20. Incorporate glitter

Again, the glitter will show in the makeup photo.

And here’s the evening outfit I alluded to!  It’s a little blurry, because I took it around 5 pm, but I looked so good that I wanted to post it anyway.  My friends and I went to the Actual Literal Opera, so naturally I decided to go all-out and dress the hell up.  (The choker was a loan from my friend–not the one of the ones I went with, though.)

I wanted to keep my hair in the “updo” from the afternoon but the back was not cooperating, so I took it down and just used a big clip.

[Image description: one full-body photo of a young woman (me) with bobbed, light pink hair that’s pulled back into a half-ponytail with a clip.  I’m standing in front of a grey wall and holding a metallic, pink cane in my left hand.  I’m wearing a sleeveless, dark red velvet dress with a plunging V-shaped neckline, an empire waist, and a skirt that ends right at my knees.  Under it, I have on black-and-grey mottled tights; just a hint of pink tape is showing through the tights on the side of my left knee.  I’m wearing black pumps with a strap across the top of my foot.  I have on big silver-and-black earrings shaped like swords, and a huge silver-and-black choker with various bits hanging off the front.  I also have on dark red lipstick.  As always, I’m wearing my round black glasses.]

Tumblr is divided between the clown fuckers and the fish fuckers and it’s all hilarious to me. haha! XD

Guillermo is such an inspiration to me right now, honestly. Unapologetic and earnest and honest: “this is what moves me, these beautiful images speak to my heart on a deep level, this subject matter is worthy of my highest artistry.”

I love monster romance more than anything else, but I get embarrassed by how very much I love it. I don’t trust my ability to make people understand it or see it the way I do. I downplay its impact on me.

The goal is to get to a place where you trust in what moves you, what you find beautiful, as much and as shamelessly as Guillermo does. To trust in your ability to communicate the way it makes you feel. To make deeply personal projects. He is my hero.

Describe your OC’s eyes without using color or shape terms. Are they bright, contemplative, wise, intense, empty, etc.?
