Vintage 3

I'm not as thrilled with this one as I was with the previous two - I don't think I got my makeup quite right - but there are two more in the pipeline that I'm quite excited about.

This was a dressing gown passed to me by my mother. I'm pretty sure she got it cheaply from a shop in Chinatown in Honolulu. It's very worn, but that just makes it even softer and cooler on hot days. You can probably deduce that it got a lot more use when I was living in California than it does now.

It's... a little zombie to be perfectly honest. :-D
Certainly not up to the standards of the last couple.

Makeup's not exactly right and neither is the lighting on my face. The lighting on the gown is good, though.

Actually, the makeup and the pose together make me think of Lillian Gish. I can't find the exact still that I am thinking of (or even remember which film it was from- I saw it in some film history class in like, 1997), but these are close:

Ooer, I like that first one. That'd be fun to try and recreate!

I think the comments after the article (well, some of them) provide a broader picture of the myriad obstacles facing women scientists than the article alone.

They're all precious links to memory for me, these clothes. :)

You know, I like this one a lot. It looks very... I don't know, haunting.

Thank you. I think if I were to print it, it would age well.

The thing I love most about this is how much it looks painted - really amazing.

I think it's the texture of the nightgown that gives that impression. I got the lighting on that right, at least!
