Spooky Ghouls at Cobweb Club “Undead” Jan 25, 2013

A few posts ago I mentioned the upcoming Cobweb Club with the theme “Undead”. Well – I went…and so did a spooktacular bunch of other assorted monsters, demons and ghouls. Wanna see some fab pics? Read on…

For my inspiration, I went no further than the fabulous “Hush” episode of Buffy The Vampire Slayer – and those creepy silent hovering men, the Gentlemen.

The Leopard Lounge Hair Salon Newtown

But with the fullness of hair extensions (still in from Singapore), it looks just great! I got a smallish area near the ear shaved down to a number 2, and left a little trigger area just in front of the ear.
