Oh so pretty.. I feel pretty and witty and gay..

I was dared to enter this, so I am.

*AFTER CHALLENGE*

Hahaha.. great comments everyone. I'm glad I could bring some humor and lightheartedness to the challenge.

For those with comments on my makeup:
My 8 year old charge (not daughter, I'm only her nanny), did my makeup for me. If it's not all that professional, that's why. Still, for 8 years old, I think she did a *bang up* job of it, and I'm really proud of her. Thank you so much Bree!!

For those comments on my shaving/glitter on the shirt:

This photo wasn't taken for the challenge, it was taken for my PaD. By the time I decided to put it in the challenge, the makeup was long since gone and I wasn't going to reshoot just for those minor inconveniences.. trust me, they'd have been dealt with if it was advanced editing, but it wasn't. Picky, picky ;)


This is the first time I'd ever worn makeup, but it was fun. I doubt I'll do it again all that often... but who knows. Glad y'all enjoyed it, even if I did get a bunch of lower votes because of some people that may have been turned off by it.. luckily, those people stayed out of the comments :)

Have fun out there everyone, and a reminder to try and get out of the mold now and then and have fun on here.

I remember you now! Didn't we have the most incredible one-night-stand ever? It was an evening of romance, adventure, and carnal pleasure I'll never forget.

That's simply... terrifying. Like the lipstick shade, tho. Might want to get a bit closer on the neckline shave. And brush the glitter off the shirt.

Very interesting. I bet you are getting a polarized voting pattern on this one. The lighting is well done as is the sharpness. I wish he'd shaved some of the straggle whiskers off his neck. For basic editing, nicely done. 8

You know, if you photoshop in hair, and photoshop out the facial hair, and rounded the jawline a bit...bah, never mind. You're *still* a really ugly woman!!
(Technically, this is great - good lighting, good colors, excellent "glam" fashion look - at the same time satirical and complimentary. You get a 10.)

I am luving this one!

Novel approach! And pretty good shot, too. Now about the makeup application...

No wonder you feel pretty, you look pretty! LOL
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/24/2006 09:46:06 PM
LMAO! Wow - that looks great on you! I only 2 small gripes. One of them being the little specks of white on your collar. And it looks a bit over sharpened.

Just too weird looking for me! Makes me miss Boy George! 10!

02/24/2006 05:17:03 PM
Like the look you captured in his eyes. Like the skin tones and highlights in the eyes. Sharp. The sparkles make the shot. 10

02/23/2006 05:08:33 PM
I really like this photo, I think it's easily one of the most interesting of the challenge. I don't know where it'll end up in the final tally, but I hope to see it do well.

That's just TOO freaky! Must have been for some theatrical performance or something?

02/23/2006 12:21:04 AM

hehe... fun entry.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/22/2006 10:13:19 PM
Oh-My-God. :-)...

I just poped into the challenge to take a look while waiting for something to run on my main PC at work... I nearly spit my coffee across the table looking at the thumbnail, and the full image didn't disapoint.

Great stuff, thanks for the laugh Glen..
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/22/2006 09:39:04 PM
Wow... interesting spin! The focus is sharp and clear... well lit. I like the catchlight in the eyes. A well executed photo... which, as you intended, is a bit disturbing. Title just set it off. Well done.

02/22/2006 09:06:43 PM
Oh man, that creeped me out. Nice shot tho.

02/22/2006 03:13:52 PM
The more I look at this, the more it looks like it was taken backstage at a drag show. Which of course just screams 'Fashion!' to me. :) Have to say that the lighting on this is great, and the blue eyeshadow really brings out the blue in your eyes. The title is just perfect for the shot.
(Oh, and by the way, this has been critiqued as "That's just silly!" by a six-year-old photography critic. Higher praise you cannot get!)

I feall scared... Just joking, good idea
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/22/2006 01:30:24 PM
Anyone that will put makeup on theirself and actually post it on the internet for their art deserves a 10. And you got one from me. You are the man! err yeah I think thats right.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/22/2006 01:13:41 PM
Great shot! Lighting is excellent, face has the right expression and it works!!!! well done

I just bet you do. The glitter is just over the top :) Did you put this on yourself or did your kids help? This is just too funny!

02/22/2006 07:09:18 AM
well well well...you are a funny one Mr. Artyste! You need a lesson in blending your eyeshadow but I think you have pulled off the rest pretty darn good (maybe add some earrings next time?)
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/22/2006 06:43:16 AM

02/22/2006 12:41:46 AM
This is too bizarre to be ignored. And it's nicely-made to boot. The couble catchlights are terrific, the sparkles are to die for, and the lipstick shows the touch of a master. Even the 5-o'clock shadow adds dimension to this profoundly metaphorical comment on the place of the artist in these troubled times.

Nice.
