‘Tis said that wrath is the last thing in a man to grow old.

I fear my hair will never be the same. Also, I now have huge respect for people who put up tall mohawks on a regular basis, because it took a stupid amount of glue and hairspray just to get my hair up like this. I most embodied my sin while attempting to get ready; my hands were coated in glue and hair that had been yanked out by said glue, my hair kept flopping over instead of standing up straight and cool the way it was going to do in my imagination, and I was growing rapidly more frustrated.

I know that lust won my poll by a landslide, but I invited Amy to come with me to the party, and when I told her the theme, she immediately said she would just dress skanky and go as lust, and frankly, I didn’t want to compete with that. The least popular sin was gluttony, with all of one representative, who just hung out by the snack table all night.

It was one hell of a party–by the end of the night, it basically devolved into an orgy. Lust (not Amy) unbuttoned Envy’s entire button-down dress, using her mouth, Pride got jealous and started making out with Envy, Wrath (not me) ended up having her clothes torn off of her by various partygoers, and it was really a smashing way to ring in the new year. I used my extra leap-second to fire nerf weaponry, we all drank fine champagna, and now I’m off to dunk my head in a gallon of conditioner.

    that’s quite a hot look for wrath if you ask me.

      It’s womanly wrath! I thought about smearing blood everywhere, wearing black sclera contacts and just making ANGRY FACE all night, but I couldn’t get the contacts in time.

    Woo! Rockin’ makeup job, woman. I knew 80s punks who variously used egg whites and laundry starch for their spiky dos. Too much work, I always thought.

      Thanks! It’s not often that I get to use my fivehead as a canvas. 😀

      I had a friend who swore by knox gelatin for his SPECTACULAR mohawk. Hair is one of those things that I just don’t get. I can never make things come out the way I want them to, and I never understand what I’m doing wrong. I’ve actually thought about attending beauty school just to learn how to style my own goddamn hair.

        Heh, the problem with that would be that the techniques you learn are for doing shit to other people’s hair.

        Ask your stylist for some consultation time at the end of a regular appointment. She should be able to explain some things and show you techniques, although yoiu’ll probably have to pay her a bit more, which might be worth it.

        I’m re-learning what to do with my own hair the last couple of years, because since I let it grow out from ultra-short, it’s curly, when it NEVER was before. What the hell?

          Theoretically, I could probably apply at least some of the styling techniques to my own head. I need to figure out a new haircut before I make another appointment at Vain–I’m SO bored with the inverted bob thing I’ve got going now but I can’t decide what else I’d like to do. Extra scheduled consultation time is a good idea. 🙂

          My hair used to be really curly, then I had it chemically straightened when I was in Taiwan, and now it just does a halfassed wavy thing that makes it so I can never just wash and go. uuuuuuuuuuugh. Curly hair can be really fun and cute, though!

    That’s pretty frickin awesome!

      Thank you!

    (I would have unbuttoned you with my teeth just for your eye makeup. Is that a transferred on pattern somehow?)

    1. admin January 2, 2009 at 1:21 am

      😀 It’s actually super-easy to do! You just apply cream eyeshadow/paint/pigment mixed with water/seriously anything as long as it’s more wet than powdery with a sponge over a piece of fishnet stocking. When you lift the stocking away–voila! pattern. 🙂

      It bugs me that mere minutes after application, the paint in my crease is already grody.

      Pictures of the party are here.

      And thank you! <3

        “… the paint in my crease is already grody.”

        On the one hand, I want to make the joke. On the other hand, I do not want to die.

        Life is full of difficult choices.

          You may also want to factor in that I know where you live and have easy access to a variety of items that could light you on fire.

    WOO HOO!

    You chose wrath!

    I told ya, everyone would choose lust. *tsk*

    Well it sounds like you had an awesome new years.

      Wrath was allllmost as well-represented as Lust. The top three were Lust, Wrath, and Sloth.

    I knew a guy that would use raw egg to get his to stand up. One hell of a sight.
