In her New Year blog post, Strawberrry Singh came up with many resolutions that we, her readers, should / could be achieving this year. I thought that was a fantastic idea since I'm one who makes and promptly breaks any resolve I generate. I vow to accomplish as many as I can over the next year.
So I decided to tackle #2 on her list - "Try a mesh head and wear it for at least 24 hours". To me, this really was pushing myself. I've tried many...and I mean MANY...demos of mesh heads. They all have their wonderful features and some of the expressions are great for photos BUT once I have the head on, with makeup and hair and the whole thing, I look at myself and I don't see me! I never seem to be myself and I start to feel squirmy in my own likeness. However, I wasn't about to break a resolution before I even started so I decided to go forward.
I re-read Berry's #2 careful and decided to follow what she said. I went to Genesis Lab to have a look at their sale. The heads were better priced but I decided if I joined the group (for 250L) I could get the Christmas gift and work off that and the skin appliers were free. I think that was a good plan. I flew home and applied the new head. Hmmmm....not me...at least I didn't think so. But I persevered. I got up; put on some cute hair; new lipstick; new sweater and stayed like that for 2 days. So...what do you think????
It kinda grew on me. I admit after 2 days I didn't mind it. However, the head didn't come with blinking eyes so the stare got to me after awhile. I wasn't as happy with the skin as my "own" but that could be remedied. I seem to look sullen, a bit of attitude with my new look. But...it wasn't all bad! Will I wear it all the time? No. Often? Probably not. Sometimes? Maybe. At least I'll keep getting the new demos and I might find one yet that is the real me.
Good Night for now.
