Worn: November 8, 2013
I stepped away from the blog for a bit while planning a roleplaying game campaign I was going to gamemaster. The campaign went pretty well, but by then I was out of the habit of posting, as well as playing in three campaigns other than the one I was running.
But assure you I still wore clothing throughout this period. Sometimes I even took pictures of it. I currently have a backlog of eighteen photoshoots taken after this one, which I intend to post at a rate of one a week. I'm not sure I can average one new photoshoot a week, but it should be at least six months before I have to worry too much about that.
Lynn, unlike me, has never been much of a fan of bangs. I started wearing them a bit longer and over to the side for her, but I wasn't pleased with the amount of forehead I was exposing. So, around this time, I started recruiting hair from further over, on the other side of my part, to fill in the open space. It was a much higher maintenance hair style and the two sections proved reluctant to remain smoothly blended together, as this post and the next few will show. But Lynn liked it a lot and I eventually achieved a look that I think works pretty well for me.
I mixed light blue nail polish into a base of black nail polish, hoping to match the color of my dress. Diluting the black revealed a bit of a muddy green tinge, so I wouldn't the effort a great success. But I like the idea. Sometime I ought to pick up a proper navy blue nail polish.
