Again the urge struck me this evening to play for a while - and this time two sets of lashes on each eye. They're still a tad tricky to put on but I'm getting better at it - not perfect yet but then they're el cheapo lashes - better quality ones might be easier to apply.

I seem to be going for the slightly bonkers look tonight Smile

Im struggling slightly with directional lighting, wondering whether it would sit better if it were more full frontal .. so to speak,
But I love this on so many levels, Liza Minelli, Clockwork Orange... and also meets.. ? Its just genius Smile

Thanks everyone - I'll admit to not starting out with any kind of theme at all but once I put the lower lashes on I figured the bowler was the logical accessory Smile I almost rooted out a white shirt & tie but quite frankly couldn't be arsed to clear the way to the wardrobe to get them out.

Which is another reason the lighting could be better K. - I did think that the softbox up front might work better but the 'studio' is such a flipping tip at the moment it was easier to stick with the beauty dish to the side. If I can fit it in this weekend, I'll give the room a blitz and try again as I do like this extreme lash look Smile

Maybe I'll see if I can cobble up a Cabaret style outfit which, given the ridiculous amount of dressing up clothes I have, won't prove too difficult!

Oh thanks for the mod Michael - nice treatment and, as usual, food for thought. It's not so much getting my inspiration back as finding the time to play - it's been a rather busy few weeks and things aren't really going to quieten down for a few more yet.....

A rather late thank you again everyone and thank you very much Peta for your award - very much appreciated Smile

I did/do have plans to do some self portraits this weekend but have been too busy messing about in the garden instead. Who knows, maybe inspiration will strike yet tomorrow.....
