opposed to the Marcel Wave and the straight bob with the cute little swoop of hair at the cheek bone. I was so happy that I found it because I was entertaining a hair cut (like when I first cut my long hair in the fashion of The Honorable Phryne Fisher), but Pinterest saved me again!!!
Before I went to the picnic, I went to Mom and Dad's farm so that my Mama could take some pictures of me wearing my new ensemble with her awesome sauce camera! I keep trying to abscond with her camera, but she keeps thwarting my efforts...So, here they are. Mom is such a wonderful photographer and did a great job making me look pretty! Thanks Mama!
|I photo shopped some of my pics to make them look a little more vintage.....|
|Mom said, "Get a stick and play in the water..." I was like, "Are you crazy?" But as usual, Mama knows best and the pictures actually turned out great! We both almost ended up in the stream when she helped me up from this position! hahahahahahaha!!!|
|Bravely fording the stream....No, I didn't fall in!|
Now for the photoshopped "Vintage" images. I love looking at the pictures from the 1920s. They did some really silly poses that actually look good! I tried to emulate those poses...some of them looked absolutely ridiculous and some of them turned out good!
