Outfit: Before We Begin...

Lately I've really been inspired by becoming a different person. It's almost like the person in these photos isn't even me- and I like it that way because it shows how diverse my skills are when making myself up to look like a fantasy person rather than reality. It's a sort of escape from every day life and I truly feel beautiful when I dress up in my wigs and eyelashes. I feel like no one can judge me regardless of what I'm wearing- I'm in my comfort zone when I'm wearing a wig. I certainly don't wear them to work, though... they are just for fun. I think it's also really thrilling when people actually think it's my real hair! I love fooling people, haha! It's all good intentions, though. I can't help but feel I am practicing for something bigger and more elaborate in the future, though.... That is still what I am trying to figure out. This is my favorite wig as of late- and I bought it in Uptown at a huge warehouse there where they are more than happy to let me try on all the wigs my heart desires. I went to Nathan Adhikari's studio for these photos. He's always an amazing friend up for anything. Thank you, Nathan! As for the weather- it's turning to Spring around here... I can feel it. I can't wait to get out of the studio and back on the streets of Chicago for my shoots! Happy (soon to be) Spring! Is it turning to Spring where you are? Which photo is your favorite? XO

Firmoo Glasses Review

I really enjoy wearing these Firmoo glasses around even though they are clear lenses and I actually have 20/20 vision- but who doesn't like to act like a different person or at least change up their look once in a while? Maybe when I actually need glasses one day, I'll put prescription lenses in these. I really do see myself wearing them in the future when I actually need them! Naturally, I was curious what I would look like wearing reading glasses, now I know! These glasses came with their own polishing cloth and protective case, as well! They are so fun! Thank you, Firmoo .
